It’s my birthday!! That’s right I am now 28 years old. Though I may pretend I’m 27 till I’m 29 – I prefer odd numbers ; p When I woke this morning Glenn surprised me with a cake he’d baked! And he really thought about it *giggle*. He presented me with a lemon yoghurt cake (yep he made it from scratch! Impressive or what!) and he’d iced it with store brought almond icing as he knows I love almond flavoring. The result is one heck of an intense cake experience and there’s no way I’m gonna be able to scoff this one *hee*. I wanted to post a pic but he’s a perfectionist and doesn’t want anyone to see his ‘retarded’ cake as he called it. C’mon it’s only a little lopsided ; p
And to celebrate here is the Darwin Award for the month. I picked it specially for
Sian who frequently chants ‘train’ when idiots do this in front or behind her *grin*
A one track mind
(Confirmed true by
(16 July 2008,
) Gerhard, 68, was queued at a traffic light in his Porsche Cayenne SUV. Before one reaches the light, there is a railroad crossing, and Gerhard had not let the queue progress forward far enough before he drove onto the tracks. As you might imagine, given Murphy’s Law, a train was coming. Italy
The safety bars came down, leaving the Porsche trapped on the rails. According to witnesses, it took the driver awhile to realize he was stuck. Finally he jumped from the car and started to run–straight toward the oncoming train, waving his arms in an attempt to save his expensive SUV!
The attempt was partly successful. The car received less damage than its owner, who landed 30 meters away. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.
The moral of the story? Momentum always wins.
