I was heading to work a few days ago when I spotted a family of three tourists attempting to cross a busy street. They were watching the flow of cars and they ran across the street when they saw a break in traffic. They were holding hands for some stupid reason. I think holding hands while running across is more than a slight hindrance; I think it’s downright dangerous. It slows you down, it makes you less agile, and it makes you a bigger target. If one of them tripped, he would have dragged the other ones down with him. If one of them got hit by a car, he would have taken the other ones with him. If you want to die by being stupid, that’s awesome and I totally support you, but try not to kill anyone else.
