Someone Really Deserves Retraining

A Kalamazoo, Michigan pedestrian was struck by a train while walking on the tracks and wearing headphones. Sadly, the person was not killed, so there is chance he/she may later reproduce.

A pedestrian wearing headphones was struck by a train while walking on tracks near Cork Street and South Burdick Street, police said.

The train was moving slowly and the person was injured, but in stable condition at a Kalamazoo hospital.

The train also was going south and the engineers, upon seeing the pedestrian, blew extra whistles and attempted to stop the train. They could not stop in time, however, and struck the pedestrian at a slow speed.

Michigan Furher Governor Gretchen Whitmer has now banned both headphones and freight trains.

  1. I clicked on the link and got blocked by a message that told me to disable my ad blocker. So, I did what every red-blooded American would do: I turned off Javascript, refreshed the link, and read the article.

    That being said,

    “The train in Spain hits mainly on the brain…”

    A pity Darwin lost on this round.

      1. Through various charitable foundations, trusts, and so forth – look, it’s all a bit technical, but the important thing is it happened.

        Seriously, I have no idea why it was linked, but I am humbled for the mention.

          BS. You paid CBD off in powdered sugar and not maple syrup. Of course , powdered sugar on waffles/pancakes makes you a heathen, but we won’t get into that.
