You can't make this kind of stuff up...

News taken off the internet:

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - A man who was struck in the head by a train this weekend was also hit in the head by a New York City subway car three years ago, officials said Monday.

Parker T. Hall Houghtaling, of Stanfordville, 23, was hit in the head Nov. 18 by a Metro-North train as it pulled into the Poughkeepsie station. He was listed in stable condition Monday.
In 2002, Houghtaling was waiting at a subway station in Manhattan when he stuck his head out and was hit by a subway car. He was hospitalized with a shoulder injury, nose fractures and bruises, according to the Metropolitan Transit Authority.
It was unclear Monday what led to either incident.


OK, so, I don't even think this guy has an excuse for getting hit ONCE by a subway train. You don't stick your head out over the tracks as it is coming. I mean, that may just sound like friggin' common sense, but apparently, he didn't realize that. However, this jackass was so dumb that it happened to him again. I really have no words for this. There is nothing that can be said that can make this make sense. Unless there is some spirit that likes to push his head into oncoming trains, this guy deserves everything coming to him. In fact, I hope he gets hit a third time. We don't need people like this procreating.

So, we've been to New York and done the whole subway thing. The trains are SO loud when they come, I cannot even fathom how he cannot hear them in time to pull his head out of the way.

You don't understand people. He's STUPID! There are STUPID people out there. Really, STUPID people...They are born that way. Just really brainless. The first train that hit him probably scrambled what little brains he had then he did it again. STUPID...
