    After what happened to this guy, I expect that I will be liberated from the "just ask for directions" comments that my wife makes....

    They wanted a Camaro that badly? Why? Were there no Iroc-Zs in sight?

    Why on earth would you ask pedestrians for directions at 2:50 a.m.?

    Does it not occur that anyone out that late is probably :

    1. Drunk
    2. Up to no good
    3. On their way home form work

    I would think that #1 and #3 should be fairly easy to identify.

    At that time if you need directions drive until you find a well lit gas station to ask for directions.

    Wow. A $4,000 Camaro. Must have been brand new and totally pimped out.:D

    (Yes, I saw it was a 1995 Camaro. Just taking a dig...)

    Well, you have to remember, most Camaro owners make sure that they take along their collection of BTO, Styx and Foghat tapes which easily add 1000.00 to the value.

    On "The Amazing Race" contestants stop and ask for directions all the time, even in the middle of the night. If you don't, you're screwed! Course the fact that there's a camera crew with them probably makes the criminals less willing to try anything.

    Well that's the guys problem. He should have had his camera crew with him.

    So it's really his fault. ;)


    "Drop the investigation, fellas. This clown didn't even have a camera crew with him. No wonder."

    Exactly, he got what he deserved. If there's one thing reality tv has taught me (other than to hate life), its that you have to record every second of your life if you want people to know what really goes on. Oh, and a crew to edit the scenes so its actually enjoyable. Most people don't want to watch me sitting on my butt posting on macrumors when I have an unfinished research proposal that has to be submitted in 3 hours and 32 minutes.

    3 hours and 31 minutes . . . .

    So there is a reason that men don't like to ask for directions. I was always open to asking for directions if lost, perhaps I will have to change my way of thinking about this matter.... ;) :)

    i'd print this out and keep it in my car. the next person who says, "let's ask that guy for directions...", i would say, "open the glove compartment...and shad dap...".
