There's Plenty of Stupid Out There!

There seems to be an extra dosage of stupid running around out there!


Another Stupid Thing!

I just saw a TV ad for a Jeep, self-starting car. Great idea! When you get in the car it is warm, defrosted, and ready to go. Problem is, if it is turned on, it is ready to go with car thieves too. You say, but the doors are still locked! Do you know how long it takes a car thief to unlock car doors? SECONDS! Or the thief can just break the widow and unlock the car – easy!

Is you life so complicated that you can’t sit in the car while it defrosts for one or two minutes then go?

There is a lot of stupid around!
