Myself, specifically. And I've seen the aftermath of a cyclist getting hit by a dumptruck. Makes your stomach lurch to see it.

Yes, it is a rough thing to see. I watched a good friend get hit by a 55mph car. When I have a moment I'll tell you about it.

Actually, I didn't see the person get directly hit....but they were t-boned on the driver side due to a semi hitting them and causing them to swing over into the south bound lanes of I-95. They were hit at about 75 mph, and died instantly. It was an 18 yr old boy, going to visit his mom for mothers day. Very, very sad.-Antoinette There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there.

I saw a car hit a kid probably 12 years old who did a complete flip, hit the pavement, got up, and hobbled down the street as the car quickly drove off.
