I say that people are the problem. If people were courteous enough to follow the Stop Sign rule and not get angry and impatient then we would not need traffic lights. Traffic lights in turn cause the problem of the backups you just described, because of the lag of one driver hesitating and starting the positive feedback loop.

...but I heard this on the RADIO two days ago. But anyway, if you're stupid enough to rob a bank or whatever and then update your facebook or twitter status "i just robbed a bank lol" then you deserve whats coming. I only bother with facebook about once every two weeks, and I find twitter to be absolutely useless.

Well, depends on the quality of the video. If we assume that video is 30 frames a second, that would make 30,000 words a second and 1,800,000 words a minute. A full length movie at this rate (assuming 1.5 hours) 162,000,000 words, plus dialog. This is of course high-quality video, but its pretty amazing how quickly that adds up.
