A prime example of how technology makes you stupider, forgoing all common sense. Assuming if there was any in the first place. Because you’re supposed to fully rely on technology, even on in Beta mode.
Sometime last week I had lunch with KY in town. We then walked back towards KLCC — him back to work and me back to where my car was parked. As we crossed the final main road to get to KLCC, suddenly there were lots of motorbike honking. We turned our heads to our left in horror … 10,000 motorbikes were headed towards us!!!
… okay, it was not 10,000 motorbikes but it sure felt like it! What happened was, I guess both of us blanked/ zoned out and didn’t realise that the traffic light had turned green. So you can imagine both our horrors as we were momentarily stunned there and could not move an inch as the honking motorbikes came nearer and nearer…
I looked at KY, KY looked at me and suddenly we both just RAN for our lives! The photo below is an almost accurate presentation of what transpired…
Scary. Had the ‘life flashed before my eyes’ moment. We could not speak about it for a while. Could not stop laughing because we were rather shaken. Human reactions can be odd.
So I just showed Kim the photo above on MSN.
Kim: WTF LOL! For what?
Me: We nearly died mah. That day..
Kim: Oh. Hahahahhaha
Me: Oh. Hmph. 2 of your best friends nearly died and you ‘oh, hahahaha’. WTF
Kim: Lol didn’t die, did you?
Me: Your empathy is always appreciated.
Kim: I’m really happy you and KY did not die, Suan. How can you doubt that?
Best friends, I tell ya…
