This has been done for Generations. And every few years, someone gets killed and the news covers it.

No it has not been done for generations, teenagers used to try become pro athletes, rappers, and rockstars, not "influencers."

Oh, stop. Were you a Native, you would know better.

Yeah son, rode the R train to school every morning and none of us considered getting on top, we did typical dumb teenage shit like drinking 40s and smoking pot, not death defying stunts despite the fact we saw Jackass at way too young of an age.

I rode the train to school every day as a teen too. I didn't surf on the subways but you can bet your ass people talked about it and knew what subway surfing was.

Just because every teen didn't do it doesn't mean none did.
