Jackass, Ridiculousness and my (your) son- a blog

“Hi, my name is John and I enjoy watching Ridiculousness”

I just spent the last 2 hours watching Ridiculousness with my son and loved it.

First of all, let’s clear this up. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a female (girl/woman) do something so stupid that it showed up in a video on Ridiculousness.  Girls/Women are smarter than boys/men.  Clearly.

That being said, upon watching this show for about 5 total hours now, happily, I’ve come to the conclusion that it does not “give good kids bad ideas”. In fact, it gives relatively intelligent 13 year olds a window into what might happen to them should they attempt something stupid. The relatively (see how I use that word) intelligent ones are able to perform a rudimentary cost/benefit analysis based on what they’ve seen on TV/YouTube and at least not get seriously injured. I hope.

This type of insight was unavailable to me and my idiot friends (Mike K., Steve and Jeff B., Mark B., my brother, etc.) when we were putting a bunch of 2×4’s and a piece of plywood together with no nails and making a bike jump out of it.  It always ended well.

In the final analysis, I’m not doing that kind of stupid stuff anymore and it’s fun to watch on TV.  Better than Dallas, The Good Wife and Squatch, that’s for sure.

Watching Jackass in Italy now and loving it.  I might have to call my sponsor after this episode. Or the next…
