A Polish man decided to run down a railway track, trying to beat an approaching train with his speed.
He started running faster and faster, as fast as he could,
but eventually he is caught by the train and finds himself in a hospital with many broken bones.
Treating his wounds, the doctor asks
“Stavroski, why didn’t you just run up the embankment to avoid the train?”
“You stupid idiot,” Stavroski says.
“If I can’t beat it on the flat ground, how will I beat it uphill?”
