Mystery Photo:
We'd like to put a credit on this photo and find out the location. Please let us know.

That photo of mountains was taken from the climber's entrance/exit of the Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix, France.

Anybody can stand in that spot and see this view by riding the cable car up. You'll never forget it! (Thanks, David)

re: Police Oops -
This reminds me of the only traffic accident I saw while in Rome, Italy for an entire summer.

It stuck with me because if you've every witness the traffic in Rome, it seems totally chaotic, yet I almost went throughout the entire summer walking the roman streets without witnessing a single crash.

The one wreck I did see though was a police officer rear-ended a guy driving a Vespa, and even that accident wasn't that serious. The Vespa owner walked away from the collision just fine. I didn't get to see what happened to his moped though.
