A non-story: Shia stares

If you drive around L.A. you'll find yourself waiting at a ton of traffic lights.  It's not unusual for people to look out their windows at other drivers.  A recent video shot by a motorcyclist caught actor Shia LaBeouf looking intensely out of his truck at the biker.  Huffington Post, Gawker, Buzzfeed and Yahoo picked up the story.  This isn't a story, it's more of a situation.  People are wondering why Shia was glaring at the biker.  Perhaps he was looking at the camera on the guy's helmet.  Maybe he was contemplating switching to a Prius.  Or maybe at that moment Shia realized his girlfriend doesn't have eyebrows.  My point is there are many reasons Shia could have been staring. The whole thing a non-story and the dumbest thing to make the news in a long time.
