Default 2013 Darwin Award Nominations

Well, I'm going to put my nomination out there. This girl's parents:

Name:  girl.jpg

She ran back and forth across the tracks in front of this fast moving 10 mph train several times. She eventually did run off one the train got a little closer to the crossing. Seen here was one of the last times she ran back and forth across the tracks. She only looked to be about 7-8 years old to me, so I place all of the blame on the parents.

Anyways, have any of you guys taken any pics like this one featuring stupid people? I ask because they may have been like this one: not good enough for RP.

Maybe she's been doing it all her life and she's got the timing down perfect?

I snagged one in Chicago of two idiot railfans (and they were clearly serious railfans, as they each had hi-end cameras and tripods) standing on the second track down by Lumber St photographing an NS oil train. This was towards the tail end of rush hour when METRA are actively using that second track. Not that such behavior would ever be ok, but that they had picked literally the worst possible moment to do it for their own safety.

It's not on this computer for the public shaming, unfortunately.

That actually wouldn't surprise me in this area. There's a lot of weird people in that area of the city. There was a couple of girls who thought we worked for the government because we were sitting there watching trains. We told them it was true and they walked off.

Get them on here! We need to shame such idiots, who as railfans make it worse for the rest of us.
