nice! I once was at a park playing some baseball and a volkswagon beetle was driving by when its wheel snapped all the studds off and the wheel went bouncing into my friends yard and just as he open his rod iron screen door, the wheel hit it and slammed it shut and broke his wrist.

It was pretty unbelieveable.

Talking

Beaury is fleeting, stupid is forever.

Glad no one died.

On the other hand, the gene pool might have improved a bit.

Another case where the parents should be shot......

Tell me who thinks...

VIPER + TEEN BOY = GOOD IDEA ????

I am just happy nobody was injured. Not the case with a similar situation with a Viper and a teenager in my hometown...

I have never regretted the vasectomy! Things like this reassure me. I believe not having children is the lesser evil than killing them for smashing up my car. It is a Utilitarianism thing.

Imagine the phone call to their father in Russian:

"Hi dad! Sorry I got some bad news, but you know that American Dream Car you always wanted and finally bought.......well....."

I liberal American father might answer with "it is ok son, as long as you are not hurt".

Not I think the Russian father might look more like this:

Probably not a good think to lump all kids into one pile...but I am sure 99% of us have done stupid stuff in cars and got away with it, hence no pictures. I am glad I did mine in a 100 hp Honda when I was 16 and not a 500 hp sports car....just my opinion.

If I listed all the bad things I did driving from 16 to 21 it would be a long, long list. I am just very lucky no one ever got killed which I cannot say for at least one of the cars after a night of and a morning of .

And that is exactly why I think children under 25 should not be allowed to drive on the public streets without an adult in the car! I believe from 16 to 19 all children should have an adult in the car plus only be allowed to drive during the day. From 20-25 we should gradually remove the restrictions if they continue to take yearly driving courses and tests. Zero alcohol should be strictly enforced. All cars should have satellite tracking chips so the parents can know exactly where Jr is and how fast he is driving. The cars should also have governors so they cannot exceed 35 mph. Cell phones should be 100% banned. No smoking while driving. In the future we can have two-way video monitoring as well. And of course none of that rock and roll devil music while driving.
