And you thought talking on your cell while driving was bad….

Last week in Anchorage Alaska, a trial began in which a man is charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of a couple who were killed when his truck crossed a double-yellow line and rammed into them.  The reason for the 2nd Degree charge isn’t that the accused was on his cell-phone, but that he was watching a DVD on a dashboard console while driving.  (Road Trip, according to the prosecutors.) In addition to the DVD player, he also has a Playstation 2 hooked up to the dashboard console.. How’s that for safe driving?

    Yeah, I’ve found that I drive a bit erratic while playing Playstation’s Dance Dance Revolution.

    Now there’s a mental image that’ll take some scrubbing to remove.

    Well sure, it’s not like you can be expected to be watching the road while you’re watching such a cinematic masterpeice.  I know I always lose myself in the complex nuances and………woo boobies!
