Whew! I just freaked out a little because I almost lost the contents of that whole last post. I had other things going on while writing that post about the trip to the store, when I noticed that I could no longer see the app I was writing it in. I could the application running in my task manager, and the process was running, but when I tried to switch to it, all I got was a blank desktop. As a last resort before ending the process to start over, I clicked switch to, and hit CTRL+A then CTRL+C and opened notepad, and pasted the contents of my clipboard. Much to my delight, even thought I couldn’t see the app, apparently it was still there and let me select all my text and copy it so I could save it and use it to re-create my last post. Sigh…
I read the below story today, exceprpt from: www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2314990.html?menu=news.quirkies
Teen’s harrowing experience
An Austrian teenager was run over by a tractor twice – once when he fell off and again when his friend drove back to see where he was.
Hubert Hochstetter, 17, from the village of Kainisch, fell off the tractor as he and his 22-year-old friend Josef Mittringer were driving along the road.
He fell under the back wheels of the three-ton vehicle and had his ribs and arms broken.
But his pal Mittringer who could not see his friend lying behind his back wheels reversed to look where he was, and in doing so ran him over again, this time breaking his legs.
Mittringer panicked when he saw what had happened and drove off. But witnesses called an ambulance and the teenager was treated in hospital.
Doctors said that he will be in hospital for weeks but he’s expected to make a full recovery.
