    To discuss the commercial I witnessed before the video: medicare is bullcrap.

    On to the video: that`s pretty sad... kind of stupid of him to go back there.

    Yes because going behind a bowling alley to unstick pins from a massive machine is a brilliant idea.

    Serious note though, shame :(

    Or to retell the story without the tear-jerking: "Erik Anderson, who knew nothing about the machinery and was in no way trained to repair it, instead of notifying the appropriate persons and closing the lane, decided to ignore `Staff Only` and `Danger No Entry` signs, stand in the middle of a dangerous machine with incredibly heavy counterweights, and release it. Predictably, he got squashed."

    that really sucks :\ if he was really as good as they said he was and people werent just praising the deceased even if he was a horrible person like people do, this is a big loss for that town. he really should have been smart enough to not try and fix things himself tho.

    @ groogle your display picture is very disturbing to me.... GOOD JOB!

    "Sad, at least he didn`t suffer..."

    They said he died "almost instantly". That, with the fact it was a bowling pin machine, makes it pretty unlikely that he didn`t suffer. It HAD to hurt!

    freddyferret - you`re wrong. if he died instantly, he couldn`t have suffered. A quick death isn`t painful, a slow death is.
