Warning for Runners!!

This is why you don't wear your headphones while you run.

Also why you don't run on railroad tracks, you hobo.

Damn right!

I was stuck behind a train that hit someone last Friday (the MARC Express to Martinsburg took someone out in Rockville, I was marooned at Silver Spring for 3 hours.)

As I was there I was talking to one of the trainmen and he said that the top three causes of people getting hit by trains are:
1.) Suicide

2.) Deaf

3.) Headphones on and not paying attention.

Not only to you ruin your day, you ruin the engineer's and the several thousand people who are stuck while they carry you off or hose off your remains from the tracks. (FYI, the Rockville thing involved a fire hose cleanup.)
