What idiots look like

As you can see from the hand reaching in for an additional beer, a total of three idiots all thought this was a good idea.

And a finely engineered product they've produced. Read about them next year as a Darwin award triple play winner.

Good one Bunny. All I can say is the DWs must have been out for the day leaving these guys unsupervised. Here's another view of classic idiots courtesy of Monty Pyton...

snowmobile skipping | Science Buzz

According to the press accounts, many snowmobile drivers like to “skip” their machines over open water. It got me wondering how this actually works.

I want to see someone on a jet ski cross a couple of miles of snow with a skier on the back thats picking his teeth with a chefs knife.

That'd be impressive.

This unfortunately is something people like to try around here and just about every winter someone dies.

I've changed my mind. I want to see someone on a jet ski cross a couple of miles of snow with a horse on the back.

BTW, several states have now passed laws prohibiting snowmobiles from crossing water.

No worries, I assume that is 100% distilled, de-ionized water they used to fill the pool.

I can't locate it, but a year or two ago a young man died when he was riding on an inner tube being towed behind a truck driven by a friend. I don't recall if he hit a tree or something else.

I forwarded this to friend of mine which is a fire fighter.

His reply.

"That's what I call job security".
