so asinine that it puts their
health and the health of their
friends at risk. What at one time seemed like a perfectly wise and humorous
exercise quickly unfolds into near
traumatic meltdown of epic proportion. Think Darwin, but not in the sense of reproduction or evolution.
When driving down a perfectly beautiful mountain road, one decides that
a sparsely cleared, treacherously rocky, pine-cone
encrusted jeep trail to the right seems like
a logical route for a Subaru Forester
to explore at 60 miles
per hour. Screeching
skid, flailing arms, wailing voices, mountains of dust, and a pine cone
later, the car is humbling and hysterically unloaded to replace the right front wheel because a pine cone sliced
a 1-inch gash in the sidewall. This deserves
a Watson Award for sheer stupidity that
ultimately led to endless laughter and ridicule.
