Talking Dictionary 606. Train Surfers Need More Training


606. He said, "I've done some dumb things in my life." His wife said, "You sure have. But at least you didn't kill yourself or anyone else. You did break your leg riding that motorcycle. But that was God's wake‐up call. It made you stop riding bikes. That broken leg probably saved your life." He said, "Yes, I got a second chance. I was lucky. Some people don't get second chances. I just read about a train surfer. He was lying on top of the 6 train in the Bronx. His head hit a steel beam or something. He died instantly." She said, "Some kids are so dumb, like the ones who wear their pants below their butts. But at least they don't get killed by steel beams." He said, "This wasn't some dumb kid. It was a 46‐year‐old man!" She said, "46?! That wasn't his age—it was his IQ!" 1.2
