actualy car vs scooter dosnt say much at all and can be interpreted in diffrent ways one being drag race or weather protection etc, "car vs scooter traffic incident" would of been a better subject line for people who didnt want to view a traffic incident.
Why would you be a psychopath? If the victim itself is alive and kicking and can even laugh about it, why wouldn`t *you* laugh about it? I would be more worried if your friend ended up lying in a coma, while you were roaring with laughter at his bed`s head. Or... maybe I shouldn`t. Morals in society are changing after all. Your friend is in a coma, there`s nothing you can do about it, so why not be merry about this spectacular accident? Besides, sh*t happens, get over it.
But I agree, when you`re witnessing an accident, I suppose it`s better to call in some help first, before you start laughing your ass off. Too bad, though, that when the ambulances arrive the joy will be over.
PhoenixPhata for President!
Can you not read? The whole point of what people have been trying to tell you is that there is nothing wrong with finding this entertaining; so long as everyone knows that if they were involved in this situation, they would try to help
I know someone thats been hit by a car in a similar situation to this, not exactly the same but close enough. He laughs about it now and we laugh about it with him, does that make us all psychopaths?
On the other side, I find your ignorance more entertaining than this video.
Sh*t happens, get over it
"Congrats, IAB - a new low! I come to this site to be entertained, not watch this lowbrow s**t! - If I wanted to watch something disgusting involving maiming or possibly death, I`d have visited moid.org instead. - Not just bad, but completely tasteless"
Next time, don`t click on a link that says `NSFW` or `somewhat graphic,` ass.
ALWAYS, no matter if you`re on a bike or in a car, look to see if traffic has stopped! No matter what!
If your eyes were open while watching the video you could.
PhoenixPhata: "What I`m trying to explain is that you feel bad about it simply because societal morals say you should which is, when you get down to it, silly. There`s nothing you can do to help and laughing at the event doesn`t harm anyone."
Are you saying the scooter rider was "unharmed?"
so·ci·o·path - nouna person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.
Just a definition thrown in for no particular reason.
ok i`m starting too feel too philosophical herewheres the gay por....nevermind
but dayum thats crazy!
Also, this is a site for entertainment, not always `funny` things. Entertainment isn`t always `haha-hehe`. It`s just anything that captures the attention.
In this case, a delicious car wreck...
It`s about empathy, not morality. Someone who cannot or does not empathize with others is not, as you imply, choosing to stand firm against societal pressures; rather, he/she lacks emotional maturity and probably has psychological problems.
``How did I know that the driver would be an asian woman.``
jesus, that guy did a 720 before landing....thats frickin crazy - i hopes he`s ok, and if he is alive, not in a vegetative state or something...
That may be true for you, but it is not true for everybody. I feel terrible for people who get hurt through no fault of their own (like this scooter guy) because I feel empathy for them. Societal pressure has nothing to do with it. It may not be as strong as if I saw it happen to my parent, wife, or kid, but it is there.
I don`t mean to be patronizing, but I see you are in the 13-17 year old range; I used to be more like you. But that changes with more life experiences (say, experiencing injury or hardship, or seeing a close loved one experience it). The inability to have empathy with strangers is common, though. That`s why people are such jerks online, and why there are more jerks in big cities than in small ones.
It`s different if the guy in the car ran a red light. I couldn`t see if he did or not.
To answer a few other comments:BigBony: The man on the scooter appears to have had the right of way and probably couldn`t see the car until it was too late.
About the camera: It was set up either by pedestrians or police. People have been known to set up cameras at hot spots for violence or accidents to have video proof and discourage people from breaking the law.
You do not feel bad about the accident in the same way that you would if a loved one experienced that accident because you have no emotional connection. You feel bad about the accident because societal norms say that a good person should feel bad about that accident (some people do bring it to a closer emotional level with the, "it could have been a loved one" idea). It is, again, not a bad thing that you feel that way because those feelings are in place to protect society.
However if every person here would help if they were in a position to do so then what they do when they can have no effect is moot. Society and its morals are sti
And you`re all so shocked, Im guessing none of you have been on other shock video sites like Ogrish/LiveLeak or Break.com then?
And yeah, I come to IAB for entertainment, which this isnt, and Im kinda getting tired of seeing limbs breaking and stuff on here too.
Buddy, does your web site really need stuff in which people get severely hurt? Boredom can be relieved in many other ways. You don`t have to copy rotten.com, do you?
Welcome to the internet, you`ll find your baseball bat to keep the trolls away in your room.
i mean.. thank the freaking lord he lived..
Fact is, I`ve witnessed fatal accidents. They are not pretty, & not funny. I think IAB`s judgement on presenting this particular `car crash` clip was ill-advised, and tasteles, as there is no resolution. That`s my point. I`m not complaining about how graphic it is (god knows I`ve seen MUCH worse!), but that it simply is a clip where most likely, a fatality most probably did occur, purely for entertainment.
Thanks for making a civil contribution to my point, PhoenixPhata. I appreciate it! :-) All the rest of you just telling me to shut up can go f*ck your stupid f*cked up selves.
Do you honestly give a poo about any of those people? You "care" for no other reason than that societal morals dictate that you should. It`s not a bad thing but since all of us are unable to offer aid in this situation it is a moot sentiment.
As for the video: Older than dirt in intrawebz time.
Wow, disoriented1 sure is confused. )-|
but atleast he got anInsane Stunt Bonus!yay!
If the guy got up afterwards, fair enough. We`ve seen those on IAB as well, but how would you feel watching this vid, knowing that the guy in it died? Would you still think it was entertaining?
@Trello: Shut up.
p.s. wow! - at least the dude could move his arms after...
If it`s for real, well... If you`re riding a motorbike or similar, remember to look left and right...
