A woman arrested in the early morning hours for driving the wrong way on I-75 turns out to be the first of a hat trick weekend (here are two and three) for wrong-way drivers, signaling a stunning return to form for last year's dumbest dangerous thing stupid and/or drunk people can do in their cars.

Is three a trend even if one person is responsible for two instances? A 15-year-old girl was arrested for helping make bomb threats to two Keys high schools; as with last week's Florida teen bomb threat, which involved Instagram, the girl left a trail of incriminating evidence on her cell phone, proving that Florida high schools clearly need to offer an elective about mobile technology.

Have we got any more "dumb kids" news? Absolutely. Check out these Arizona students who thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of themselves being unquestionably racist, then post it on the internet. Maybe they can do some kind of exchange-student program with the Florida kids who think talking about bomb threats via text message and Instagram is a good idea.
