    I am thinking of taking a course with these people: http://thethriftystitcher.co.uk

    I'm thinking it will save me a ton of money in the long run.

    This is false.

    When you have a really fast car...it is just as much of a pleasure to drive it very slow. It is like an inside joke you share with yourself. People see it and think it should be going fast...and they know it can go really fast...and you know it is very fast...but you tease them and go soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ssssssllllllllllooooooowwwww...and all they want is to see it go fast...and to hear its engine roar...but you don't let them have that childish satisfaction...

    And then...when you are tired of this...you can floor it and and upshift 6 gears in amazing speed and go 0-60 in 3 seconds flats...and live out the exhilaration.

    There is no comparison.


    Another note on speed...

    It is one thing to go very fast in a straight line...but this is not real speed.

    Speed is taking a right angle turn at 90 miles per hour and thinking that the car should be ripped from the ground and flip...and yet the drag on the car generated by the cars power and aerodynamics keeps it glued to the ground....and this indeed has made many grown men shit their pants.

    I just sewed on braces buttons on a pair of trousers and I'm now changing my blazer buttons to the MoP Inlays I showed earlier. I'd show you guys the jacket but I'm pretty sure you'll hate this RTW piece of crap. Undeniably, though, the buttons will at least improve it from awful to awful but at least has cool looking buttons.

    I am not actually sure of the % and you are probably right. I know my friends that do live down there love taking the ferry every day.

    I can attest to this...except I did this in high school in a car that was not aerodynamic, did not create the necessary drag, and did not stay glued to the ground. Car flipped and came to a stop roof side down. Luckily no one was injured. I may or may have not shit my pants while dialing the phone to tell my dad I just flipped his car.

    I still don't drive slow. Too boring

    Just realized I was reading this all wrong. :facepalm:

    But its most fun to drive most fast, be is a slow or fast car. MOAR SPEED!!!


    Sorry about that, I needed the shoes.




    Truth. I would add to that though. Speed while maneuvering is pretty damn awesome. Coming an inch from something and peeling right or left while accelerating is heart ponding fun.

    Holy crap. I have never flipped a car, but I have definitely made turns at speeds not designed for the car I was driving. Good scary fun, but that stupidity is in my past. Now I only do things that are slightly less stupid.
