yesterday, a woman in taiwan ran thru a railroad crossing while the guard arms were coming down. when she reached the other side, the arms were already down. then she tried to turn back, and was missed , according to the newspaper this morning, by only "two steps".
what she did was stupid (a big problem in taiwan is the urge to gamble with one's life, thinking "it won't happen to me, and if it does, oh well...fate). but what was worse was the newspaper bringing up the idea that the train "might have been going too fast"!
trains have a schedual to keep! whatever time they lose they have to make up somewhere else, otherwise every train behind them will be late, or worse there will be a rear-end collision! should 10,000 people be held up or worse, endangered, for one stupid bitch?
this is another example of the kind of SELFISH, STUPID, BACKWARDS THINKING that permeates taiwan.
mr. train engineer, next time do us all a favor: run over the bitch! consider it a form of passive eugenics- you're stupid, you get run over and don't get to reproduce.
anybody who thinks a train with 300 passengers should wait for her deserves no better.
