I think you missed the one where you've seen the transmission lines fall off on the trolley buses so many times that you could fix it yourself.

#54 is true. I'll be downtown with a guy from the UK, step onto the crosswalk, give the oncoming drivers the stare-down, and proceed to cross the street as the cars approach.

More than once, my companion has said, "Do that in London, and you will die.".

Had someone from Spain say the same thing. "In Barcelona, they will not stop.".

Yes, pedestrians have the right of way, but what if the car doesn't stop? Sure, you've made your point... but you're also dead

Like that tourist from New Zealand ,
Like that lady in Richmond ,
(or not so dead) like that critically injured kid in PoCo .

I'd prefer not to have to argue from the grave .

What if an individual chooses to jay walk in the middle of the night, and it's pissing rain, and there's very little lighting on that street, and the individual is wearing dark clothes, and they're drunk, and they get hit by a car. Assuming the driver is not speeding or is not DUI and the drunken individual just walks into the middle of the road abruptly giving the driver almost 0% reaction time to avoid the situation.

Who wins here?

They didn't do the stare-down. It's important.

^I'm hoping to recognize that the car isn't slowing down via staredown method, jump up in the air, land on the hood and run back over the roof and jump off the trunk all matrix-like all the while yelling obscenities in various languages
