Sadness Knows No Speed Limit: If You're Traveling 80-MPH, How Long Does It Take to Travel 80-Miles?

80-mph-math.jpg

Inb4 gosh, I hope my significant other posts a video online making me look stupid.

This is a video of Trevor Travis asking his wife Lacey Chelsea how long it takes a car traveling 80 miles per hour to travel 80 miles. Now I'm not saying you shouldn't be allowed to drive if you can't answer the question, because you shouldn't even be allowed to f***ing ride in a car. Granted word problems ARE pretty tricky (see exhibit A: a collection of my middle school report cards), but how has she ever been able to estimate how long a trip will take? She just hasn't? And before you call her dumb -- she's definitely not any worse than her husband WHO SPENT FOUR AND A HALF MINUTES FILMING THE TWO OF THEM WHILE DRIVING. That's just as bad as texting, bro! Traveling at 60MPH and not watching the road, how long would it-- *CRASH!* Exaaaaactly.

Hit the jump for the I don't even.

Thanks to Karen, who tried to tell me planes are faster than cars because gravity is weaker up there. Is that true?!

    The woman is a genius and should run for office. She's doing what politicians do all the time.
    They don’t answer the question, but YOU keep listening to them anyway. So who’s the real dummy here?

  • Felipe

    She must suck a mean *#%^!!!

  • What if you kicked her out doing 80MPH?

  • This_Update_Sucks

    About the same amount of time it takes to bake a cake. Get back in the kitchen then birth some babies...actually nevermind. You shouldn't be allowed to re-produce.

  • Juan Ruiz

    Well,  divorce happen when you repear the same joke all days.

  • phillip reyes

    This is fake. And if it's not then she has the ugliest thinking face and he's stupid for acting like he's mentally light years ahead of her. 

  • as asif

    In all fairness she does have a point with the tire turning bit... your speedometer isn't necessarily accurate based on your tires' inflation. So technically you could be going slower/faster than 80MPH despite your speedometer reading 80... but I seriously doubt she considered that for this problem.

  • Tigerh8r

    He didn't say, "If your speedomoter says 80 MPH", he just said , "If you are going 80 miles per hour, how long does it take you to travel 80 miles." 80 miles/80 miles ( hour) = 1 hour. 

    She's stupid and he's a jerk.  They'll probably be married forever.  They will probably also move in next door to me.

  • Because if texting and driving on the phone isn't bad enough. Now we have a dumb blond and her slightly slow husband. Recording a video as they drive. THE ONLY THING, that would have made this better, Is if they got into an accident.

  • That.. That was painful to watch.

  • Cinema Obsessed

    Shame on him for dating someone so stupid. His standards should be a little higher.

  • Please God, let them be using birth control...

  • Her smile at the beginning leads me to believe that this is fake.

  • Jillian Kieda

    I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    This fella just invented a new successful blond test.

  • Yoduh99

    i'd bet money this is fake.  she even once says "you're probably going 2 minutes a mile"
    SHE UNDERSTANDS MINUTES PER MILE... but not miles per hour?  yea right.

  • Hamish Fox

    It's obvious that she just doesn't know what 'per' means, and her husband is enjoying feeling smugly superior too much to actually take the time to explain. What a dick.

  • Shaun9lives

    Well, yeah.  That's kind of the whole thing.  Little kids know what 'per' means in the context of miles per hour without ever being told.  It's not something that's formally taught.  Its meaning is obvious and implied from its usage.  Even if the entire crux of her ignorance is simply the word 'per', it still doesn't speak very highly of her intelligence or reasoning skills.  

  • I don't want to believe this is real. If this isn't fake I will just reject that reality and substitute it for my own. Its fake... I hope.

  • I dont want to leave on this planet anymore! FORGET IT!
