Numanoid gets flown out to the crosswalk outside Hall H where a fat man and a researcher are waiting for him. The fat guy pulls up a computer.

Fat guy: So here we have our simulation. The fan was walking this way, and the car was going that way. As you can see there was NO WAY for the car to stop once she got to this point here. And at this point, she trips. Sayonara.

Numanoid: Thank you for that...graphic depiction asshole.

Researcher: Are you ready to go back to the crosswalk?

Numanoid: It's been seven hours.

Researcher: It's okay, try to remember anything, anything at all.

Numanoid: Twilight was to have been the biggest event of the year for me. The line contained all of the most hardcore fans. The lawn chairs were all brand new...they still smelled of the plastic wrapping they came in. The bottles of water were still cool to the touch. The Twilight line was considered to be...the queue of dreams. And it was. It really was.

Stick her in the ground and she'll be back in a day or so.

1. Crossing Harbor is like trying to jay walk on the freeway.

2. Is comicon a little early this year? Isn't it usually around the 23rd?

Completely shocked that everyone in that picture is overweight.

Maybe she was hoping someone would jump in front of her and punch the car to stop it right before it hit her.

Spoiler:
Yes, someone made me suffer through the first one

Thank God for Otter where you don't have to worry about poking fun at a recently flattened 53 year old Twighlight Fan.

Well, in hindsight it probably wasn't a good idea to jaywalk/run across a very busy street in California where the speed limit is usually the posted limit squared.

Actually my post wasn't sarcastic. I think this is just a fresh Darwin Award winner.

Where's Robert Pattinson's car stopping ability when you need it?

If he saved that hideous Kristen Stewart, I'm sure he save a water buffalo or two.

Sounds like Darwin stepped in.
I don't think anybody in that picture is an avid runner...

there is a picture of her with Edward in the above link.

Her name was Gisela Gagliardi, of Kingston, N.Y. She flew all the way from NY to see edward.

Poor thing, named Gisela. It was probably suicide.

I think there are differences in being a twi-tard, a nerd or a geek. The twi-tards were already trying to line up on Monday to get into the first programming slot in Hall H on Thursday. Guess what that live panel was to be?

I thought the same thing. She will forever more be labeled "that Twilight fan."

It could have been Grizzabella, like in "Cats."

Let's at least hope that her final accomplishment was royally fucking up someone's front end alignment.

Hey! They aren't Cat Chicks. They are more than likely Dog Chicks. Because dogs give unconditional attention.
