Jackass should be Banned!

I just read that some guy stuck fire crackers up his butt because he wanted to be Jackass. Now he is in the hospital. This show needs to taken off the air before someone dies.

Relax, every idiot that offs themselves by doing stunts from Jackass doesn't procreate and cleanses the gene pool.

i totally disagree. if someone is stupid enough to actually do that then they deserve the consequences. to blame someone else for your actions is as stupid as the actions themselves.

You know... If somebody is stupid enough to imitate what they see on those shows, they deserve what happens.

Darwinism works! The only thing that should be banned is this guy from entering the gene pool.

This has been going on since before Evel Knievel. Good luck in your crusade on stamping out idiocy, though.

Hey, while we're at it, we should also ban any show that depicts unsafe sex. And driving too fast. And drinking too much. And not flossing daily.

Has Jackass ever done an episode of something like this? Not sure why people watch the show, just seems like mindless entertainment, but not saying it should be banned.

We could say "This show does nothing but promote stupidity, therefore it should be banned in order to protect our society."

The argument to this would be: "The 1st Amendment protects free speech, regardless of how stupid it is."

Forget about that. This guy should be erased from existence, because what if someone tries to do the same thing emulating him???

Well, you can't blame the guy for bringing it up. Most of the dumbest law suits were brought up and won by dumb people who knew exactly what the consequence was gonna be, but still did it and end up winning millions and millions. This is America buddy, land of the stupids who get millions for being idiots. And if you're dumb enough, you can even be the president.

I don't know if this is old news or not, but here's the story:

Jackass warning after horrific firecracker accident

Doctors in Australia have urged people to not to attempt Jackass style stunts after a man burnt his genitals in a firecracker accident.

The 26-year-old Australian man suffered a fractured pelvis and severe burns when a firecracker exploded between the cheeks of his buttocks.

The incident has left the man, from Illawarra, New South Wales, incontinent and unable to have sex and he is expected to remain in hospital for several months.

Dr Robert McCurdie, who operated on the man when he was taken to Wollongong Hospital, likened the man's condition to "a war injury".

Dr McCurdie said he believed the man had stumbled while the firecracker was in his buttocks, and fell down on it.

"By virtue of the fact that the explosion was confined in an upward direction, it went up into his pelvis, blasted a great hole in the pelvis, ruptured the urethra, injured muscles in the floor of the pelvis which rendered him incontinent. His pelvis was also fractured."

It is not known whether the man was imitating the cult prankster film Jackass in which men place firecrackers in their buttocks and shoot them into the air.

Acting Senior Sergeant John Klepczarek said the danger with movies like Jackass was that some people were tempted to try the stunts at home.

"They're putting themselves at risk, and other people. We do caution people strongly against following these acts," he said.

Acting Follower of Reason das Monkey said that the danger with stupid people is that they do stupid things and then blame others for their own stupidity.
