I like skateboarding. I want to do a "Good or Bad?" on it sometime and give it a +1 karma. But some skateboarders are dumb.

Take, for instance, Josh Gardner, a fifth-grader from El Segundo, California. He's getting a new skateboarding park named after him, since his idiotic death prompted the town to build a safe skating environment.

Ok, now WAIT A MINUTE.

"Joshua, a fifth-grader at Center Street School, died June 21 when he skateboarded on his back down Grand Avenue, rode into a parking lot and into the path of a Chevrolet Suburban."

on his BACK??? Can that be right? What the hell did this kid think he was doing??? Darwin award is right.
