Yea, I know that this one’s a bit hard as the AI has difficulty with such abstract concepts, but it is possible.

Sad – sad phone junkies.
I touch mine ( phone ) 5 minutes daily on average, so my so called digital well-being are off the chart.

But today i was almost rear ended again, so when i heard the tires and ABS working on the car fast approaching i went “not again” but the kid came to a stop a few feet from my car.
When i soon look over my dashcam footage i do expect to see the kid use a phone.

Whydya think I usually take a coupla buses to work, even though I can take a car and get there in much less time?

I was actually in the bus in question in a bus vs car incident (knocked off the car’s mirror). The busdriver pulled over to see where the car was, expecting the car’s driver to follow and either wait for the cops to write out a report, but… nothing. Car just kept going. Busdriver goes outside, waits, looks, walks to the corner where the incident happened, looks around. Still nothing. After a few min, guess he finally figured, f’it, I’m going, and did. Hey, great, at least we all didn’t get bounced to another bus.

Even then, while I’m on the bus and am usually doing a puzzle or just watching the scenery pass, most people got their faces almost pressed up against their phones.

One gril that was sitting in front of me (my seat was facing forward, hers was facing the center aisle, so I could see what she was doing) was busy taking selfies, looking at others’ selfies, watching commercials for make-up or something, over and over (either she was watching the same commercial over and over, or the one commercial was long and painfully repetitive), doing such vapid things that I could actually feel my IQ draining away, point by point. I felt like HAL at the end of “2001”…

Yea, some of us likely shared the challenge that searches for this sort of thing turn up only either memes or stock photos of people pretending to use cellphones while they drive, bike, or walk, but I’m going to choose Lightbringer’s buzzer-beating entry with the fake chasm in the street Smile .

Here’s my usual final four:


This last thing isn’t directly related, but it turned up while looking for photos this week. THIS is why it’s stupid to terminate guard rails above-ground; it misses the whole point of the thing.

I’ve seen the stories and pix/video of the gril who fell into a fountain, someone else who dropped into a manhole, etc., but nothing much was online anymore.

So, lessee… Image King again, huh? Crown

Nasty cold winter weather lately, so while the idea of marinating in a fæcal-bacteria frappe isn’t all that appealing, the idea of a nice cool water-park sounds fun.

So… water-parks!

So let it be written, so shall it be done.

Denmark are so cold water parks have to be indoor, even during summer.
And they are so small the rides have to be on the outside.

I have hard time imagining that it can be a enjoyable ride in winter, or maybe they run more than normal amounts of water on the rides, and hotter than normal too.

Found this shiny water park guest,,,,,, blinding Steve
There is some water park there too, but BOKEH Big Smile But even with another aperture setting on the camera and framing, its probably not the background you notice first.

Thanks!

Here comes the hard part...

What should I ask everyone to post pics of?

I know.

There's a BLF thread about celebrities that have passed away.

I would like to see pix of celebrities (alive or dead) that you actually like.

Unfortunately, under the “dead” category. (Forgot it was a choice of alive/dead.)

Dead in one universe, but alive in the real world.
