When Did I Become Thirty?

I fear for the future...i really, really do...

Around 7:30, 8 o'clock I'm standing up by the Demo table, looking out into the mall. Ahead and to my right four kids, two girls, two boys, none of them over 14, are playing with the Vectron demo (for those of you who don't know the Vectron is a propeller attached to styrofoam, and it flies up in the air and hovers). I ignore them, for they aren't doing anything, I don't think...but the phrase, "OW!" catches my attention! I look over and see one of the kids holding the Vectron by the top, pointing the propeller toward himself, and slowly lowering his out-stretched tongue into it. The propeller strikes his tongue, he yelps, and pulls away. I double take, thinking, "There is no way in HELL he's actually doing what I swear I just saw him doing..." and he does it AGAIN!

I walk over, as he's about to do it again, and he and his friends look at me. I ask, "Are you Stupid?!" The boys look at me, "...Yes..." "That's what I thought," I reply, and take the Vectron from them.

The sadder thing is, one of those kids will probably become president...

idk what's worse... the fact that he did that in the first place, the fact that he did it more than once, or that fact that he prob wouldn't have stopped if u didn't go over there... at least he's aware that he's an idiot though. acceptance is the first step to recovery... haha!
