The idiot's guide to dummies and freaky accident

Not sure if these have been posted before...

<Crash Landing>
Quote:
Video shows car striking another vehicle in an intersection, sending the second car into a pedestrian.

...

Tegtmeyer, who was crossing the street in the same direction as the PT Cruiser and had just reached the curb on the opposite side, can be seen in the video breaking into a desperate run as the collided vehicles bear down on him. He could not react quickly enough, however, and the Subaru rolled atop of him, dragging him several feet across the intersection.

...

They also reported that Tegtmeyer miraculously escaped alive because the dent in the side of the Subaru caused by the crash created a hollow space that allowed the vehicle to roll over him without crushing him to death. Neither vehicle was carrying any passengers, and both drivers escaped with only minor injuries.
And for something completely different:

If I really was a complete idiot and I saw a book like The Complete Idiot's Guide to Palmistry, wouldn't I think it was a book about masturbation, or that The Complete Idiot's Guide to Curling was a book for hairdressers? What about The Complete Idiot's Guide to Soccer -- a how-to guide about how to smack your wife upside the head or put a woolly on her foot?

Re: The idiot's guide to dummies and freaky accident

the guy in the insection video did _actually_ die,.... for about 4minutes until his body kicked back into action, he had pretty severe injuries but still managed to pull through

The PT was the one running the red light
