CELLPHONES IN NEW YORK--WHY DO THEY SEEM SO INVITING?
The above is pretty fucking absurd. It's footage somebody shot (on a phone of course) of pedestrians in New York who are so clueless that they won't let a fire truck with a blaring siren through. I count at least ten who are on their phones, merrily chatting away or texting as the red-engined beast attempts to get to whatever emergency awaits it. My favorite is the woman at the end crossing with her child. She holds the child's hand in one hand and her cell in the other. She's staring happily at her phone (possibly playing a little Downwell?) as the Firetruck almost runs them down. Jerks.
