    Didn't se a thread for this. Story was made on the 7th.

    Wow is all I have to say.

    That was quick thinking, and lucky. I hope the driver is punished somehow for leaving the bus un-attended. Thank God no one was seriously hurt.

    EDIT: Also, I'M OVER 9000. But I don't care! How strange, oh wait, it's not, it's normal.

    Why didn't the kid hit the regular brakes? I guess 11 is a little early to completely understand the workings of a vehicle.

    He is 11 years old, he probably couldn't reach them. Also he might have not known which was the break, out of fear of hitting the gas? But why didn't the emergency brake work? Also I bet he learned that move playing video games ;)

    Sounds like GTA helped in this one.

    Everybody knows it's not an emergency break - it's a "make the car smell funny lever".

    Oh and look no Jack Thompson around when this is obviously a case of when video games have a positive impact in society! :D

    Why do I get an unsettling feeling that the kid released the brake, jumped into the seat, yelled 'WHEEEEEEE!' and deliberately crashed it?

    Then, when someone runs up and goes 'Wow kid! You saved everyone!', he goes along with it...

    ...But that's because children are normally damned devious. DEVIOUS I SAY.

    Since when do you have to push the button to engage it? The button is only for releasing it when engaged in every car I've seen.
