Another reason for Keith not to drive? 12-14-06

Postby Marie » Thu Dec 14, 2006 3:42 pm

According to a study, there is a correlation between astrological signs and ability
to drive. The worst drivers are Libras and Aquarians. (Best are Leos.)

"2nd Worst Position: Aquarius - Jan. 20th to Feb. 18th. They’re impulsive and ruled
by the Planet of speed and rebellion. Aquarians need to get a better grip behind
the wheel."

ACCORDING TO A study by InsuranceHotline.com, a Web site that quotes drivers on
insurance rates, astrological signs are a significant factor in predicting car accidents.

The study, which looked at 100,000 North American drivers' records from the past
six years, puts Libras (born September 23-October 22), followed by Aquarians
(January 20-February 18 ), as the worst offenders for tickets and accidents. Leos
(July 23-August 22) and then Geminis (May 21-June 20) were found to be the best
overall.

this sounds like a crock of shit to me. zodiac signs aren't an accurate predictor of anything else, so why would driving record be an exception?

Hotrod, of course it's a crock. It's the equivalent of the Japanese study Dan & Keith
were talking about on ESPN today, tying blood type to sports ability. (Type Os are
supposedly the most aggressive and competitive.)

Which is why they'll probably mention it on Countdown. :- )

Really? According to the study, Pisces are the 4th worst. My husband is a Pisces
and one of the most cool-headed and focused drivers I've ever seen. We can all
probably think of a great many exceptions.

I'm a Leo. These astrology things are fun to look at but definately don't take them seriously.

I'm an Aquarian, and I've been in one accident, and it was the guy's fault who hit me.

Although, the speed thing hits close to home...working on it though...
