Think of it as evolution in action

On the way home from wendyg's, I was stopped at a level crossing. It was a long wait, as it was a two train set of lights. A queue of pedestrians built up on either side of the crossing.

Someone was a little impatient, and decided to jump over the barriers and run across the railway lines. He was just across when a train shot past - he must have missed it by a handful of seconds.

A lucky escape for a reckless fool.

But I'm glad I didn't see what I nearly did.
