19 killed, 16 injured in Peru road crash

LIMA, July 10 - At least 19 people were killed and 16 others injured Wednesday when a bus they were travelling in fell off a cliff in the Peruvian Andes, said the police.

The tragedy occurred early Wednesday on a stretch of highway known as "Mal Paso" (bad passage) near the town of Colcabamba in the Tayacaja province.

The bus was carrying 40 to 45 passengers when it lost control and plunged 300 meters into the cliff, said the Highway Police.

The driver of the bus appeared to have been competing with another bus of the same company to see which vehicle could pass first through a blind curve along the stretch of road, it said.

The accident site is distant and remote, a fact that hinders efforts to rescue the survivors and retrieve bodies.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
