Sounds good to me. We use video games to train our soldiers to be cold and calculating. Driving games can be useful in the same way.

Did he use the blue shell on grandma?  Is that why she was knocked out?

A blue shell would have blown them all up. This sounds more like a strategically placed green shell.

My only defense is that I posted while waiting for coffee to brew. I hang my head crab in shame.

so.  my wife's grandfather is older than moses.  man is on oxygen for christ's sake. recently, they had a birthday party for him, and he drove from the town over where he lives to the in-laws.  i asked then "man, is he ok to be driving" and they are all like "oh he gets around fine".  couple weeks ago he was in a crash.  it was his fault.  it totalled his car, surprised he even lived.

why was the old guy on the road????

I've been run into by half a dozen teenage girls, but no senior citizens.  Just my personal experience.
Teenage girl backs out of parking space into the side of my truck, "I have to hang up now, some guy just ran into me."

Because nobody wants to deal with the tantrum when you try to take his keys away or take on the responsibility of making sure he's able to get food and to the doctor.

Did he powerslide to gain a speed boost?

After getting 100% completion on GTA Vice City... dont extract the audio files for the radio station and put them on your mp3 player to listen to in the car.

never came close to 100 percent on that game.  too much to do and tons of it sucked (and I was a grown-up with nowhere near that much time to kill).

DID pull the audio files for car listening tho.  STILL have a cd with FLASH FM on it.

Most of my life I've wondered "where the hell is the hidden camera".
I also used to think somebody had to be controlling everything behind the scenes, since I knew I couldn't be harmed I dared the devil, cursed the angels, and spat in God's eye.
I still do, but I'm pretty sure nobody is in control, and I could still get hurt.
As I wheelie my 'Busa at 70mph down a busy freeway, I can't help but set the delicate dead-man and do a quick "look Mom! No hands!!
Can't get hurt, it's all a computer simulation, if you are a "natural" the controllers like ya.
They like me.
