Elaborate suicide or Darwinism at work???
...I have no idea how to react to that. So, they had sex on a train track, and despite the driver's shouts to get off the track, they continued, and then they get killed? I only have one question: WHY? That makes no sense whatsoever.
Suicide with pleasure. No different than two lovebirds holding hands while "cliff jumping"
What a poor choice of location for copulation.
How fast was this train going for the driver to be able to shout at them?
If he was able to shout at them, why didn't he just stop?
"Come on dude I'm not even playin' with you!"
*2miles an hour.* RUN IM GONNA HIT YOU IN ABOUT HALF AN HOUR. .... RUN....
SOunds like suicide.
I mean, if he can shout at them, then the train's gotta be moving pretty slow. So if it's a small train, driver could have stopped, long train, not so easy, but still.
I guess they took the phrase, "ridin the train" the wrong way....
Don't you hate it when someone a mile away starts shouting at you?
"One more second baby, im almost there..."
Last minute gene pool cleansing at work.
And what did he shout?
Driver: Hey, can I join in?
Shagging man: Ew, devil's threesome, no way!
Shagging woman: No way, you'll be all oily and dirty!
Driver: Aw, come on! No pun intended.
Shagging couple: NO!
*continues for half an hour until impact*
Seriously, trains stop fucking slow. You could see someone coming a mile away and not stop in time. It's not even a joke. The stopping distance for a standard freight train is over a mile, and that's not even something going high-speed. A light rail train like a subway train, even though it's smaller and lighter, still needs about the length of two football fields to stop from the second the engineer sees a problem. When it comes down to it, by the time the driver of a train ever sees something wrong, it's ALWAYS too late to stop. The only thing an engineer can do is hit the brakes, scream at the person in the tracks, and hope they aren't stupid or suicidal and get out of the way.
See above: it was a goods train, a freight train. Just because you see them a mile away and start shouting or blowing the horn to get out of the way, it doesn't mean you have time to stop.
As far as this incident goes, I'd say it's definitely a suicide. Idiots.
EDIT: goofed distance for light rail, they need two, not one
Well I learnt something about trains today. Thankyou good sir.
To quote from Grandma's Boy...
Ooookkkaaaay... lovers having sex on the train tracks, ignores the shouts to get off the tracks, then they get themselves run over by the train and die. What the hell is the world coming to?
Pff! That's nothing. Wikipedia has a whole list full of this shit.
Also, Frank Levick, a footballer for Sheffield United died in a rather gruesome way in 1908:
