Puttin' the Dumb in Dumbass
Perhaps, that money would have been better spent teaching their kids about the works of Sir Isaac Newton.
When he realized the MBTA commuter train he was on was an express and not stopping at the Wellesley Hills station where he was bound, a 15-year-old from Ashland said he panicked and jumped off the train yesterday when it was traveling between 25 and 30 miles per hour.
Ouch...that's gonna leave a mark.
UPDATE: Here's my favorite quote from the article:
[Dumbass] also blamed the train's intercom system, which T officials said announced the express train, but which Todaro said he could not hear.
I'd say this kid has quite the future in Massachusetts politics.
