On the dangers of texting and ______...

We all know (or should) about the dangers of texting and driving.  But, quite frankly, at this point we should be talking about the dangers of texting, period.  The other day, I saw a woman literally walk into a lamp post because she was not paying attention while texting and walking.  And now, to quote the folks at Lowering the Bar, from the world of terrible ideas comes the ski goggles that let you see texts and emails on the goggles while you are skiing.  'Cause nothing says "fun" like skiing down a mountain at high speeds around other skiers - let alone trees - while reading your mail...  Lowering the Bar has more (it is worth it).

The goggles let you read emails on the slopes, as well as listen to music and make phone calls.  For more information on the product go here.

Okay maybe not quite -- the second one is from Lowering the Bar -- but you get the idea.

Now, I know what you are going to say...  This is for people to use while taking a break, while at the lodge sipping hot chocolate, etc.  Noone would be dumb enough to read emails while skiing.   Yeah, that's the same thing they said about driving.... but now we know better, don't we?:
