How many times are we going to have to go over this, Planet Earth? No matter how fast or drunk you may think you are, you are not going to beat a train when the gates are down. Never. Ever. So stop trying it. Especially you, guy in Rájec-Jestřebí, Czech Republic.

He's lucky he escaped with his life, and seemingly without serious injury, but he does lose a shoe when the train just narrowly clips his heel. And if you forgot high school physics, trains have a lot of force behind them when they're moving, and that shoe is probably somewhere in outer space by now, with the way it was moving.

The man will face a fine of up to 2,500 koruna (or about $126), according to the AP.

Oh, and he'll probably want a new shoe.
