- Doctor! Doctor! I keep seeing double1!

Native American hears
A family was visiting an Indian reservation3 when they happened upon4 an old tribesman5 laying face down in the middle of the road with his ear pressed firmly against the blacktop6.
The father of the family asked the old tribesman what he was doing.
The tribesman began to speak, "Woman, late thirties, three kids, one barking dog in late model four-door station wagon7, traveling at 65 mph8."
"That's amazing!" exclaimed the father.
"You can tell all of that by just listening to the ground?"
"No," said the old tribesman. "They just ran over9 me five minutes ago!"
