"Fly 6CE Rear Ended at 55mph on bicycle. Impact at 16 sec"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYMKp71vW-I
"Airlifted to hospital crushed sines cavity broken leg and cracked C2 vertebra. ICU for 2 weeks"

You can see the driver has good road position at the start, but drifts right just in time to send the cyclist to the hospital. If you frame-by-frame, it looks like the driver was putting down her sun visor at that particular moment. The video is 15 minutes, but it's just listening to the [driver?] crying and walking around after the impact...

The shoulder looks rough, which is probably why the cyclist wasn't using it, but — personally — when there's a rumble strip between a big shoulder and the road, I ride in the shoulder no matter how bad it is...

"Justin Trudeau Responds To Blackface Criticism With New ‘Triggered?’ Campaign Slogan"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://pol...-criticism-with-new-1838258264
"OTTAWA—Following the release of images that reveal the head of government wore blackface and brownface on multiple occasions, Canadian head of government Justin Trudeau responded to criticism Thursday with a new campaign ad in which the slogan “Triggered?” appears on screen as he dabs his face with burnt cork. “Oh, boo-hoo, I’m sorry, do my policies bother you, SJWs?” Trudeau said in the 30-second TV spot, during which he vows not to be victimized by cancel culture and remarks that if this was how “those prissy, whiny snowflakes” were going to be, he didn’t even want to be their “goddamn prime minister.” “Wake up, soyboys! From Vancouver to Halifax, it’s time for this country to stop answering to the feminazis and uncuck itself. The so-called ‘tolerant’ left is just going to have to deal with the fact that by the time I’m through, there’s not going to be a single safe space left in all of Canada.” Within hours of the new slogan’s release, polls confirmed the prime minister’s approval rating had skyrocketed to 91%."

[Onion News in Brief]
http://www...erimental-sacrament-1838236275
"VATICAN CITY—Saying that he wouldn’t recommend such an invasive course of action unless the situation was dire, Pope Francis told a sinner Thursday that a risky experimental sacrament was the only thing capable of saving him. “At such an advanced stage and with sins this mortal, I’d put the odds of saving your soul at 15%—and that’s if this new sacrament even works, which is far from guaranteed as it hasn’t been fully tested on humans yet,” said the Pope, adding that in pontifical trials on rhesus monkeys, only 30% saw a moderate increase in piety and 9% were instantly damned to Hell. “Had you confessed your sins earlier and begun a strong course of reconciliation, we might have nipped this thing in the bud—but as it stands right now, this long-shot sacrament is the best chance you’ve got.” At press time, the sinner was filling out paperwork—should the sacrament fail—to donate his soul for dissection and study."

Shamelessly pulling hair out of things and still eating them is a solo-eating activity, not really a group thing ;D

"EVANSVILLE, IN—Reporting that the suspected arsonist has thus far claimed the lives of 23 sinners whose wretched souls will no longer harbor evil, law enforcement officials announced Thursday that they are still seeking the individual responsible for cleansing more than 40 buildings in the city’s business district with glorious, purifying flame. “At approximately 2 a.m., St. Augustine’s Children’s Hospital was enrobed in sheets of crimson flame, and lo! At long last, unquenchable light and heat have rid the area of 6th Street between Walnut and Court of mankind’s vile and loathsome stain,” said police chief William Bolin in a press conference, encouraging all who witnessed the three city blocks reduced to ash, all those who beheld the smoldering and blasted ember-scape where sin can no longer find succor in its striving to corrupt Man, and all those whose eyes encompassed the landscape free of Downtown Evansville and its horrid plague of mortal weakness, to contact the authorities immediately. “This individual is still at large, and we implore all Evansville residents to be alert and notify us if you see the One through whom the Almighty Phoenix has at long last acted—praised be the day, this blessed day, our long-awaited day of conflagration, of salvation, of brilliant baptism—o, the brilliant fire! The fire that poured forth, its cleansing flames coruscating and dancing for all to see! Yes! Yes! Yes! Suffer no more the Unburnt to walk the scorched Earth! Rejoice! Animabus purgatis igne!

Etc, ;)

That reminds me of a similar scene from "The Net" TV series (1998-1999). The Angela Bennett character was having a conversation with a romantic interest, and the interest says something like, "What is the Internet? Is it a cesspool, a paradise...?" And Angela is like, "Oh I think it's all of that and more [and maybe something about how it's all user-created, like a reflection?]". I haven't been able to look up the direct quotation because it wasn't a very popular show. In a quick Google, it looks like it's online via Sony:

I took a side tour from The Purge into The Net. That quotation that I was looking for was in episode 5:
[Kyle]: "The Internet is a pivotal issue. Is it freedom of speech, a world without borders, a place to trade technology, meet new people, fall in love, or is it a wasteland?"
[Angela]: "Oh, I think it's all those things."
[Kyle]: "Like college!"

Incidentally, the plot of the episode is that someone has child pr0n placed on his computer remotely and has to fight the legal fallout with Angela's help. That idea (remotely planting incriminating evidence) was later used or referenced on Law&Order:SVU a few times..

http://www.liveleak.com/view?t=sX9ZU_1569871669

also has this good text
"
Several eyewitnesses managed to shoot a fox throwing at the airport on video, after which the cheat disappeared, apparently finding a way out of a place crowded with terrible bipeds.
"

i guess a translation product, but not sure why 1st & 3rd paragraphs aren't so weird though

Lulz... that's weird text :D
People seemed okay getting super close to that fox for video opportunities... which I guess isn't a terrible idea since foxes run instead of defensively attack?

I got this from imdb :(
Submission declined. "Reason: Unable to verify."
They said I can resubmit if I can provide proof, so hopefully that article is enough.

Just finished season 1 of the Purge. It got a little too preachy at the end, the dialogue and writing shows at the seams a lot, and they made Joe's politics a little too generic (racism, sexism, etc. — none of it necessary; without adding those obvious bad-guy traits, they could have kept it as him being a blue-collar type who was fed up with being trodden underfoot, similar to the "God Bless America" (2011) guy), but it still had some fun moments.. like Miguel shooting after the sirens or the EU opening up talks for their own purge :p
Also a plus that I didn't want Rick to die, despite his flaws. He was making bad decisions, but he wanted to do right by Jenna. It's nice when horror manages to get you to like a difficult character :)

"“For the ninth and final time, this is not a cult but a programmatic intramental polysymbolic thought-system for enhancing mental paravirility and omnispiritual psychowellness as clearly stated in Protocol 117,” said Elder Healer Sister-Brother Camilla 82 Eridani, adding that this is the exact sort of transgram-sodden thought violation from which all must refrain, as that is the type of word used by those that seek to sow division amongst us. “Ask anyone in any of these tents of purest crystal-gossamer and they’ll tell you the same truths. His Holiness, Bruce Sagittarius-A—praise be to him—has repeatedly told us this, yet your ears are nailed shut to the truthings of our stellar Father-Brother. Why is this? Why?” True believers have further decreed that offending parties shall be brought before the Angular Councillors of Purest Gold, who will hear about the evil incongruence and render swift correction."

i don't really remember the Purge characters well enough to remember if who i wanted to die did so :p

although i do want to know if that woman got her promotion at work... and how does it affect her co-worker relationships

She may have been let off the hook due to the CEO and his #1 (Amanda) being purged on the same day :D
Plus, they showed that misandrist-feminist kill squad arriving at the party as Amanda was leaving, so the rest of that party (all upper management from the company) were about to be killed or “PIG”-branded... so that company may have been finished.. she’d be job-hunting pretty soon ;D

was it the TV show or one of the movies where a kid (or some family member) killed a parent (or some other family member(s)) right in the home?
...my memory is not good :p

anyway, that would make the next night's dinner awkward too (plus doing the corpse clean-up)

not sure if season 2 is going to touch on that kind of stuff or not... starts Oct 15

"a kid (or some family member) killed a parent (or some other family member(s)) right in the home?"

I admit to not remembering much of "Anarchy" (2014) and "Election Year" (2016).. so if it happened in one of those, I may not remember.. but that sounds like the first Purge movie (the 2013 one, as opposed to 2018's "The First Purge"). It was the daughter's BF who tried to kill the father pretty near the beginning. The father reacts quickly and shoots the BF.

But yeah :D Killing family members would be a nightmare. Like if a 14-year-old purged a parent and then tried to keep living there until 18 or college. Maybe this new season will say that kids who purged family members ended up on the streets? :D

Nice negligence ;D

For the last one, though... that soldier kept putting his finger on the trigger so I thought something would go bad for him related to that, but it looks like they took a mortar round and got in a firefight at the end.. which kind of breaks up the theme of the other videos?

I'll have to investigate! :D

Oh, my Purge TV additions were all declined. Even with the source citing the producer of the show confirming that the voice was in fact Dermot Mulroney, they said, "Unable to verify." Not sure what their threshold for evidence is, considering that years ago I added Affif Ben Badra (a super obscure actor) to a Highlander credit without a single piece of proof, and they approved it. Looks like the next step is to complain in their forums. :p

no no, you don't need to look for it :p

my memory is a main character (or characters) had made a pitstop at a home for some reason (or perhaps planned to wait out the night there) then an angry teenage-ish child shot a mother or father or something... does that spark anything? maybe it's a memory from my childhood :p

anyway, no need to hunt down!

"A Taco Bell customer in Sandy received a seven-year prison sentence for slashing the throat of a stranger who objected to her invective-laced rant about the restaurant’s service – all of which transpired as her two young children and boyfriend waited in their car, authorities said."

not particularly graphic video of slashing:
http://www.liveleak.com/view?t=CI5ZU_1570289627


another account of incident:
"
Sandy Police Chief Ernie Roberts previously told The Post that the incident allegedly started over a complaint about service. Mason was waiting on an order when she grew impatient and reportedly began cursing at the staff.

Other customers, one man and one woman, asked her to not curse and commented that she was being rude to the people working behind the counter. She then exited the establishment, removed a blond wig she'd been wearing, returned with a knife and stabbed the man who'd talked to her in the neck, Roberts said. She and Phillip Michael Thomas, 31, her accomplice, then fled.
"

Not sure I'd outright tell someone not to mistreat workers like that if it was just verbal... there's no deescalation in a situation like that. I think I'm more likely to commiserate with the workers afterwards and tip them heavily ;p

Oh! That sounds more like "Purge: Anarchy"... A sister kills a sister. I barely remember that movie. I mostly just remember that the main character had something going on with his neck for most of the movie ;)

..
I'm hoping the source for this turns up because sound would make it a lot more interesting..

A Florida man won’t face charges for fatally shooting his Norwegian son-in-law who jumped out and scared him during a surprise birthday visit, authorities said.

Christopher Bergan, 37, had just flown in from Norway Tuesday night to surprise Richard Dennis for his 62nd birthday when authorities said poor timing and circumstance led to a “horrible accident” at Dennis’ Gulf Breeze home.

“You can’t really say anything against Mr. Dennis for doing what he did. I think it was just a horrible accident that should never have happened,” Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson said at a press conference Thursday.

Roughly two hours before Bergan appeared at the home, Johnson said, Dennis had been in a verbal altercation with another relative who had been banging on his front door. That relative eventually left, only to be replaced by Bergan who delivered “the same type of banging,” this time on Dennis’ back door around 11:30 p.m., Johnson said.

Dennis, armed with a gun, opened the door and was surprised by Bergan who jumped out at him while making a noise. He was immediately shot in his chest and died instantly. Bergan had previously lived in Florida before moving back to Norway with his wife, who is Dennis’ daughter, Johnson said.

The incident came a little more than a month after an Ohio mother shot her 18-year-old daughter in the arm after the teen returned home early from college to surprise her. That mother was also not charged in the incident, which left her daughter briefly hospitalized.

"possible road rage instead of drunkenness... seems like she had already hit the car once prior to video"

Looks like it, yeah (road rage). Reddit comments point it to Aurora, CO, which is a kind of wacky area (known for James Holmes, among other things).

The out-of-breath narrator gives it a comical hype. "Look. At. What. She. Just. Did. to my **car**! [panting]" — Oh no! Not your *car*?? ;p
The narrator took some big risks there, stepping fully behind the vehicle to grab the plates and then it sounds like she's touching the car as it's pulling away... Worth it for the video evidence :D .. Can't wait for the follow-up where the road rager is charged ;D

Def funny that the [son?] seemed to know right away that the [dad?] was full of shit with that excuse XD .. "[You] can't drive for two minutes?" XD ... Weird that the son took off his seat belt, though... Maybe he was way-too-preemptively getting ready to switch drivers?

And that Rick&Morty shirt on a giant fat man seems about correct for their ultra-fans ;D

"Pulp Fiction inspired robbery (possibly)"

Very cool, actually. Like, they wore masks and gloves and got in and out quickly — not like those losers who run into Apple stores and hang out for a while with their faces fully visible ;D
