Entitlement - the belief that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment.

+1 on nobody getting hurt/killed.

A neighbor rolled his Caddy SUV a couple years back. Spent the day out in the sun, then ended up at a bar nearby while his wife was out of town. He hopped a curb in a traffic circle and the embankment drop off allowed the vehicle to slow roll onto its side. He was going the wrong direction to his house, someone stopped to help and he persuaded them to give him a ride home for $100, leaving the Caddy in the ditch. Cops went to his house for a wellness check, he didn't answer the door. He called his lawyer the next morning, lawyer answered all the questions for the police, he never personally spoke with the cops. Tow yard released the SUV to the bodyshop/insurance company. Nothing to pursue after that, car was fixed then traded. My neighbor is retired LEO, he knew the procedures

Actually, I said he has a right to be private. As would I.

Why should he(or I) engage in any way with the people here about what happened?

If he is in contact with authorities then that is all he owes anyone. Timing may be questioned, but it still doesn't mean he needs to explain his decisions to anyone without a vested interest, like the insurance co, police, etc

A great example of this is the infamous fountain spin out. I still see non boaters on Facebook sharing the most recent dub step remix every few months. That go pro should have gone swimming when that happened.

It had all the viral ingredients, women in bikinis, fast boats and a crash!

This guy exploded on Tik Tok and its been a windfall for everyone. Truck broke down, he rides his skateboard to work while drinking Ocean Spray singing dreams by Fleetwood Mac. Mick Fleetwood did a tribute video to the guy AND Ocean Spray bought the guy a brand new truck because the exposure was so great. They said a superbowl commercial wouldn't have been as great as this 20 second video! I don't get it

I still laugh at the "What Is Love Dubstep" version of the video. My understanding is that none of the injuries were serious. You don't see remixes of the double fatal cat blowover from a few years ago. And, yes, the GoPro should have gone swimming!

It is odd that boat occasionally are left in unusual places after sunset.
