    I wonder what will hold that marriage together once the looks fade? It sure won't be the intelligent conversation.
    That's a cracker of a video. The poor man. I already want to pull my hair out in frustration, and I don't have to live with her.

    The TV tonight had a quote "Beauty fades, but dumb stays forever" I think that sums this up.

    I think she makes a lot of sense.

    It definitely depends on how fast you tyres are going round.

    And the wack it in half is also good advise because it always takes longer to get somewhere than you think.

    She also must have big tyres bacause if they go round 400 times in a mile they would be about 1.28 metres diameter.

    There's another video where a guy's girlfriend/wife says why she believes the blonde has some valid points. However, this one concludes that you take 80 minutes at 80mph, and 40 minutes at 40mph, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh_nK9cNMnY but it's not half as good as the original.

    Agreed. I'm also struggling to believe that the guy just happens to have a video camera in his car in case his 'wife' says something Youtube worthily dumb, and that he can operate it skilfully enough while also driving the car. Does he keep it permanently running on his lap - because you'd never know where a real conversation would be going, or when it might deliver the goods, if you hadn't planned it. It also stretches credulity somewhat to believe that somebody could be that much of a jerk to set his wife up in such a creepy smirking fashion. She's also seems to be 'selectively dumb' to suit the story. If that's not scripted I'll eat my hat.

    While you're driving? You're absolutely right though - the video camera could be in a phone, an iPad, a point and shoot camera, or any number of gadgets, but it still has to be operated and tracked while driving. That seems as dumb as her answers. I certainly hope it it is a fake - not because she missed the point of a simple maths question - but because he seems like such an utter creep to deliberately set her up and string it out for the required time for it to thoroughly put her down and make fun of her, whilst not hiding the fact that he's filming it. It's not him I feel sorry for, it's her - for being attached to such a smirking jerk. Please tell me that it IS a fake.

    It looks to me like the conversation began, he realised it was going to be funny, and then started filming with a phone or small mobile camera. She seems to know he's filming it, so it's not like he's hiding the camera from her. She only seems to keep talking because she believes she's right, but then fakes are getting better and better now a days, so it could be a well done fake.

    If it's to good to be true, it probably is.
    If it's to dumb to be true, it probably isn't.
