Teen killed by his own stupidity...
Well, by his own stupidity - with an assist from a roller coaster. Dipshits like this are why we live in a nanny state and can't have nice things.

I do have sympathy for his family and friends, they just lost a loved one and that's horrible. Been there, done that a number of times and it is always a big ball of suck. I also have sympathy for anyone on the ride and any witnesses who will now have a nice traumatic experience to live with. I also have sympathy for the park for the hassle and bad publicity, the rescue workers who had to clean up the mess, and just about anyone else involved.

I do not, however, have sympathy for the jackass who got himself killed. He gets a golf clap and a 'Bravo! Well done!', and hopefully consideration for a Darwin Award.

Now, the next thing will be to watch and see if his family are assholes or not. If they sue the park, they're assholes. And they lose my sympathy.

If they sue, they'll lose. There is no excuse for his behavior.

You don't need an excuse for your behavior to win a lawsuit in this country.

Its tough to win anything when fighting a large corporation. In fact, most wrongful deaths are settled out of court, even when they are valid.

This year they came through with a ride called The Mixer.

The man said, "Keep your head, and arms, inside the Mixer at all times."

But Bill Jr, he was a DAAAREDEVIL, just like his old man.

He was leaning out saying "Hey everybody, Look at me! Look at me!"

Now Stuart, do you think a kid like that is going to know what the queers are doing to the soil??

Look at the soil around Des Moines, Stuart.
You can't build on it; you can't grow anything in it. The government says it's due to poor farming. But I know what's really going on, Stuart. I know it's the queers. They're in it with the aliens. They're building landing strips for gay Martians, I swear to God.
