For future reference, if I ever get to the point where either marching in or being a spectator at a parade of hikers is how I am spending my time, then please send someone to run over me too.

spicorama: I've said it before but after say 75 or so they should require yearly tests (practical tests that measure vision and reflexes).

Well, he only got 50-60 so he needs to find a good sized farmer's market to meet your threshold.

felching pen: That's it. I'm not going to any parades. Not in Virginia, not in New Orleans... they're just disaster magnets.

How about motorcades?

kittymewmewmew: Yup. Thought they were superficial as in fake, didn't realize that term existed for surface only injury.

I was picturing people faking to faint or fall over like some dash cam.

(English isn't my first language)

I can see this confusion. In English we might describe a person in those terms. "He is so superficial, he only thinks about his car. Such a fake. He's so shallow."  Effectively saying the same thing a few times, we use the word interchangeably in its slang form to refer to someone we interpret not to have a deep character.

However in the case of an injury, it becomes more literal and the slang use is not implied. It just means scrapes, bumps, bruises etc.

Was it near a farmers market or a country kitchen buffet?

Probably and Muslim Terrorist with poor spelling. He was trying to get 72 Virgins, not Virginians.
