COOPER CITY, FL — A Florida woman’s Tuesday morning commute took an unusual turn when she happened to spot a hitchhiking spider perched atop a web above her head. When that spider decided to scale down its silk and land on her leg, things took a dangerous turn. Full Story ⤳
Mark Baumer, an activist who was walking barefoot across the U.S. to raise awareness about climate change, was killed in Florida by an SUV driver who officials say veered off the road.
The Washington Post reports Baumer, 33, was a poet and author who started his barefoot journey in October. He walked all the way to Ohio before the freezing temperatures forced him to take a bus down to a warmer Florida and start his trek from there.
“Climate change is humanity’s greatest threat,” Baumer wrote in a post raising money through his journey. “Every day corporations continue to profit from earth’s destruction. I decided [to] cross America barefoot to see if I could save earth. I know this is a lofty goal, but I hope through my walk I can raise awareness about climate change.” Full Story ⤳
First of all, this is the most laughable form of public transit to date. I’d rather ride a donkey to work. They’re closed on weekends and holidays, have an extremely limited schedule, slow as fuck, overpriced, and most annoyingly of all: there is nowhere to fucking go once you get off the train stops! No taxis, no reliable buses, no rental bikes… SunRail a.k.a. SunFail is a complete fucking waste of tax dollars. As if that wasn’t enough, they want to spend more money to EXTEND the route to the boondocks and COMPLETELY BYPASS THE AIRPORT. What in the goddamn fuck Florida?
Anways, back to the story. This happened on Orange Avenue near Holt Avenue in Winter Park. Basically some Florida fuck PARKED his DUMP TRUCK on the TRAIN TRACKS (nobody really knows why or has asked), and when shithead realized SunFail was coming, he quickly (but not quickly enough) tried to move it out of the way. 8 people were injured and the train was stopped for a couple hours. Good fucking job Florida Man.
