The very definition of fucking stupid

This moron bragged on Facebook about drunk driving and hitting a couple of cars.

    Hey kids…DON’T DO THIS….(dumb ass…)

    Gloating over a stupid kid’s stupid mistakes. Classy stuff, guys.

    • http://www.yourmaclifeshow.com/ Shawn King

      LMAO Are you new here? :)

        I don’t know what constitutes new around here, but I’ve been coming here long enough to get the gist, I think.

        Between posting genuinely interesting links to interesting things that other people have to say about Apple and the occasional confirmation or denial of a rumour, there is a litany of foot stomping over even the most mundane of criticism directed at Apple, name calling and dirt kicking at anyone praising products that compete with Apple or even at the products and companies themselves, rose-tinted reviews of anything Apple releases, monthly self-congratulatory posts about how virtuous the work being done here is, and immature shit like this.

        I enjoy the interesting links to interesting things other people have to say about Apple and the inside scoop stuff, but the rest doesn’t really do it for me. It’s your blog, but that’s my honest feedback. I’m sure plenty of people find that stuff entertaining, and maybe you get a kick out of it yourself. But as someone who appreciates the other stuff enough to keep coming here, I can’t help but object to this kind of thing. Because I care :)

          Where exactly is the gloating?

          Darcy, there’s the door – you know the drill. We’re not going to change because it offends your delicate sensibilities.

          • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

            I read here time and time again that this blog is open to feedback from readers, but in practice that never seems to be true. Agree or get out. At least that’s honest.

          • Peter Cohen

            We’re certainly open to feedback from readers. But if it’s clear that the reader is consistently unhappy with the product, as is the case with you and your near-constant niggling and criticism, the solution is obvious.

          • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

            Peter, this blog is in the business of near-constant niggling and criticism, typically in a far more aggressive and demeaning manor than I could be accused of. If you can’t handle a small taste of your own medicine from time to time, maybe you should be redirecting your delicate sensibilities comment towards yourself.

      • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

        Sorry, I initially replied to your original comment, which stopped at the smiley face. Since you’ve edited your comment I’ll respond now to the rest.

        Of course I wouldn’t rather you talk to the kid. Seriously? I just find it sad that you feel the need to publicly mock a child for his mistakes.

        Do you think you’re doing anyone a service here by jumping on the mockery train? Because that would be delusional.

        This is gloating, pure and simple. And to do that at a kid’s expense is, I think, pretty weak. Weak of character and weak of spirit.

          18 is not a “child” or a “kid”. At that age you are charged as an adult and are old enough to face the music of your actions. This is a mistake that kills people. Horribly

          You should have compassion for the people like this criminal idiot have killed, maimed and torn from their loved ones. It is soft hearts like yours that lead to people like this having an earlier opportunity to destroy lives again.

          We can only hope that his stupidity will keep pace with his poor choices and he weeds himself out of the gene pool before he breeds.

          • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

            I’m in no way condoning this kid’s actions or denying the consequences of his or other people’s similar actions, which have destroyed innocent people’s lives. I have a mountain of compassion for anyone who has been affected by the terrible spectre of drunk driving.

          I don’t care how old he is, any kid who is stupid enough to drive drunk deserves to be mocked. It isn’t something that can be brushed away as a youthful screwup.

          The fact that he piles on the stupid by bragging about it, on Facebook no less, makes it practically obligatory.

          There’s nothing weak of character about gloating over someone getting caught doing something that put other people in mortal danger, and being proud of having done it.

          • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

            I would think by its very definition that gloating is a weakness of character, regardless of the context.

        • http://www.yourmaclifeshow.com/ Shawn King

          “I just find it sad that you feel the need to publicly mock a child for his mistakes.”

          OK.

          “Do you think you’re doing anyone a service here by jumping on the mockery train?”

          Sorry – I didn’t realize our comments were meant to do this kid a service. You’ll let us know when he reads this and we’ll be sure to provide him with our best fatherly advice.

          “This is gloating, pure and simple.”

          OK.

            “Sorry – I didn’t realize our comments were meant to do this kid a service.”

            When I wrote anyone I meant anyone at all. As in the big picture.

            “You’ll let us know when he reads this and we’ll be sure to provide him with our best fatherly advice.”

            I’ve already responded that I wouldn’t rather you talk to this kid. This is twice now you’ve insisted otherwise. Maybe you do want to talk to him. It’s starting to seem that way. But the patriarchal fantasies of Shawn King are none of my business. All I can say is that’s not what I’m interested in.

      It’s not classy to gloat when genuine misfortune happens to someone. That I don’t condone. However, there is no misfortune that happened to this kid. In fact, he’s the one who did harm to others with his reckless behavior.

      He deserves what he gets.

      • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

        I’m not suggesting the kid deserves to be shielded from the consequences of his actions. But I stand by my assertion that gloating over it isn’t classy.

          Perhaps there are classier ways to call out an idiot for having committed a carelessly foolish act that might have cost lives.

          Or perhaps it takes strong language to correct the behavior of someone who might benefit from hearing it. “Kid” or otherwise.

      Clearly you’ve never lost a family member in an auto accident. I have. So all I can say is:

      Fuck this kid. Fuck his whole family for raising him this way. Fuck all his friends who allowed him to drive. And FUCK YOU for having the least bit of sympathy for him.

      • http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick

        Jim, I’m sorry for the loss you’ve suffered. No one should ever have to endure that. I don’t sympathize with this kid. If that’s the impression I’ve given you then I sincerely apologize.

      • http://www.yourmaclifeshow.com/ Shawn King

        Amen.

      Stupidity should called out at every chance. Especially when it’s a chain of stupidity capped off with bragging about being stupid.
