re: The greatest pool ever? - Tiger JJ
Must be the same technology they use in the O show in Vegas. They go from running around on stage to somebody diving into it from 100 feet up in like 30 seconds. [link=(http://www.blackplanet.com/JerseyTiger/)]LINK[/link]...

[quote]Is it really that important to you to text while you're driving?[/quote] You've already ceded the philosophical argument if this is your starting point. Is it that important to you to be out of your house between 2:30 and 4:30 AM? I'm sure for the majority of people it isn't. So maybe we s...

re: A nationwide ban on all cell phones while driving? - Tiger JJ
[quote]Supposedly it has cut down on traffic accidents, but I don't have the data at hand. [/quote] Well, the politicians certainly have an incentive to say it worked no matter what. Do you know if traffic accidents/fatalities/etc. jumped sharply with the advent of cell phones?...

[quote]Then you either misread me or I did a poor job of explaining myself. Of course I could be persuaded. And once again, link the decades long, comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional studies you referenced earlier. I'd like to see what they have to say. [/quote] I didn't reference them. I was sim...

re: A nationwide ban on all cell phones while driving? - Tiger JJ
[quote]think you're way overstating exactly how authoritative this study is. [/quote] Which study? Numerous studies have shown very limited impact - if any - by anti-texting laws on car accidents/deaths. I get what you are saying, but I'm not willing to just willy nilly continue to give away f...

[quote]I don't think it's provable in any truly accurate sense. [/quote] So, comprehensive, years-long studies performed across dozens of jurisdictions in pre and post ban regimes would not be "provable"? Shit, what would EVER be provable to you? [quote]I live in Los Angeles. Driving safely he...

[quote]They're so obsessed with wanting people to be punished for breaking traffic laws that they can't function. [/quote] This is one dynamic I've really become attuned to since I had children.
