am i the only one that feels ashamed that everyone walks away rather than try to help? i dont want to sound like a self righteous price but even so.

What could they have done, jumped in front of a train like Hancock? Everyone was at least 10 feet away before realizing what was happening.

I mean yea I'd help if it was some helpless old **** that was wandering and fell on, but this was just a dumb bitch throwing herself at a dude for god knows what reason. If you did try to help there wouldn't be enough time anyway considering how close the train is haha

Why would you care about two disgusting animals trying to kill eachother.

Let the filthy race die out.

i care because im a decent human being. they may be petty enough to try to not care about another human life but i will not sink to that level.

I agree with you completely, however, when you're presented with such a situation where you might be in danger (I know these people weren't, but you're body will still react to a dangerous situation plus your rise in adrenalin in the same way, even if you are out of harms way) your body goes into automatic and you have 3 options. Fight, Flight or Freeze

Obviously in those who ran, their flight response took over
It seems no one fancied fighting a train
And in those who did nothing, either they didn't notice or it was a freeze response where your body can't think of any way to deal with the situation and kind of shuts down...

Or maybe they just wanted to see what human brain looks like...

like i keep telling people. i understand all that, its the fact that EVERYONE just walks away. the guy reading the paper standing next to them looks up before they get to the edge of the platform, folds his paper up before they fall and walks away. no one runs, they just calmly leave the station, dont even hang around to make sure they are OK or not.

To be fair would you want to ruin your day by seeing blood and guts and brains everywhere? I would walk away too.

Sometimes i try not to be a self-righteous price.

But how can I resist when I'm only 3 easy payments of 19.95!!!!!!

It seems to me they're backing away because the train made a very loud noise, I assume the breaks must have been slammed by the driver. All the people close enough did not see/notice the assault before they heard the noise and saw it was obviously too late to take action.

what, do you want them to try and push the train back?

there is a difference between breaking up a fight and stopping a murder. its not like i dont understand the position. I just cant believe that in a fairly packed station not one person did anything to help or prevent it.

I don't get why you're getting thumbed down...You make perfect sen- oh wait, now I do

a lot of the people that were nearby didn't notice them fighting until they had practically fallen on the tracks and they could do much to stop the train.

Everyone's walking away because if the person gets run over, there's gonna be a ******** of blood
#35 to #33 - restfullwicked (04/01/2013) [-]
people started to leave before they even fell. three people were close enough to prevent it and none of them did a damn thing. everyone in the room made a choice.

No, youre obviously wrong. The three people I'm assuming youre talking about are the three people closest to the incident, 1.Baseball cap guy, 2. Book reader, and 3. Phone booth lady. If you look at what's happening, the guy with the cap look away before anything happens, he would have no way to know what would happen. When he turned back, they were right by the edge, and you can see that he didnt register what was happening until they fell into the tracks. At this time, the train was 3-5 feet away from the couple. There would be no way to save them if they train had kept moving. For the second person, the book reader, you can see his reaction as well and it is most likely from the sound of them falling, seeing as how that is when he looked in that direction. At this time the train had already past him, giving him no option of any real action. Now the third person, by the phone booth. This could be an argument I suppose. She does react before they fall but when they're really close to the edge. Also her reaction is of shock, present from the way her hand reacted and reached for her face, to cover it up. This obviously wasted some time, and after that, the couple already fell in. She is around 15-20 feet away from the edge of the platform, a distance that could not be covered in time.

By the time any of them noticed it was too late.

Then there were 2 options:

Stand there and watch without being able to do anything to help


run away, save yourself from the horrible sight and maybe getting splattered by potentially infected blood
also get help from someone who works there or call an ambulance etc

I guess they're only trying to spare themself of the view of those two getting crushed on the tracks. Self Protection, but still selfish.

as i said further down. its not that they dont all rush to help. its the fact that they all just leave. like "nope not my problem"
#7 to #2 - jubberoni (03/31/2013) [-]
I agree mate, but honestly if i saw someone go under a train, i wouldn't wanna see the aftermath. But we'd all love to imagine we'd help
#8 to #7 - restfullwicked (03/31/2013) [-]
not so much that they dont all rush to help. its more the fact the they all turn around like like "nope"
#9 to #8 - jubberoni (03/31/2013) [-]
Well what can i say? Humanity are a bunch o' cunts
#11 to #9 - restfullwicked (03/31/2013) [-]

#13 to #11 - jubberoni (03/31/2013) [-]
