There’s a nonsense “hip” thing going on in Boston. Since Boston has ben experiencing really harsh snowy winter and is already 8 feet deep and counting, some local Boston residents decided to be adventurous and just outright stupid.
Some people are doing a “dive” in the snow and has picked up pace. It has become outrageously popular and dangerous that the Mayor in Boston, Mayor Marty Walsh held a conference and requested every daredevils out there to stop their nonsense.
I would understand getting in your ski suit and actually ski through the neighbourhood for kicks or go sledding but who dives in a snow wearing only their underwear? It’s bad enough that they may get pneumonia or frostbite and even hit a sharp, hard ice and die. Don’t they know that? Are these stunts brought about being snowed in, just being stupid, or adrenalin really pumping and diving out on the snow would help? Or all these for popularity’s sake – a few seconds of fame in the social scene? I don’t know about you but I call those stunts “STUPIDITY AT ITS BEST!”
