Do you really have to wonder why people try to run you over with diggers?
To be honest, no. Maybe I should do something about my inter-personal skills? 
it depends on what you want to die from I guess: people or diggers. For instance, I'm finding a perverse pleasure in scaring Collector - the first person who's more afraid of me than I am of other poeple :-D
(I like you, if it matters.)

I wouldn't worry too much, if they wanted to really run you over you'd think they would use something faster than a digger. Although from a disposing of the body aspect a digger is very practical.

Anyway, as you've evidently survived 'death by digger' can we add you to the work crew for Saturday? 10:00 am sarp, bacon sandwiches provided.

He attacked me in a very confined space between 2 stone walls. Will you pay me danger money? COD, what?

Diggers are dangerous but tele-porters are fatal

It was not the digger but the unpredictable (no joke) swivelly arm. Those with background in Lagrangian mechanics get the idea.

No problem.
Have you bought a digger for Julian yet?

Julian so far has a poodle and a spotted Knabstrupper pony is on the spring shopping list.
He's been riding on a friend's pony since he was 10 months old in a victorian wicker baby saddle.

hopefully somewhere will offer asylum to the girl in Thailand. She seems to be a genuine refugee who would be killed for apostasy if she returned to Saudi.

The woman in Tennessee seems to have been freed by the Kardashians

Why does Skype under Windows need 5 processes to run?

I'm obviously very happy for her, but don't you think Canada is a bit duplicitous given they are a part of the Saudi Arabia-led coalition bombing Yemeni people and starving the whole nation to death. It sends a clear message of approval for SA's ways.
