While working on a piece about zombie-themed cleaning kits I happened to google “lone zombie” and landed the cuteness. It’s part of a collection, “little figures conquer the world”.

How to get hit and run

Hit and runz 6485 450x630 How to get hit and run

I did the getaway driver part. (img by Drimagez)

  1. Get the plate number
  2. Make and model of the other vehicle
  3. Description of the driver (and anyone else)
  4. Note the time

I was involved in a hit-and-run the other day. The hit part, not the run part. All said and done, it was the best possible hit-and-run conceivable, except the runner got away (for now).

This can and does happen to people every day, and the results can vary between petty inconvenience and life-altering event.

There are many things you can’t control in a hit-and run, but if you can, those four things are more important than anything else.

That being said, there should probably be:

0.  Don’t panic. Open your eyes and look around. Is anyone bleeding? Crying? Take care of that shit first.

Assuming nobody is bleeding, nobody is crying, get the plate number and the other details if possible. Those are going to be what the police need to follow through on your report.

And yes, you need to report the crime.

Despite the fact that the running vehicle was totally nicer than my car, looking at the damage, for a minute I thought, Shit, I don’t need to get anyone else involved with this. What about my insurance? It’s not really a big deal.

The problem with that line of thought is that you don’t know if it is a big deal or not, and you can’t, because the other party left. Maybe that car is stolen, maybe it’s fleeing the scene of some other crime, maybe it’s just some kid out joyriding—but you can’t assume that it isn’t a big deal. You gotta call the cops.

Because in a movie, that’s the scene where the plucky kid, fresh from being ‘napped, kicks the steering wheel to cause an accident and draw attention to his situation.

Of course, this was in real life, so the driver was all over the road daytime drinking and didn’t want to lose his license, and hit a stopped car with not one but two people who got the plate and the time, which was next another car that got the plate, the make and the model, while in front of the fire chief. Who also got the plate.

Best possible hit-and-run.

Driver description? Looked like a tinted fucking window.

Slow Mo Sunday Saturn V


30 seconds of Apollo 11 launch footage becomes 8 minutes of pure awesome at 500 FPS.

The Saturn V rocket is the most powerful vehicle ever made. It is also the loudest; the vibrations caused by the sound of a Saturn V rocket will cause heart cavitation and a horrible death. The camera filming all of this, never moves, and doesn’t skip a frame while running just a few feet from the epicenter of bedlam.
