Whatever happend to "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"?

Ummm... he was diving onto a mattress. She kicked the mattress out of the way while he was in the air. So, she can hurt him very badly when he isn't prepared for something like that to happen, and has no time to compensate for it.

"What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger" is normally true in the mental, spiritual, emotional sense. Not in the physical sense.

I laughed at it. Why? I dunno, it was just funny, and unexpected. Would I be laughing if that was my kid? Nope, but it's not. Does that make me a bad person? Don't know, don't care.

OK, it's funny, I just had to laugh, but what is the deep down reason for it being funny. Some might not even find it funny, so just want to discuss the reasoning.

I wouldn't laugh if that happened to me, but would understand why others would laugh because I'm laughing at this video. So the questions remains, why do I find it funny? But maybe it can help me out if I find out why others would find it funny, if they find it funny. And why wouldn't they find it funny?

And no, that's not me.

Laughing anf finding something humerous is often a natural defence to something that distresses the human mind. It is natural.


It doesn't distress me at all.

american culture ? , enough said


Great to hear from the Blame America First crowd.

Japanese game shows are much more dangerous than this redneck prank.

Scary that a large portion of society doesn't give a dam
anymore and has replaced sensibility with unwitting laughter.

Getting entertainment from other pain, would fall in the category
and definition of :
Without concern for the effects on others ,
Sociopaths are interested only in their personal needs and desires.

Seriously...

Some people act like they've never horsed around when they were young, pulled silly pranks and were only allowed out in a neck brace, blow up body suit and a crash helmet.

Hurting yourself is a part of life, some of us have ended up face first in the grass THAT'S why it's funny...

Is it still funny when the kid gets up and beats the girl? OH NO!!! you can't hit a girl. and if the roles were reversed would it still be so funny?

Well there's the problem right there, " Don't know, don't care"

Ever been tortured and laughed at while you were in pain? ever been tormented?
What if I was to say that i think footage of your mother being raped was hilarious, would that concern you? would you 'care' about that?
How would you feel if you were the kid in the gif? you'd be pretty pissed, why would the girl do that? what if the kid had of injured his neck, should the girl be criminally prosecuted?

Be an active member of both your community and the human race and learn to care or else when bad things happen to you, maybe no one will care.

I agree that it's probably morally not right to laugh when most things like this happen, but I did have a giggle when I saw that he wasnt injured. The female who kicked the matress deserves a good slapping though.

Why is everyone saying "kid", that dude looks like a full grown adult with some facial hair and a bit of a beer gut, see how far he jumps? That aint no kid, looks like he's at least 18 from what I'm seing.

Whoa nellie! That's taking it too far buddy! Take it easy, and quit being so uptight! I'm sure the kid is okay, don't got to start talking about torture and mom's being raped.
This is just a prank! Sheesh

The problem with saying this is just a prank..is that it condones pranks..and pranks have led to some very serious injuries..and yes.. even death.

I know of someone who pulled a chair away from someone who was leaning up ,and when they went to sit back in the chair.. poof..on to the ground they went..and this was a stool so the fall was a ways down. This person seriously hurt his back..could not work.. and it changed his life from that moment on.

Ha ha..its just a silly prank.. right? NO...its stupid !!!

Until you are on the receiving end of a silly "prank" that causes serious life long injuries..you may never really understand how serious pranks can be.

You are praying for that poor child to be ok? Do you live in a box? Good on her for kicking it away - the kid probably deserved it.

CJ

He probably deserved it? Where did that come from? how could you possibly know that?

hmmmm

*cough cough - uptight- cough -sensitive- cough*

Sorry must be coming down with a cold! But seriously, I don't see how comparing this video, with being tortured, or someone's mom being raped really adds up! If you are so worried about this kid in the video, maybe you should look him up, do some research and find out who he is, and go coddle him and embrace him, and tell him 'Everything is gonna be alright'! Chances are, he has appeared on Tosh.0 already, got his 15 minutes of fame, and is now happy that the video was released. Worst case scenario, he hurt his ego and maybe his collarbone, but now he can impress girls with a clicking collarbone!

Either way, I think you are making too much out of this.

Why do you insist on taking what I say out of context..

What I'm worried about is that people think that mean spirited pranks are ok.. and refuse to see that many serious injuries could be prevented if people had a different outlook on what is considered "funny".

I have no desire to go coddle the boy who got pranked on.. but I sure have a desire to go give the girl who did it a taste of her own medicine.

The cavalier approach you take to this..may indeed come back to haunt you..when you or someone close to you becomes a victim of a childish "prank" . Hopefully you will still feel the same when someone says.."hey geez..now you can impress with your clicking collarbone, and a limp"

By the way..thanks for ..*cough* ....revealing your character ..karma right back at ya.

You just hit the proverbial nail on the head...a while back I posted I did something similar as a five year old - and I LEARNED FROM MY MISTAKE...by doing something dumb (which ALL children do)...I believe, without knowing what this really means, but that incident, made me think twice about doing it again. And I felt bad -AND I started to defend the "picked on" kids...maybe I felt so bad I LEARNED something.
