I've driven so drunk before that I didn't remember where I parked the next day. It's not like it impairs your abilities so much that you can't function. Actually, texting reduces your reaction speed by 35% and drinking only reduces it by 12% so it was the texting that caused him to rear-end her. Not the drinks.
No you're retarded. All people react differently to alcohol, impairments range between 10% to 40%. And that doesn't count how many drinks, the speed you drank, the strength, and whether you ate or not, so throw your statistics out, they're useless. _______________________________ www.myspace.com/rapid99
Statistics are bullshit in this regard, I guarantee you it did not consider variables. They only have meaning when there's a group, because you find the mean, otherwise on an individual basis the variables are too great. That's what I'm saying. Anyway you are right that he implies the texting fucked him up. But if you drove so drunk you forgot where you parked, wouldn't you say that impaired your abilities a shit ton more than texting? ___________________________ www.myspace.com/rapid99
I do drink, a little too much on the weekends usually lol, but you have to admit that getting hammered can make you far more likely to cause an accident than texting. I don't know what level your statistic respondents had their content at, but I guarantee you a .24 is enough to completely impair behind the wheel. Maybe if you ever blacked out and woke up somewhere confused as hell and only remembering the very beginning of the night you might understand. _______________________ www.myspace.com/rapid99
Wow you don't even respond to the entire post. Way to snipe at an argument. Good Job! And no shit I know they were over the limit, if you read I said .24, which is 3x the legal limit and a norm in certain states that have chronic DUI problems. ________________________ www.myspace.com/rapid99
first off i'm not sure when this FML was sent in but as i currently live in Missouri I know for a fact that driving while operating any electronic devise is illegal as for you "Unregistered" next time you want to argue with someone make sure you don't base your arguement on an assumption. i didn't see any of these people say "i've never drank a drop in my life but i'm going to judge anyway". seriously? how do you know some of these people haven't gotten completely wasted and killed someone else? i mean if you are allowed to assume they have never dranken a drop in there lives shouldn't i be able to assume maybe they've killed or i don't know.. a bunch of kids? and before you comment (like i know you will) i have gotten hammered before and i've been driving for years so don't even start. and tyhillman to say that drinking doesn't do shit to your driving is probably one of the least intelligent things i've ever heard(or read i suppose). just slightly below this unregistered guy. how you can claim to drive so drunk that you don't even remember where you parked and then go on to say that drinking has no affect on your judgement is retarded. especially if your defense for said arguement is that its a short term memory loss, well clearly if the alcohol in your system is able to act as a depressant enough that the next morning you have no recollection of where you parked is it not at least plausable that... i don't know... maybe it would have an affect on your brain and thus you wouldn't be driving right? and before you throw your statistics again understand that for looking at a large group of people those statistics are great but for individuals they don't mean a thing.. i mean if 60% of people were lets say immune to the common cold that clearly means i am right because a majority of people are immune? not necessarily while it would be true that if someone was to guess if i were immune it would be the wise choice but as an individual i either am or am not. and even if your statistics showed that all those people could drive fine while drunk. the fact that alcohol can make you have " short term memory loss" implies that you could not be one of the people that are realatively unaffected by alcohol
You rear-ended her??? Sounds like a good night for you! Props, buddy.
