This Google Car Article Is the Dumbest Article Ever to Appear on Business Insider

The dumbest Business Insider article of all time occurred on December 26, 2014. The title was Three Reasons Why the Auto Industry Should Be Terrified of the Google Car. The absurdity of the article was made evident by reason number two.

The author, Matthew DeBord, in charge of BI's Planes, Trains, and Automobiles editing, outdid absurdity by stating that the Google car must be feared because it didn't even have to go fast. Yep, the car only goes 25 miles per hour! It doesn't have to go fast and that makes it a threat? Very funny Matthew!

I am certain that auto manufacturers are shaking in their boots over the Google car. I mean, 25 miles per hour will make the car freeway ready, if you allow it to attach itself to other cars, lol. I mean, how absurd and stupid is this claim? Look for Google to add a giant magnet to the car. Maybe it can hitch a ride with a Beemer.

And the funny thing about all this is DeBord used to write for the New York Times and the Washington Post!

I used to contribute to Business Insider, and wrote about 60 articles. I was booted for bankster lovers, and replaced by this dufus DeBord! Talk about vindication in stumbling across this article.

Henry, how low can you go. (Henry Blodget owns Business Insider).

Poor old DeBord wrote another article among many on Business Insider, where he said the Google car is a real car! Lol, it is a real golf cart, IMO. But it is an expensive one.

I bet Google buries this article. It won't be fooling anyone with that 25 mph max speed, whether this article sees the light of day or not, lol.The damn car doesn't even have a steering wheel or gas pedal or breaks. Are you serious?

Just because you make a search engine doesn't mean you can make a self driving car safe. But, since the car is in its infancy, I am not criticizing Google so much as the author of the BI article.

I have a warning for all you. Anyone stupid enough to trust a self driving car should buy the land I own in the Florida swamp. I got property with standing water that will be drained in the next century or maybe even sooner!

I would bet on that land before I would bet on a self driving car with no steering wheel, lol.

Update: BI has been pro Tesla, and likely pro self driving cars of all types, but I am not sure their heart is in it. I think these cars are purely science fiction at this point and BI is just writing about a hot trend.

Disclaimer: This article contains satire and humor, and while loaded with truth in my opinion, it is up to the reader to verify the claims of the articles, which are made in jest and are not necessarily proven fact. Some claims are fiction.


  1. I am in agreement with all of this. Very funny yet true.
