We've known for a while that, after electricity and gasoline, hybrids are powered by the crushed souls of the blind. Old news. That is until the hybrids go after our children. At least that's what the fearmongers at CNN would have you believe. The real story seems to be that a kid, not paying attention, turned in front of an oncoming Prius and slightly bruised himself. Just to round out the story they interviewed a hybrid driver that didn't hit anyone, but in order to make the story easier to follow for the average cable news viewer identified him as the man who ran into the kid. All hybrid owners look alike, right? (h/t Snep) [Source: CNN.com]
I'll bet that kid's bike didn't make much noise either, preventing the Prius driver from advanced warning that he was going to turn in front of him. Maybe legislation is needed requiring all kids bikes to emit a loud audio signal that says "I'M NOT TOO BRIGHT, I RIDE IN THE STREET AND DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO CARS, PLEASE DON'T HIT ME DESPITE MY BEING A JUNIOR ASS-HAT"
Damn kids- stay out of the street!
