Default A Possible Theory of The White Curse

Hey,
I think I have a theory why bad things keep happening to white Bonnevilles. It'* not scientifically proven but who needs science? Anyway, I have developed this theory from another experience. My parents kept warning me about deer and I told them that they were paranoid. I have driven a lot in the back roads and I havent even stopped or saw a deer. How did this happen? Simple, I never thought about deer and I thought about other insignificant things going on in my life such as why my teacher smells or so... But my parents continually report that they had to stop quickly cuz deer jumps in front of them, knowing them, They're continually thinking about where the deer will jump in front. So I figure if the owners of the white bonnies don't think about what happened to other white bonnies and the statistics of white bonnies wrecked versus other color of bonnies wrecked then the curse will stop.

Either you will say interesting idea, that is plausible or . I'm leaning heavily on the second choice

Well Pattie, the thought could have been lingering in the back of your head. I don't know, I said it wasn't scientifically proven. I'm just trying to post a lot of stuff that are vaguely related to Bonnevilles. Well there'* one thing going on now, I'm shopping around for new rims. I'm staying with 16x7. I think I found one that I like and I'm going to check it out later, I think there might be a pic online, I'll look for it and post it on a new thread so willwren or anyone won't chastise me for going off topic, you know how they are

Scientifically proven that Silver is the most common color in an accident. White is near the top of the list at #3. White Bonnevilles outnumber Silver here.

As far as I can remember, when I had my white Bonnie, there were a lot of times when I was cut off and such, prolly cause the car blended in with the surroundings pretty well.

With my red GP, I don't notice that as much. The car stands out much more, and more people see it easier.

Nice try but I haven't been in an accident or near calls. Well there were some near calls but it was the other driver which was a blond woman on a cell. Surprise . Now I will not desire a young beautiful blond woman, any other hair color is fine. But not blond period. Unless the knockers were big...

I never payed attention to it untill I joined the BC but most of the Bonnes I see broken down or in accidents are white.Most of them have probally never heard of the "curse" so they could not have had it on there minds.

Jackie! Jack-san! You're supposed to help me out! I called you a wise man, not a wise ***. Why don't you stop next time and ask them if they knew about the white curse? How about that? I bet you that they heard of it. Old people are excluded in this study okay, they suck at driving now.
