It seems like every year we see videos posted of icicles falling from television station transmission towers, crashing into vehicles in the parking lot. This one from WJTV News Channel 12, in Jackson, Mississippi, stands out because it shows people actually running toward their cars while the icicles are falling from a 491-meter high tower. They apparently are so concerned about damage to their vehicles that they discount the potential for mortal harm if one of those gigantic icicles happened to hit them. You can hear the people laughing as they run into harm's way. One day we'll see one of them in the annual list of Darwin Award winners. Sad, but true.
This collection of video and a few audio files represents files that have been featured on the RF Cafe homepage. Every week or so a new file is added that should be of interest to RF Cafe visitors.
