PROOF! Texting while driving is dangerous.

Finally, we have the proof that we need. A recent study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute just confirmed that texting while driving is even more dangerous than previous studies had determined.

Here's the actual link to the story.

Is Virginia Tech a public school? I sure hope so. I hope that my tax dollars contributed to this study. And thank goodness they had the sense to do more than one study on this. Folks probably didn't believe the first study that confirmed it was actually dangerous to type messages on a phone while driving. Hopefully, we will continue with these studies so that everyone can come to a rational conclusion.

I hope you're picking up my sarcasm.

P.S. I wrote this entire blog post while driving, eating an ear of corn and crocheting a hat.

So, how does the hat fit? Inquiring minds want to know.

I love it when I can find somebody even more sarcastic than I am. The p.s. is awesome. How many stupidly needless studies like this are we paying for, anyway? Duh. You take your eyes off the road for anything while you're driving it's going to be a little dangerous. When will the mad spending stop?

Thanks for the hat, honey, but don't you think it might look funny to wear a crocheted hat in the summer? Also, there's a red splatter mark on it.

I am shocked! Shocked, I tell you. Shocked and outraged. Yes, shocked and outraged and maybe throw in a little appalled. Texting while driving is dangerous? Just who do these people think they are? But, do we maybe need a government study to verify the results of the studies already studied? Just to be sure?
