HoLy Sheet

This kid is somehow still alive

I think no one under the age of 25 should be allowed to drive anything faster than a lawn mower.

Fellure said they are still investigating the crash trying to determine the driver’s speed and why he was passing cars on the berm.

I’m thinking the answer to that second question is something like “because he is a stupid asshole” but maybe that’s just me.

Oh my god. That crash is insane.

    I agree with the stupid asshole assessment. A lot of people overdrive their abilities, especially in regards to reaction time.

    They don’t know, or care, about the situation they are creating. And they are arrogant enough to believe that they are in control, which is utter nonsense at high speeds.

    Dad, a fighter pilot during and immediately after WWII, drilled this into my and my brothers (and it *mostly* took): The faster you drive, the less reaction time you have. At 100 MPH, in a standard car, you mostly have no control…..you have the illusion of control.

    At a guess, this asshole was screaming down the road, oblivious to the dangers he placed in others, and exulting in his “skills”. Then he saw the police car, said “Oh, s**t!”, and panicked. Probably twitched the wheel, lost control, and zipped onto median. The results are in the tape.

    And, no, I don’t count myself as an expert. But I was interviewed as a jury member in a vehicular manslaughter case. This equally young and stupid asshole has washed his car, and decided to dry it off…..by driving 90 MPH down a local highway. He ended up in a crash that killed another man.

    I was excluded from the jury because of my engineering background. I never mentioned my father; that would have gotten me tossed even faster. The guy walked.

    This particular stupid asshole is lucky, after a crash like that. But I’ll bet he’ll never own up to his actions.

    PS: Excuse the rant. I’m a trifle touchy about this sort of crap.

    Well, good. I’m glad the little asshat went skyward and splat all by his loneself. It so seldom works out that way. Mostly they manage to walk away unscathed when leaving the carnage of wrecked lives behind them and weeping in court about how sorry they are.

    I’ve done stupid things in cars before, but nothing as stupid as that.

    Darwin Award?

    No, he survived, Gary. Just a runner up.

    But I suspect that he’ll keep on trying for the top prize, though…..
