1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Was that the right link?

    That just reinforces the stereotype about Asian drivers. Some of those accidents are almost laughable (how bad the drivers are).

    After all of my near accidents during trips to China, I'm shocked I'm not on that video. Its true, people from China are the worst drivers. On the other hand, kudos to the residents of Taipei for being able to navigate in a major cluster-f*** of mopeds.

    I was horrified for the first minute, then I could not contain the laughter.

    Asians are not necessarily bad drivers, they just disregard traffic rules.

    In the videos, there's not a single stop sign nor traffic light. Would it be so costly to install one????

    Nobody regards traffic lights. Not just the drivers, but the pedestrians too. The time I was closest to going postal here in Beijing was when I was stuck in a taxi at a 4 way intersection for 30 minutes. Red light? People go straight/left turn on a red light, cutting off traffic, people trying to go straight can't fucking go on a green light because of people turning, pedestrians are constantly crossing every which way HOLY FUCK did I want to get out of the taxi and break some skulls.

    my faves: the ultra slow motion head-on between the bicyclist and the moped with 2 people on it. the cyclist was stopped for 2 seconds and still the moped plowed over him in slow motion [​IMG] the guy bicycling around with an umbrella covering his whole head - not sure if the umbrella was obscuring his vision but it looked like it to me. car knocked the umbrella straight into the air and he did a faceplant [​IMG] the guy hanging out in the middle of the intersection. literally just standing there. not sure if the car hit him on purpose but i would have been tempted to myself if i was driving [​IMG] the four ladies also right in the middle of the intersection, but incredibly, they seem to be having some kind of conference right in the middle!!. shuttle golf cart-looking thing takes out two out of four...does it get extra points for getting all four?

    That makes you a bad driver! [​IMG] As well, I almost rear-ended an Asian man today since he decided to make a right hand turn, into the middle between the center and middle lanes while I was going straight on the right hand lane. When I honked my horn at him, he gave me the finger. Buddy, you should be lucky I didn't hit you... and not just with my car.

    i've been in one accident in my life......it involved an older korean lady driving down a parking garage while i was driving up. she didn't understand the concept that traffic goes both ways in that garage and was driving on the wrong side, rounded the corner, and BOOM the cars collide. it was at a casino in detroit so go figure
