TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (177)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Wednesday, July 23; link good at time of posting):
An Australian man's dare went horribly wrong when he tried to play chicken with cars on a freeway wearing only his underwear. The 18 year old was critically injured after being hit by a four-wheel drive on a freeway in the southern city of Melbourne in the early hours of Wednesday, police said in a statement.

"Police are dismayed at the utter stupidity of a man who decided to play chicken on the Tullamarine Freeway," the statement said.
