Out of the Blue

There are thunderstorms possible in this area every day for the foreseeable future according to the weather forecast. Even if I was to manage to overcome my aversion to grilling in the rain, I have no desire to become that guy everyone talks about who was struck by lightning, so this is really going to hinder the festivities in Manstovia for the time being, which is not making me happy.

That Corvette story is both awful and absurd, how the hell can you die inside a car that is just "locked" ? Sounds more like suicide.

Also the people trying to get him out don't break a window and rather let him die? WTF?

I doubt suicide, it just sounds like an unfortunate chain of stupidity. There is some kind of gawker effect that occurs with things like this, and common sense just goes out the window. Not only will people fail to do simple things to help, but they will prevent help by getting in the way.

If the manual release is the same as what I've seen in a video it is partially hidden; so in a panicky confused state the man may not have seen it. Dealerships should be required to thoroughly demonstrate such things upon sale of the car, it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes, and could potentially save a life.
