Cool story bro here. My dad actually took that record and broke it over my aunt's head because she wouldn't stop playing it while he was trying to study for finals.

A kid who worries more about the solution than the rules. He is gonna piss some people off, but I hope he picks worthwhile problems to solve.

Being 11, I'm sure he'll have some time to balance it out and become batman or something.

Is a Mercedes more difficult to drive? I know they don't have turn signals but otherwise how is it important to this story what model of car it was?

Good thing he didn't get into an accident.

Even if you've been karting, the way vehicular traffic behaves is totally different than how traffic behaves on a track.

A lot better than an average person getting a ride to a hospital in a Ford, I suppose

Uh-oh. Driving without a license. That just gave the cops justification to shoot him in a few more years.

I was driving tractors at 11.

I could have handled a Mercedes no problem.

Very nice story, but it sounds like what he did was to drive her half a mile home to get some sugar and glucagon, not to the hospital.  Which is more than I could have done at age 11.  Or 17 for that matter.

This may come as a shock to you but a lot of singers don't write the songs they sing.  I think folks called song writers so that.  They kinda put it on paper and let singers have at it.

CSB: I was driving my uncle to a hospital appointment last year. He can't walk very well (we had to stop and rest on a bench just walking to the front door to the reception desk), so we get free valet parking. We arrived at the hospital in the 1996 Corolla I was driving at the time. As I handed over the keys, I told the valet "I don't mind a few dents, but change the radio and you are a dead man!"

Headline says he drove he to the hospital. Article says he drove her back to the house.
