    A Man Who Got a BMW for His Birthday Pushed it in to a River...

    MAN WHO GOT BMW FOR HIS BIRTHDAY PUSHED IT INTO THE RIVER BECAUSE HE WANTED A JAGUAR

    A young man in India who received a BMW for his 22nd birthday pushed it into a river because it wasn't the Jaguar he had been hoping for, police claim.

    Villagers in Yamunanagar, in the northern state of Haryana, were shocked to see a pricey white BMW 3 Series sinking into the Western Yamuna Canal. One witness called police, who sent a recovery team to make sure nobody was trapped inside.

    Police divers borrowed an earthmover and, with the help of locals, recovered the BMW from a patch of tall grass it was moored on. Authorities determined the car belonged to a man named Akash, reportedly the son of a prosperous local landowner.

    According to police, Akash deliberately pushed his new car into the canal.

    "Akash was demanding a Jaguar car from his father, but when his father failed to buy him one, he threw away his BMW in a fit of anger, Mukesh Kumar, a station house officer for the Chhachhrauli police, told The Times of India.

    There's no such thing as a "First World" or "Third World" problem. Cold War is over, and those terms are currently meaningless. And even if those terms still had any relevance, the concept would be fallacious anyway (fallacy of relative privation, to be precise).

    I would push it into a river just because it was a BMW.

    His parents need therapy. Why are they buying a young man a car? He needs to work at McDonalds. But they failed him a long time ago.

    Yes, they need a specific therapy though. Boot-in-the-ass therapy. Followed by six weeks of common-sense therapy.

    What a fine young man.

    Reminds me of a a time about ten years ago. I was in a Jared jewelers getting a new battery put in a watch. A mother was there with her son, who appeared to be about 16. He was sulking and whining more like a 8-year old because he didn't like like his birthday gift, a Rolex watch. He wanted a different one that was apparently considerably more expensive. They were there to get the band adjusted. From the sound of it, he was "stuck" with that Rolex.

    I've rarely wanted to slap someone more than this pudgy, spoiled jackass.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.
