Take Knowledge to the Extreme

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has taken your tax dollars and used them to create a weird ’70s looking website on ATV safety. Why? Because people are killing themselves. There were 136,100 emergency room visits casued by ATVs in 2004 alone. Now, internet assholes or no, we don’t want people killing themselves on ATVs, but we do have to laugh at the website’s slogan:

“Before you hit the trails, take knowledge to the extreme”

Are they trying to make people think ATV safety is lame? Extreme is so over…even the backlash against extreme is over. If Tickle Me Elmo is “Extreme” nothing is.
