Today, I opened up the USA Today online at lunch time. While scanning through the articles I saw THIS headline:
Teens at high risk in car surfing
BEFORE you click. READ that again. WHO isn't at risk? The headline almost implies that, I don't know, some adults aren't at risk. Or maybe lower risk? Point is, badly worded headline.
To save your brain from hurting, We will discuss the article here.
It is really, really simple:
RIDING ON THE OUTSIDE OF A 2000-3000 POUND MOVING VEHICLE CAN LEAD TO YOUR DISMEMBERMENT, GOING TO JAIL OR DEATH, KIDS.
These days, honestly? I'm feeling like if you think this is a FANTASTIC idea? Then you DESERVE the consequences. Seriously. This is natures way of removing SOME of the stupid from the gene pool. It has to be done some how these days.
I never car surfed. I never had the urge to car surf. And good grief, my parents never had to talk to me about car surfing. I had this magical thing called common sense and a concept of "the consequences of my actions."
Parents, BE parents to your children. Our jobs are not to be their friend. It is a hard and thankless job for many years. I would really rather not read shit like16yr olds getting killed because of amazing stupidity.
