    Default I'm An Idiot

    I missed getting into a potentially horrific accident today by about two feet. Slammed on the breaks, left some sexy tire marks on the pavement, and probably gave at least two people in front of me a heart attack.

    I had this incredibly brilliant idea that I could turn my phone sideways and lean it against the plastic covering the gauges in my dashboard to make my brutal twelve minute commute to the office more bearable. You know, that way I don't have to take my eyes off of the road much and I can watch movies on Netflix. Which I'm sure is not only illegal, but dumb.

    But that's not what almost got me killed today. The movie I chose was Little Big Soldier.

    It's a Kung Fu action movie with subtitles.

    I'm an idiot.

    You may be an idiot, but that thread you made about Dark Souls was fantastic. I laughed non stop while reading your post then laughed even harder at the video the other guy posted. My abs still hurt today. Please do more game reviews!

    Currently 34 states have a TWD ban while driving. Only 9 states have a ban on handhelds in general which I'm thinking this would fall under. Even so if they could prove that you had your smartphone on the dash and that it distracted you from driving you would certainly get a reckless driving charge with a increased fine.

    I've got all kinds of data on wrecks and fatalities, along with studies if you would like any reading material. We did a debate in Comp 2 last quarter and my pro group and the con group actually did a discussion on this subject.

    But yes, you are an idiot. Many people on the road are already bad enough drivers, we really don't need to add to the challenge.

    You're only an idiot if you do it again. We all do stuff that it takes a close call to realize it was a bad idea.

    I just read while sitting at red lights.
    I live my life with bold enthusiasm tempered by the hope that when I die it won't be reported in News of the Weird or the Darwin Awards.

    Some people are forgetting that there is no way in hell I'd do this again and that was kind of the point. I did something dumb and instead of say, getting thrown through my windshield or hurting someone else I lived to learn from it. Don't watch subtitled action movies while driving. That's all I'm sayin'.
