A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN


It's the latest rage.

Young hip-hopsters on the West Coast are into a new fad that involves a stunt in which a driver gets out of his car and dances around on the top of the moving vehicle.

At least two people have been killed "ghost riding" so far.

Thanks to numerous posted videos on YouTube of guys trying these antics, it's caught on nationwide with the younger set.

One video shows a young man leaping from the top of his truck right before it crashes into a utility pole. Check out ghost riding gone bad.

Seems this is some fatal attraction.

Of the dozens of "Ghost Riding the Whip" videos on You Tube, my favorite one is when some kid has his car stolen while he is dancing on his trunk and while his friend videotapes the entire thing.

The following link will show you that video:

Too funny, Pappy.

Besides the truck incident (which also is on this link), check out the guy getting run over by his own car. Link to Tom Green.

We did Chinese fire drills(politically incorrect to even say these days)at red lights but at least we weren't dumb enough to take the car out of park..this proves again why young(stupid)men have highest accident/insurance rates..you should have titled this blog "Dumb Luck"..

If you are dumb enough to risk killing yourself, that is your business. Some people need to be kept out of the gene pool, but this has the potential for injuring and killing others. The dancer doesn't have control of the vehicle. Some people don't feel alive unless they are risking their lives. Just stay away from the rest of us.

With all the people in the world who need help, how sad is it that this is all the kids can find to do?

The key to this insanity is "the West Coast". The West Coast is a breed apart. Anyone who wants to live among earthquakes, horrific fires, and the Governator running the show ... has got to be nuts. Dancing on a moving vehicle is quite consistent with that lifestyle.

There used to be something very similar to this activity. it was based on some stupid movie, of course. Kids would lay on the road and scream...something like that. Many kids who did this ended up injured/dead. And I think this too was a West Coast creation/activity.
Go figure.

All I ever tried to do was jump off the sofa and pretend to be Peter Pan-but then again-I had parents who taught me better things to occupy my time-like doing homework or chores

All I can think is dumb, dumb and more dumb. How dumb can one get? Well, this is it.
