Either don't put your kids locked inside a car when it is close to 40 C outside, or at least come up with a plan if you're so ****ing lazy...

How do you even forget a child is in the car?

You don't. But it sounds better that you forgot than saying you did that on purpose because it was convenient.

Tragic.

 

I actually watched the entire clip waiting for a reson why an 11 year old couldnt just get out of the car. Was she mentally challenged? Asleep?

Sleep deprivation and exhaustion, usually. I'm not sure anyone who has not raised children can really comprehend the constant focus it takes when they are infants. It's a 24/7 job to keep them alive in the early years, and even as they age, there is a constant fear factor when doing things we take for granted as adults. Throw in all the distractions and other responsibilities of the modern world, and it's pretty daunting. I have to remind my 8-year old to poop regularly.

 

Having a special needs child is even more of a stress. Imagine, that parent has spent the last 11 years being completely focused on keeping the child alive. It's tragic that such a small mistake has such devastating consequences.

Every car needs a solar panel embedded in the roof that is used to power a thermostat-controlled cooling system of some sort. It should be ubiquitous, like seat belts and air bags.

That's the dumbest idea in the history of dumb ideas maybe ever.
Those are the kind of ideas that come up when you allow empathy based solution before common sense solutions.

We got a law last year that allows a person to break a window to rescue a pet under certain conditions

I wish I had solar power AC for my house. Hell, over 700 people died in Chicago from a 4 day heat wave! This needs to end!

Well, the governments(be it that of Iran or the U.S) prefer dead people to live ones, it will cost them a whole lot less money to simply bury someone instead of feeding them.

NWO is real yo!

Well, the idea probably wouldn't work, unless either solar panels are much more efficient or cooling systems are much less energy intensive than I believe either to be. Even so, there's a difference between an impractical idea and one that is dumb. "Common sense" too often means restricting yourself to what you expect to work, without examining why you expect it to work (and so how we could make something else work).

That's not why it wouldn't work. Technical restrictions can be figured out. The dumb part is for this "solution" to resolve the issue it would need to be on all day without any means to turn it off. Now imagine billion cars with AC on non stop during the day. Imagine the impact on our health, environment, budget etc.

Well you need to remember Sharpie is both an expert on solar panels, electrical engineering, and empathy. So he must be right.

We need to remember that Hurlshot is a teacher yet he uses "both" when listing three things ;)

Thanks, Mr. Grammar.

 

Seems like a common seat sensor would solve the environmental impact issue. We already get dinged at when we don't put on our seat belts.
