    Default Videotaped Stupidity or Jackass Stunt? Darwin a work.

    Just when you think the motoring public can't possibly get any stupid, someone has to go an push the envelope.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    I sure as hell hope that hurt. What an F'ing Moron!

    That kind of public endangerment goes waaaay beyond revoking a DL!

    In a frigging residential neighbourhood to boot! If that kid would've done that near my family, I would've beaten that idiot within an inch of his life.

    On a stupidity scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being, like, New Coke, this idiot rates about a 15 Notice he takes out a hydrant at the end.....

    I'm betting that it was a stolen vehicle.

    Oh, I didn't think anyone was taping me doing that!!!

    Yeah, I think this provides some kind of job security for us, as this guy looked old enough to have kids! That's just stupidity multiplying. Oh well!

    I needed a chuckle after watching that boneheaded stunt, and that's a good one, I have to remember it for the future?

    Lesson from Professor Wendt:

    During your interview of "witnesses" to fires, look for kids w/video cameras. Kids love to tape the stupid *** crap that they do. If the kids are suspects, take the camera, but do NOT play the tape. You must have a search warrant for the tape to view it-mostly because of the sound.

    Excellent point, Professor!

    I'll vouch for that.

    There was no LOGICAL reasoning behind bringing a camcorder to the party the night before our college graduation....... but there it was........

    Man; good thing there wasn't anyone standing in that yard when the hydrant flew across it. These guys might be up for a few more serious charges. What a bunch of idiots.

    Its just to bad the dumba** jumped off the truck before it hit the pole. I think he would have made a nice addition to the pole its self. A poster child for idiots all over the world.

    A beauty of a Chevy 4x4 bits the dust, what a waste.

    I wonder if they were filming one of those extream videos, "Crusty Deamons of Dirt", "Street Madness" or some such thing. Those are pretty entertaining.

    But, if this is a home video, not performed on a closed street, just for shizat and giggles, then this kid need a good beating with the singapore cane.

    Yeah, he would have been a nice 'poster child' , his brains would be 'posted' all over the pole.

    He should try out for "Worlds Stupidest Criminals" he'd probably be a hit, all he'd have to do is steal something and then try that stunt to get away from the cops. That kind of stuff never happens around here.
