What exactly is fun about making the wheels of your car spin around while not moving? It makes noise and smoke...whoopee! Go buy some fireworks. Are people really this easily amused? And not just this easily amused, but this easily amused and also so desperate for that amusement that they ignore the risks? Not to mention that it's probably really, really bad for the tires. I wonder how people can possibly stupid enough to think something like this is fun, but then I see what the kid's father had to say about it:
''Accidents happen," Pettinelli's father, Robert, told WBZ-TV yesterday. He said he was relieved that his son was not hurt.
Uh, yes, accidents do happen. I'm not really sure how that's at all relevant to this story. Here are a couple of definitions of accident:
anything that happens by chance without an apparent cause
An unforeseen and unintended event
I guess it is an accident in the sense that it was unintended and he didn't do it on purpose, but it's not an accident in the sense that it happened by chance or that it had no apparent cause. I really hope they take away the kid's drivers license.
