“Oh god, he’s clearly gone insane,” you’re probably saying. “He’s going after the blind?”
No, I’m not going after the blind. I’m just going after an organization that represents them: the National Federation of the Blind, who came out this week against hybrid cars.
Why? Because they’re too quiet.
From the article:
“We generally couldn’t sense that it was there right in front of us, which of course, if we had been standing in the road, would have been running right over us,” [Chris Danielsen, a 36-year-old NFB member] said.
“By the time anybody detected it, if we had actually been standing in the road, it would have taken out three or four people.”
Standing in the road, emphasis obviously mine, is something I always find those damn blind people doing. Just standing out there, in the middle of the road. Hanging out in groups of three or four people, always getting in the way. Those rascally packs of blind people are a dangerous bunch.
In other news, the National Federation of the Deaf has come out against reducing light pollution, because that would make it too dark.
