Youtube (well, the posters there) made me sick this morning

So i was browsing youtube this morning, which i never really do unless someone posts a guitar person, or something on funny on here. I don't even remember i searched first, but through all the "related videos" that I clicked, I saw one about dirtbike crash. So being that lots of people record vids of them recording wrecks that end up being entertaining where no one gets hurt, I clicked on it.

So it's a bunch of probably 18 to 20 year olds doing jumps on dirt mounds. This one kid over shoots the land and smashes the bike into the ground. All the others run over, and the kid's neck is bent way back and and he's convulsing on the ground, I'm sure with a broken neck and dying. The kid with the camera kept the camera on it for at least 30 seconds. I'm sorry, but i'm guessing these people where friends. Wouldn't you think that as soon as you saw that you'd drop the camera to try to do something to help. As much as that sickened me, isn't it worse that those people found it a great idea to post it on freaking youtube?

Ugh I knwo it's a random rant, but it's actually been haunting me all day. I just find it appalling that people regard that sort of thing as entertainment. Maybe they were posting it for shock to get people to think before doing those kinda things, but I dunno. Does anyone else feel that some of this crap is going to far? It's one thing about violent video games, or movies, or what not, I have no problem with that... but to post actual deaths (or what i'm asuming ended in a death) like that. And now that i looked, there are tons of videos like that. Maybe i'm an old fashioned 25 year old, but I find it terrible that people do this.

I dunno. It just really bothered me, and i needed to vent. Go ahead and lock if you deem this inappropriate.

It's sick, and I hate it too. I don't have to or want to see everything.

Was it this one?

I don't think it was a broken neck though, if it was, he wouldn't be moving, and would have probably died right when that dumb ass took his helmet off or right on impact, more likely a moderate TBI which causes seizures and subdural hematomas.

+1. When a person breaks his or her neck, that person dies almost instantly. In the case of this guy, he would've been motionless and his neck wouldn't have been firm like it was when the other guy took the helmet off.

Can't rule out compression fractures and ruptured disks though...

He just got knocked out. Wouldn't be surprised if a broken bone or two. Kind of like when fighters get knocked out and keep swinging flat on their back. Bad deal nonetheless.

This is why I don't ride any kind of bikes!! I can barely walk let alone have the prowess to operate a motorcycle without killing myself!!

Pennsylvania has seatbelt laws for cars , but no helmet laws for motorcycles or bicycles!! How weird is that?

Re: Youtube (well, the posters there) made me sick this morning

A couple of weeks ago, we had someone hit and run someone in Hollywood. The driver didn't even tap the breaks. Worse, three people drove by the injured pedestrian without stopping to help.
I've seen some pretty nasty things on the Internet; things I never thought I'd see put on ANY form of mass-media because it was too damned disturbing.
And many WANT to watch this stuff!
We're becoming a SICK species!
We'd be better off playing more music!
