    This morning, two trains crashed cause one didn't heed a stop light. About 20 people were killed in the crash and a bunch of others were severely injured [​IMG]

    God damn, I woke up, first thing I hear is this [​IMG] Great.

    Yeah, the news said 10 or 11 but Mail.com says the NMBS guys said 20. I don't know which one to believe anymore D:

    Also, is there a display bug in Chrome or did your avatar just become static?

    Hmm, strange, maybe it's cause I'm browsing incognito [​IMG]

    EDIT: Wait, while the page is loading it's moving, but the moment the loading stops, the avatar stops too...

    Why wouldn't the train conductor stop at the light? It sometimes amazes me how people can be so absorbed in something, that they don't even heed what should be common sense.

    Just watched the news, apparently the search for bodies has been (temporarily) put to a halt. The unofficial total bodycount is now over 18. [​IMG]

    Wow. That sucks.

    All because he didn't pay attention to the stop light.

    Saw this on the news earlier. Snow is meant to be pretty bad over there, they were saying that could have reduced visibility, or caused a problem with the brakes. [​IMG]
