Was there a subtle pun that I missed there, or did you just misspell "pigeon"?

I wasn't aware that sometimes surviving a car crash could be feasably equated to taking a dump on a statue.

Live and learn, live and learn.

So, what you're saying is, if you crash a car but survive, that's lucky, and if your baby is killed by dogs and then your father is stabbed and his partner killed, that's unlucky?

Sometimes you're the deer, and other times you're the headlights.

Is there some sort of connection here? Was the Top Gear guy married to the woman in the car crash whose baby was killed by dogs, and whose father was stabbed? If so, they're having a very bad week.

Or are they all just BBC news articles about unfortunate events?

So what you're saying is, tomorrow you're going to do a worthwhile FPP?

So some people are lucky, some are unlucky, and some are really unlucky. None of these people did anything bad to anyone else. So while I could possibly see the statue metaphor, I'm not getting the pigeon part.

Further, bad luck of this type doesn't strike me as particularly interesting.

The thought comes to mind that if you KNOW you can't spell, using a spellchecker would be a good idea.

And then we get a spammer in the thread?

There are days when this is like MetaFilter, and days when it is like Fark.

But, if you can't have a good old "people that are nearly dead" thread, what's the point of getting out of bed?

Surely if they were lucky, they wouldn't have crashed their cars to begin with?

I'd like to join in, but I'm too busy ruminating on windshields and bugs.

That is all. Please carry on.
