Ah, this is an ancient Indian trick. For thousands of years, the native people of the great planes and eastern woodlands would spend hours safely roaming the abandoned tunnels and trestles that criss-crossed what is now the continental United States. That all ended when the white man came and built locomotives that went straight through the Indian's tunnels and over their bridges. Fortunately they managed to adapt and learned this valuable skill to avoid the incursion onto their land. They then passed on their wisdom to us so that we too can avoid the trains that now infest once safe structures.

I read about that.
In a book.

There's a statue in Seoul of a boy putting his head on a train track while his sister plays on it nearby. It caused complaints because idiots thought he was doing this as a form of suicide (first photo in this article).
