Don’t jump in front of your own moving car. February 3, 2010Posted by tyjorg in What I Learned Tonight.
What I learned tonight is, you should never jump in front of your own moving car. This is such a bad idea I could probably write a book on it, that’s how bad it is. There will come a time in your life when you hit a cross road, you either jump in front of your own moving car or you don’t. I urge you to NOT jump in front of your own moving car as it may hurt and embarrass you greatly. You may be asking yourself or the buddy next to you, how is this possible, shall I show you?
Bad news, eh? The man is smashed, lucky that door is cheap and gives way or I would not be able to show you that video. The point is still the same; don’t jump in front of the moving car! Lets move beyond the fact that he was stupid and tried to like make his car drive its self under the door as he opened (at least that’s what it looks like), that is a simple mistake brought on by human nature to be lazy. What do they always say, “Don’t fix a mistake, with another mistake.” This man made the first mistake but then tried to fix it with the worst mistake of all, jumping in front of his own moving car. This is worse than kicking your self in the back of the knee or tight roping over the Grand Canyon blind folded while the rope is on fire. We should think back to the Oregon Trail, what would be the biggest mistake they could make, there are many options, but I say it is taking the wrong trail. Ok so they start down the wrong trail and 3 days later the notice this. Three days on the Oregon Trail is nothing by the way, it took them like 6 months. Ok back to the story, they are going the WRONG way, so that is a mistake. Now if the wagon master (Dad) jumped off his wagon and stood in front of his wagon, well that is a worse mistake. Dad would be mocked by the wagon train, his family and his oxen as they crush him.
Life is pretty simple when you get down to it, there are a few guidelines you must live by. Some are laws, some are moral obligations, some are religious laws, and some are unwritten. Everyone’s guidelines are different but one is always the same. Never jump in front of your own moving car, this guideline will pass thought every racial difference, every cultural difference, and every religious difference this world has or will ever face. It will bind us to one another in a world of unity, or something like that.
