    I just heard on the news that a woman was arrested for breast feeding her child while driving and talking on her cell phone.

    What's the dumbest thing you have ever seen someone do?

    Ya Think, Tragic and stupid. Probably 'Tweeker'

    "You don't use a flammable liquid that's not designed for that," he said. "There's medicines you can get from pharmacies."

    Fire officials say it happened shortly after 9 p.m. when crews were called to 1023 Park St. for a woman who had been burned. According to the 911 run card, dispatchers learned almost immediately that the injuries happened as the victim was trying to kill lice with gasoline.

    Investigators said the fumes had built up in the apartment as Brooks let the gasoline set in. They were ignited by the pilot light of the nearby water heater.

    Firefighters arrived to a gruesome scene. Howard said Brooks suffered second- and third-degree burns over more than half of her body.

    Not only are some people stupid. . . I think, down deep, lots of them have a self-destructive streak that manifests itself.

    Picture this:

    Downtown 1 gets into Penn Station. We all get off and make our way to the turnstiles. Several of the turnstiles are blocked off due to construction. Woman decides she can't wait and proceeds to get on her hands and knees and crawl through a closed turnstile. Problem is it's totally blocked off and she can't go anywhere, forcing her to crawl back under the turnstile.

    Most of the stupidity I've seen involves driving.

    I've seen people come to a grinding halt on the freeway because they missed their exit. They check their mirrors, look around, and sit there trying to figure out how to get to the exit they just missed. For some reason, it didn't occur to them that the easiest/safest solution is to take the next exit, and back track to where they were supposed to go.

    I don't know if it's an LA thing or not. But there were quite a few occasions where I'm driving in traffic and the lead car just comes to a stop at the intersection.. when the light is green. The driver just sits there and waits until the light turns yellow, and then red. As I make my way up the line of cars, I notice the person is either talking or texting on their cell phone. Definitely a WTF moment. icon_lol.gif

    About the stupidest thing I ever saw was two old people - each one on oxygen - in a car at an intersection ----- SMOKING!

    By the way - they both looked like they were at death's door. The car windows were filmy and dirty - the people looked so unhealthy. I couldn't believe it.

    It's like my neighbors. They'll be the first to tell you the weight problems are due to genetics yet they each drink a couple 2-liter bottles of full-octane coke a day and smoke like stacks.

    Texting, reading books, doing something on their lap tops, reading the paper, playing with PDAs. People are idiots. It's really not surprising that they all drive into eachother during rush hour. If people would actually look at the road, they might see the two ton vehicle in front of them or the 6 foot + tall stop sign.
