German traffic lights are doing it right (Video)

0 0

A very modern traffic light in central Germany that allows you to play a game of pong with someone on the other side of the street while waiting for the light to change. An amazing invention and experiment in social interaction.

          bad taste

  • KCO617

    I'd prefer a beer dispenser of some sort, or ESPN top 10-plays….but to each his own.

    • Tankus

      The light change is not fast enough for a top 10 plays, and beer is something you enjoy with company or while relaxing at home, not while you walk toward a destination.

      • DBAg

        I disagree…I'll drink anywhere…ESPN and beer VS pong, I THINK I'll go with beer and sports you fuckin hipster clowns!!

        • Vince

          Well done, you are a DBag.

    • herp de derp

      Why can't people just say America?

      • Maropati

        Why can't people just say United States? Learn the difference.

      • a-nom

        Right? But agreed, it would be pretty awesome if we had things like this in the states

      • afssafa

        Why can't people just stop saying American when they refer to USA.

      • YeeHaaa

        Because this is 'Merica and we speak 'Merican!

      • FeRDNYC

        …Going back to the original-original question[er], I'd say this thread right here is your answer.

        Why can't we have stuff like this? Because if you were to do something like this on any streetcorner in what I'm assured is the greatest country in the world, the response would be a flood of bitching about every last detail in how you did it. Everything, or more accurately everything of little consequence — from the choice of Pong as the game, to the skateboard-shaped paddle, to the font used to display the scores — would be complained about, at great length, by a legion of trolls whose whining would drown out all other responses.

    • Steve

      Because blacks and white trash would break it.

      • kryvian

        THIS. not saying the shitheads in our country would do otherwise, but yeah, this.

    • tartex

      becouse you don't like taxes

    • Emucratic

      These Damn welfare states… We can't have this because we don't even have sidewalks and in the US somebody would probably steal the screen after 2 days.

  • jim thorton

    Yea, that is pretty cool. Would have been better if he was able to take that chick home with him I suppose.

  • remv

      No. This is Germany after all. You could bang the other person, but talking with a stranger. You gotta understand their culture, man.

  • ma nam a borat

    In 'Merica, if the devices survived more than 24 hours of douchebags carving gang signs into them and hitting/kicking/punching/spitting on or trying to figure out a way to somehow rob them of materials they could sell for scrap, idiots would end up fighting over who gets to play and/or who won, who cheated, etc.

    • Lboogie13

      Sad but true. I still love you though 'Merica
