Lightning is not exactly a strange way. Neither is texting. Which also explains the high numbers. The rest of them... well, I'll be making sure no murderous vending machines follow me on more quiet roads. I mean, sure, I've cursed and punched a few of them in my life, I've heard they're now getting smart, but not *that* smart, alright?

No, I'm pretty sure they're alive. A few weeks back I wanted Mars bar even though I wasn't hungry. I said it but quietly and guess what - I didn't get any.

Also, I've long suspected ATMs have otherwise homeless people locked inside them. That's why they can't upgrade them - those folks are die hard Windows XP users. Perchance, do you have any statistics on that?

 

And because nobody ever reads Random Stuff Thread, I'm copying the following important information here:

"Accidents caused by reckless texting and not paying proper attention to operation of vehicles, machinery and appliances kill 5,999 people a year. The remaining one might be a homicidal carrier wave that has somehow achieved capability of reasoning, probably thanks to smartphones."

Is it fair to put texting in here. It's not like anyone directly dies from texting, one could die by being distracted by texting.

 

I mean if someone was busy texting & a hippo came at them & killed them, which would get the point?

Actually when you count the dabeetus they get from the vending machine, that figure is much higher.

A lightning bolt scared a hippo, which knocked a vending machine over, killing my cousin, while he was shopping on Black Friday.

 

True story ...

That sounds like an std.

 

I think you meant diabetes.
