morbid curiosity sells, people stopping to see a car crash with mangled bodies and all that

I really hate that whole slowing down to look at wrecks crap....Come ON people, it's not like you haven't seen mangled cars before.
...If you need to stop and help, that's entirely different-I've got advanced first-aid training now, and I DO stop to make sure everyone's sucking oxygen.
But once the paramedics arrive I'm just cluttering shit up, and ought to get out of the way.

...When a tornado hit my neighborhood, I wasn't home.  I pulled up 5 minutes after, everyone was alive, they were looking at where the neighbor's trailer had been. ( Fortunately, he'd been at the bar, getting drunk)

Hope was the thing with feathers.
I smacked it with a hammer until it was red and squashy
