i don’t even know what to say about this genius:

Wednesday evening in Roseville, Mich., a 24-year-old man who apparently knew his pickup truck’s brakes weren’t working got behind the wheel anyway and tried to drive home.

He attempted, Fred Flintstone-style, to use his feet as brakes.

-via NPR

Unbelievable. The headline is brilliant, though.

I wonder if they would have used the same tone in the article had he killed or seriously injured someone.

Depends on the someone he killed or injured. If it was a cyclist, the tone would be something along the lines of “Scofflaw cyclist killed despite driver’s heroic effort to stop his car with his feet.”
