Most stupid invention. EVER!

LurkerGal 5 May 2005 29

Driving home tonight along Kingsford Smith Drive (about 7.45)and there was a complete TOSSER in a dark blue twin cab ute watching television. Yep, thats right. Driving and weaving in to MY lane, because he was laughing at “Everybody Loves Raymond”. (which basically says a lot in itself)

What sort of idiot decided it would be a good idea to put tvs in cars, under the assumption that there wouldn’t be any dickheads around that would decide watching it WHILE DRIVING was acceptable!!

These things need to be banned. This has got to be against the law, surely!

LG, a mite ticked and needing to vent.

Spiny, perhaps you should stay logged in when you’re having a go at people in future.

Things like this are forcing us in the direction of compulsory login.

“reap what you sow??” over the Simpsons?

*shakes head and keeps walking*

LurkerGal 3:43 pm 06 May 05

Hey Anon, to be fair, I watch a lot of Law and Order and other crime shows, but I don’t go around dismembering people (I often want to, but I also wanted to long before I started watching these shows…the old nature v nurture I guess).

So guru yu don’t mind your child disregarding your authority and to adopt the behaviour displayed on the Simpsons. Reap what you sow I gess.

GuruJ 2:03 pm 06 May 05

I would rather my child watched The Simpsons than just about any other show on commercial television.

Sure the modern episodes aren’t as good as the 90s ones, but it’s still an insult to group ELR with the Simpsons.

Thumper 12:12 pm 06 May 05

Funniest Home video should be banned internationally, except in the USA where its normal behaviour.

LurkerGal 11:46 am 06 May 05

Child knows ELR from ads and friends places. It is banned at my place! Along with Funniest Home videos and other similar crap. Alas, she does know the simpsons.

I couldn’t see the number plate – and child didn’t read it to me, so….

Spiny-Parrot 11:19 am 06 May 05

As you could see what was on the screen I would suggest the you would also be able to get the number plate. Simple let your fingers do the walking and your mouth do the talking.
Next time you see that ute I bet he won’t be laffing.
Your child knows Every body loves Raymond??? Simpsons to I am gessing…..sigh
What are such parents doing on our roads???

Thumper 11:02 am 06 May 05

Dear oh dear,

How are you bringing up that said child….

*g*

LurkerGal 10:50 am 06 May 05

Actually, mine child told me it was Everybody Loves Raymond…..

10:47 am 06 May 05

Um, if you were able to discover it was (puke) “Everybody Loves Raymond”, how safely were YOU driving? Sounds like you were watching TV to me.

Absent Diane 10:03 am 06 May 05

i don’t drive because in the imminent present we have no need for cars or transportation so I can’t comment.

LurkerGal 9:50 am 06 May 05

Yeah, my friend had a tv in his beemer that would only work when the brake was on.

I agree it’s fine for kids and stuff, but this guy was watching it while driving. It’s just so dangerous!

And he turned off towards Flynn / Charnwood. But I don’t know if that’s necessarily relevant….

GuruJ 9:25 am 06 May 05

You can play TV while driving, as long as the driver can’t see it (eg. see The Age).

Most responsible installations are either roof-mounted with a flip-down LCD panel or embedded in the rear of the front seats for the kids.

Mick 9:14 am 06 May 05

Pre-market TV screens in cars are wired in a way that they cannot be launched whilst the car is being driven (so I hear).
But of course anyone can now fit an after-market TV/DVD player and watch whenever they want.

Good for cricket.
