Death By Pedestrianism

Tuesday, January 15, 2008
Yeah, so it's snowing and blowing like crazy out there and visibility is about half a block.

So how many neurons and synapses need to fire to figure out that it would be unwise to walk in the middle of the driving lane????

Even with the sidewalk right there??

Or better yet, lets wander into traffic while txting our friends on how bad the weather is, and have to be yanked out of the way at the last minute by a friend, so that some shmucks slow moving, yet sliding on sheer ice towards me van won't hit me.

That whole natural selection thing is underrated.
The ones who don't think or take care, bump, off they go to their eternal reward.


  1. Funny you should bring this up, because on the way home for lunch a young feller came running towards 28th street from Prime Minister's park, leaped over the snowbank at the side of the road and landed immediately next to my van, which was in motion. He didn't even look at me, just kept going down the street. I seem to recall he was not wearing a jacket, either.

  2. if you want to find out what is happening in the Newman Household check
    out the dogster website at

    you can follow the link there to Picadilly as well as Veronica and Picadilly
    nice day to have an inside job and a 4x4

  3. If Darwinian selection worked then why are there so many fools still in existence?


  4. I would have to agree with Toni. I often ponder that very thought in my job on a daily basis. In fact I would tend to go with, the stupider one is, the more than nine lives they have!!

  5. It probably doesn't work because God is gracious, and because we've had to print warnings on the side of coffee cups saying that the contents may burn.

    Course, it doesn't always end up that way:



I'm moderating all the comments these days.
