Ah, to be young and dumb. If there's one thing we've learned through our years on this earth, it's that situations that involve towing someone behind a vehicle are usually very, very bad ideas.

Take these Ohio yokels, for example. With plenty of flooded fields to play with, they hitched a line to the back of a pickup truck, put a guy on a wakeboard, and towed him along. This was done in December, when the temperature was a frosty 47 degrees, according to the video's description. Perhaps the young men involved in this video are distant relatives of these Russians.

Before you scroll down for the video, be warned, there's a bit of salty language at the end. Also, don't try this at home. Hop below for the vid.
