    Done much the same when I was a kid, bus home from town had to slow down to round a corner near to where I lived, I had watched adults jump of the bus numerous times in the past and decided to give it a go one day, what I did not realise was these adults were prepared to run at approx the same speed as the bus once they hit the ground, well that’s what I did “hit the ground”, I just jumped off expecting to stand where I landed, so wrong, suspect I resembled something along the lines of Barnes Wallis’s Bouncing Bomb as I stoated along the ground prior to coming to a stop.

    Recall reading report below about the new bus, all that technology, and it goes wrong due to one big nut behind the wheel...
