Darwin Wins: Those damn shoes with the wheels in the back are dangerous for kids

You've seen them, those 8-year old flying through the mall, their parents nowhere to be seen, with nothing but a pair of ugly-ass sneakers on. And, if you're like my wife and I, you really hoped the kid would run into something and crack its head open.

Apparently, that stuff is happening. I'm personally more worried about the danger of a child being raised by a parent stupid enough to buy these things for their child and let them wear them places like the mall.

My favorite part of the article is that they have to cite a pediatrician to say that the things are dangerous. I hope an MD is not required to understand the physics of kid + wheels = doom.
