Bad luck all round.

An amusing story caught my attention, from the English press, although it may not be amusing to some.

A woman was so upset by the fact that her car refused, once again, to start, that she began hitting the engine with a hammer. This caused the car to roll forward slightly which, in its turn, caused the engine to turn over. To stop herself from losing her balance, the woman grabbed hold of a cable as the car rolled towards her. The cable was attached to the accelerator. The car engine fired and the vehicle ran her over.

The car survived.

The eternal battle of the industrial age! Man vs. Machine and the machines are winning. Fortunately the machines are culling the more moronic of our species which should strengthen the gene pool. There is hope for us yet!

That poor poor car.
Actually I dont believe that woman was a woman.
Women don't fix cars...
Although, I am an expert with jumper cables by now, I always leave my lights on and end up with a flat battery.
....and no...I am not blonde.
