Pit, today on my way to rehearsal I saw a man die. I live in chicago, and I was passing an L (L is short for elevated train for you non-chicagoers. Its our take on the subway, except half of it is above the streets). There was a man leaning on the rail next to the tracks. I turned to look at the road for a second. When I looked back, the man had fallen onto the tracks and his body was smoking. Once again, for those that dont know, the L trains are completely electric. If you touch the rails, your pretty much done for.

I called the police ASAP, and they sent someone right away. I dont know if its been on the news yet or not, but it kinda disturbed me. I thought I should tell the pit

EDIT: Btw, the guy was white and dressed very "gangster" <_<. Kedzie park is about as south side as it gets, so I wouldnt be surprised if humpty dumpty was pushed

Which part. The end of a humans life? The smoking body? The fact that Chicago's mass transit system is called the "El"? That he called 911 immediately? That emergency response crews arrived rapidly? Which part is "cool"?

Probably the same people who thought it would be a "bright idea" to look for alternative energy sources for trains.

Its a perfectly good idea. The city saves tremendous amounts of money in fuel costs, you dont have to take trains out of service to refuel, its much more efficient (in terms of logistics) and it helps save the planet

How do you think the trains are powered? i used to cross tracks as such daily whilst living on Long Island. i don't see how a grown person tripped/collapsed/whatever they did to get electrecuted and burned with high voltage.

George Westinghouse, for all the inventing and science he did, was a huge idiot.

That's right, I said it.

EDIT: have two rails running opposite currents. Boom. problem solved.

This TS is the same person who posted not long ago about he knew he would die by suicide... I think he needs some serious help. Anyway. This thread is silly.

I believe he weighed in excess of 300 pounds. But I might be confusing him with Taft. Don't ask how I can mix up Taft and Westinghouse.
Actually in all fairness George was quite brilliant.

a human being died. (by a very unnatural cause) i'm glad you think the situation is silly, and hope people share the same opinion when you die.
