A really silly question
« Reply #15 on: May 12, 2008, 07:02:20 PM »

I saw the most common causes of distracted driving and talking on a cell phone was 5th or 6th.......more people crash because they're
1.  Talking to other passengers
2.  Fiddling with the radio or CD
3.  Eating
4.  Putting on makeup

Maybe instead of "Whips" on the Speed Channel, they can have "Miracle Whip" if Snotty's on the show that week !

So if it's against the law to drive while talking on a cell phone (in Joisey now), what about at night in the dark? Or holding a transistor radio up to your ear? Or holding a bandage to a head wound while driving? Or how about just listening to a gabby wife on your cell....you can't possibly talk then.....
How will the average cop be able to stand in court and say "I saw him talking on the phone"?

I think causes of crashes 5 thru 10 were
 
5. Drunk
6. Schnockered
7. Soused
8. Boozed up
9. Smelled like a brewery

In order to bring this thread back on track, I had the u-joints done yesterday at the driveline shop.  Cost was $70.94 for both to be replaced!   Guys, can we try to keep the posts somewhat on track so that our search archives won't be full of posts that don't relate to the search topic?

it that's the way you like them, then you need to go to John's Burgers on F St.    most places put 1 or 2 strips of bacon on there, but these maniacs put about a 1/2 pound on it......dang it's good !
 
Oh, did you thell them Steve?  Fogel and I went to John's in East BAkersfield in his Hemi GTX - I was driving.   However, do you know how embarrasing it is to climb into a Hemi GTX, then get out and push it to jump start it in front of the people erating at John's????
 
Damn dead battery!!!  
 
At least Steve paid for the lunch!!!
