Aside from the other people these idiots take out at the same time, yes.

snailbarf: "ghost riding is stupid" - guy who never, ever stupid but fun things in his youth

"Stupid but fun things in his youth" = "throwing eggs at a house." Not "killing a family of four in a head-on collision" or "taking a curve at 70 mph and killing three passengers."

OHDUDENESS: In a perfect world, every time someone sees a douche doing this the automatic (and legal) reaction would be to give them a gentle nudge to the back corner of their bumper. Pretty sure that would nip the stupidity in the bud.

Just have your passenger snatch it from his hand, then speed off.

Seems like a self correcting problem.

Feel the steering wheel.

snailbarf:something like that...

just pointing out that most of you were young and stupid once too, except those who came into this world with full-on male pattern baldness, late for a sales call.

The only people that I've ever seen claim that it's normal for every teenager/young person to do really stupid shiat are people who are stupid adults. In my experience, people who claim that are projecting.

Not every young person is a dangerous, thoughtless, idiot. You just don't notice the sane ones because they're not the ones on your lawn.

snailbarf: what about guys skitching rides on the back of cars? bumper surfing? going from car to car while in motion on a two lane road? kids been doing that stuff for like 50+ years...the only difference between the stupid fun now and then is that technology has evolved. the idiots are the same.

Growing up I never did anything stupidly dangerous like that and no one that I associated with did either. Those are the actions of idiots, not of youth. Idiocy knows no age restrictions.

Oh god I sure hope this doesn't become the next big fad.
Here, let me blog about it.
That'll keep it secret.

Fart_Machine: I was hoping for a video of some guy driving by and pulling the wheel out of his hand.

Ohh, I would be SO tempted to do exactly that, especially if it was on the freeway.

Er, I...
I don't get it. Does hanging your steering wheel out the driver window make you cool or something?

I must be getting old, because it seems just farking stupid to me.

As someone who's hobby is modding cars, this is a disgrace. I will never understand why people, if you decide to mod your car, spend money for visual modifications before performance mods.

darthdrafter: Any concerned citizen who spots this activity on the road should immediately text about it to the authorities even as they driverun the dumbass off the road into a ditch.  It's their civic duty.

FTFY.  It's not like they can do anything about it without a steering wheel.

You can see his plates in the photo. Why not have an undercover car tail him one day and see if he pulls that shiat again? It's obviously dangerous.

I'd really enjoy seeing a follow-up with that.
