When NOT to Multitask

Heard about this story today while drivng the car and listening to the news radio show. 

It seems that a man was multi tasking when his obvious download of tunes for his IPOD was interrupted by running into a Hummer.  Guess what, he lost.  Now cell phones while driving, I don’t know about.  Drinking coffee or smoking a cigarette in the car, give me a break.  Even having a Whopper, and trying to do it with one hand….. You’re pushing it buster.  Using your laptop? WTF???? Sometimes you just have to appreciate Natural Selection.   In that Spirit I would nominate this man, for selflessly improving our species by removing himself from our midst for a Darwin Award.

  1. Working in tech support, I can personally vouch for the number of morons who call the help desk demanding assistance for the most inane task whilst driving. They are SO IMPORTANT that they must be on their computers non stop, and are infuriated when the agent will not assist them configure their email while operating a moving vehicle.

    I’m now waiting for the lawsuit filed against the driver of the Hummer by the family of the victim.

  2. Well, at least I don’t feel badly about having a cup of coffee on the ride to work anymore.

  3. It is a shame that we have become so callous about a human life, that we applaud a death because a fallible human made a mistake. And I can understand it too, it makes me sick to see jerk offs riding with phones to their heads putting all in their path in jeopardy of death or injury. So I am not sure of giving awards for dying because of stupidity, but their is just too much around at this moment in time. Just too much.

  5. This cartoon face is memorable for his muscled physique, and capacity to clean dirt.
    As the credits rolled at the end, the message of congratulations to Fox because of
    its historic run of the cartoon of 25-years and counting
    – the longest running American animated program and sitcom – emerged and was then an
    interesting message. The family is manufactured up of Homer Simpson,
    that’s the man from the home, he’s an overweight safety inspector in the cities strength plant,
    he often offers bad suggestions.

  6. I usually make my schedule on Sunday evening – I change things up
    and don’t perform the same schedule from week to week. Manufacturing and distributing frozen yogurt can be a struggle, and receiving a franchisee of a big and established brand is the better substitute for go into the industry. Keep it fresh and challenging ‘ Any exercise program that’s maintained more than 4-6 weeks will not be as effective in the long run.
