Stupid Things Teenagers Do

Car Surfing 1 of 9

Teenagers are really stupid. It's hard-wired into their systems to do ridiculous things, but it seems like each generation continues to step up the level of stupidity. In addition to usual things, like blasting loud music and staying out past curfew, kids are getting involved in downright idiotic and often dangerous activities.

One popular trend with teens is car surfing. It involves climbing on top of a car and having a friend drive around while you hold on. While it's easy to see the appeal of the adrenaline rush, it should also be easy to see how this activity can turn deadly. Here are just a few scary facts about it:

  • It began in the 1980s.
  • Head injuries are almost guaranteed in the case of a fall.
  • At least 100 people died or were seriously injured from the activity since 1990.
  • Related injuries have been reported in 31 states.
