I just love stories like this.....
FAIRBANKS -- A 34-year-old Fairbanks man who enjoyed riding on the hoods of speeding vehicles was found dead along a rural road, an apparent casualty of an unsuccessful "car surfing" venture, Alaska State Troopers say.
A woman with Retynski told his family that she had "lost" him the previous night. The pair were headed in a truck toward the Retynski family cabin near the east end of Chena Hot Springs Road.
The woman looked for Retynski but was unable to find him so she headed to a nearby campground for the night and contacted Retynski's brother.
News of Retynski's death was not entirely unexpected.
"This is Roman," [his mother], Ruth Retynski said. "He was the daredevil of the family. I know when he was flying off the hood, he didn't think he would die, he was just thinking, 'This is going to hurt.' "
"When he was flying off the hood"!!! How hilarious is that? This family just lost a member yet, they are so casual about it. You have to assume there's some mental retardation or inbreeding at play here.
