I know that people break down on tracks, and for some reason stay in their vehicles as this train smashes the hell out of them. I know people use and abuse chemicals, out of all of them I have tried along the way, and I admit I have tried a couple, only alcohol would cause me to miss a damn train! I am also aware that some people use trains to commit suicide, and I in no way wish to offend or make light of their memory.
So, the question is, other than the above possibilities, How The Hell Do You Get Hit By A Train? They are these large, noisey monsters bolting down a set of tracks. You couldn't miss them nearby if you were blind, the ground vibrates like a s.o.b.
When I was a kid, I used to ride the tracks on my bike to the other end of town to my grandparent's house. No one had to tell me not to actually ride on the track, you would destroy your bike. I rode close, but when I heard and felt that freakin' train coming I would get the hell away from the tracks, stop and wait for that monster to go by.
It seems like every other day I am reading an article about another person being hit by a train. I just don't get it. If it were just politicans roaming into an oncoming trains, I wouldn't be so concerned. But the regular folks, What The Hell? Stop hanging out on the track, and when you feel the ground vibrate stay off the damned things.
To make it clear to "The Man" I was just kidding about the politicians and oncoming trains....(sarcasm again)
So I am begging all my friends who don't believe "Fox News Is The Devil" or that "President Obama Is A Muslim" to watch out, trains are getting sneaky.....and apparently they are not just going after idiots nowadays.
