This made me cringe, so I felt like sharing it. BTW I didn’t make this video.

I saw something as equally stupid but not quite as dangerous. The ice on the roads is melting here, there are deep ruts and water everywhere. If you try to turn out of the ruts it may stop your car or if you have enough momentum you can hop out of the rut.

Last night I watched a fellow sitting at the corner of our bay spinning his wheels, reving his engine and basically displaying the behaviour of a very inexperienced or stupid stuck driver. He had his wheels cranked hard right effectively wedging his vehicle in. After watching him use his cell phone presumeably to phone a tow truck, I wandered out there. Here leaned out of his door (in his defense on this front he was in a huge puddle, and stated “I’m never gonna get out of here” . I told him to straighten his wheels and drive out…moments later he was on his way. I hope he cancelled the tow truck LOL!

I don’t know if there are enough explitives in the all the languages of the world to describe that kid. All I know is that I would feel like kicking that kids ass as soon as I could get to my feet. That kind of stupity angers me in the worse way. At first I thought the one kid was going to leave the key in the chuck, that would be equally as bad.

I wonder what the liability is for the person who turned on the power?

Having worked with engine lathes, this hurts on so many levels. This is why many schools are taking shop out of the schools.

It is obvious that the kid has no idea of what this equipment is capable. He has an idea now. If he didn’t loose his foot he is seriously blessed.
