Man, I like watching movie car chases what have the hero clinging to the hood of a car as it is speeding away from the scene of the crime.
I wouldn’t expect anything like it to happen in real life, but it did right here in Tennessee. They say life is stranger than fiction, and they’re right.
According to my hometown newspaper, The Knoxville News Sentinel, over in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, three teenagers left a Waffle House without paying for their food. An employee ran after them, stood in front of the car, and when he realized the car wasn’t gonna stop, he jumped on the hood and clung to it as the car reached 60 miles per hour.
Most remarkable: while clinging to the hood, he managed to use his cell phone to dial 911.
I’m still trying to figure out if he was brave or just didn’t use common sense at the time, cause common sense surely would’ve told him to git the license number of the car and don’t go jumping on the hood.
I read in the Christian Science Monitor the other day an article that said 19-year-old Bristol Palin is going on the lecture circuit to expand “her message beyond teen pregnancy” and talk about her experiences on the campaign trail and being in the media spotlight. Well, her mama is making a truck full of money, so why can’t little Bristol do it, too?
I aint sure how much wisdom a 19-year-old has.
