He was not suggesting?!

I have had people sitting on the road outside my house around midnight. I
think one girl was trying to get a lift perhaps? But I'm not quite sure
what type. You've no idea the sorts of dances the dogs and cats do around
here after impact. One driver went to help one whose back legs had
frozen, but ass he approached they came back to life and he got badly bitten.
I took one girl by the arm and gently led her off the road. She agreed to
have a taxi but was gone after I rang. She wasn't swaying like a drunk,
but rather light to the touch.

Do you think natural selection will remove them? We don't find so many
dead birds on the road as we did after cars took over from horses.

I understand suicide has dropped in Japan. But New Zealand is nearly
highest in the world for youth suicide - 25% of youth death since drugs
and consequent unemployment have come in here.
