THINK--ride inside the car
“Car surfing.” If you have to ask, you are above the age of idiocy.
This is when (mostly) teenage males cling to the outside of a moving car.
This would be because their brains are not fully formed and they think this is thrilling.
Surgeons at Loyola point out that this is an excellent way to make sure your brain never fully forms.
Since 1990, at least 99 people have died of this.
Or gotten hideous and painful road rash or lasting head injuries.
But of course, this is still shown in movies—making it look cool and edgy.
Mostly, it’s butt stupid. Ever heard of sudden stops—swerves, speed bumps? The car stops and you don’t?
Yeah—huge oopsies. Lifelong oopsies.
What a shame--your parents loved you so much.
