Iraqi soldier shoots a protester in the head by HopeThatHalps in WatchPeopleDie

This is a genuine atrocity. Someone is passionate and angry, doesn't appear to be a threat otherwise, and the passing government soldier just decides to execute the person, then and there, and casually walks away, before running as he here's the people in the shadows start to cry out. This is such a horrid contrast to the West, where protesters throw rocks at whole rows of cops without fear of anything more than some pepper spray. Civility is a temporary state of affairs that we're lucky enough to enjoy.

That really sucks, it looks like the truck that kept driving on to the rest of it's life rear ended the victim, causing him to fish tail. This is a good lesson in how the cars behind you, which are hard to see and easy to neglect, can cause you to completely lose control of your own car by bumping into you, if even very slightly.

Outdoor playgrounds usually have wood chips over earth, which in addition to acting as a cushion, are low friction. Indoor playgrounds usually have a thin, stiff foam over a concrete floor, with less give and a high degree of friction. I can't find any safety guidelines on the 'net, but I know from observation that every indoor playground I've ever visited had tube-style spiral slides and extensive netting in order to make sure kids can't fall more than a couple feet. It never seemed to me that the padding over the concrete was sufficient for a seven foot fall, and accidents like this one demonstrate why.

It kind of looks like the family was trying to pass, because the car doesn't appear to really be skidding out of control. Before the era of dash cams, I saw a lot of pictures of mangled cars, but didn't undestand how it could happen. Videos like this one make it perfectly clear.

I feel that it's merciful when a whole family gets taken out at once, because nobody is alive to suffer losing the others. Their story simply comes to an abrupt end and they never see it coming.

It's a common problem for taller vehicles to slide up and over shorter cars. To fix this, auto makers are setting the bumber line of SUVs and trucks closer to the ground so that it will be closer to that of cars, but there still remains a lot of taller vehicles with high bumper lines. A crumple zone is of no use if the other car slides over the top of it.

Only a small fraction of crashes involve a roll over.

It's not the parent's fault. Those are clearly outdoor play ground sets erected indoors. You can't expect a parent to know why that's bad. Every indoor slide I've seen in the US either has netted sides, or is a completely enclosed tube. Since this apparently happened in China, where there are no safety standards of any sort, I doubt there is any legal remedy for the parents.

I suppose you could fault the parents for not having become safety experts out of necessity, in an unsafe country, but then again the conspiracy theorist in me says that when it comes to daughters, they're not especially wary about safety, if you catch my drift.

I think these twisty slides are dangerous for a few reasons, the potential to fall backwards and go right over the edge, as seen there, it's one big blind corner from top to bottom, and when kids climb up them, they aren't able to maintain good footing, and they have nothing to hold on to aside from the outer edge of the slide. A regular straight slide is a lot safer in all these respects.

WPD has made me fearful of velocity. In another video, a man is hit be a train, his body is flung at a rate of maybe fifty miles per hour across the platform, and he might already be dead from that blow alone, but he's still in one piece. Then he collides with some bolted down chairs and signs, and at that point limbs and guts go flying all over the place.

So I was doing 130mph in my car not long ago, because it seemed safe at the time, but I'm now I'm having post traumatic stress thinking about what would have happened if I lost control somehow. Lots of little pieces everywhere.

This would make for good training video for a few reasons.

  • shows that drowning is silent, can't yell while trying hard to breath.

  • trying to rescue a non swimmer in dangerous because they will pull you down with them.

  • see first hand the body language of people struggling, and observe how long it takes for a person to succumb.

  • the importance of swimming lessons, even if it's just to dogie paddle

I know student pilots have to watch videos of planes crashing in order to learn from it, so I'd hope life gaurds in training might see this, despite how tramatic it is to watch.

They were practically trying to paint that wall with his brains. At least the victim wasn't aware any of that happened.

Facebook you feel bad because Facebook is your reality. Everything else in life is fake. TV and movies are fake by definition, and the news is curated spectacle of bad shit happening to people you will never know. But Facebook is nothing but real people you know. In your mind you're a rock star, and the world's problems would be solved if Vladmit Putin called you up and asked you for your advice. You were riding high until you opened Facebook and realized that you are you, and you are not so great, relative to these other real people whom you actually know.

I'm surprised by how fast and hard people fall whem they shoot themselves in the head, as it's a lot faster than when a person faints.

I don't think they're really feeling the pain, because their eyes aren't wincing. I think their brain must be pumping out the maximum amount of endorphins it's capable of producing, combined with very low blood pressure, which is probably something like being drunk. Imagine being terrified, drunk and high all at the same time. The same thing is seen in animals that are being eaten alive by bigger predators.

In a way, this is worse than seeing deranged kids kill an old man with a hammer and gouge out his eyes, because a thrill kill is a thrill kill.. but this, I can't even wrap my head around this. The fact that something this accutely fucked up has happened on planet Earth in contemporary times should be the biggest news of the new of the day, and one of the most infuriating things is that there is apparently no way to get any back story, or really find out what happened. I visit this sub because to me, this is "real news", and yet we know almost nothing.

I dont really like to see this here because it's just torture, extreme torture. We assume he dies, I really hope he dies.. but not because he's supposedly a rapist. There's no telling if that's really true or not. I never realized dogs would be so happy to feast on the flesh of a living person.

Right, if there's one thing I've learned from WPD it's that being ripped in half in now way guarantees immediate death. Worse still, if you get spun around like this, it essentially ties off the wound, and you can live for hours after the fact, with no hope of living any longer than that. The funny thing is the vids I've seen of bifurcated people is that they aren't screaming in agony either, they're gazing around, confused and spaced out, which seems like a hell unto itself.

These are not rules, they are what is called assertions.

Maybe they're not so basic.

If you use Wikipedia for basic facts, it's fine. If you want controversial details, you have to search for that separately. Even on a good day, controversy is debatable, and a crowd sourced repository like Wikipedia will never land squarely in the middle of any debate. Anyone who expects more from it is naive anyway.

All of this raises questions that should be asked about reddit, as popular as it is; what is the value in limiting what we see to what people submit? Before Digg died, they were trying to mainline corperate media into the submission pool, and people saw that as losing independence from big money, but what independence exists in seeing content currated by a few power users? Is the fact that they do it for free proof of virtuous intentions, or objectivity? I think we all know the answer to that. Lately Google News has been better than any aggregation service, the lesser of various evils.

The armed services is nothing but lowly paid mercenaries. They haven't been in the business of protecting freedom for about forty years. Apply at McDonalds; you'll still have nightmares, but at least they will involve fried food rather than blood.

What does some spotty search results prove? You might be right, but your link doesn't prove your case.

Isn't reddit like this also, on a larger scale? And wasn't Digg before that? A few people with a copious amount of time on their hands, and no better way to spend it, come to own these aggregation sites.
