Cmon guys, you’ve never done anything stupid as a teenager?

A young man died, be respectful for his parents please.

Wait, let me think, ......,  nope, not that stupid, I am still alive!

Most of us did stupid things when we were young, some of us are seriously lucky to be alive, the difference now is, we can read about it due to the Internet

Correct on stupid things. Way too in to things and adventurous and if was a cat I have exceeded my lives 4-5 fold already. Not sure about the young but as I still get into and do things even now in my late 50’s that buck the safe system. But we only live once and if it is my time to go then hopefully it was on the books and not forced out of time.

It was his destiny. When you live so dangerously. Tragic because his family will now have to live with the memory of his foolishness as a reminder of his death.

Hi Mandy. Sorry, somehow the post you quoted of me was from another news article. Not sure why it showed up here as I do not think i posted on this news article. Glitch in the program perhaps? 

Anyway to correct and disect my comment on your comment and take the content of the student kid rape out:
