My parents would always make me walk when I missed the bus. Why didn't I ever think of this?
2002-01-18 12:31:26 AM  
I wonder if I stole a car to get to work they would praise me too
2002-01-18 12:32:16 AM  
Wait till she's a teenager...
2002-01-18 12:32:22 AM  
Granted she could have been killed or killed someone, but you gotta give her credit. She's driven. Or not in this case.
2002-01-18 12:32:25 AM  
This girl is the coolest.
2002-01-18 12:32:52 AM  
"A lot of kids would have decided to stay home and watch cartoons all day, so we have to give her credit for that."

Good point, which means only one thing about the girl...

2002-01-18 12:34:35 AM  
Her parents beat her. Why else would she feel so pressured into going to school.
2002-01-18 12:35:39 AM  
If the jeep had a manual transmission, then I'd be really impressed. As is, I'd feel safer with her behind the wheel than many of those idiots who get behind the wheel on my way to work.
2002-01-18 12:37:05 AM  
Girls 1 through 8 made the bus successfully.

At least she learned at 9 that she can't drive. Most women go their whole lives without finding out.

ducks from imminent onslaught.
2002-01-18 12:38:05 AM  
Oh my god, she injured a Jeep!
2002-01-18 12:39:23 AM  
If she's crashing into cars now, imagine what it will be like when she's changing CDs, putting on mascara, and talking on the cell phone when she's trying to drive.

When will we finally realize that we need to put women back in the kitchen where they belong and keep them away from motor vehicles.

Grivas, were faster on the draw
2002-01-18 12:43:21 AM  
Female Drivers.
2002-01-18 12:44:27 AM  
Wow, Grivas, I nearly pissed myself. No onslaught here.
2002-01-18 12:46:06 AM  
If at first you don't succeed: try, try again.
2002-01-18 12:46:25 AM  
How long before the owners of the parked cars sue her parents and her uncle for this, because they'll say that the keys shouldn't be accessible to her.
2002-01-18 12:50:06 AM  
Least it wouldn't be as stupid as the parents suing the key manufacturers...for something...can't...think...of...joke...too...late...too.. many...dots...
2002-01-18 12:50:48 AM  
Hmmm... Girl drives car illegally... Crashes into cars, causing damage (twice no doubt)... Could have caused worse accidents... Could have killed one or more people (who, I would like to point out, were obeying the law)... And we give her a pat on the back for trying to get to school?

Is there something wrong with our reward system?

[seriously]: It is good that no one was hurt. But this girl needs to learn that there are things she is just not allowed to do.
2002-01-18 12:55:04 AM  
I'm sure she got a stern talking to, but she's only nine. You can't really expect her to fully understand the difference between right and wrong. And it's not like she stole the jeep to get to her crack dealer.
2002-01-18 01:01:13 AM  
Wow, I think its incredibly awesome that she was able to make it a whole two blocks. And that she knew to put the car in reverse when she hit that first car. And Freedie2, stop being such a cranky old bastard. Shes 9 years old for crying out loud, so stop with your "what if's".
2002-01-18 01:01:14 AM  
Why was Helen Keller a bad driver?

She was a woman.
2002-01-18 01:02:20 AM  
Freedie2 -->> Freddie2
2002-01-18 01:03:36 AM  
Not_Enginerd thats some funny stuff.
2002-01-18 01:06:48 AM  
Thank you, I try.
2002-01-18 01:08:53 AM  
I love staying home an watch cartoons...
2002-01-18 01:09:48 AM  
Was that Lisa Simpson??

2002-01-18 01:14:06 AM  
She wasn't really going to school. She was meeting a nice man she met on IRC.
2002-01-18 01:20:17 AM  
i saw something like this on fox the other night
they had this crazy video of this girl, with an suv...
she drove it, and she got rammed by cops, and i laughed
2002-01-18 01:25:52 AM  
Take the keys to your uncles Jeep, or ask you uncle to drive you to school. Yeah, she made the right decision.
2002-01-18 01:26:17 AM  
2 cars hit, no injuries...

.... until her uncle finds out what happened to his vehicle.

"Sweet merciful crap, my car!!"
2002-01-18 01:30:47 AM  
She did better than my driver's ed partner her first time behind the wheel.
2002-01-18 01:39:30 AM  
Brave, brave girl.
2002-01-18 02:03:23 AM  
9-year-old steals a car and drives it into personal property... no citation. another one brings a tweety bird keychain to school and gets suspended for 2 weeks. what the fark?
2002-01-18 02:30:46 AM  
I just want the girls of FARK to be with me....

Ryanmac: Don't get your hopes up.
2002-01-18 06:27:16 AM  
No injuries? That sucks.
2002-01-18 06:43:26 AM  
Wulph: Good observation - Cops are farkholes.
2002-01-18 07:18:16 AM  
She caused less damage than most female drivers do when they drive. Seriously: Women should not be allowed to drive, or be allowed out of the house. All women are evil, and should only be let out on a leash and only for 20 seconds a day.
2002-01-18 08:00:15 AM  
She's no worse than a lot of those old farts who shouldn't be out on the road anyway.
2002-01-18 08:11:46 AM  
...i don't know about you all...but i like this girl...
2002-01-18 08:14:40 AM  
Ok boys, any day any time, I'll drive circles around ya, bring it on.

Her adventure is about the equivalent of some blundering male middle aged care thieves that make the news. And shes 9!!!! Suuuuuuure she was on her way to school......

Snarf-snarf- AMEN!
2002-01-18 08:17:18 AM  
uh...that would be CAR thieves
<<<< can't spell
Can drive
2002-01-18 08:41:03 AM  
And when this girl turns 16 her insurance will still be cheaper than mine! Damn you!
2002-01-18 08:45:19 AM  
Jeez, i know sheez only 9, but thats no excuse! I bet that if it was an 18 yr old like me, who took the car to get to school and hit a car or two on the way, id be thrown in jail with grand theft auto charges and intent to commit suicide with possible manslaughter 2 charges. Now thats what im talking bout!!

3 cheers for the american system...

at least da taliman would chop both our heads off...Equality for all!!!! :P
2002-01-18 08:47:01 AM  
Not all women are bad drivers. I've seen really awful men drivers too. A couple of times I seen them try to run people off the road.
2002-01-18 09:16:14 AM  
All the children are innocent. Man, I wouldn't have had the guts to do something like that when I was 9. If I had the guts I would have driven my grandpa's tractor all over the place. Did'nt need keys for that, and gramps would have opened a can of whoop ass on me, if I did.
2002-01-18 09:19:56 AM  
Mr Kitty....don't forget burqas for the ugly ones!
2002-01-18 09:40:30 AM  
Little girl must have been playing Grand Theft Auto 3. She hit those parked cars on purpose. But she didn't run over any cops or random pedestrians to gain money and weapons.
