It's funny when you here people talk about how it is 'so much more dangerous today' when in fact it isn't.  The difference is that people know about the terrible things that happen, but those terrible things were happening back in the 50s and 60s, but the news didn't report on it the way they do now.  If anything kids are actually much safer today than they have been in the past.

I don't know how I ever survived being a kid.  Seatbelts didn't always exist.  Young kids rode in the front of cars.  For little league we would pile in the bed of a pickup truck and drive 20 miles to a game.  Got all muddy at your soccer game.  You walk two miles home so you don't get mud all over your parents car.  Somehow I survived.

I'm surprised it took this long for race to come up. You're slipping, Fark.

So, because she is black she deserves to get a free pass on being an ignorant, neglectful biatch?  That's what you're saying, isn't it?

Of course, its called being a democrat.

Epic Fap Session: It's like they hired Fark admins as editors.

Since you're busting on the editors, I thought I'd mention that there is not a town in Texas named Cowley.  There *is* a town named Crowley, south of Ft Worth, which is where this actually happened.

You try picking up six children after swim class. They're all vigilant about 'stranger danger' and sh*t now, it doesn't even matter how many puppies you have in the van.

the investigation is trying to determine exactly what caused the children to come off the car, but they suspect alcohol and driver error.

It was actually physics and gravity, but sure, we'll go with your answer instead.

KingKauff: Half a mile and the kids couldn't walk it? I weep for our youth.

People are often saying to me about how they used to walk 900 miles when they were kids, but nowadays things are so bad what with the child sex predators hiding in every tree and the internets and the snap chats with the kids sexting and a hipping and a hopping and pipping and a popping.  It's not like in our days when we had jello pudding pops and new coke.

I grew up during the satanic ritual abuse scare.  My mom was convinced that there were satanists everywhere.  She also was though that glasnost was a scam to trick us into letting our guard down.  Hmm, maybe she was right on that last one.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: In all fairness, chlorine is terrible for car interiors. She's just being practical about the resale value.

And you can never get the smell of children out either.
