CLASSIC EXAMPLE #2:
(Chicago Tribune) Hundreds of Metra commuters from the northwest suburbs were stuck aboard five stopped trains for up to an hour this morning when one of the trains struck a vehicle at a grade crossing on Chicago's Northwest Side, authorities said.
How could this happen? Trains are on rails; they follow a path. How of earth could a train, jump off the rails and strike a car.....
Preliminary police reports indicated a motorist allegedly drove around lowered crossing gates and was struck, Schnolis said.
Oh so that's what those lowered gates, red flashing lights and bells mean? I thought they were just decorations.
The driver's condition was unknown.
Boy I hope he/she is dead.

With so many sad, tragic and even normal ways to die...it's just pathetic that some people go out of their way to die like idiots.
