Some Olympic sports intrique the viewing public back home, but Going 90 miles per hour headfirst on tiny sled does not. Welcome to Skeleton.
With the final Skeleton runs on NBC primetime Thursday night, Twitter had a chance to react to how scary sliding down a narrow ice track is.

Only Lindsey Lohan in Mean Girls can truly express how scary the sport is.
Those who do skeleton are a different kind of brave breed #Olympics 💀❄

Yoooo, skeleton in the Olympics is crazy. Imagine sliding down a ice tube at 80 mph on your FACE!

This user came to the realization about just how dangerous the sport can be.
Things I would rather do than the skeleton:
1. Play in traffic
2. Change all my passwords
3. Eat Tide pods
4. Go to the DMV#Olympics

This list of things they'd rather do seems fair and definitely correct.
It sounds like the internet wants to leave the aptly named Skeleton to the professionals.
