Boy, 12, drives pickup to flee bushfire

A 12-year-old in Australia grabbed the keys to his brother’s pick-up truck and drove himself and his dog to safety, escaping a fire that was lapping the family’s farm house. Lucas Sturrock was home alone on Sunday when the blaze approached his house. Ivan Sturrock, Lucas’ father, said the boy learnt to drive when he was seven.

That's why I have a profound respect for farmers, they might not have the knowledge deemed "appropriate" for convencional society, but still their knowledge is useful for day to day life and self sustainment, meanwhile there's privileged kids that can't cook an egg. I want this kid by my side to rebuild humanity after the apocalypse XD

City people might be more surprised by this than people who grew up having fun with a retired farm truck missing it's doors and acres of empty field to whip donuts in.
