I’m a guy who likes to keep things real, so I really enjoyed hearing the story of a courageous 66-year old fellow named Lai Jiansheng, who gave a little ‘push’ to get traffic moving on a backed up Chinese highway (here). Apparently, some dude named Chen Fuchao was standing on a street bridge, threatening to kill himself; this scene had caused a five-hour traffic backup, as police attempted to coax Fuchao down from the bridge. Enter Jiansheng, a man who wanted to get traffic going. Jiansheng did what anyone would do in a situation like this: he walked up to Funchao, shook his hand, then pushed him off the bridge.
