Off topic slightly, but does anyone have a link to that video posted here a few weeks ago where a man gets out of his car and pleads with another man to not hit him with his car? It is a safe driving video and I cannot find it anywhere.

Children don’t get enough exercise these days and should be allowed to skip. Unless bullying is involved, of course.

What?

Never mind.

It really nailed the whole “carefree, I love life, pretty, white Tumblr kid” aesthetic. Like, these are the kids who are high risk for contracting affluenza.

Really? It reminds me of senior skip day 1972 - well minus the special effects at the end. And we were hardly affluent. Just lucky enough to be West Michigan kids in the days before 0bama wrecked the country.

I don’t think it’s an effective commercial. It fails to tie the cause (skipping school) with the effect (being blown to bits in your friends’ faces). But it was fun to watch, in a morbid way.

I owe my dear FRiend Lazamataz for being the first to turn me on to this...One truly sick individual, of many I’ve met online. Nobody told me the web would be so twisted.

It certainly wouldn’t have been effective with me as a kid for the fact that there were no military installations nearby when I was a kid.

Getting bitten by a muskrat or tripping over a barbed wire fence just wouldn’t have scared me much.

A little dramatic but I understand the sentiment. My older boy was killed by a rocket propelled grenade in Iraq. Not so messy but I didn’t really study the autopsy report that well. Closed casket was enough.

Dittos on the gunnery ranges. But I had the same terrain as you, about 15-20 miles (maybe) away from your equally misspent youth. Frankly, I was in much more danger of blowing my foot off with a shotgun while shooting at a frog.

I can’t begin to describe how much trouble school kept us out of. And we didn’t even have streets to keep us off of. I remember those days of “How do we keep you kids out of the streets?”

Hell, give us enough plinking ammo (and something to shoot at) and you won’t see us for months!

If I was cynical, I’d say that logic would not be the most logical way to reach slackers, while blowing them up when they are almost naked and about to get laid would emotionally stick through psychic trauma - and so be an extremely logical strategy.

You have a good point. It’s gotta work better than those filmstrips we had when I was in school. I used to pore over those to make sure I was learning how to do drugs properly. And stuff.

Before they got Disneyfied, children's stories were often this gory. Their goal was to scare the crap out of children and drill into them to do the right thing, or at least not to do the wrong thing.

Pinocchio is a public service message about staying in school. His father sends him to school, and along the way he skips it to join a marionette show, and is taken prisoner.
