Stupidity Always Gets People Inches from Serious Injury – Video

Watching short videos like the one after the jump has always made me wonder how many similar stunts are performed around the world each year. Hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, who could tell? Many of them take place without a camera recording the stunt, and this is a real pity because we’re deprived from a wider assortment of dumb deeds.

Personally I am glad to see such footage constantly surfacing on the internet, because it will serve as a wonderful educational basis for my son. When he will grow enough to understand how things roll, and will obviously start thinking about doing silly stuff, I plan to start showing him how things can go wrong and why.

In a way, this could work just like the Science of Stupid documentaries Richard Hammond seems to have so much fun presenting. Yes, there is a huge educational power in the stupid things people do at any level, from daily stuff in the house to idiotic ideas which pop up outside.

The scooter-spinner trick is really old but exerts a magical attraction to youngsters. Should they know a dab of physics, they could avoid putting themselves in danger, but then they’d maybe not be doing this, right? Anyway, it’s glorious to see that this stunt ended without the severe, life-threatening cranial injuries which could have been recorded as the cause of death should the heads of the two kids have collided at such a high speed.

Time and again, are people not watching similar videos on the internet? Aren’t they aware of how bad things can go? Or is everyone in the “won’t/ can’t happen to me” movement? Enjoy!
