Do Not Attempt Playing Frogger At Home

My husband and I often have the conversation, "Do you really think that people are so stupid that they have to be told..."

Apparently such warnings must be repeated CONSTANTLY as illustrated by the following story.

A 23-year old man has been hospitalized after police in South Carolina say he was hit by an SUV while playing a real-life version of the video game Frogger.

Ah hello. You are neither a frog nor living in a virtual world.

It turns out that Einstien (or Froggy for short) had been discussing the game with his friends. The man yelled then yelled go and then darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway.

No charges are expected against the driver.

It appears that the name of the man who was struck has not been released. Probably to protect him from his own stupidity. Good news though, he was in stable condition Monday night.

You know what that means don't you? Well he's only lost one virtual life and still has a few more to go.
