That's from the movie Phantasm -- you should see what happens when it catches somebody.

Phantasm! I would recognize that anywhere.
Those are fun.
There are been so many people that have fallen into things and water fountains because they were on their phones.

It's an unforgettable film if you've seen it.

That woman was lucky she only fell into a fountain or whatever that was. You see so many people walking around staring at smartphones and ignoring their surroundings, I'm amazed they aren't constantly walking in front of speeding cars or falling down stairways.

That suit of armor—yikes!

The forklift disaster reminds me of an incident from a couple years ago. My husband was looking out his home office window when he noticed a large window air conditioner fall from the neighbor's second-floor window onto their front porch. It looked brand new with plastic still encasing the power cord. We never saw it again and the window remained unadorned by any sort of cooling apparatus. :-)

Yes, the armor picture is horrific for what it implies rather than what it shows. War is always hideous.

People need to learn more respect for gravity. Improperly secured heavy things are a menace. Using a forklift to lift another forklift is a new one to me, though. They would have done better to just carry the thing upstairs.

Fun selection of images! The "free hugs from Satan" image had me laughing out loud. I know a few people that would be freaked out by that.

I found that Satan image on a right-wing blog -- and people were indeed freaking out over it :-)
