Stupid. Had an accident on a train line this afternoon. Its been all over the news. Train carrying 13 people crashed into a truck, which had obviously seen the train but thought it could get across the line in time. Only an idiot would think that they could. Massive damage, train was derailed, and early reports suggest that at least one person is dead. Some people see those warning lights, but they try to beat the train anyway, and the train comes along and flattens them. Then the do gooders come out and say that if the crossing had boom gates, it wouldn't have happened. WTF happened to STOPPING and waiting until the train has crossed? WTF happened to looking both ways before you drive across those tracks? And when the media reports it, its always 'a train hit a truck', or a train hit a car' or 'a train hit a person'. The freaking train didn't hit anything, the idiot on the tracks hit the train! If a car is on the tracks, the car hits the train. The train has right of way. Sometimes I think that level crossing deaths are just another way of nature wiping all the idiots from the gene pool.
