LOL Do people actually drive around with this much stuff attached to their windscreen?

Reminds me of a guy I once saw on the highway - his top dashboard was FILLED with JUNK- not like papers, or anything. Just random crap you might find in a garbage can (a light bulb is the one that stands out to me).

i have seen about that and then add about 3 laptops as their dashboard. this happens when they do reviews and testing on a new manufacturer car. i girl a dated had a brother that did this every day. he had to drive around 7-10k a week and test the car.

So since it's a "Screen" does that mean some of the wind gets through still? :confused: :laugh: ;)


I'd prefer a shield that prevents all wind from getting by :p

Hey that thing you're reading this post on is called - a screen.

Even some firewalls are called - net screens.

Just don't expect them to work on submarines. :laugh:

Yeah, but a screen lets some things through...thats why its a screen and not a shield. A net screen screens some traffic out and lets other traffic in. A computer screen selectively chooses different amounts of light to form a picture.

I guess you can argue that a windscreen lets light in and keeps wind out. But it doesn't screen wind...it blocks it all. And its called a windscreen, not a light screen.

Its just a funny word to me is all.

It's a form of ricerism. It's all pointlessly redundant. It's the same idea as a car with 20 fog lights, 5 tiers on a wing, or 300 stickers on the body. It exceeds excess.

Anything less than 16 GB of RAM in a personal computer is unacceptable. :)
