coldcuts: I don't believe this. I think this was a set up, possibly by some well-meaning folks, to warn of the very real dangers of texting.1. the message is too perfectly cut-off with the obvious 'tw-'2. when you type //ill// on an iphone, the default is to auto-correct to //I'll//. The texter would have had to block the auto-correct (or spent a lot of time typing /ill/ for the phone to have learned that as a default.3. Likewise, //seeya// auto corrects to //seems//
doglover: coldcuts: auto-correctWho uses auto correct?
gambitsgirl: 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.It wasnt this exact one but maybe this will help. My friend, a firefighter, was called to one like this Saturday and he finished the story for me....... So she was texting and drifted left. She didn't even know the Doolie hauling the horse trailer was there when her Accord hit it in the fortified front end crumpling the driver compartment into a flat surface. The force of the engine crushing her splattered her into the back seat so he had to quite literally scoop what was left out of the car after he used the jaws to cut open the crumpled remains. Thank God her 5-MONTH-OLD was in the right side of the car and in a child seat so they just hosed her off and sent her to the hospital where she was ok.
ransack.: 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.
ransack.: I think it says seeya sqon. Also, it's drug-dealing dialogue.
CarrieWhite: Wouldn't the phone screen lock after a little while - making the message, half written or otherwise, not visible?
abhorrent1: Good. Fark people that text and drive. They should all meet this fate.
ransack.: Zombie DJ: Ill TwW is next to E on the keyboard.I'll text you was probably it.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.

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