    Talent or stupidity?

    Driving along edgeware road I saw cyclist weaving about zooming through red lights nearly hit a parked van. Typical cyclist you might think then I realised he was texting on his phone as he rode along. My dilemma? Do I admire the dexterity and multitasking skills or wonder at the unbelievable stupidity of some people?

    Yes.
    The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the goverment.

    Re: Talent or stupidity?

    Admire or could you be a bit jealous of the multitasking talent?

    As far as stupid - there are too many stupid people in the world.

    And I'm assuming this cyclist was young?

    you've heard of young & dumb - we've all been that...

    I use to ride with no hands for miles.
    now I think OMG - stupid...

    I suspect falling off and smashing his phone might ultimately be the cure.

    I crept passed a motorist in slow moving traffic today in N. London, who was reading his paper that was laid over his steering wheel.

    They're tossers.
