Stupid is as stupid does!

How many of you lot would drive blind folded?

Apparently there is a Bird Box Challenge which is to drive blind folded see here


Personally I think it is less of a Bird Box challenge more like an attempt for the Darwin Award.

Not looked at link but we used to do blind fold driving as part of fun challenge events, with codriver giving directions around a set of canes, usually holding a bucket of water....... Cheers

Slight difference JST is that the Bird Box Challenge is carried out on the public highway!

Wales 2007 Defender 90 Other CSW Willow Green

With the way some people drive, especially around the myriad of roundabouts around the Trafford centre in rush hours, which at times resembles a dodgem car fairground track, then I think a blindfold for some would be a benefit! For those who like Welsh Mountains and narrow boats have a look at my videos and photos at..

We do the same activity at the offroad centre I work at. But we ban the use of the words left and right. So they have the dded pressure of hearing a word and then working out it's new meaning. No water though. 110 USW

I think the vast majority of drivers have been doing that for a while here. Either that or they think they're driving scaletrix cars and the white lines should go down the middle of the car.

.... Shocked sorry folks that just slipped out. not sure if you're allowed to say that sort of thing anymore. I meant to say dashed line on tarmac used for separating carriage ways.

United States 

I watched a review of this film and it seems to be a propaganda piece like so much trash that comes out of Hollywood. Netflix is joining in the fight to force beliefs onto viewers with many of their shows. Pushing LGBTQ stuff as if half the country is gay, lesbian or trans, pushing climate change, ideals of racial inequality etc. Christian's are typically the bad guys in movies and criminals are usually white. In 2009 or so our government put out a homeland security ad to "if you see something, say something". It featured sketchy white men looking suspicious, looking like potential terrorists. The hero was some dark or middle eastern looking person in a suit etc.

I think most of the time you turn on a TV, you are being programmed. Dont forget that in 2016, Democrats elected Hillary Clinton to run as their presidential candidate. A very unlikable person who voted for the Iraq war in 2002. A person who covered up her husband's sexual crimes was suddenly the spokesperson for women and equality. Hillary could not have won without the media, polishing turds and putting whip cream on top to feed to the consumer.
