Default Suicide?

Well, it finally rained in the cities! And, on the way to the doctors office this afternoon, seen a moron in a riced out early 80'* Delta 88 (Tint, stripes, big chrome spinners, and "dual" chrome exhaust on a rust bucket" punch it a bit too hard and smack a light pole. Kind of a shame as Delta'* are nice cars, kind of funny as hell because the wannabe "gangsta" driving it didn't have a clue what he was doing. It'* not like it was pouring out (Yet, it started dumping buckets about 10 minutes later), just a sprinkles on and off all day.

Well, one less idiot on the roads for a while...

It scares me that there are people out there like that. Its been raining all day here in northern Illinois as well so you would "hope" people take precautions.

I like the first good snowfall of the season. Then you can watch all those people in their RWD cars spin around trying to get traction.

It'* also a good reason not to go to work.

"Where were you?"

"I got run off into a ditch"

Oh, well as long as you're OK"

Meanwhile, you've been home eating Captain Crunch trying to look down Kelly Rippa'* shirt....

They think because they have traction, they can stop faster, too. We have idiots in Oregon, too. It'* always the 4x4'*.

I remember last year seeing one too many Mustangs out on the roads. Not one could hold a straight line.

I agree about those stupid SUV drivers. They don't realize 4X4 won't slow them down any faster.

Back in grade 10 (two years ago), i was heading to exams, in mid January if i rememberly correctly, and i was heading out to get my buddy, and i tried passing this little **** box Mini because he was doing 40-50 in a 80 (km/h), and once i got beside him he hit the gas as to not allow me to pass, and there was a school bus in front of him (which he got right behind) so i had to pass the bus too and convieniently, around the corner comes a salt truck/snow plow, and comming back into the other lane, there was all of a sudden a big line of snow in the center of the highway which was not plowed off and caused the car too stop turning until it touched the pavement again. Once that happend the tires gripped and started fishtailing, and i narrowly missed the salt truck but it was getting worse (the car was doing about 140km/h because i had to get around the bus because of the impending death that was about to be brough upon me by the salt truck) so i had no choice but to plow into the 3 feet deep of snow on the side of the road and ditched the car like 10 meteres off the road so to avoid the school bus and be responsible for the deaths of a bunch of kids. Anyhow, upon my arrival to the exam (an hour late), i was given the credit because of what happend (i failed the exam because we were so late). That had to be one of the most terrifying incidents that has ever happend to me in a car.

Let me tell you this though, if i ever catch the guy that drives that mini, i am going to beat his face in for being such an imbosile. I can't believe people **** around with other drives like that especially around a school bus on a day like that.

Only minor damage to the car. Just lost the washboard beneath the front of the car and the engine bay and underbody was PACKED with snow. Had to get towed out.

Wow that was like writing a book!
