1 fr th rd

A very happy sixth birthday to Normblog. And on this fine day, Norm brings us this news:

A new study shows that 'when the drivers texted, their collision risk was 23 times greater than when not texting'. The lesson? You shouldn't text while driving. Well, I'm glad that's settled.

Yes, but we mustn’t forget the converse finding: when texters are driving, their typo rate is far greater than when not driving, as indeed is their risk of failing to complete their text message owing to involvement in a traffic accident.

Similarly, you shouldn’t drive and drink: there’s a far greater risk of spilling your pint.

(I know, I know, bad taste…)
