Wait, a moving truck, at 3am....How fast was the truck moving? Plus since when is a restaurant open that late? Unless it is serving a bubbly-brew.

True I guess, but what a price to pay.
What a needless loss to his family and friends.
Stupid, as you wrote, but tragic as well.

Darwin would be proud...

Thinning the herd of those too dumb and weak to continue on. Our species should be happy that his genes won't be passed on.

A lot of people on this board get their kicks by gloating over other people who get killed. They think it's funny, and they can do it because it's anonymous, which is how cowards like it.
