  1. Hahahaha...that'll learn those friggin idiots! I like the part when they go from frat-boy bravado, to screaming frightened little girls in the period of 4 seconds.

  2. For once, an instance where Oklahomans are smarter than those from Massachusetts. Idiots.

  3. Springfield has something like six or seven colleges and universities. These guys did not attend any of them.

  5. Tornadoes are VERY rare in New England [even more rare along the coast, like Boston]. Hurricanes [rare] if we do get one, are really weak by the time they reach N.E. The worse natural disasters are an occasional winter storm with heavy snow and high winds, and even then the inland areas generally get much more snow than coastal areas like Boston. And occasional spring flooding of rivers and streams.

  10. DG: They would have to be killed to qualify for the Darwin Award. If they had been, then they would definitely rank at or near the top.

  12. I think we all knew what we were watching before we even watched it. They may be dumb, but they made us look.

  13. They must have been so embarrased by the comments on YouTube, they had them disabled. xD

  14. "They made us look" is the sort of infantile frat boy bravado that made these fools wet their pants. Jump off a bridge, idiot, and you'll make me look--watching natural selection in action.
