CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE NERD KIND ... ON 4TH STREET


It was Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind yesterday at 4th and Adelaide as I stumbled on the scene of what looked like a major traffic accident. The trouble began when a Goofy Teenager started doing tricks on his skateboard amidst oncoming traffic. I watched in horror as a station wagon (pictured above) pulled out of nowhere and hit the teen dead-on. The poor kid went flying, landed on the hood of the station wagon and began screaming. I ran over to offer assistance and was starting to dial 911 when the kid started laughing. "I knew something like this was going to happen," he said, "None of this is real, we're just filming a movie." "Really?," I asked, "What are you making, Death Wish 3?" "It's an independent production," he replied. It must have been real independent: There wasn't any sign of a camera or crew.

Maybe it was a dash cam. That would have been scarey to witness.
