If you go on youtube and type in "fail videos" you will be treated to thousands of funny videos featuring young people doing stupid and dangerous things. Tomorrow at lunch try it and it will get you laughing.

Most of the clowns are young men, a few young women but add in a drop of booze and watch out.

Multiple videos is hardly a sample size of one unless you think the videos are fake.





I think that the voting age should be raised to 21 as well as the ability to purchase a gun but for some reason the Democrats mostly want to lower the age of voting to 16?

What I don't understand is that when the Left is defending a young criminal they tell us that a persons brain is not fully developed until the age of 25-26 so they might not completely understand the ramifications of the crime they committed BUT they WILL understand enough to make a responsible and educated vote???

I'm a Dem and I don't want to lower it. Are you speaking for all other Dems?

I've watched plenty of fail videos, and very very very few made me laugh. Mostly it makes me shake my head and roll my eyes.

According to Fox News perhaps? I'm a democrat and I've never heard this. I definitely wouldn't be in favor.

10 lashes with a cane. Good hard ones so she doesn't sit for a week.

No kidding. What the heck are journalists doing asking these questions of a 16 year old?

I think I must have missed something. Which questions did you find too harsh and/or personal for a 16-year-old?

I'm sure her friend thought she was being supportive by giving her an extra push to do something that she assumed she WANTED to do, but was too afraid to. She wanted to show her that she really could do it and didn't want her to regret not taking the jump. Unfortunately, it just didn't turn out so well.
