AlpineValleyGirl said: oh god, how could I forget this time . . . back in the 80's we went to see Alice at the UIC Pavillion in chicago. we took the train and half way there, the train stopped. dammit, the show starts in about a half hour, we better not be late, etc. time's ticking away. dammit, there better be a damn good reason we're sitting waiting . . .
finally, the train starts up again. we get to the station and there's cops and paramedics and tv trucks all over. and a loooong bloody stain in the snow between the tracks and a shredded t-shirt wrapped around the third rail. we look at each other, making the ew face, hurrying up the ramp to get to the show.
we get up to the top of the ramp and the DEAD BODY IS SITTING UP IN THE STATION!!!::surprise
wow beats the time i saw a car get crushed by an amtrack
