I was minding my own business stopped for traffic and a bus in the lane next to me hit my rearview mirror! (in my truck, not on my bike) When I caught up with him he was just laughing at me!

I'd seen that train video before...the first video I thought was the train video at first.

It just goes to show how dumb people are. In the train video, you can clearly see these peoples in a straight only lane turning left into the bus. Just stupid.

And to think, we are on the streets with these people every day....

you gotta give me a train ride.

I havn't been to Union train museum for maybe 10-15 years. loved dat place.

Police officer "so why did you get hit by the train"

stupid guy "uh, the gates didn't go down, and I didn't see anything big with its headlight or loudass horn being on"

police officer "okay, no ticket for you"

I find it odd how, in many a cptured video, people that see tragedy happen to someone (like that bus where those people flew down the isle) they just sit there... I see it over and over. People will just let another human suffer in pain while they sit there and watch. I know there is always that initial "oh shit" moment, but come on. Get your ass up and help!
