That has got to be a classic case of "Terminal Stupidity." Someone should have advised him to just be content with wearing a lampshade.

I know Ron. Isn't that simply amazing?! If there was ever a point, or example to help combat drunkenness stupidity, this is the one. S22

Hell, even the average drunk should have known better. S13

And just when I was wondering where the Darwin Award folks were hiding, there is this recipient coming forward. Spiteful

Woman decapitated during sex by passing train

Quote:A woman has died after a passing train decapitated her while having sex on a railway line.

The woman, who was on top, is believed to have looked up after hearing the train approaching.

She was killed in Ulan-Ude, Siberia, when the accident happened.

According to Russian news agency Pravda the woman and her partner were both homeless and were drunk at the time of the accident.
In recent times there have been a number of incidents near the tracks. A man’s legs were cut off and his body was found four days later.

Earlier this week a mother was hit along with her two young children, aged one and two. The younger one died at the scene while the mother and two-year-old are in a critical condition.

Looks like Darwin is alive and well in Russia anyway, aye? S13

Here is a guy who deserves the Darwin Award for slapping a horse in the rear:

Not certain how the movie studios managed to do that, but obviously some CGI(Computer-generated imagery) was worked in.  

Oh, I can see it now.  The fellow and the horse were never together.  They were stitched in.  Look at how he supposedly hits the horse on the other side of its rear.  And the horse doesn't react at all by jumping forward and throwing the rider off stride.  And in the shot there was only one leg used to do the kicking.  I've never seen a horse do something like that before.  I've always seen them rear back and use both legs, for balance. Naturally that would have caused the rider a lot of problems, but he just sits there as if nothing ever happened.  

Then the movie folks replaced a real person with a dummy, and used some powerful punching machine that whacked him into the middle of next week.  I'll bet your brother can tell you exactly how it was done, and made to look so real.  

I wonder which movie that comes from?

I've seen horses kick with one foot. They are extremely strong--at least, compared to humans--so they do not need to shift their weight or rear back or anything. Just give a little twitch, and it has the blast of a sledgehammer! The rider well might not have been aware that anything happened, until his attention was called to it. Donkeys are more likely to kick with both rear feet. In general, they are smaller than horses, and need to double up to deliver the desired wallop.

I was riding bareback with some friends a number of years ago. This when I was living in eastern Washington, north of Spokane. I had one of their small children riding in front of me. As we started up a rather steep hill, I discovered my legs were not quite strong enough to keep me from slowly sliding off the back end of the horse. Realizing what was about to happen, I stopped hanging on to the kid, lest I drag him with me. When I reached a certain point, the horse gave a little buck, and I wound up on the ground behind the horse. Everyone laughed, of course. Fortunately it was snowy, and I was wearing a thick coat, so it did not hurt. The horse also gave a little kick--with one foot. But it missed me because I had immediately rolled over to the left. The child who was riding the horse was not bucked off. He wasn't even jostled by the buck or the kick. In fact, he thought it was great fun, and wanted me to do it again. Thereafter I walked beside the horse, loosely holding the rope lead, and careful to avoid the horse stepping on my feet on the narrow path.

That could be entirely digitized. Zero VFX is the only company I see on the credits.

If it was me, I would blue screen the stunt man getting kicked and digitally add motion to it. The car shake and dent is easy. The horse's leg was drawn in frame-by-frame. The whole thing was composited together. In the old days, that would take many a, b, and c rolls with holdback kodalith film rolls, but in today's world, the hardest thing was the blue-screen of the stunt double (or Kevin James, it may not be that hard). The compilation could be done in one sitting. The artist who drew the leg just needed a silhouette and a few key positions, but getting the anatomical movement correct was well done. The sound was easy.

Good SFX.

Its obviously from a movie somewhere. Perhaps it was edited out over time, something. But its not real. If someone can produce a horse that can kick one legged like that, he's make a fantastic place kicker. S13

John, I have just told you, I have seen a horse kick one-legged. I have seen them do it often enough that I can say that is the most common way that horses kick! Frankly, I have never seen a horse kick two-legged, except maybe when they are in a bucking frenzy while being broken. Horses are big animals, and prefer to conserve their center of gravity, which kicking one-legged does.

And I have just told you that a horse cannot possibly kick like that, using one leg.  It does not have the mechanical advantage necessary to do such a thing.  The video is a fake, almost certainly made for comedy.

Of course, I do not believe that our Creator made the universe in six twenty-four hour days either. S5

Your science is about as "established" as that of the flat-earthers, or the AGW demagogues. I have more solid, conclusive evidence on my side than you do on yours.

Yeah Ron, you're right as usual about how the universe was created. Just like that 'kick' was natural. S22

Ok, so much for the "more solid, conclusive evidence on my side" part. S22

Sigh... I told you how the scene was made. It wasn't real.

In real life, a horse can kick with one lag or two. The famous Jet-Li horse can kick with all four. The Bruce-Lee horse can kick with all four, hover, then spin in mid-air and kick again. Really.

In this case Bill, is your "you" second person or third person? Are you referring to all of us or just one person in particular?

Ronald, not sure if he met his end.  Stupid kids have this way of surviving things other reasonably intelligent people never get a chance.  But if you watched the next video after this one, you will see another stupid kid that really does qualify for the award.   He slips under the train.
