THINNING THE HERD: Deaths From Texting While Walking Spike

The number of pedestrian deaths and injuries has risen dramatically as a result of texting while walking.

The obvious dangers of texting while driving have been the focus of  nationwide public service announcements, but now the dangers of  distracted walking are coming to the forefront.

The number of pedestrians who died rose from 4,109 in 2009 to 4,432 in 2011 and an additional 69,000 injuries, according to a study published by  the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    Texting and iphones will kill the human race and face to face human interaction. Quite sad and stupid!

    I love it. Encourage libtards to express their feeling while crossing busy streets. Make the cars stop for you, since you are so special.

    • Brilliant!

      I agree. Especially since only libtards who have smart phones.

    It’s just a matter of time before we’re the only ones left and the libtards have made themselves extinct. Then we can arm our children and get rid of the police force to save tax payers a ton of money.

      If they were not recruiting through our public schools, they would already be extinct.
      I like the dream you are expressing though.

    Every once in awhile we must have a “Darwin is thinning out the herd” story to remind us that it isn’t “survival of the fittest” , but “survival of the least stupid”. Text + walk = die.

    You have to admit, it is pretty funny watching these people fall, run into doors and walls, walk out in front of traffic, etc. The not so funny part is the people that are paying the price for the texters stupidity!
    My son and I a few months ago at the local post office watched a young woman texting walk into the kiosk desk (Guess she thought it would move for her). She then ran smack into the door. (Guess she thought it was an auto door or that someone would open it for her) She then walked right into the bushes and then fell off the curb (Guess she thought the bushes would move and a magical ramp would appear where the curb was) She finally made it to her car brushing herself off and looking at her bloodied arm and leg. We drop our boxes off and left. Low and behold, who is sitting in front of us at the parking lot exit with both wrist on the top of her steering wheel still texting? The same young woman. She suddenly pulls out and smash, a Toyota Tacoma T-bones her right in front of us and spins her BMW around twice! (Guess she thought everyone would look out for her and stop even if she did not have the right away)

    Just wait till Obama and his minions manage to crash the dollar with all that printing of fiat money. You will really see the thinning of the herd then. All those who depend on government in the cities will find themselves with no food available, no gas for their cars and not enough police to protect them from the rioters that will steal everything they own.
    Think of the Los Angeles riots or Katrina nation wide.

    That makes it a self-limiting disorder doesn’t it? At least this way, they aren’t fooling with their electronic baby sitters while driving a car. THAT potentially hurts others, But, they can off themselves all they want. No down side here.

    I imagine among libtards, deaths from chewing gum while walking would spike, too. So, where’s the down side to that?
