FTFA: "Evidently the train was going too fast, the driver came to a curve and had to break suddenly leading to the accident"

This is Reuters, not YouTube comments. It's BRAKE. The failure to BRAKE in time caused the train to BREAK.

This is why the Congo should go back to porterage... those newfangled rails laid down by the Congo Free State will cost the lives of dozens!

Human error is always the cause when no one knows what the hell happened.

Seen the 'Parts Unknown' episode where Bourdain was in the Congo? Yep, pretty horrifying history, indeed.

I thought that would be "Act of God" considering that "God" is the answer to just about everything else we have no clue about.

That's a terrible line, subby.

The headline seems so cold for the situation but it still made me laugh. I probably would have this among my nominees for Headline of the Week.

Perhaps he was a union engineer.

When it's time to take a break, you gotta take a break.

Them's the rules!

I read it a couple of times and couldn't figure out what was so damn funny. It wasn't until after I'd finished a third of my beer that it made sense. You cheeky sod, subby, that's just what I needed after committing small-scale deforestation on my backyard. (Thistles are Nature's way of saying, "you're wearing work gloves? How cute.")
