I had just finished reading the "Stupid things I've done" thread when I glanced up at the TV and saw the latest Rebel commercial. You know, the one that shows a man standing on the edge of a snowy roof, a woman running with a giraffe, a guy in chest deep water trying to take a picture and the person luge-ing down a street filming a rolling, burning tire.

Maybe I'm turning into an old f*rt, but that commercial really bugs the you-know-what out of me. The very clear subtext seems to be that hey, it's okay to risk life and limb in the pursuit of self-expression/creativity. Am I out of line thinking this kind of advertising is incredibly irresponsible?

The trick is not to make lemonade when life hands you lemons. The trick is to find the person life has handed vodka to and then have a party.
