GPS in your car can hypnotize you

Hilarious! The world is definitely getting stupider.

I just saw the commercial for that new Lexus that can parallel park itself....Perhaps we'll have some folks climbing on top other cars.

Too much technology is not a good thing. The human race is inherently dumb and providing them with tools of convenience will, not only spoil them, but make them dumber.
BERLIN (Reuters) - A German motorist followed the command "Turn right now!" from his navigation system and crashed into a small toilet hut by the side of the road -- about 30 yards before the crossing he was meant to take.

The overly obedient 53-year-old from Freiburg drove his sport utility vehicle off the road onto into a building site, up a stairway and into the small toilet shack, police in the eastern town of Rudolstadt said Sunday.

It caused 2,000 euros ($2,500) worth of damage to the stairway, 100 euros damage to his car, and he was also fined 35 euros.

Earlier this month an 80-year-old motorist also chose to follow his navigation system and ignored a "closed for construction" sign on a Hamburg motorway. He then crashed into a pile of sand but neither he nor his passenger were injured.
