Old Man Crashes Car Into Pool But No One Dives
There is a reason why we make 16 year olds go through a practical and written test in order to get a driver’s license. Because we have to make sure they know what they’re doing. Would it be so horrible to have everyone have to take another test at a certain age? A lot can happen in 60 years and some people needed to be tested more frequently. Take the 86-year-old man who crashed his car into his backyard pool in Altadena, California, this past Saturday. And for that matter, take his license!
Look, I’m sure the unnamed 86-year-old is a nice man. But my grandmother is a nice woman. That doesn’t mean she needs to be behind the wheel of a vehicle. What makes this story even more incredible is that the man was “pulling into his garage” when he crashed. How do you go from pulling into the garage to submerged in the backyard pool?? Apparently, through the garage door.
The man said that his flip-flops got tangled up in the pedals and that’s what caused him to crash. Well… I say that is another glaring indictment on this fella. Flip flops while driving? This isn’t the beach, pal. For driving a car, you need the stability and unyielding firmness of a shoe!

It requires skill, concentration, and a little something called footwork.
When it comes to flip flops, a lot of people do know how to use/wear them correctly. And some don’t. Por ejemple:
