Call me a party pooper, but dying doesn't sound like a very good reason to make the news. Is our generation really so stupid as to engage in these sort of activities that they think it's fun? What has our generation come to? If this is what we are experiencing already, then I have grim outlooks on the future. Not everyone is senseless. Not everyone think Schoolies are a good place to spend time and money. I know that.
Lets be fair here. Not every person who goes to Schoolies is a total twat. But a handful of them certainly ruin it for everyone else. I'm going to be controversial here and ask, For what purpose are they alive for?
Well, I can't speak for every country, but a handful of Australian teenagers seem to be extremely out of their mind and senses (that is if they even have any). It may be quite obvious now that I have not been on Schoolies. Why? Because as mentioned before, I certainly don't see the point of it. I spent my time somewhere far away from that bunch and that area.
I guess a lot of people who went on Schoolies had a wonderful time without any hiccups/hiccoughs (or however you spell that word), but looking at the so called "news" has certainly made me think Schoolies is a moderately dangerous place with a few people who spoil everyone's fun by dying.
