Darwin Award Candidate

Very foggy morning on the drive to work, visibility extremely limited. On one of the busiest 4-lane roads in town, Hall of Fame Ave., a cement mixer was parked, lights flashing, blocking the right lane. Between the highly visible (or at least as visible as it could be in the fog) cement mixer and oncoming traffic was a man wearing dark clothing and no reflective gear trying to direct traffic around the cement mixer.

DUDE! You're trying to protect a CEMENT MIXER with your squishy, nearly invisible body? This is a bad, bad decision.

As Germans would say, "Bist du Lebensmüde?" ("Are you tired of living?")

Like dude, let the truck get hit. It'll handle it better than you and it's covered by insurance...you're not.

Our road guys use equipment all the time to 'hide behind'....aka park a 3 ton truck up stream and then work behind it, so if some driver isn't paying attention the truck gets smacked, not them. (and they also get to mock the idiot that 'didn't see' and hit a 3 ton truck with massively bright flashing lights.)

This guy was stupid crazy. No accidents reported that morning though, so evidently he didn't die.
