On the value of paying attention to your surroundings

Man shoots other man on the train he's riding on. After drawing the pistol and pointing it at fellow passengers several times. They're just too attentive to whatever they're doing to notice him.

    Maybe he would have shot the first person who noticed him. Sounds like he got frustrated when he didn't get the reaction he was hoping for. I'd like to see the video.

    It is obviously the guns fault.

    The zombie apocalypse is already here. People wired up to their smartphones. Oblivious to everything around them with their eyes glued to that little screen. They have been assimilated.
    If the U.S. Congress was put in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in under six months.

    Well since there seems to be some confusion over my comment, I stole it.

    They aren't real zombies; they aren't dead and reanimated. They are just brain dead. This assumes, of course, that they had a brain in the beginning that later dies. And since most of them didn't have two viable brain cells to rub together to start with, it becomes ambiguous as to whether two viable brain cells constitute a brain, or, whether it was just a proto-brain that never developed with the rest of the body. At any rate, they seem to be quite enamored of bright shiny objects, and gaze at and caress them to the detriment of their safety, and oblivious to danger nearby. I shall coin a new word to describe them. Techbies, which is a person acting like a zombie due to technological brain lock(again assuming a brain exists).
