The guy on her right, held his hand up JUST ENOUGH to save himself.
I keep wondering how the next out of left field MRA boogeyman comment will look like. Today it's "a man reflexively shielded his face from an oncoming ball a second before realizing it was going somewhere else".
If you'll notice, the black woman behind her does the same thing in almost exact synchronization. Please tell of your thoughts on how that's typical of THOSE PEOPLE.
I recently saw two teenage girls walk into a blind guy because they were playing with their phones. One of them dropped her phone in the process and they both reacted with shock. Then, when it was clear they didn't hurt the phone, they walked on in relief, without even acknowledging the guy they bowled into.
Forget nuclear holocaust, global warming, the tipping point, famine, and epidemics. Fucking cellphones are humanity's extinction event.
Dude like teenagers do shit like that whether they got cellphones or not. I feel you though.
There's some people who have an asshole gene that kicks in during exercise. This gene secretes a chemical that makes their brain think that stopping exercise for half a second might make their heart rate go down which would be THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD. Your jogging guy had it and at least 90% of bicyclists have it which is why they never, as a culture, stop or slow down for lights and pedestrians.
Oh yeah, my oblivious asshole collision story.
I rode my bike through an intersection, green light no cars coming. Suddenly this girl on a bike appears out of nowhere from behind the parked car at the end of the intersection, the car she just emerged from behind because she was traveling in the bike lane THE WRONG WAY.
She doesn't see me. How could she? she just emerged from a total blindspot and couldn't see traffic that would be coming head on given she was going THE WRONG WAY.
She crashes into me. I'm fine. She jolts forward and almost takes a spill.
First thing out of her mouth? "Asshole!"
She takes off, continuing to travel the bike lane THE WRONG WAY until she clears the intersection, picks up speed, and switches to riding the sidewalk THE WRONG WAY.
As a bicyclist, my most hated enemy is other bicyclists.
Ugh.. I'm with you there. It might come as a complete shock but bike culture is big in Portland Oregon and it pisses me off as a bicyclist who likes to ride a bike, as Superintendent Chalmers would say, from point A to point B and on weekends point C. My work requires me to drive to one specific place and back every day so I see both sides of the coin.. drivers suck and so do a majority of bicyclists. The worst are this group of thrill seekers who call themselves "ninjas" or "shadows" something like that, who wear entirely back (including black facemasks or bandanas) and bomb down busy streets the wrong way with no lights on black bikes at around bar-time with no helmets. They're obviously not amateurs, but what the fuck. They hit a car, and there's even a trace amount of alcohol on the driver, assuming they might have had an after work drink, and it's vehicular manslaughter under the influence. And cops DO enforce lights and helmets on bikes but it's nearly impossible at 3 in the morning especially when you can't be seen. People like that make me feel better about the time I got stopped by a cop for riding my bike without lights 3 blocks to the store as the sun was going down.
A cyclist's 2nd favorite hobby is complaining about drivers, but I've been clipped by about 1,000 bikes while just walking around the city.
Anyway this is the perfect video.

Heh, best use of the 'back and to the left' tag for awhile.
I think this is actually more violent than the Zapruder film. This is just brutal. Damn. That poor woman's face just gets DESTROYED, you can see the shockwaves in her hair. You can see her makeup flying off her face as dust.

Well, it is a Hornets game so you can't blame them for not paying attention.
You can take my honest word for it: she'll teach you more than you can know.

I'd like to point out that the woman on the phone doesn't look up until well after the fact.
Frankly I find it well deserved for looking at your phone when you have court side seats. Not just for common sense reasons, but also for wasting the incredible privileged you have. Tons of people would love to get seats that good and they'd be glued to the game.
