This (not a joke) was posted on my site (before MT broke) by my friend ProfessorEric:
Ok, sorry to drop a heavy one on you but i need to get this out there… i was just driving on the PCH running an errand and out of the blue a car swerves and loses control and flies over the guardrail, over the oncoming traffic, and over the side of the PCH toward the ocean. I have never seen anything like that. i have seen accidents after the fact, i have even seen people dangling upside-down in their vehicle under the 10 freeway. but i have never seen anything so horrible happen right in front of me. We all slowed down for a moment trying to figure out what we as random motorists could do, and a few people quickly pulled over and took out their cell phones, and the rest of us just kept going. I feel horrible. I wish i had stopped and checked to see if the people in that car were ok, but i was already far past them when i came back to my senses. i am so fucked in the head right now. all i have to say is tell everyone close to you how much you care about them. we never know when we will be snatched away. I am not a religious person in any way, but i prayed to something, to everything, that these people somehow survived. ok. enough venting. thank you all for reading our little web page of nonsense. glad to somehow be a little part of your lives. -professoreric
Incidentally, if anyone can help me with my broken MT problem, this post accidentally got posted twice to the site and when I was deleting one of the posts, something happened during the rebuild and we are no longer able to log in.
Eeek all around.
