Quote from: brig on March 31, 2019, 02:11:24 PMI get that. Your concern is that he's talking while he's driving. He DOES pull over to read his comments. I'm not sure talking while driving with your youtube live streaming, is any different than talking with passengers in your car. What do you think? It is illegal to talk with your cell phone at your ear, or to text message while driving in the US.
Quote from: albrecht on March 31, 2019, 02:31:57 PMI think experience trumps even preoccupation in some circumstances. We worry about sharks, terrorism, etc but statistically we are more in danger on the road from someone looking at their phone, putting on makeup, drunk, or whatever. Having said that, I have no statistics to prove this, I actually would feel safer with some middle-aged truckdriver who had a few beers driving his car home than some kid who just got his license. I don't know the standards but I think you are correct that most States have passed laws about cellphone use when driving. Not sure though with all the new maps, radio, etc systems in dash or mounted dashcams, live streaming, etc. I think there were some studies that claimed even talking to people was distracting.My view is that everyone should drive like they are criminal or a spy. My theory means pay attention, check your six, look out for police, notice other driver's behavior. keep checking what's far ahead as well as closer, obey traffic laws since you don't want to draw attention, maintain your vehicle, know where you are going, etc.
Quote from: brig on March 31, 2019, 02:40:56 PMWhile I agree with your theory, I would add, good luck with depending on that in real life, in all cases. One other comment, Anthonys phone IS mounted on his dash, and he is also uses the GPS instructions to get across the country, which could also be considered a distraction, but in real life, it's what people do. They also eat and talk while driving. Sad but true in real life.
Quote from: albrecht on March 31, 2019, 02:48:19 PMI think the safest driving I ever did was many years ago when my old truck couldn't pass the new emissions so I had expired tag and didn't want to get a ticket. I was vigilant. Had it down about what lanes to use, where cops were, maintain speed, etc. That's when I came up with my theory of driving. It also can help keep you alert. You can play games, like pretend you are a spy or someone is after you, that will keep you less distracted. Try to recognize vehicles, memorize license plates, notice odd activity, look out for tails, take a different route home every day, don't rely on GPS but learn the area, etc. Yeah, now I see that he was not driving when talking. I hope he and all stay safe. I'm not sure what to make out of this roadtrip or him but wish only the best.

Quote from: albrecht on March 31, 2019, 11:30:34 AMDon't hit a taxi, destroy your XM radio and wind-shield in a rage, and have some, non-described in story, "item" in your trunk that alerts police interest.
Quote from: brig on March 31, 2019, 01:44:43 PMI don't really understand why Miller doesn't seem to like Anthony anymore. Anthony is buying a nice new Suit, to visit Arts grave, wants to meet Heather, if she's agreeable to that, and wants to buy Milluh a Miller.
Quote from: albrecht on March 31, 2019, 02:08:50 PMMy only concern is possible distracted driving. Even a small car is essentially a deadly weapon, as Muslims have shown us. It is apparently safer to drive drunk than be on the phone/camera while driving, not that I'm advocating drunk driving either. Just recently happened. Tragic. Interestingly accident was apparently caught on camera--- from a gun store, of course. Texas baby!
Quote from: Walks_At_Night on March 31, 2019, 11:19:21 AMWell this has taken a strange turn...............
Quote from: brig on March 31, 2019, 03:54:17 PMWith all that said, as much as Anthony is enjoying his trip, and as much as his fans are enjoying it, if Anthony had asked my advice before he took off on the road, I would have suggested he stay home, and take care of his girlfriend. She's been good to him. He didn't ask my advice, so there's that.I get the strong impression, that part of the reason he's taking the trip, is that I think he'd like to try and meet this Autumn person in Texas. BIG mistake IMO.I could be wrong.
Quote from: Rain on March 31, 2019, 04:47:11 PMWhat do you think of autumn person?
Quote from: ItsOver on March 31, 2019, 04:45:36 PMYep. Defensive driving. It also helps to have a "stealth" vehicle, at least with law enforcement and avoiding road ragers. Something low-key and neutral in color, no "arrest me" red. A boxy, grey, older Toyota Avalon sedan is probably ideal. They'll just think you're some old fart puttering around. Just don't provoke anyone by driving too slow.
Quote from: albrecht on March 31, 2019, 05:06:08 PMThere is, apparently, a totally different school on thought on this. I -guess- the idea is something like "too much paperwork" or "I don't want to call out the SWAT team and would rather go home tonight" idea? My thinking on seeing some interesting vehicles here in Austin.1) some kid, I don't think even of a drinking age, who had a truck in which he had put "Four Loko" decals all over it (if you are not familiar- this was a highly controversial alcoholic beverage and a very cheap price-point that combined high alcohol volume with a "benefit" of energy via caffeine and other substances. Often ensuring black-outs and drunk antics/crimes by drinkers.) 2) some hippies whose van, of suspect road-worthyness, that had a bumpsticker: "I'm Not As Think as you STONED I am." Or something like that. And some National Park and Grateful Dead stuff. 3) the guy who drives around with placards in his truck bed and whose whole truck is covered in scrawls about things like "911 Inside Job," Biblical messages, images of AR-15s, and such. 4) the guy, props to him, who was driving and "rolling coal" (look it up) when Trump got elected with Yuuge Trump flags on his lifted pickup around an urban Austin neighborhood during school let out time. Lots of moms, and oddly, lots of hipster dads who don't work, were concerned.
Quote from: ItsOver on March 31, 2019, 05:22:11 PMLOL. Well, Austin be Austin. A vehicle that would stand out in a "normal" area, which admittedly seems to be shrinking, might fit right in there. An old VW Thing, jacked-up, with off road tires, peace stickers, Willy Nelson and Shiner stickers and wearing an H&M cowboy hat, if they even make them, might be better for Austin. Need to blend with the cowboys and the hipsters, definitely tricky.
Quote from: albrecht on March 31, 2019, 05:41:29 PMIt would fit in, assuming the Thing had a V8 retro-fitted into it. VW's Thing, despite cool appearance, has no power!
Quote from: Walks_At_Night on March 31, 2019, 11:25:48 AMI dunno. I did learn that I don't want to get drug off by the NYC coppers and hauled into Bellevue and injected with anti-psychotics
