I do like it when I get the opportunity to highlight someone who’s just really fucking stupid in a really frivolous and meaningless way. Often when I’m compiling material for a blog post or a TFU Friday video it’s fairly heavy or at least contentious.
But some people are stupid, pure and simple. I like to keep my moments of stupidity private. I certainly don’t do things that would draw the world’s attention to my idiocy. Not so, Lauren Rosenberg of Park City, Utah. She used Google maps to get walking directions. All fine so far. Then the directions she was following essentially suggested she should walk down a highway that didn’t have a footpath. But that’s OK because she isn’t a moron.
Oh wait, yes she is.
This moron walked into traffic on a highway and surprise, surprise, she got hit by a car. That’s stupid and embarrassing but if that was the end of it I’d cut her some slack. Everyone does stupid things sometimes.
That wasn’t the end of it.
This unbelievable fucking moron thinks she now has the right to sue Google because she’s stupid enough to walk onto a highway. If she was dead she’d be a sure thing for this year’s Darwin award but she’s alive so she’s a prime candidate for most frivolous lawsuit of the year. I’ll go out on a limb and say she’s going to lose the case, not least because Google include a disclaimer about this sort of thing.
So she suffered a painful accident. She’s a laughing stock around the world. And I doubt she’s learned anything by it. Stupid people are like that.
