Oncoming locomotive encourages slow-moving gentleman to pick up the pace

disobedient

Needs more training.


#3

Haha he’s trolling the train conductor.
The fists in the air was him saying, “Ha! Bet I made you sh** your pants, f***er!”


#4

He’s cursing the train for being two seconds early that morning.


#5

That’s no Dawkins


#6

Another turbulent moment in train-human relations.


#7

It looks like this guy really doesn’t understand that the train CAN’T stop for him in time. Steel wheels on steel rail do not generate enough traction. His bullheaded ignorance almost resulted in tragedy.


#8

Him: “I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass!”

It: “I am 500 tons of steel rolling on steel rails. Outta my way, or you’re gonna be a red splotch!”


#9

The thing about science is that it works whether you believe it will or not.


#10

Does a removal of an instance of bullheaded ignorance from the gene pool count as tragedy?


#11

Looks like he changed his mind about suicide by train.


#12

That guy almost won the fight, if only he’d hung in there, like for another second or two.


#13

Chicken. The two set up steps take him as far to the left as possible for a single step out to work and he has his timing down.

Does he actually slap the front of the train!?


#14

Good eye! He even shifts his weight to his left leg in preparation.


#15

Those last two little steps, the second one is him shifting his weight without advancing his foot, which is the first thing to move when he springs out of the way.

I can’t really tell if he pokes the front of the train or not but you would want to do something showy anyway and probably from the angle most people see it from it looks as if he is slapping or poking the front of the train.

Dat street cred tho’.


#16

what a magical thing science is!


#17

Oblig “Christ what an asshole.” And I don’t mean the train.


#18

Bearded gentleman obviously has a great deal of face and the uppity train failed to pay appropriate deference … :smirk:


#19

Perhaps he had a loco motive?


#20

That really does look like a slap, a step to the right, and his hand raised in triumph. It’s a dare, maybe? A “trick”?
