How the fuck did you come by those videos, and more to the point, what on earth possessed you to share them?

Very much. I need occasional reminders as to why staying away from facebook is a good idea.

I wonder if that couple is still together. Creating a viral video making fun of your wife for being an idiot can't be good for your marriage.

Calling it a dick move is a huge understatement. Can you imagine how this girl feels? Her husband basically set her up to look like an idiot, and now the thing has been broadcast to almost 4,000,000 people all over the world. Strangers probably recognize her on the street.

And, frankly, she's probably not especially stupid or anything. In my experience, about half the students in any remedial algebra class have some similar difficulties with understanding what miles/hour means. You could probably set up most of those people to look like this. Being that ignorant of elementary math isn't anything to be proud of, but I think this was set up to make her look much worse than she actually is.

If she's anything like every one of the women I've ever been out with, even telling stories to friends which feature something cute or blonde she did is very dangerous ground.

Yeah, it's entirely possible that the husband confused her by talking about some irrelevant things.

It was so easy using this awesome new srdanova notation: I just added up all the gaps in between the road markings, then added up all the lengths of the road markings, then added the two series together.

§3(1)2(1)2§n-(.8)§2(2)2§§3(1)2(1)1(1)1(2)2§ + §3(1)2(1)2§n+(.6)§2(2)2§ = 1§3(1)2(1)1(2)2§ = 80.

lol u: dot not know

lol my bad that's only half the calculation. For the time element it was also as easy, you just take all of time and gap out everything apart from the hour the car is driving the 80 miles, and there's your answer: one hour.

§43(31)2(51)2§(.8)§2(2)2§§3(1)24(11)1(14)1(2)24§1§3(1)2(1)23§(6)§2(12)42§

The hour in question is in bold.

Of course I haven't given all of the working out, just the final key step.

Women don't like their SOs to embarrass them in front friends? It's almost as if women are just like perfectly normal people in this respect.

That's funny. It's cool though, women like it.

Quiz: I doubt people will recognize her. She looks like the 2 billion other bleach blondes (not that I'm complaining, it's just that they look alike).

Sure, that's what I'm saying, even with the best of intentions and among people who are close, who know her and her foibles and you're all swapping anecdotes in a relaxed context, still don't go there.
