The hot new thing from Burger King is their Halloween Whopper sandwich, with its edgy black food-dyed bun. Oh, please, spare us from idiocy. Ah, but it gets worse: apparently, people are finding that after it passes through the ol' digestive system it emerges as a bright, iridescent green byproduct. Yeah, food coloring can do that. Doubtless, these are the same geniuses who worry about GMO foods and Monsanto's evil plan to take over the planet.
And then there are the other idiots: a large number of flood-related deaths occur when people deliberately enter the floodwaters.
It seems to be sort of a "Hold my beer and watch this!" thing, although as seen above, kids do the same stupid stuff. As much as one-quarter of people killed in floods went there to swim, boat, or simply play. Between the sewage, the debris, the downed live power lines, and the currents, the odds aren't really in your favor. And then there are the folks who decide to just drive through the high water - it only takes two inches of water to float a car in current, but people will try. They seem to forget the timeless adage: if you can't see the road, stop driving.
