In this particular instance they nearly get killed by a train.
#offtopic: The good: NEW GF (as of about a week), feels pretty great la di da. The bad: She's in Nepal for the next week and a half without phone or internet. Plane leaves at 1 she's in the airport at the moment. Fuck I'm gonna miss her.
