Oh Stop it!

Penn of Denn
It’s people like Lauren Rosenberg, who disprove evolution. The Utah woman is suing Google Maps, because she got hit by a car, while following walking directions provided by the free online service. Yep, Rosenberg claims that by following the directions on her BlackBerry, she ended up walking along a rural highway without sidewalks and as a result was struck by a car. Not her fault, no sir, the lawsuit alleges that the accident was “a direct and proximate result of Defendant Google’s careless, reckless and negligent providing of unsafe directions. . .” Had nothing to do with Rosenberg being an idiot.
I understand that it wasn’t Ms. Rosenberg’s intent to get hit by a car, but nobody put a gun to her head and made her walk on a dangerous highway.
I recall as a kid, being told to go play in traffic, but even as a kid, I knew that might not be the wisest thing to do and if I had of done it and got hit by a car, my parents would have said, “Denn use your head.”
Maybe if we all used the sense God gave us, we’d stay out of trouble and off the road. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
