There are these ads on a radio station I listen to while I am driving sometimes, and they are for some kind of in-car emergency alert system, that monitors the car, can call 911 for you, and the lady or gentleman at the help center can contact you and talk to you in the event of an incident. Presumably through the radio or something.
Aside from the sheer big-brotherishness of this, which I just don't feel like getting into. Really, I don't, but it is creepy. That aside, there is something else a little odd here. One of the commercials features a man who has been knocked unconscious by the accident, and the help lady is earnestly calling 911 for him. He then comes to, wondering (rather poorly) what has happened. The lady starts to talk to him, explaining the situation, and all I can think of is this poor bleeding sap who is stuck in his smacked up car, with a whopper of a headache and slowly returning consciousness; then, then..... the freakin' car is talking to him.
Wouldn't that kind of mess you up?
