Short story I know but whatever

The cop cars in our town have laptop computers mounted in their cars, they run basic linkup software so they can look up records and shit so they don't flood the radios with record checks, liscence plate checks, etc etc.

Well, It's been raining today I was coming home from work 20 miles away, got off the highway and took the parallel road that goes down the main street that I live behind because it's much faster during rush hour. The roads are nice and wet and I'm having a blast going past traffic since everyone's so slow when the roads are wet. I stopped at a stoplight and as soon as it turns green, I began my usual "ACCELERATE DAMN FAST" footwork and glance in the mirror and see the patented "Oh shit there's a translucent blue bar ontop of that car" and immediately stopped accelerating hard. That only lasted for about .5 seconds so it didn't look too weird. I switch into the left lane and the cop starts accelerating past me in the right lane. As he passes, I look over and see what his screen was displaying...



Moving flesh tones consuming the entire screen.


"WHAT THE FUCK? WHAT IS THAT COP WATCHING??"


So I spead up to get another look and it wasn't a porno But it was in-fact a movie!!!
I miss my turn so I could give the cop a look like "haha I cought you, but what the fuck is wrong with you?". He was in the process of closing windows media player as I was pulling up. I saw it all, it was funny. We get to the next stoplight and he goes stright, and I take a left (no oncoming road, 2-lane, 1 way street) and stomp it and get the back end to do a little wiggle. I leave traction control on so I don't REALLY attract his attention with an engine roar.
Hell, if he pulled me over and was like "What were you doing back there son?" I'd just say "What movie were you watching? I didn't know the government wasted that much money on powerful enough processors to watch movies, while your on duty, WHILE DRIVING."

Sure, I'd probably go to jail for that remark, but at least I'd get to be like "Come on officer, I wanna watch too! Put the movie on!"

Fuck if I had my camera... good lord.

No way....that's awesome. I've never heard that before...but yeah the State Troopers here have IMB thinkpads...

But everytime I pass a vehicle with a flat-screen/DVD movie...I follow closely and trying to guess which movie their watching...the last SUV that I passes... think it was an X5...they were watching Star Wars...couldn't tell which one...lol

Great story...
