GTA teaches a 6-year-old to drive - General News | @ 04:58 PM MDT | By zombienm
Normally when the GTA franchise makes national news, it's for its violence and how it 'inspires' kids to commit violent crimes. That's not the case here, however.

A 6-year-old boy from Virginia says the game taught him how to drive. Determined to make it to school after missing the bus, the young boy stole the keys to his parents Ford Taurus and drove himself. He made it over six miles before finally crashing into a utility pole. He suffered only minor injuries.

I think the real question here is why the fuck was a 6 year old playing IV? Parents should be blamed, not the game.

I don't care why he was playing GTA.

The thing that bugs me is that by playing GTA, he learned to drive.


Do you change gears in GTA ? Do you have to use the clutch ?

No, so why the fuck is he lying.

Damn lying kid! I hope he drives off a cliff next time he goes in a car and says "lul gta taught me to drive. Im 6 years old. Arent I adorable?"

And since when does a SIX YEAR OLD want to go to SCHOOL? Shouldnt it have been "Oops! Looks like a missed the school bus! Guess I'm gonna have to stay home yay!"

and wait even more... SINCE WHEN THE FUCK DOES A SIX YEAR OLD PLAY GTA!!!!!!!!!!!

As sad as it is, there is such a thing as an automatic gearbox. Most cars on the road in America are set up that way, so I'm sure his parents' econobox didn't have a 5speed.
