Words of wisdom from a 2-year old

Surprising?

Cell Phone Use Quadruples Car Crash Risk - Yahoo! News

I wonder about the lady I saw on 101 the other day swaying from side to side at 65mph, talking on her cell phone and putting on eyeliner (no kidding!). Chances of her NOT getting in an accident are minimal, and then she won't need the eyeliner.

One of the most fascinating metaphors dealt with the speed with which all this takes place in saying that it was like hitting a bullet with a bullet and then filming it all from a third bullet.
