NASCAR Driver Hits A Wall On Purpose Because It Worked In A Video Game

When kids are young, parents generally need to make sure that they understand that what they see and do in video games is not real, and should not be tried in the real world. Most kids will understand this, and not try stupid things like hijack cars, jump down strange plumbing pipes or attacking someone with a large sword. Unfortunately some kids don’t learn those lessons, and grow into adulthood. Then they get a career racing cars and decide to try a stupid maneuver just because it worked in a video game. Yes, Carl Edwards, I’m talking about you.

I planned on hitting the wall, but I didn’t plan on the wall slowing me down that much. In video games, you can just run into the wall and run it wide open. That’s what I did, but it didn’t quite work out the same as the video game.

That is an actual quote from Carl Edwards, age 29. I don’t know who decided that this genius should be a NASCAR driver, but they should seriously reconsider the idea. You didn’t plan on the wall to slow you down because you could do it in a video game. You sir, need some serious help.
