Driving all day. Attempts to blog and drive unsuccessful. More posts later.

If only there was such thing as a blog auto-pilot or something... You know, since we haven't quite developed the technology for a car auto-pilot.

If you find it difficult to blog and drive simultaneously then I would suggest you put down your beer thus freeing an additional hand.

Blog auto-pilot for tim wouldnt be too hard. Just set the thing to somehow automatically complain about Victorian speeding fines, praise Silvio and pick off a random "silly" story from the "The Other Side" sections of the site and everything would be fine.

Why yeah. And Tom has great suggestions on how to troll-- oops, I mean "comment" on auto-pilot.

What about a palm pilot? What a puss.

Somehow I can't imagine anyone writing an article titled "How to Blog While Driving and Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed Without Dropping Your Connection."

But just think how many hits they'd get if they managed to write an article like that!

Voice recogition software.....then your posts would look like this:


Turn on your blinker next time you asshat!

Iraq’s poor children no longer have those wonderful state-run institutions to look after them. The ABC’s The World Today reports:

In Iraq itself, child welfare groups are warning that the number of children living on Baghdad's streets has more than tripled since the end of the war. STUPID AMERICAN TOURIST! DID YOU SEE HIM ALMOST HIT THAT WOMAN CROSIING THE STREET? WE SHOULDN'T LET THEM DRIVE HERE! State-run institutions for orphans and other children suffered extensive looting during the war and most no longer offer shelter to vulnerable young people.


This is the ultimate variation on Mussolini’s punctual trains; say what you like about Saddam, but at least he offered shelter to vulnerable young people. YES, I'LL HAVE A BIG MAC MEAL - MAKE THE DRINK A COKE, AND A HAPPY MEAL WITH APPLE JUICE! DO YOU HAVE CHANGE FOR A TWENTY?

Psychiatrist Dr Mohammad al-Qurashi says most of the children visiting the centre are malnourished, 90 per cent are anaemic and half suffer skin diseases. HEY, YOU FORGOT THE NAPKINS DUMBASS!

These symptoms have only appeared since Saddam was removed, apparently. YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM ALREADY?

You can't drive and blog simultaneously? What sort of one-note hack are you?
