I live in Louisiana and i hear about people who can't swim drowning all the time(mostly black)....

i don't understand why such a large population of people that can't swim would move to a place that is mostly under sea-level.

I asked my 12 year old brother why he thinks they can't swim.    
He said, "Their makeup will run off."

I feel like a jerk for thinking of this.

Here we have natural selection at work.

Can't swim? WALK IN A ******* RIVER.

Don't have wings? JUMP OFF A CLIFF.

Allergic to bee stings? GO LIVE IN A HIVE.

Seriously, I know the deaths of these people is tragic and stuff, but what the **** .

They were trying to help their family/friend out. You make it sound so bad.

Ok genius. Say a plane is in trouble and the oxygen masks have dropped down. What do you do?

THe natural answer is to secure your own mask before helping others. If you don't secure your own mask then you'll help maybe ONE person if you're lucky. Secure your own mask and you can help others.

First I laughed ... but then it got me thinking
How horrifying is to watch someone you love drown and you can`t swim.
Also they all come from 2 families. Damn. Imagine letting your kids to play by the river and they all drown at same time...that must be soulcrashing.

So... Where the **** was Tyrone during all of this?
User avatar #62 to #59 - ArkansasDave (09/07/2012) [-]
He was busy getting his **** together. The ONE TIME he finally does, and he misses his chance to be a hero.
#63 to #62 - memescomefromb (09/07/2012) [-]
It's a damn shame.
User avatar #66 to #62 - Zeigh (09/07/2012) [-]
Nah man, Tyrone was too busy stealing the other kids **** from the shore.
