I'm busy but ... boot in the head guy is looking for cash

I have to make time for this email:

subject: I know you're busy as all get out but...

Remember the guy who got kicked in the head by the train conductor? He's baaaack!

http://toronto.ctvnews.ca/canadian-hopes-kick-in-the-head-will-boost-his-bottom-line-1.1786522

He's Canadian (eesh!) and he's hoping to make a few bucks off the video.

I'm including the link to CTV News Toronto rather than the Star - no one can read their articles if they're over the limit.

I can't even make a few bucks from this blog ... then again, I could but I'm not greedy. Yet.

Well, at least he isn't suing the conductor.

But still: what an idiot.

Fantastic. Now every idiot wanting to make a little cash will be standing too close to the tracks waiting for their boot to the head.

April said...

@Squiggles. The conductor should be fired and/or sued . . . by every person with a brain for not kicking the brainless hard enough!

I think that conductor saved his life. Two very hard metal objects are sticking out right level to his head: http://imgur.com/gallery/xEqaUQA

I dont see what the problem is, his video went viral, you tube pays based on views. I cant wait for my golden lawsuit, maybe get hit by a mercedes, or burn my foot by dropping a hot coffe and sue for no handles on take away cups. who knows.

Yes. It's been discussed at great length on reddit that the engineer did Jarod a favor and saved his life.

0.002 cents per view. Average on Youtube.

Final Destination moment averted. That man taking a picture should be charged with trespassing anyways.

Bicky if you need to read more articles from the Star, Sun or wherever a payeall is, simply clear the cookie and reload the site. Then Presto! (HAH!), you can start all over again from zero.

@George, I usually hit the escape key before everything fully loads. Works most of the time. Thanks for the tip!
