Im astounded and befuckled!


I had seen this video before but hadn’t been interested enough to watch it. I finally did and it has exploded my preconceptions of an everyday annoyance/safety device.

Traffic lights, everyone knows they are a necessary evil right? But we all endure because it would be worse without them right…..?

Watch these 2 vids and have an almost LSD-like expansion of your consciousness…

Me, while watching this...

* Befuckled is a specalist medical term used by the charming lady who trained me as a medic. It comes when a student is in a profound state of befucklement and has hit a dead end. Once you work the problem out you cease to be befuckled or in a state of befucklement and become unbefuckled. Befucklement is a natrual stage in the process of learning.

I apologise if the terminology is a little advanced…..

    I’d like to see traffic lights have a numerical count down to red and not just an amber light.

    A bit staged, but essentially true.

    Traffic lights lights might play an essential role concerning bigger intersections, but, well, take South Korea… no one gives a rats about the lights at the smaller intersections.

    Something about Brits themselves there, too. Why don’t they stick it to the Man and just drive through, sometimes? Is it that fear like we get in Australia of some hidden camera somewhere?

    Yet considering people drive like maniacs in places such as Paris and Kathmandu, let’s not go too hard on the nanny state brigade this time.

    Great vid.

    It seems like traffic lights are like make-up. Essentially essential but less is more.

    […] What does this mean?

      It’s a trackback when I link to this site. A little Tizona logo pops up at my personal site and you’ll notice my avatar above is a little different (bluer) than my usual avatar seen when I comment.

    Oh? I see.

    Hmm, it seems to me that the only people complaining are those blind pricks……….

    Maybe we should send their SID* to a re-education camp.

    Or maybe their mobility should be limited.

    Anyway, the only thing worse than a whinging Pom is a whinging disabled Pommy bastard.
