People got their legs blown off a limbs blown off people who behind. The super car it's no big deal is just one big Garrick. And this is what I am noticing now with not all but with a lot of young people today it's like. There's something that isn't computing in their heads it's as if they don't have a conscience. It says if there's no moral -- there's no sense of what's appropriate inappropriate. Right wrong good evil. It's all one big movie. It's almost like how how how Amish zombie in a movie. And this girl didn't get a and so eventually under tremendous pressure she got to put up a couple post saying she apologized. But even her coworkers relate this woman just doesn't didn't. So she eventually ended up losing her job she got fired for it. Because of so much attention that it talked her into her place of work. But it just became such a destruction in front of the coworkers were so disgusted. And her boss said forget it.
