Rants, Raves, & Random Thoughts

Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

It’s time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.

(23 August 1997, Holland) A group of employees were happy to escape work and be bussed around on a day tour by their company. It was a sunny day, and some of the more boisterous employees enjoyed sticking their heads out a rooftop window.
I can picture them like puppies enjoying the wind in their ears.
The driver of the speeding bus told them several times to pay attention to the road and stop their foolishness.
And then it happened.

Two men had their heads out of the window, singing as the wind blew across their faces, when the bus entered a viaduct. The cracking of bone was heard throughout the bus. Their heads did not come off cleanly, as you might expect, but the men fell dead into the bus with cracked heads and broken necks.
The chauffeur, asked whether safety regulations were properly observed, replied, "I always lock the damn thing when kids are in the bus, because kids just don't listen. But for God's sake, these were adults.''

OMG!! We actually had an incident like that around here a few years ago but in this case her head came clear off and her body somehow flipped into the bed of the truck. The two guys in the truck with her just thought she fell out. Oh, btw, they were all very drunk.

Lime, Sadly no...there brains were found on the rest of the passengers that sat behind them.

Snavy, I guess that just goes to show that getting drunk is no way to get... ahead in life. sorry...

lol, Carrie. Just think happy thoughts.

Yes, indeed, mom.

Steve, sadly a lot of them just use it for a hat rack.

Dana, truth is as gross as fiction, lol.
