I can't believe people text when they drive Talk about unnecessary and unsafe. Do people text these days while they're doing anything and everything? Twitter updates on your bms? Tks 4 sharing.
Here's the video. Made me tear up actually.

I used to have to drive (gotta love budget cuts) to my company's US headquarters with my boss fairly often. When he wasn't making me listen to Barry Manilow or Anthony Robbins (swear to God) he'd either be Blackberrying email or on his cell.

That 3rd driver really sucked. He wasn't even texting.

He was probably drunk, that's why his reaction time was so slow...

I think he was speeding while changing a CD and talking to a passenger but nice guess on the drinking, he's Welsh.

There was no passenger. The Welsh don't drink?

He was saying that we're brainwashed, as if nobody here has given any logical or intelligent consideration to the matter at hand. Quite the opposite, I spent the better part of 2-3 years working on this stuff.
Well, that's fair enough. Can I ask you, with regard to a lawyers' reading materials on drunk driving, are libertarian arguments considered?

The truth is that this is one of those polarizing issues that often results in caricature arguments from either extreme, so in my view, you rarely get good, constructive arguments made.

I think libertarian arguments are considered insofar as there are constitutional issues involved (with respect to things like privacy and the taking of bodily fluid samples for example), but obviously these are more nuanced than what Hyper here has been arguing in a rather hysterical manner. I think that you could probably appreciate them and I think even the opposition does, because they are generally well-reasoned and have a solid basis.

I have said several times that I do not quote Journey lightly. Quoting Journey requires a certain gravitas.
