Part of the reason for the Schadenfreude is that not only did this guy do stupid and dangerous things, all but begging for an untimely demise, but he influenced kids to do the same.
He was a self-important idiot who thought he could beat the odds forever. His demise is now the best example for kids: Do stupid things and this is the result.
Trying real hard to give a damn, no luck , will check later.
The only way this kid could ever get a Porsche was to turn a wanton disregard for his own life into macabre performance art.
Once he got the Porsche, there was really only one thing for him to do with it. This is the kind of script that writes itself.
Saw that earlier...there really isn’t there that identifies that hunk of metal as a car...that might be the left running light on the far right...not sure.
Ditto. I hope, but doubt, that the MTV idiots get the message too.
...there really isn’t ANYTHING there...
Looks like he overshot his exit (for his speed) and tried to take it anyway...
Bump that...what an outrage.
Closed casket funeral, with alot of happy ants at the crash scene.
Why do they call this an “accident” when it was likely caused by driver stupidity?
No. Men don't. These three people did though.
Why are they drinking though swizzle sticks?
Somehow I guess we all knew that was going to happen someday.
Probably so drunk that they can’t hold the glass steady enough to drink properly..................
“Dunn was 34.”
His IQ was considerably lower.
Now he is 34 and done.
Stick a fork in him..................
