Oh Subby, just when I thought I was a good person...

Did she leave behind a diary?

What can I say? I'm a sucker for a well-crafted Amelia Earhart joke.

With the sudden increase in the number of Priuses on the road, the road has gotten much more dangerous for pedestrians. One of the key senses we use when judging safety is our hearing, and electric and hybrid cars render even perfectly healthy hearing people just as helpless as the deaf.

I'm certainly not saying that electric and hybrid vehicles should be outlawed. Rather, they should be forced to generate additional sounds so that pedestrians can identify the vehicle before it ends up running them over.

Deaf people aren't safe crossing a road?  I thought they were horrible driving, but crossing a road is out of the question too?  Must be time to get them hearing-ear dogs.

/I have been scared by deaf drivers who are 'talking' with passengers while driving
//the whole needs both hands to communicate and to watch the passenger to get info just seems way more dangerous than texting
///Road with a deaf relative arguing in sign language, never again will I ride with her

NHTSA is about to finalize a rule on that very subject.

"The rule is required by the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act that was passed by Congress in 2010."

Nasty headline, subby.

Shouldn't it be "never heard it coming?" or is there some sort of meme I am not familiar with?

Subby's referring to Anne Frank, that blind and deaf girl.

I am familiar with the Anne Frank/Helen Keller joke. I have made it myself. But I am not familiar with the reversing blindness with deafness. That is a new one (to me). The hilarity of the internet meme has gone downhill.

You're right. Subby buried the lead a bit here - a much more important question is how she managed to be crossing the street at all with no legs. Was she riding the guide dog? Did the dog survive? If she was in a wheelchair, why didn't the chair's radar alert her to the car coming at her?

This "story" feels very incomplete.

Jokes that make no apparent sense are much funnier when the mentally retarded tell them, so thank you. :D

Pro tip: If you want to be "kind" in the future just answer the farking question, instead of acting like a hipster douche who thinks he is too cool to answer the question.  That is what you did. I just asked an honest question. I hope for your sake you don't talk to people like that in real life, when you happen out of your mom's basement.

Well, she should be crossing the road neither by intuition nor by sense of smell, because in pedestrian safety there is no replay.

Congrats. You are the first person I have put on ignore for being an absolute dumbass. You should have quit and moved on as soon as you didn't get the humor. Now everyone thinks you are a twat.
