How drunk and stupid does a person have to be, to do this?

Man Charged In Friend's 'Surfing' Death On Top Of SUV
David Weyrens, 19, Dies From Head Injury

POSTED: 5:56 pm CDT July 6, 2005

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- A Kansas man was charged Wednesday in the death of a friend who was "surfing" on top of a moving sports utility vehicle and fell off and hit his head.

David Weyrens, 19, was on the top of his Land Rover Discovery when the bar from a luggage rack apparently broke off and he fell to the pavement. He later died of a severe head injury.

John McKenzie, 19, of Topeka, Kan., was driving and swerving the vehicle. He was charged with second-degree reckless homicide in Sheboygan County.

3. Culling the herd.
Jeebus, how f$%*ing stupid can people be. Guess this is what comes from thinking that beer commercials and "Jackass" are templates for real life. No sympathy for anyone involved in this kind of idiocy.
