    is that even safe? god these fucking car mod guys are so fucking stupid.

    I was just behind some fucking rice racer with lowered suspension and every single time there's a hump or some pothole he'd slow down and go diagonal over it, and then push the pedal and sprint until the next pothole comes up. fucking pointless motherfucking idiots.

    I don't think it is, it's called Oni camber / Demon camber.

    I had a car like the ricer you mentioned, except mine was an Audi and not ricy.

    in the states, these cars are 'stanced' or (the worst slang term for cars in automotive history -) "hellaflush". dear God, I like modifying cars myself and checking out/driving nice cars, but all the gene pool rejects are in that scene.

    I see them most often in the VW and Audi crowd.

    Stance is a reference to ride height and how it sits in context to the wheels, hella flush just means, that the lip is flush with wheel arches and not poking (aka. german fitment) or tucking.

    Those cars are closer to bosozoku style, than anything.

    I feel like I might have posted this before, but I really, really don't get why anyone gives a crap about awards shows.

    Me neither. I didn't even know the Emmys were on last night :embar:.

    I'm glad House of Cards won an award tho. I really hope they shift the tv show paradigm so we aren't at the mercy of shit cable companies anymore.

    Yeah, I had no clue until all of the "news" sites I visit started talking about who won and what they wore while they did it.

    Cool that House of Cards won, I suppose (MrsG and I just finished the first disc over the weekend and love it), but I've just never understood why I should care. I can sort of see caring if you're in the business, because it's confirmation that your peers respect you, but why does the average TV/movie/music consumer care what celebrities think of one another?

    Bosozoku is a motorcycle/scooter subculture. It generally involves riding pieces of shit bikes with either no or noisy mufflers and revving the shit out of the thing so as to disturb as many people as possible. They also like to dodge in and out of traffic, run red lights, lead the police on chases. Bosozoku don't drive cars. Although some car modifiers are said to take inspiration from the awful bosozoku bike styling, these cars are generally more similar to Group 5 racing cars from the 70s than anything above.

    Wait...you are watching House of Cards on a disc? I didn't realize you were a 60 year old man, I always thought you were much younger.

    Probably the case.

    Kind of sad for them.

    I don't have Netflix streaming. It's redundant with my Amazon Prime membership, so we have Netflix for discs and Amazon for streaming.

    This style normally gets referred to as Bosozoku.

    Why does Uniqlo pimp their puffy coats so tirelessly?
