    Don't blame the PSP, blame the div holding it.

    I'm not blaming the PSP at all. I'm just saying some people need to not be so attached to it and look around at their environment.

    This kind of thing happens more often than people think. Not just with PSPs but texting, IPads, internet phones, etc. With practically everything going mobile handheld people get so engrossed into whatever they are playing/watching like their sitting on the couch...except they are not sitting on their couch but rather walking/driving.

    It's like that chick who fell into a fountain because she was texting. Lets hope this boy doesn't decide to sue the subway system.

    Yeah. Try driving through a college campus; it's a nightmare. Kids don't even look up to cross the street.

    Tell me about it. My wife works at a university, and I take her to work and pick her up every day. Little children obey traffic laws better than college students do.

    And it's definitely not the technology's fault. It should be a law that people need to take responsibility for their own actions instead of blaming everything else in their stupid lives.

    I find it weird how when the chick fell in the fountain the reaction was more or less "ZOMG! I hate texters! I want to beat them with my fists as the offend my old nature ways!"

    Then the boy it's all like, "Dummy."

    Am, I'm the only one who found this funny [since he didn't get ran over]? But people who can't multitask their attention shouldn't do that. It like trying to fly when you don't have the aerodynamic structure to provide lift.

    Before I get my flame on. I walk and play with my DS too. But only turn based games, for reasons to prevent that from happening. I can't and won't try to do that on anything else. Besides I look more around the screen than on it, and I increase my field of view. But if it happens to me I'll have no one else to blame but myself.

    The real headline should be "Man forced to save kid after the dumbass falls off platform while not paying attention to his surroundings.."

    I had some dumbshit kid walk blindly out into the road in front of me a few days back as I was driving along. The stupid shit was so engrossed in his precious PSP that his mum had to grab him to stop him from continuing out into the road. It's a good thing both his mum and I were paying attention to the road.

    The best part? He turned around and shouted as his mum for grabbing him. Fucking kids these days.

    Thank God there are still good people in the world. That guy wasted no time running over and jumping down to pick the boy up.
