The 'Birdbox' challenge and the stupidity of some people

It appears that the latest craze is driving a vehicle whilst blindfolded as shown in the film Birdbox starring Sandra Bullock. A teenager has already crashed whilst attempting this in the US state of Utah. As we know, Britain copies everything the US does, good or bad so expect to see some cases here too.

Well I suppose it has to be Corbyn for starters. He is already wearing blinkers.

If they weren't likely to hurt others I'd say darwin at work and we don't need these brains in our society.

I had to look up Fluffy (perhaps I should rephrase that?)... anyway, never heard of him.I do love the word 'Scunner' though, it sounds much much more offensive than it actually is.

I've also seen something along the same lines except it's stupid youngsters trying to catch alligators while blindfolded.

There will be a lot of well fed gators in the US

Totally Bizarre.

I wonder if we had a film where everyone acted sensibly, the teenagers would follow that?

I'm in a crocodile appreciation group on Facebook (I know, I'm weird ) and the guy who runs the group is highly amused by it, but.....when one of them gets bitten, or worse, what happens to the poor ole gator?

Idiots
