Just thought I'd see some of the things people have been blamed for. What made me think of this was the other day I was at a drivers course for my emergency vehicle operators course when I was asked to take some pictures of the trucks going through some of the turns. So I agreed (as I had already passed my course) and quickly looked at the camera (which looked like a super old P&S, in fact I was convinced a Iphone took better quality pictures) so I made the best of what I had prefocused and work on my compisition for when the truck came running by i'd be set for the .8 fps rate.

well this guy changed seats and started driving and came crashing through the course, I was about 5 ft away from the cones and he blasted around the corner and blew through a part of the course he wasn't suppose to. He quickly was told to stop and came out of the truck yelling about how I was too close to the course and that I shouldn't be near the track and what I was doing there any ways. So I quickly replied back that I was asked to get pictures and thats what photographers do to get the shots I just didn't count on someone that didn't know how to drive to go crashing through the course. I pointed out that I wouldn't have to worry about it if he knew how to drive and that he's the one that screwed up the course not me taking pictures of you driving the course. the instructor told him that he was in the wrong and that he shouldn't have mest up the course the way he did.

Sounds like the reason most "fail" movies on utube exist - it's the fault of a camera being there.

"Mr. Jacka$$...how did you manage to get an entire bowling ball lodged in your rectum?"
"It's 'cause my friend had a camera and said I'd never make it fit..."
"The camera?"
"No!! Don't be stupid...I meant the bowling ball! And now it's his fault it's in there!!"


"Hell is an eternity of getting up at 4am to nothing but decaf coffee..."
A good friend will help you move.

An old friend more than likely will pass on either because of a bad back.

There is a documented phenomenon called "Camera Stupid" and it's something we have to guard against constantly in aviation photography.

Even someone in a simple Cessna 172 has been known to say "Hey, watch this!" when there are cameras around.

It will kill people...

Yeah I just hate that situation out come that could have happened. I was glad I was at least paying attention and was alert because it could have ended badly.

It's a good thing he failed the course then. I'd hate to have to wait for the police to clear the roads of vehicular and pedestrian traffic before he could go on his emergency run.

That is just a rage-filled nearly crazy person. If he had not flipped about you, he would have flipped about something else.

I think of people like that as the Tasmainian Devil. Avoid.

Been there done that. Back in my car days, there was an very popular underground street racing company filming my friends and I...well needless to say I totaled my car that night. Lesson learned.
