    I`ve always wondered how anyone could be in so much of a hurry (or stupid) that they try to beat a train across the tracks.

    I love how, in the one that played around the 2:30 mark, after the guy makes it through the intersection completely okay, everyone slows down like "What the hell was that?"

    Then 3:13, the kid just stands back up and walks away. A little dazed, obviously, but still...

    And some of these, I wouldn`t exactly call "close-calls," since they actually did get hit. In those cases, I`d just call them tough people. Others, I`d call stupid people, since it was their own fault they were in that situation...

    the people on the train tracks are not lucky
    they are stupid.

    and as everyone knows:
    the protection of extreme ignorance is formidable.

    When I drove a cab, I used to pick up the train engineers and bring them from their destinations, back to their home. Every single one of them had horror stories of kids and adults that they`ve hit while on duty. It eats away at them. Makes it hard to sleep at night.

    people have no respect for trains... or themselves apparently. and the prius that barely gets off the tracks is luuuucky. if it was any other car it wouldn`t be nearly as close.

    How was that explosion in the store (looks like some sort of outlet mall or something) a close call? after the explosion everyone just laid on the floor, looks like they`re dead or if they`re not certainly everyone inside the store is. look at 8:35

    WTF is up with the morons playing chicken with the trains? I work in worker`s compensation insurance, and we get cases where train and truck drivers are traumatized and need months and even years of treatment because of idiots like the ones in the video.

    But the rally photographer 3:00 is awesome. Balls of steel, he has them!

    I agree with GRaddle... the rally car photographer who cheats death by inches and already has his camera back up to his face before the car leaves the screen is bad ass.

    The ones involving trains are particularly scary, especially the last bit where the train stopped just in time.

    2 points to this. 1) Why would these people jump in front of or lie down when a train or vehicle passes. 2) Isn`t it convenient how all these have been filmed, as if the people knew it would happen?

    Is it part of the dress code? Do you get one for free if you become a county sheriff? Why?
