…Bicycle races are dangerous?

Bicycle Car Crash

This has got to be one of the craziest pictures ever!

What you see here is the crash that killed one and left 10 others injured after the driver, who apparently had been using cocaine before this crash, fell asleep at the wheel and plowed into a bicycle race taking place in Monterrey, Mexico.

There really isn’t anything else to say besides “Wow!” and “Pay attention when driving near a bicycle race!”

…Andrew Olmsted will be missed?

Andrew Olmsted

Major Andrew Olmsted was a blogger and a fighter.

Unfortunately, being a fighter meant that Andrew spent time in some very dangerous places, and he was killed last Thursday while serving his country in Iraq.

Before he left, however, he penned a final post that he had asked his friend hilzoy to publish in the event that anything happened to him. The result is a touching and heartfelt look into the life of a soldier, including the quotes that he lived by, and the ideas that he died by.

It’s always good to remind yourself every once in a while of just how precious life is, so open your heart and give Andrew’s Final Post a read; because a final goodbye is as honest as anyone is ever going to be.
