It was the world championship road race in Yorkshire. German Dario Gomez Becerra from Colombia had a catastrophic bike failure that left him on the side of the road. He expected to get picked up and...didn't. And the camera guy just followed him while the announcers talked about how sad it as. It's kinda hard to watch. You just want to give the guy a hug and say it's gonna be okay.

That said, such a casual reminder of your own mortality can seem a little off-putting, especially when spooky signs do too good a job.

Customer Demands a 500 MB plan Instead of Existing 16 GB Plan
