Walt is trying to give me nightmares...

I had told y'all before that I think Walt is giving me strange dreams. But now, I'm getting prepared up for a bad one.

Walt sent me a video that is quite chilling. In fact, it is difficult to watch. So, I figured I'd share the love, and post it.

It is an "anti-speeding" commercial from Ireland. Whataya' think? Would something like this be effective? Or, is it too "over the top?" I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

I'll warn you again...this is not easy to watch.


  1. Yeah, the commercial is hard to watch but the faulty assumption/logic behind the ad is worse. Speed, like guns, doesn't kill. Stupidity kills. This has long been a hot-button of mine -- sorry for taking up your space with a mini-rant.

  2. Buck, no need to apologize for taking up "my space." It's not really mine. I do not pay one fat nickel for it, so it belongs to everybody.

    Yep, Stupidity is almost ALWAYS the culprit. Thanks for the input.

  3. Not sure if this would help showing this or not. Having worked in fire prevention, folks (esp younger ones!) get what I call the "It can't happen to me" syndrome. So no matter how much you talk about smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, seat belts, etc, people always think it happens to the "other guy". Maybe I've been around to many wrecks and fires, that I plan on it happening to me so maybe I can minimize the loss. Seen some wierd stuff over the years.....


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
