迪顿和凯斯在 2015 年创造了“绝望之死”一词,用于描述 21 世纪白人工人阶级死亡的令人沮丧的方式:药物过量、自杀和肝硬化。 自 25 年 2020 月 XNUMX 日开始“种族清算”和取消警务以来,我们看到越来越多的黑人死于繁荣(凶杀和车祸)。

这起造成六人死亡的坠机事故发生在距离洛杉矶国际机场不远的拉布雷亚和斯劳森的拐角处。 查看温莎丘陵公园 是一个相当高档的社区,有 70% 是黑人。 到目前为止,已公开姓名的三名受害者都是黑人,车祸的肇事者是来自德克萨斯州的 ICU 神经病房旅行护士(即高薪),驾驶一辆梅赛德斯。 与她的六名受害者不同,她受轻伤逃脱了。

显然,没有任何一起交通事故可以自信地归因于大规模的社会趋势。 但是,自从当权派在乔治·弗洛伊德(George Floyd)去世后决定美国的大问题是太多的法治以来,看起来黑人的情况确实变得更糟了。 当警察在弗洛伊德日之后不再阻止黑人时,从 50 年 2020 月到 2020 年 XNUMX 月,黑人交通死亡人数猛增了约 XNUMX%:

    我在 1990 年代观看芝加哥当地新闻的印象是,在紧急情况下最有可能做一些有用的事情的人是白人雅皮士:例如,如果你躺在人行道上流血,那么你最有可能活到 30 年老普渡大学毕业生开车经过。

    芝加哥的莱斯大学毕业生并不多,但我救出了 1993 年被车撞的女士和 1999 年跳入芝加哥河的女士。

    第一次,我坐在车里想,“哇,如果我不比其他人远那么远,我会跑出去把那个女人扶到人行道上,以免她被一个第二辆车。” 但是在没有人做任何事情的两秒钟后,我跑过去把她从街上拉了出来。

    六年后,当我在 53 月初的下午 6 点 10 分看到一名妇女从麦迪逊街大桥 500 英尺处坠入寒冷的芝加哥河时,我立即开始向救生圈跑 911 码。在桥的另一边,因为我知道没有人注意到它。 我对着看热闹的人大喊大叫,拨打 XNUMX。我跑得很慢,但当我到达救生圈时,没有其他人有同样的想法。 幸运的是,另一个雅皮士明白我在做什么,给了我他的雨伞,把救生圈上的玻璃砸碎了。 我把它丢给了那个女人,当她落水时,她显然已经决定了她真的想活下去,然后抓住了,直到十分钟后警察乘坐快艇到达。

    好撒玛利亚人的法律因州而异。 在某些情况下,免责范围相当广泛,即如果您将某人从水中拉出并且他们没有呼吸,您不必接受过医疗培训即可进行心肺复苏术。 事实上,在某些州,不提供援助是违法的。

    当然,审判律师愿意选择在救援失败时起诉救援人员,因此国会不会用联邦法规来清理这种拼凑而成的州法律,免除善意努力帮助受伤人员的责任,因此即使是心脏病专家可能会旁观一个人在车祸后死亡,因为他不是有执照的 EMT .

    最奇怪的是旁观者的反应很少。
     
    当我年轻的时候,我住在一个有很多贫困黑人的地区,并注意到他们对其他人的同情心是多么的少。 有一次,在一个炎热的夏日,我正走在市中心的街道上。 我看到一个黑人老者瘫倒在轮椅上,旁边走着一脸冷漠的人。 我停下来问他还好吗。 他说他正在寻找一个慈善机构,提供免费的书包,并想给他的孙子们一些。 他迷路了,然后脱水了。 我从他那里得到了地址。 我走在街上,找到了它的位置,并从大楼里的自动售货机里买了一瓶水。 然后我回去了。 我告诉他怎么去那里,给他水,并提出帮助他去他想去的地方。 他说他可以做到并感谢我,然后我离开了。 这让我感到非常惊讶,以至于我是唯一一个停下来主动帮助他的人。

  4. Deaton and Case coined the term Deaths of Despair in 2015 for the depressing ways working class whites were dying in the 21st Century: overdoses, suicides, and cirrhosis.

    Since the “racial reckoning” and de-policing began on May 25, 2020, we’ve been seeing more blacks dying Deaths of Exuberance (homicides and car crashes).

    We need to focus on how we can ameliorate the effects of our technology on other-skinned, balm it so that only “our” people are able to die quietly forgotten. By bringing other-skinned deaths to media attention there will be a trickle down effect which will revive the rust belt Whites into a final deracinated rump the rest of the remaining nation can unite in opposition and annihilate.

    A sort of final despairing ghasp of “hhhhurrahh!”

    The statistical elite will lament the fact that there are no further people left to read their posts and send them bitcoin. Once the bitcoin generators die out, there will be a long thousand year rein of silence … can humanity survive this period of no statistical calculation? Who will make the pie chart charts? Wherefore goest gantt?

    Without a centralised political class are statistics even real? Or will they go the way of laid out chicken entrails, omens and rolled dice?

  5. Nobody is dying from deaths of despair. Both blacks and whites are dying from deaths of overindulgence. Drugs and booze are things people do when they want to party.

    Whites don't party that much these days.

    If you meet a White who's heavily into drugs & alcohol (it's important to remember that it's only a small subset of Whites who abuse substances), he's probably trying to medicate away the pain and cope with life. It's likely that he uses these substances in the privacy of his home, by himself or maybe with a spouse. He's not using these substances with large numbers of friends, at a fun party or nightclub.

    Interestingly, that wasn't always true.

    From the mid 1940s up through the early 90s, Whites partied a lot. More generally speaking, they enjoyed socializing, meeting people, and having fun with large groups of people. Especially during the 60-80s, the party/social scene was epic. Often to a point of destroying people. Back then, people recklessly abused alcohol, marijuana, LSD, cocaine, etc.

    While some of the substance back then was related to coping with depression, much of it was due to wanting to be "the life of the party." Back then, people want to party like the kids of "Ridgemont High."

    Things changed sometime during the early/mid 90s. By the early 2000s, the party/social scene had declined significantly. Over the last 15 years, whatever remained basically collapsed. These days it's rare for Whites to attempt to be "the life of the party."

    There are still Whites who like to party, but they are outliers. Some may occasionally get together in small groups, but they're not having huge parties every weekend. Not even close. The social/party scene is now small & quiet.

    The decline of social extraversion among American Whites is a very interesting phenomenon that needs to be studied more closely.

    When Whites abused drugs & alcohol in past decades, it was often due to exuberant partying. Not always, but often. Nowadays, the substance abuse is almost always due to depression or anxiety. Especially in hard-hit communities in the Rustbelt, Appalachia, and Ozarks. Those areas have been devastated by deindustrialization, obesity, illegal immigration, and the popularization of trashy pop culture. Affluent Whites have it much easier than working-class Whites, but even they often drink to cope with the anxieties of modern life (especially job & financial stress).

    Some people here assume that population groups stay the same over time. In reality, populations are dynamic. They change. Whites have changed a lot over the decades, as have their motivations for substance abuse.

    There aren’t that many Rice grads in Chicago, but I rescued a lady who was hit by car in 1993 and a lady who jumped in the Chicago River in 1999.

    In the first instance, I sat in my car thinking, “Wow, if I weren’t so much further away than so many other people, I’d run out there and help that woman to the sidewalk before she is run over by a second car.” But after two seconds of nobody doing anything, I ran over and got her out of the street.

    A half dozen years later when I saw a woman fall 53 feet from the Madison Street Bridge into the cold Chicago River in front of several thousand Rush Hour commuters at 6:10 PM in early May, I immediately started running 500 yards to the life preserver on the far side of the bridge because I knew nobody else had ever noticed it. I yelled at the gawkers to call 911. I’m a slow runner, but when I got to the life preserver, nobody else had thought the same thing. Fortunately, another yuppie understood what I was doing and gave me his umbrella to smash the glass over the life ring. I dropped it to the woman, who had apparently decided when she hit the water that she really did want to live, and grabbed on until the cops arrived in a speedboat ten minutes later.

    I have often wondered how many bridge suicides regret what they have just done in mid-air.

    One of the most horrifying things I have ever read was an account of a Golden Gate Bridge suicide survivor (Ken Baldwin) who said:

    “I wanted to disappear,” he said. “So the Golden Gate was the spot. I’d heard that the water just sweeps you under.” On the bridge, Baldwin counted to ten and stayed frozen. He counted to ten again, then vaulted over. “I still see my hands coming off the railing,” he said. As he crossed the chord* in flight, Baldwin recalls, “I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.

    I cannot imagine what that must have felt like. Imagine being given such an insight at the 确切时刻 when it would not do you any good.

    No doubt the woman you saved is anxious not to draw attention to herself (and I cannot say I blame her), but it would be interesting to know what she is up to today. Most people do not get a second chance and I can only hope she chose to make the most of hers.




    *The chord is a steel beam that forms the outermost portion of the bridge. Most jumpers stand on the chord for some time before they jump.

    我曾两次不得不从汽车残骸中救人。 第一次很简单:事故并不严重,司机意识清醒,没有受重伤。

    第二次是一团糟——字面意思。 破碎的玻璃,昏迷的乘客,作品。 我是第一个到现场的,所以我觉得有必要表演,但有点害怕和不情愿。 当我接近沉船时,我听到身后传来一个声音:“让开,我是一名下班的 EMT,我会处理这件事。退后一步,按我说的做。” 在我的生活中,我从未感到如此轻松过。

    第三个奇怪地结束了:我凌晨 4 点在高速公路上行驶,也就是路上唯一的汽车,这时我遇到一辆倒车着火的车辆。 我从后备箱里拿出灭火器(总是在你的后备箱里放一个灭火器、一根撬棍、一个急救箱和一个汽车工具箱——童子军法!)然后跑向车辆。 突然听到路边传来一个声音:“没事,别打扰,我们都出去了!” 一家人安全的坐在路边。 他们是怎么出去的。,我从来不知道。

    For the most part, they aren't exactly Dostoyevskeyian existentialists or something. They don't drugs and booze because they're tortured souls. They do it for the same reason they watch lots of TV.

    The real reason we have this problem is the decline of paternalism from elites that set standards and punishments for indulging in booze and drugs. It's now considered acceptable, legal, and there's no longer public shaming and strict enforcement of drug use.

    Working/lower class people will spend most of their time watching TV and eating, drinking, and abusing drugs to excess if they can get away with it. Here are workers with good UAW union jobs:

    We came around a corner one time, and I saw a body flying in the air. He was on the way down. A car had just hit him, because the 84 y/o man had tried to cross the street between parked cars and almost certainly looked left first - but this was a one-way street the other way.

    I mention this because my friend who was in Med School gave him CPR and all that. He'd never do something like that again, he told me a couple of years later. (The guy died a couple of hours later in the hospital though anyway.)

    Doing what iSteve did is admirable, and I don't know exactly how one could get in trouble with lawyers, but who knows? One time in Baldwin Hills, California, I saw an ~ 10 y/o girl out of control going downhill on a bike (her feet got off the pedals) hit a pole and break her arm. I went into the neighborhood to get someone to call an ambulance - this was before cell phones - and it took a couple of houses before anyone would talk to me. They thought this honky was up to no good or was a salesman or something.

    I finally got back around onto that big road and just ended up telling the ambulance guys what happened.

    There was another horrific accident last Sunday in NW Illinois. A women with her 4 children plus a teen friend of the oldest daughter were all killed by a 22 year old wrong way driver, Jennifer Fernandez, a little after 2 AM on Interstate 90. Thomas Dobosz, 32, the husband and father of the deceased family has also died from injuries he suffered in the crash.

    So far, no explanation has been given as to why Ms. Fernandez was driving the wrong way though witnesses report she had made a U turn and changed direction shortly before the crash. I have also not been able to find a picture of Fernandez. A blood alcohol level problem would have been known by now so maybe police are waiting for a toxicology report but no criminal charges have been filed. The good news is the Chicago DA is not conducting the investigation.

    Earlier this year, a 59 year old negro with an absolutely horrible driving history, Gary Dean Robinson, killed himself and his passenger, as well as 7 members of an hispanic family when he blew through a red light at 100+ plus mph in North Las Vegas, Nevada and the van the family was travelling in.

    I found Mr. Robinson’s driving history but, so far, have not been able to find the driving records for the LA nurse or Jennifer Fernandez. In Florida, it is pretty routine to make those public in felony driving cases but Illinois and California are deep blue states who do not like to make public public records.

    Good Samaritan laws vary by state. In some the exemption from liability is pretty broad, i.e. you don’t have to be medically trained to give CPR if you pull someone out of the water and they aren’t breathing. In fact, in some states, it is illegal not to render aid.

    Of course the trial lawyers like to have the option to sue a rescuer if the rescue goes south so Congress won’t clean this patchwork of state laws up with a federal statute waiving liability for a good faith effort to assist an injured person thus even a cardiologist might stand by and watch a person die after a car accident because he is not a licensed EMT and could be liable if the dying person claimed he suffered a soft tissue injury to his back as a result of being pulled from the vehicle by the doctor.

  21. They say the woman driver is also being charged with the death of the unborn baby (8 1/2 mos.) in the dead mother, who was on her way to see her doctor. Legally isn’t it still a ‘cluster of cells with a heartbeat’ in the State? And let’s say the pregnant woman was on her way to the doctor, but it was an abortion doctor?

Many years ago I had a near-thing when the hook on the throttle control spring on the ancient Citroen 2CV snapped off as I tried to brake for a signposted roadworks contraflow. As the lane switch approached scarily fast, I spotted a lay-by (rest/parking area) and managed to swerve in and bring the car to a halt with the engine going crazy. That 2CV had a top speed of 72mph. In a more powerful vehicle I doubt if I could have controlled the car. The whole episode lasted perhaps 20-25 seconds.

    Well, I definitely agree with that. If it's been a rough day why can't you just pick up a bottle of wine on the way home from work.

    Some drunks seem really motivated to get behind the wheel of a car once they get tanked. No idea why.

  26. I just completed a long road trip through the southeastern states, mostly on interstates, and I will say that both blacks and whites have drivers who like to speed faster than the other cars. I don’t usually say “too fast” on a controlled access highway, because I think most speed limits in interstates are too low. If they want to drive fast, that’s fine with me. I just wish they’d do it a little more courteously to other drivers instead of acting – especially the blacks – like other drivers are an obstacle to avoid.

    That being said, the blacks and the whites speed differently. Whites are usually redneck “dad” types in large Ford pickups or Chevy suburbans and they will roar up behind left lane traffic and slow down and cruise in the left lane for a while, I supposed hoping at first that the left lane will clear, but then, eventually, they’ll start looking for an opportunity to more or less safely pass in the right lane. Then they’ll do an unsafe weave or two and be on their way.

    A black speeder is usually in a Nissan or lower end American sedan, very occasionally a C Class (lower end) Mercedes, and they will roar right up behind traffic in the left lane and immediately attempt to weave in and out without changing speed. They will only hit the brakes if they have no choice and then they’ll do the same thing as the white speeder, but a lot more aggressively and impatiently. I am surprised that I didn’t see more accidents considering the way that they try to slide into very small spaces in between cars, and, given that these are smaller cars and lower to the ground, they are harder to see sometimes than the big pickups. Plus, the drivers are situated lower and have a smaller field of view.

    This is consistent with what I’ve seen in other parts of the country too, except for the very middle – from Texas north in to the Great Plains and over to the mountains – because there aren’t as many blacks in those areas. The whites still speed the same way there.

    I find it interesting that not only can you very accurately tell the race of the driver by what type of car it is, they also have very specific driving styles.

  33. Apparently very white actress Anne Heche also suffers from exuberance (possibly the kind of exuberance you get by drinking vodka for breakfast).

    She was doing 90 before she drove her car into someone’s house – she drove thru the front and ended up near the back and survived the crash (those 1950s LA tract houses were kind of flimsy so you can drive thru the walls without hurting much – it’s just a few 2x4s and some drywall) but was pinned in the wreckage. Meanwhile, she had set the house on fire and the flames were really getting going with her stuck in the car. A whole bunch of firemen showed up but it still took like 1/2 hr to put out the flames enough to get her out of the car. By some miracle she was still alive after all this (barely) and didn’t kill anyone else. The house was a total loss.

    Heche was once the “girlfriend” of Ellen DeGeneres despite not being gay. Some women are attracted to money and power, never mind the arrangement of the organs.

    Anne Heche says she was ''insane'' for 31 years:


    Heche’s problems began with childhood sexual abuse at the hands of her father. A church choir director who lived a secret gay life, he infected her with herpes and died of AIDS when she was 12. To cope, she developed a second personality, a heavenly alien named Celestia. ”I believed I was from another planet. I think I was insane,” she says. Celestia was a presence throughout Heche’s adult life — during her two-year relationship with friendly father-figure Steve Martin (who was 24 years her senior) and her three years with Ellen DeGeneres.

    A day after their break-up, Heche’s inner voice told her to board a spaceship and take a hit of Ecstasy; she was found wandering in a daze in Fresno, Calif. She says, ”Fresno was the culmination of a journey and a world that I thought I needed to escape to in order to find love.”

  34. I once had a guy end up with his car in my driveway with the car on its side and facing the street. When I first came out (after hearing a boom) I couldn’t understand what had happened. The engine was still running and the motor oil was dripping out of the dipstick hole onto the hot manifold so it was starting to smoke pretty good but was not on fire. I yelled to the guy to turn off the motor but he was dazed (and as it turned out drunk) and didn’t listen at first. The cops soon showed up and got him out of the car (the door now facing the sky) and after determining he was unhurt, put him in cuffs. This made a big impression on my son who was then like 5 or 6 and saw all of this live – being arrested for drunk driving was not just something you see on TV.

    Afterward, I figured out that the guy was going up the street at high speed and crossed the centerline (luckily no one was coming in the other direction) and then hit the curb which “tripped” the car onto its side and the car then skidded some distance on its side, burning off speed without actually hitting anything other than the curb and landed in my driveway as neatly as if this was a planned Hollywood stunt. The guy literally did not have a scratch on him. God watches out for fools and drunkards.

    I once had a guy end up with his car in my driveway with the car on its side and facing the street. When I first came out (after hearing a boom) I couldn't understand what had happened. The engine was still running and the motor oil was dripping out of the dipstick hole onto the hot manifold so it was starting to smoke pretty good but was not on fire. I yelled to the guy to turn off the motor but he was dazed (and as it turned out drunk) and didn't listen at first. The cops soon showed up and got him out of the car (the door now facing the sky) and after determining he was unhurt, put him in cuffs. This made a big impression on my son who was then like 5 or 6 and saw all of this live - being arrested for drunk driving was not just something you see on TV.

    Afterward, I figured out that the guy was going up the street at high speed and crossed the centerline (luckily no one was coming in the other direction) and then hit the curb which "tripped" the car onto its side and the car then skidded some distance on its side, burning off speed without actually hitting anything other than the curb and landed in my driveway as neatly as if this was a planned Hollywood stunt. The guy literally did not have a scratch on him. God watches out for fools and drunkards.

    Drunks are less likely to tense up due to the poor reaction time/reflexes from the alcohol. Tensing up before a major collision causes more injuries than being limp. Or so I have been told.

    芝加哥的莱斯大学毕业生并不多,但我救出了 1993 年被车撞的女士和 1999 年跳入芝加哥河的女士。

    第一次,我坐在车里想,“哇,如果我不比其他人远那么远,我会跑出去把那个女人扶到人行道上,以免她被一个第二辆车。” 但是在没有人做任何事情的两秒钟后,我跑过去把她从街上拉了出来。

    六年后,当我在 53 月初的下午 6 点 10 分看到一名妇女从麦迪逊街大桥 500 英尺处坠入寒冷的芝加哥河时,我立即开始向救生圈跑 911 码。在桥的另一边,因为我知道没有人注意到它。 我对着看热闹的人大喊大叫,拨打 XNUMX。我跑得很慢,但当我到达救生圈时,没有其他人有同样的想法。 幸运的是,另一个雅皮士明白我在做什么,给了我他的雨伞,把救生圈上的玻璃砸碎了。 我把它丢给了那个女人,当她落水时,她显然已经决定了她真的想活下去,然后抓住了,直到十分钟后警察乘坐快艇到达。

    They say the woman driver is also being charged with the death of the unborn baby (8 1/2 mos.) in the dead mother, who was on her way to see her doctor. Legally isn't it still a 'cluster of cells with a heartbeat' in the State? And let's say the pregnant woman was on her way to the doctor, but it was an abortion doctor?

    That is lifted from the Talmud tractate Bava Kamma 26b "If one threw a child from a roof and another came along and impaled him on his sword and the child died etc." But Anonymous's point here is subtler ; If we accept that 'A woman's right to her own body' defines the embryonic child as a non-person if the woman chooses abortion, yet as a person for purposes of charging a third party with homicide, then we are saying that the personhood of the embryonic child is dependent on the will/whim of the mother. Hence his/her question; if the mother is on way to aborting child hasn't she already declared child non-person? Can 3rd party still be prosecuted for homicide? Can always change mind etc. but points to an absurdity in legal definition.

    We came around a corner one time, and I saw a body flying in the air. He was on the way down. A car had just hit him, because the 84 y/o man had tried to cross the street between parked cars and almost certainly looked left first – but this was a one-way street the other way.

    I mention this because my friend who was in Med School gave him CPR and all that. He’d never do something like that again, he told me a couple of years later. (The guy died a couple of hours later in the hospital though anyway.)

    Doing what iSteve did is admirable, and I don’t know exactly how one could get in trouble with lawyers, but who knows? One time in Baldwin Hills, California, I saw an ~ 10 y/o girl out of control going downhill on a bike (her feet got off the pedals) hit a pole and break her arm. I went into the neighborhood to get someone to call an ambulance – this was before cell phones – and it took a couple of houses before anyone would talk to me. They thought this honky was up to no good or was a salesman or something.

    I finally got back around onto that big road and just ended up telling the ambulance guys what happened.

    Heather Mac Donald has spotted another way BLM has found to kill blacks: more black preferences in admission to medical schools. No one has asked ordinary blacks, the people who actually go to doctors to be treated, whether they prefer: a) black doctors; or b) the most competent doctors available.

    Fortunately, another yuppie understood what I was doing and gave me his umbrella to smash the glass over the life ring. I dropped it to the woman, who had apparently decided when she hit the water that she really did want to live

    I have often wondered how many bridge suicides regret what they have just done in mid-air.

    One of the most horrifying things I have ever read was an account of a Golden Gate Bridge suicide survivor (Ken Baldwin) who said:

    “I wanted to disappear,” he said. “So the Golden Gate was the spot. I’d heard that the water just sweeps you under.” On the bridge, Baldwin counted to ten and stayed frozen. He counted to ten again, then vaulted over. “I still see my hands coming off the railing,” he said. As he crossed the chord* in flight, Baldwin recalls, “I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.

    I cannot imagine what that must have felt like. Imagine being given such an insight at the 确切时刻 when it would not do you any good.

    No doubt the woman you saved is anxious not to draw attention to herself (and I cannot say I blame her), but it would be interesting to know what she is up to today. Most people do not get a second chance and I can only hope she chose to make the most of hers.

    *The chord is a steel beam that forms the outermost portion of the bridge. Most jumpers stand on the chord for some time before they jump.

    "I have often wondered how many bridge suicides regret what they have just done in mid-air."

    Somewhere among my books is a police autobiography from way back - 30s/40s/50s. As a young constable in London the author worked with the Thames River Police aka Thames Division of the Met, one of whose jobs was retrieving drowned people, mostly suicides, from the river. After investigating many of these cases for the inquest, he noticed that those suicides crossed in love had torn and bloody nails, as they'd tried to cling onto the bridge piers and live, whereas bankrupts and the terminally ill just let themselves drown.

    So don't try and drown yourself because she's gone off with someone else.

    Jumping 53' into water won't kill you unless you can't swim or have cement blocks tied to your feet. As teenagers we used to jump of a bride that was 85' above the river (you had to wear shoes or you'd bruise the bottoms of your feet). That bridge also had a rope swing under it, which would actually swing you up higher to about 90'+. Another friend of mine jumped off the top of a dam that was 110' from where he jumped from to the surface of the water. He did that for a school project his senior year.

    The theory if I recall correctly is that once you offer aid you have a duty to exercise reasonable care in rendering the aid. The law doesn't impose a duty of bystanders to act, but once they act they have duties which attach. I doubt that the successful cases where plaintiff prevailed were situations in which the defendant saved the plaintiff's life where the plaintiff would otherwise have surely died, but rather cases where the intervention caused a substantial additional injury.

    I think the "Good Samaritan" laws just codified in statute bright lines for when the rescuer is immune from suit.

    The real reason we have this problem is the decline of paternalism from elites that set standards and punishments for indulging in booze and drugs. It’s now considered acceptable, legal, and there’s no longer public shaming and strict enforcement of drug use.

    I once had a guy end up with his car in my driveway with the car on its side and facing the street. When I first came out (after hearing a boom) I couldn't understand what had happened. The engine was still running and the motor oil was dripping out of the dipstick hole onto the hot manifold so it was starting to smoke pretty good but was not on fire. I yelled to the guy to turn off the motor but he was dazed (and as it turned out drunk) and didn't listen at first. The cops soon showed up and got him out of the car (the door now facing the sky) and after determining he was unhurt, put him in cuffs. This made a big impression on my son who was then like 5 or 6 and saw all of this live - being arrested for drunk driving was not just something you see on TV.

    Afterward, I figured out that the guy was going up the street at high speed and crossed the centerline (luckily no one was coming in the other direction) and then hit the curb which "tripped" the car onto its side and the car then skidded some distance on its side, burning off speed without actually hitting anything other than the curb and landed in my driveway as neatly as if this was a planned Hollywood stunt. The guy literally did not have a scratch on him. God watches out for fools and drunkards.

    What is meant by the term “high trust society” is usually that people in the society trust one another.

    I had some very similar thoughts the other day.

    My take was that the controllers want a zero trust society among the plebes and an infinite trust society among themselves with virtually no possibility of interactions or transitions between the two groups.

    So, the plebe would face a life in a system that endlessly requires him to prove his identity and pay a tax for the privilege of doing so to gain access to the most basic functions of life.

    The controllers would face none of those challenges and do as they pleased. I suppose that's not that different from their current status.

    Anne Heche says she was ''insane'' for 31 years:


    Heche’s problems began with childhood sexual abuse at the hands of her father. A church choir director who lived a secret gay life, he infected her with herpes and died of AIDS when she was 12. To cope, she developed a second personality, a heavenly alien named Celestia. ”I believed I was from another planet. I think I was insane,” she says. Celestia was a presence throughout Heche’s adult life — during her two-year relationship with friendly father-figure Steve Martin (who was 24 years her senior) and her three years with Ellen DeGeneres.

    A day after their break-up, Heche’s inner voice told her to board a spaceship and take a hit of Ecstasy; she was found wandering in a daze in Fresno, Calif. She says, ”Fresno was the culmination of a journey and a world that I thought I needed to escape to in order to find love.”

    我在 1990 年代观看芝加哥当地新闻的印象是,在紧急情况下最有可能做一些有用的事情的人是白人雅皮士:例如,如果你躺在人行道上流血,那么你最有可能活到 30 年老普渡大学毕业生开车经过。

    芝加哥的莱斯大学毕业生并不多,但我救出了 1993 年被车撞的女士和 1999 年跳入芝加哥河的女士。

    第一次,我坐在车里想,“哇,如果我不比其他人远那么远,我会跑出去把那个女人扶到人行道上,以免她被一个第二辆车。” 但是在没有人做任何事情的两秒钟后,我跑过去把她从街上拉了出来。

    六年后,当我在 53 月初的下午 6 点 10 分看到一名妇女从麦迪逊街大桥 500 英尺处坠入寒冷的芝加哥河时,我立即开始向救生圈跑 911 码。在桥的另一边,因为我知道没有人注意到它。 我对着看热闹的人大喊大叫,拨打 XNUMX。我跑得很慢,但当我到达救生圈时,没有其他人有同样的想法。 幸运的是,另一个雅皮士明白我在做什么,给了我他的雨伞,把救生圈上的玻璃砸碎了。 我把它丢给了那个女人,当她落水时,她显然已经决定了她真的想活下去,然后抓住了,直到十分钟后警察乘坐快艇到达。

Many possible reasons, but one that I seem to notice is that a lot of black motorists are not just enthusiastic users of their phones while driving, I have on more than one occasion been in traffic where a black driver was actually Facetiming while in city traffic. Normally white soccer moms are also people you need to be alert around because they always seem to be on their phones, but I haven’t seen any actually using video.

    The other thing I have seen a couple of times in my city is where a group of blacks in multiple cars are following each other around while filming with their phones, presumably for Instagram or some amateur rap video. Earlier this summer I witnessed this with two women literally sitting out of open passenger front and rear windows while holding up their phones behind the lead car (tricked out Charger) as it hit a relatively high speed left turn with them barely hanging on.

    I have often wondered how many bridge suicides regret what they have just done in mid-air.

    One of the most horrifying things I have ever read was an account of a Golden Gate Bridge suicide survivor (Ken Baldwin) who said:

    “I wanted to disappear,” he said. “So the Golden Gate was the spot. I’d heard that the water just sweeps you under.” On the bridge, Baldwin counted to ten and stayed frozen. He counted to ten again, then vaulted over. “I still see my hands coming off the railing,” he said. As he crossed the chord* in flight, Baldwin recalls, “I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.

    I cannot imagine what that must have felt like. Imagine being given such an insight at the 确切时刻 when it would not do you any good.

    No doubt the woman you saved is anxious not to draw attention to herself (and I cannot say I blame her), but it would be interesting to know what she is up to today. Most people do not get a second chance and I can only hope she chose to make the most of hers.

    “I have often wondered how many bridge suicides regret what they have just done in mid-air.”

    Somewhere among my books is a police autobiography from way back – 30s/40s/50s. As a young constable in London the author worked with the Thames River Police aka Thames Division of the Met, one of whose jobs was retrieving drowned people, mostly suicides, from the river. After investigating many of these cases for the inquest, he noticed that those suicides crossed in love had torn and bloody nails, as they’d tried to cling onto the bridge piers and live, whereas bankrupts and the terminally ill just let themselves drown.

    So don’t try and drown yourself because she’s gone off with someone else.

    Jumping 53′ into water won’t kill you unless you can’t swim or have cement blocks tied to your feet. As teenagers we used to jump of a bride that was 85′ above the river (you had to wear shoes or you’d bruise the bottoms of your feet). That bridge also had a rope swing under it, which would actually swing you up higher to about 90’+. Another friend of mine jumped off the top of a dam that was 110′ from where he jumped from to the surface of the water. He did that for a school project his senior year.

    The second time was a bloody mess — literally. Broken glass, unconscious passengers, the works. I was first on the scene so I felt obliged to act, but a little scared and reluctant. As I approached the wreck, I heard a voice from behind me: “Step out of the way, I’m an off-duty EMT, I’ll handle this. Just stand back and do what I tell you.” I never felt more relieved in my life.

    A third one ended weirdly: I was driving on the highway at 4 AM, viz the only car on the road, when I came across an upside-down vehicle on fire. I grabbed the fire extinguisher out of my trunk (ALWAYS keep in your trunk a fire extinguisher, a crowbar, a first aid kit and an auto tool kit — Boy Scout law!) and ran toward the vehicle. Suddenly I heard a voice from the side of the road: “It’s OK, don’t bother, we all got out okay!” There was an entire family sitting safely by the roadside. How they got out OK., I never figured out.

    Doing what iSteve did is admirable, and I don't know exactly how one could get in trouble with lawyers, but who knows? One time in Baldwin Hills, California, I saw an ~ 10 y/o girl out of control going downhill on a bike (her feet got off the pedals) hit a pole and break her arm. I went into the neighborhood to get someone to call an ambulance - this was before cell phones - and it took a couple of houses before anyone would talk to me. They thought this honky was up to no good or was a salesman or something.

    I finally got back around onto that big road and just ended up telling the ambulance guys what happened.

    The theory if I recall correctly is that once you offer aid you have a duty to exercise reasonable care in rendering the aid. The law doesn’t impose a duty of bystanders to act, but once they act they have duties which attach. I doubt that the successful cases where plaintiff prevailed were situations in which the defendant saved the plaintiff’s life where the plaintiff would otherwise have surely died, but rather cases where the intervention caused a substantial additional injury.

    I think the “Good Samaritan” laws just codified in statute bright lines for when the rescuer is immune from suit.

    That is lifted from the Talmud tractate Bava Kamma 26b “If one threw a child from a roof and another came along and impaled him on his sword and the child died etc.” But Anonymous’s point here is subtler ; If we accept that ‘A woman’s right to her own body’ defines the embryonic child as a non-person if the woman chooses abortion, yet as a person for purposes of charging a third party with homicide, then we are saying that the personhood of the embryonic child is dependent on the will/whim of the mother. Hence his/her question; if the mother is on way to aborting child hasn’t she already declared child non-person? Can 3rd party still be prosecuted for homicide? Can always change mind etc. but points to an absurdity in legal definition.

    第三个奇怪地结束了:我凌晨 4 点在高速公路上行驶,也就是路上唯一的汽车,这时我遇到一辆倒车着火的车辆。 我从后备箱里拿出灭火器(总是在你的后备箱里放一个灭火器、一根撬棍、一个急救箱和一个汽车工具箱——童子军法!)然后跑向车辆。 突然听到路边传来一个声音:“没事,别打扰,我们都出去了!” 一家人安全的坐在路边。 他们是怎么出去的。,我从来不知道。

    Whites don’t party that much these days.

    If you meet a White who’s heavily into drugs & alcohol (it’s important to remember that it’s only a small subset of Whites who abuse substances), he’s probably trying to medicate away the pain and cope with life. It’s likely that he uses these substances in the privacy of his home, by himself or maybe with a spouse. He’s not using these substances with large numbers of friends, at a fun party or nightclub.

    Interestingly, that wasn’t always true.

    From the mid 1940s up through the early 90s, Whites partied a lot. More generally speaking, they enjoyed socializing, meeting people, and having fun with large groups of people. Especially during the 60-80s, the party/social scene was epic. Often to a point of destroying people. Back then, people recklessly abused alcohol, marijuana, LSD, cocaine, etc.

    While some of the substance back then was related to coping with depression, much of it was due to wanting to be “the life of the party.” Back then, people want to party like the kids of “Ridgemont High.”

    Things changed sometime during the early/mid 90s. By the early 2000s, the party/social scene had declined significantly. Over the last 15 years, whatever remained basically collapsed. These days it’s rare for Whites to attempt to be “the life of the party.”

    There are still Whites who like to party, but they are outliers. Some may occasionally get together in small groups, but they’re not having huge parties every weekend. Not even close. The social/party scene is now small & quiet.

    The decline of social extraversion among American Whites is a very interesting phenomenon that needs to be studied more closely.

    When Whites abused drugs & alcohol in past decades, it was often due to exuberant partying. Not always, but often. Nowadays, the substance abuse is almost always due to depression or anxiety. Especially in hard-hit communities in the Rustbelt, Appalachia, and Ozarks. Those areas have been devastated by deindustrialization, obesity, illegal immigration, and the popularization of trashy pop culture. Affluent Whites have it much easier than working-class Whites, but even they often drink to cope with the anxieties of modern life (especially job & financial stress).

    Some people here assume that population groups stay the same over time. In reality, populations are dynamic. They change. Whites have changed a lot over the decades, as have their motivations for substance abuse.

    "I have often wondered how many bridge suicides regret what they have just done in mid-air."

    Somewhere among my books is a police autobiography from way back - 30s/40s/50s. As a young constable in London the author worked with the Thames River Police aka Thames Division of the Met, one of whose jobs was retrieving drowned people, mostly suicides, from the river. After investigating many of these cases for the inquest, he noticed that those suicides crossed in love had torn and bloody nails, as they'd tried to cling onto the bridge piers and live, whereas bankrupts and the terminally ill just let themselves drown.

    我不记得我在哪里听到的(也许其他人也听到了,并且可以插话?),但今年早些时候,我听了一半的音频流,乘用车人体工程学的话题出现了。

    故事的主旨似乎是人们越来越担心现代汽车驾驶舱正迅速变得过于“繁忙”和复杂,以至于驾驶员也无法有效地关注车内发生的事情(例如使用仪表)就像车外正在发生的事情(例如,倒霉的行人被司机分心地试图调收音机)。

    我完全记得这一点的唯一原因是因为他们提到的人之一是负责 F-18 战斗机人体工程学的小伙子。 似乎军用飞机公司对平衡信息负载的担忧(例如,以有效但不分散注意力的方式告诉飞行员他们的空速)也在乘用车中发挥作用。

    显然,这家伙担心驾驶乘用车的人比战斗机飞行员还要不堪重负。 他的建议是,汽车制造商应该开始在这两个方面仔细研究 什么 他们在设计室内布局和仪表盘以及 为什么 他们正在这样做。

    我不是一个“汽车人”,但我在新车中看到的一些仪表设置让我怀疑它们是否完全由软件工程师设计,他们从未真正驾驶过他们的装备已安装。

    In CA, vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor at the discretion of the prosecutor.

    We came around a corner one time, and I saw a body flying in the air. He was on the way down. A car had just hit him, because the 84 y/o man had tried to cross the street between parked cars and almost certainly looked left first - but this was a one-way street the other way.

    I mention this because my friend who was in Med School gave him CPR and all that. He'd never do something like that again, he told me a couple of years later. (The guy died a couple of hours later in the hospital though anyway.)

    Doing what iSteve did is admirable, and I don't know exactly how one could get in trouble with lawyers, but who knows? One time in Baldwin Hills, California, I saw an ~ 10 y/o girl out of control going downhill on a bike (her feet got off the pedals) hit a pole and break her arm. I went into the neighborhood to get someone to call an ambulance - this was before cell phones - and it took a couple of houses before anyone would talk to me. They thought this honky was up to no good or was a salesman or something.

    I finally got back around onto that big road and just ended up telling the ambulance guys what happened.

    I had some very similar thoughts the other day.

    My take was that the controllers want a zero trust society among the plebes and an infinite trust society among themselves with virtually no possibility of interactions or transitions between the two groups.

    So, the plebe would face a life in a system that endlessly requires him to prove his identity and pay a tax for the privilege of doing so to gain access to the most basic functions of life.

    The controllers would face none of those challenges and do as they pleased. I suppose that’s not that different from their current status.

I guess you could make out a case for "depraved heart" murder (such as shooting into a crowd) but while it's not implausible that she was trying to commit suicide by hitting these other cars, unless she confesses it's going to be hard to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. There's no bright line where gross negligence become depraved heart. She was after all driving down the street and not charging into a crowd of pedestrians for example. What if she had been going 60 in a 40 zone? Is that depraved heart or just very negligent? 70?

    In CA, vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor at the discretion of the prosecutor. A felony conviction is punishable by probation with a county jail sentence of up to one year, or state prison for two, four, or six years, and a fine of up to $10,000. In other words she is looking at 6 years max, or maybe less if she has a clean record.

    I suppose it's possible that they will upgrade the charges as the evidence is revealed but that's how it stands now.

    “… maybe less if she has a clean record.”

    According to the LAT:

    “California Highway Patrol investigators identified 13 prior crashes involving Linton. Those incidents are the foundation for the district attorney’s case that she knew the dangers of reckless driving.”

    A lot of the Chinese reluctantance to help strangers is attributed to a famous case where a man helped a woman who fell getting off of a bus. She claimed he caused the problem (even though he was a good sammaritan) and sued him for damages. She won a fortune. The judge ruled that if he didn’t cause it, he would not have helped her.

    Could a fire extinguisher not explode from the impact of an accident and send off shrapnel like a grenade?
     
    No. The valve or gauge will break off and discharge the contents long before the pressure vessel explodes.

    They make standard first aid kits for automobiles. In some countries they are legally required. A lot of luxury cars seem to come with them. You are not an EMT - the $20 kind is good enough for you. Mostly it's just a bunch of bandages.

    He didn't kill "George Floyd." The mannikins they put on the gurney looked different and , was shorter. This has been covered in many venues. And no, it's not conspiracy theory, it was observation.

    This is the same load of garbage Steve keeps trying to push. No, it's not the lack of terrorism and piracy on the roads. You can even see before George Floyd, black deaths were rising. The lockdowns and vaccines are what's causing this, and nothing else. There's literally zero evidence that armed gangsters harassing drivers does anything to make people drive safer. In fact, my experience shows the opposite. The gangsters drive recklessly and provoke fear and erratic driving.

    谢谢。

    That’s what came to my mind. Many years ago I had a near-thing when the hook on the throttle control spring on the ancient Citroen 2CV snapped off as I tried to brake for a signposted roadworks contraflow. As the lane switch approached scarily fast, I spotted a lay-by (rest/parking area) and managed to swerve in and bring the car to a halt with the engine going crazy. That 2CV had a top speed of 72mph. In a more powerful vehicle I doubt if I could have controlled the car. The whole episode lasted perhaps 20-25 seconds.

    o get a second-degree murder conviction, prosecutors must prove she acted with implied malice and knew the act of driving at a high speed on city streets was dangerous to human life…

    investigators found she has a history of dangerous crashes and knew the threat posed by her driving behavior, prosecutors said…

    California Highway Patrol investigators identified 13 prior crashes involving Linton. Those incidents are the foundation for the district attorney’s case that she knew the dangers of reckless driving…

    The five counts of vehicular manslaughter against her are for the deaths of the four adults and the baby, who was about two weeks shy of 1 year old. Ryan’s unborn child cannot be included in those charges…

    Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Natalie Stone denied her bail, which previously had been set at \$9 million, at the request of the district attorney’s office, which said she is a flight risk. Linton’s permanent address is in Texas, and she’s currently renting a room in Los Angeles as a traveling nurse. She was set to travel to Hawaii for work…

    Attorney Halim Dhanidina asked the court to continue Linton’s arraignment to October because he is reviewing her out-of-state history of “documented profound mental health issues.”…

    She looks crazy in the courtroom picture.
