    I was just listening to tv. They showed a clip from Columbia, South America. The young people there have begun a new game(I don't think I would call it a game!) They lay on the railroad tracks between the two rails while the train rolls over them. Noone has been seriously hurt yet, but one has lost some fingers.
    Authorities are thinking about getting the message out not to do this.
    Would you really have have to think about getting the message out not to do this?

    I just don't get their infatuation with death. We just lost a young man to the hanging game. He was star athelete popular and he made a stupid mistake that cost him his life.

    Young people donīt seem to value life, I think it is very sad that they are prepared to do this for kicks. Are they just too thick to realise that if they do this they can die?????

    we have a third rail on our train tracks, where I live,it is electrified, and some youngsters try jumping over it as a train goes by, several have been killed and they issue all these warnings too, go into schools etc, the train companies get the blame. It is the idiots who take this risk, they already know its dangerous thats why they do it. Crazy!!!

    That game is as old as trains, unfortunately. I know of two people who died and one who lost a limb.
