doglover: ransack.: jjorsett: doglover: We have to ban these dangerous automatic transmissions. A traditional clutch is all you ever need.

True. If he'd been driving a manual tranny, he'd have had no free hands with which to text.

If he was smoking a cigarette while driving a manual with no power steering, he would be the safest driver on earth.

Only if he had a gun and some road sodas


and no pants on

Vroom Vroom?

If the area between the bottom of the eyes and the bottom of the chin were gone, I'd have no clue that was a man. In 50 years they will have it perfected. Then I'll probably have sex with a guy. And never know it. Vaginal sex.

Also if she wasn't like top 10 google results for "manual tranny"


Doesn't look Mexican, though...

Well I don't usually GIS that before I mate with someone. Maybe I should though.

I know it's incredibly morbid but after this description:

"The 22-year-old student died in a horror smash on April 3"

I kind of want to see the carnage first hand.

peasants_are_revolting: I know this is Fark, but I might have gone with the Sad tag.


What if this person killed one of your family members whilst texting and driving?  Would you still feel the same?
 
2013-04-11 12:47:16 PM  
Wouldn't the phone screen lock after a little while - making the message, half written or otherwise, not visible?
 
2013-04-11 12:47:49 PM  
If only he had repented of media overload and used a cloud service, his final text message may have been preserved in the final resting place that awaits all of the true believers.

/or something

bdMurray: My autocorrect added the ' in I'm but not in I'll. Odd.


Because "ill" is a real word, "im" is not.
They're probably not quite smart enough yet to determine if you really mean ill or I'll just by context.
 
2013-04-11 12:49:51 PM  
Not to sound ghoulish or anything, but at least that guy only killed himself.

This happened about 2 miles from my house.

Oops.  Sorry your kid was a dumbass, lady.  Better luck next time, i suppose?
 
2013-04-11 12:51:03 PM  
Hmm... So, I count really one cause of his crash, and it wasn't texting.

Don't over-correct.

Seriously, there's no reason to suddenly jerk the wheel.

I don't think you really do. I heard it was a graveyard smash.

Who uses auto correct?


This guy did. He was in oncoming traffic, and he auto corrected into a tree.
 
2013-04-11 12:52:58 PM  
His stupidity was likely because he was only fed formula as a baby.

Yeah man I've been in these conversations and they were totally meeting at the mall parking lot to deliver a quarter of Alaskan Thunderfark/Headband chronic. A worthy cause, but one shouldn't look at screens while driving. Human brains aren't designed to perceive things moving at highway speeds. Nothing in nature goes 70 mph. Your brain is feeble and it takes 100% of your attention and cognition to even move your car in a straight line. Pay attention to what you're doing, you freak-asset chimpanzee.

darklingscribe: Nutsac_Jim: how do people receive all these unfinished texts?  Does the phone know it is in a car wreck and hit send?

The text was found unsent on his phone in the wreckage.

I wish articles like this gave more details on the crash itself. As it is written now it seems he drifted into an oncoming lane, realized what was happening and overcorrected.


Just as I thought: texting wasn't the issue.  A damn trashcan could have fallen off the back of a truck and he would have freaked out just the same.  Or the old "I crashed into the ditch because a dog came out of nowhere".  But yes, he could have been not texting and not had this crash.

CarrieWhite: Wouldn't the phone screen lock after a little while - making the message, half written or otherwise, not visible?


Yes, but when you unlock the phone, it opens back up to whatever screen was up when it locked. Text, contact list, facebook, whatever.
 
2013-04-11 01:11:44 PM  
I call FAKE. He presumably got in a crash while responding to that at 5:16, but at 7:13 a family member thought to check his phone and had the presence of mind to take a photo of it?  And don't say it was the next day, because even if it was at 100% charge when he crashed, no smart phone lasts 26 hours before dying.
 
2013-04-11 01:12:38 PM  
Too bad this didn't happen to the texting woman behind my car who needed to slam her brakes and turn into the median to avoid rear-ending me not once, not twice, but three times.

It sure is.  There's an app for everything these days.  I don't use it, but I know people who do and love it.  I agree with you, just call the person (when not driving of course).

It's great for texting and driving. :)

Predators, I mean. Things looking for you. Not pyroclastic flows or lightning. I mean animals on the veldt.
