Dang lucky that just didn't snap his leg in two.

The future of America ladies and gents, kinda scary.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

You can't fix stupid.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I don't think he was working on it, I think he was trying to see if he was strong enough to stop the head the headstock when the power was turned on. I think there may be a teacher somewhere that was a little lax on teaching safety to these kids.

Now I know how BO got into office. They let people like that guy vote.

You can't fix stupid, but hopefully, stupid will remove itself from the gene pool.
