    Texting While Driving FAIL of the Week

    And the bastard lived. Anyone who texts and drives (plays with the radio, talks on the phone, shaves, handles a big gulp, ect) should be sterilized before they can breed into the world. If you cause an accident while doing said things, instant and permanent removal of license in all 50 states.

    Wall Outlet With Built-In USB Charger

    These things are an ok idea. I don't much care for energy efficiency. When these finally catch on in a big way, (new houses all having them) they will probably be pulled from the market after someone's crotch fruit sticks a car key in one and burns the house down. I imagine there is some...

    Samsung Reaches 1TB Per Disk Platter

    I generally don't care about the speed of the drive. 5400 rpm is good for movies / music. I'd be weary of putting anything I care about on a drive that size without an equal size backup. I've lost one to many home videos to hard drive crashes. (I was young and stupid about backups)

    Deal with lead on a daily basis here. I have for 20 years. Never once score high on the tests they give me. No gloves, respirators, or eye wear. My dad doesn't either, he's worked at the same place for 35 years. Gun range FTW. non-updated filtration system. Grandfathered into every EPA law.

    LEDs Filled with Toxic Substances

    It's just a study in California. They are kinda wackjob crazy out there so I'm just going to dismiss this. Kind of like lead. Unless you are eating it, no real harm. Can't we give California to Mexico or China?

    Automobiles May Prevent Drunk Driving

    It's crap like this on why I don't buy modern cars. Ever have an airbag pop going down an interstate? Sensor malfunction. I've also had ABS modules fail (not as bad, just have to pump the brakes) People forced to buy crap like this will make me rich disabling it.

    Parents Start to See TV, Internet The Same
