    The sheer stupidity and callous disregard for life, is appalling...mind-numbing... unbelievable... beyond that, I am at a loss for words...

    No, I think you expressed yourself pretty well.

    Reads like the Darwin Awards, which last I checked was still going strong.

    The first time my cell phone rang while I was driving, I answered it. In a matter of seconds I realized that I could not pay attention to the conversation and drive a car (I missed my left turn opportunity). I wouldn't even try to look away from the traffic to punch in letters to make a text message. Now, I find myself silently screaming at people, "Everyone else in your life can wait until you park the car!!!"

    Are you suggesting that I am not screaming at the fools silently? :D

    Because they are in a different car from the one that I am in and can't hear me, anyway.
    No reason to hoarse my throat for somebody that can't hear me.
