For instance, in second grade, Nelson invented a new way
of crossing the street: when arriving at a busy
thoroughfare, he would dramatically turn his back on traffic
and step with theatrical nonchalance off the sidewalk.
Drivers, frightened, would slam on their brakes.


yes, exactly. but i'm not in second grade; i'm in my
thirties. i've had enough maneuvers like this backfire on me
that i've realized i cannot even trust people to slam on
their brakes -- people as a whole, mind you, i can trust
individuals significantly more. like the scene from men in
back -- "a person is smart. people are stupid"

i already try to run people over walking normally on the
sidewalk, so the crosswalk is definitely not going to save

oh, remember those "demotivation" brand posters?

"none of us is as dumb as all of us"

sir, it is no joke. i've run experiments. i'm like: the
train leaves in ten minutes; with perfect timing i could be
there in three. so, shit, i wonder if anyone will actually
see me waiting, on the sidewalk, in front of a crosswalk,
clearly looking to cross. the answer is: no, not really.
traffic is fairly heavy; the train station is at the center
of town. everyone is trying to get to work. i could stand
there all fucking day and everyone would not only not stop
-- but see me, and accelerate: like, shit, a pedestrian!
this will delay me ten second! my life is in danger! floor
it! i hope you run over pedestrians for a more noble goal,
like racial profiling or entertainment
