Some kids today are so beyond stupid I just can't begin to understand it. Here's a genius playing chicken with a train. He gets out of the way with about a half second to spare.

Although this clip is worksafe, the WEBSITE overall is NSFW.

Of course, if he hadn't gotten out of the way in time, there's definitely a good "Darwinism at work" argument to be made here.

Darwinism at its finest. He'll try a little harder next time, and get the job done right. Dipshit.

Must have watched the Program and wants to keep his edge.

Seriously though pure ignorance. I believe the gene pool is getting far too diluted.

You know, you really feel bad for the conductor guy. How scared and panicked must that guy have been? His screams probably matched the whistle of the train.

1/10 of a second more and the guy would have been rail pizza. What a dipshit. :shake:

I have never understood the concept of "chicken". Unless there is something substantial to be gained, why risk your neck on something so stupid?

We have lots of trains go by here where I live. I actually lost a friend a few years ago who got hit by a train when he crossed a country crossing where there was no crossing guard. He was blinded by the morning sun and never saw it coming. His car was so mangled that his death was probably instantaneous-sp. People here are pretty educated about trains and don't tempt fate.

Lack of air during birth, his mother had weak arms and he took one to many cranium knocks from being dropped? Who the hell knows. :shrug:

So are you saying the kid here needs to educated about trains?

Trains are big, fast moving machines.
If you get hit by train, you're dead.

End of education.

I can ride a bike with no hands or jump from a tree - both give a rush usually without life ending injuries.

I knew a guy that used to pull that crap. He'd get drunk, stand out on the tracks, and jump out of the way at the last second. What he failed to realize is that the more alcohol you drink, the slower your reflexes become. If memory serves, his teeth were scattered over several hundred feet and parts of his body were fiound a mile away.

If the guy was really cool, he'd try riding a bike with no hands towards the train and then swerving away at the last second. While blindfolded.

Until then, he's just a poser.

Only takes one lesson. But then that's all you get. Period. :)

his biggest mistake was not jumping the opposite way he ran onto the tracks, either that or he needs to hit the weight room and get some more spring in his step.....

a clearcut case for 'roids if I ever heard it :p

Probably on some kind of drugs, I wouldn't imagine someone being that stupid without being on something. :shake:

the weight ratio of a car to a train is the same as a car to a pop can

You know looking closer at the video, frame by frame, I do think the train clipped his leg.

My mom said when she was young her and a couple of her sisters where in the back of a pick up truck and it got hit by a train, I guess she is very lucky.

well shes 62 now, she was a small girl when it happened so they probably didn't have the Enquirer back then.

That has to be in France. That has to be THE GAYEST train horn I have ever heard. And I guarantee the cab smells like Fritos.
