I was reminded of this ethical quandary while hanging out at the river this weekend: Are jetskis okay, or not okay? On one hand, I hate to deny anyone the scant amount pleasure we receive in life (that's not exactly true, but allow me to pretend it is for the sake of this particular argument). On the other hand, jetskiiers totally stomp my buzz, because a) they are loud, obnoxious, and overly rambunctious, and b) they're having fun that I'm not having, and rubbing it in my face.
SO! Here's your Blogtown Ethicist question of the day:
IS IT ETHICAL FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN YOURSELF TO RIDE THE SHIT OUT OF JETSKIS IN FULL VIEW OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT HAVING AS MUCH FUN ON THE SHORE?
