Let's see, the woman who fell was a competitor of the woman at the wheel. I think what we all can infer from this that women can't drive.

Florida and Connecticut finally collaborate to create the ultimate retard tag..... it'll be simply called "Still Classy"

Hopefully the people who get her organs don't get her stupidity with it.

That was a small OOPS compared to this...

Boy, that poor 29 yr old woman must feel so guilty. So ashamed.

I think I know what will help her.

FTFA:

Hanrahan was flown by Trauma Hawk to the Delray Medical Center, where she was treated for severe head injuries. At 1:36 a.m. Monday, she was placed on life support to preserve her organs for donation.

[...]

Hanrahan, an insurance company executive, owns horses and rides competitively, according to records.


I am no human style guide, but I fear this is an inappropriate choice of verb tense.

Horseplay on a golf cart is never acceptable.

Ok lemme get this straight ... she pulls a stunt that most southerners would get up and laugh about and ends up in the hospital ...

Ok now maybe I don't get this part ... FTFA ...
"Woman clings to life after fall from golf cart in Wellington"

But later in the article:
"At 1:36 a.m. Monday, she was placed on life support to preserve her organs for donation."

Doesn't that technically make her D-E-A-D?

Golfplay on a horse cart is also problematic.

Some dumbass from Connecticut does something dumb in Florida? Why yes, this is the right state to do stuff like that!

I wouldn't call that clinging to life as much as I would call it being temporarily glued to life.

Pretty much. What a way to go, huh.

Would that be something similar to polo?

/Another example of the many Florida threads that resulted from actions of someone not from Florida.

I do that EVERY YEAR. Should I not do that?

I attempted to throw myself under a moving golf cart after having to watch Eli win MVP, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Hope she's covered.

I'm so confused. I thought that the Florida tag always trumps all others.

Does the fact that she was from Connecticut but it happened in Florida create some kind of tag vortex of retardation that does not have a clear cut winner?

Considering how shiat-faced I was on Sunday, I'm surprised that I didn't pull a stunt like that.

"Bad news. Your little car's gonna drown. And you're gonna die, wearing that stupid hat. How does it feel?"

Why was there a windshield on a golf cart?

Karma?

More of a windscreen, you put it up on rain days. I've done a lot of stupid things on golf carts including parking on a buddies foot. No deaths yet.

I was driving a golf cart with four people on it, starting going down a huge hill and realized we had no brakes. Made it around a turn, started to slow down and lost control - everyone bailed out except for one girl, who was thrown off of it and hit her head and ended up going to the emergency room. The doctor asks, "what happened," we answer "golf cart accident." His look was priceless, a freezing "don't bullshiat me" glare. Nobody turned into a vegetable, fortunately.
