Don't tweet and drive, kids. You might end up like Dr. Frank Ryan, a famous Hollywood plastic surgeon who died after driving off a cliff near his Malibu home Monday. Ryan, known for working with celebrities such as Heidi Montag, was tweeting about his border collie, Jill, just seconds before the crash, the doctor's ex-girlfriend told People Magazine

It's great that the stupids are weeding themselves out.

Good, another idiot off the road. Some people just never learn, till it's too late.

Agreed. At least he didn't take any "innocent" people with him. I LOL every time I see some moron crash while texting.

Is it going to take some law that disables phones while driving to put an end to the fucking idiots who think they can actually drive while texting?

That stupid fuck could have easily taken out someone's father or mother on his way home from work, or a motorcyclist, or a group of cyclists or joggers. I'm not happy that he's dead but you'd think a surgeon would fucking know better. :| Tweeting about anything let alone his stupid fucking mutt...god damned that makes me mad.

He had a remembrance of such at some beach consisting of the people's faces he has worked on. Looked like Bioshock down there...

Who the fuck does that besides 18 year old girls.

Apparently, based on the replies to various threads here, much of ATOT does this.

Every time we have a thread about making texting illegal, we get dozens of "OMG! I can text without looking. It shouldn't be illegal!" types of replies.

How long before they mandate all cellphones go into airplane mode when moving in a vehicle? Basically no radio means no text/talk/http while driving. The ones playing bejeweled will still crash though. :D
