There are so many ads and other crap on those pages I looked at the first three and bailed.  I've seen free porn sites with fewer ads.


Yeah but that's cause you've already paid for the porn site slywink

Alba is #1, so I can't argue with the list *that* much.  She's all that matters.

Second, he or anyone else, should be allowed to ride a motorcycle without a helmet whenever they freaking want....this is America.


So long as I'm allowed to call you a bloody idiot for doing so, I'm cool with that slywink.

Quote
Because riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous to begin with. If you're going to be afraid of "what ifs" then you shouldn't be riding, or doing ANYTHING remotely "dangerous" then. Go live in a rubber freaking house.


There is a difference between being Captain Safety and not being a loon.  If you were to jump out of a plane, would you not double check to see that your parachute was attached properly?

Quote
Had Ben been in this accident and injured his throwing arm instead, none of this crap about helmets would even come up.


No, instead we'd be ripping him for not wearing full leathers.

Quote
The farce that riding helmetless raises everyone insurance rates is obvious.....do you think rates would come down if the no-helmet law was reversed? Fuck no. Insurance companies use stuff like this as a convenient way of keeping rates up, because they HATE that people do ANYTHING that might cost them some medical bills. Insurance companies are NOT running my life, like they want to.


Likely true.

Quote
Just living can be dangerous..when it's your time, there's nothing you can do about it to stop it. I had a rider killed right in front of my house a couple years ago. He was wearing a helmet, but it didn't matter since his body was twisted up like a pretzel after he slid underneath a Ford F150.


For every example you have of a rider dying with a helmet, I'm certain there is an example of a rider being saved by wearing one.

Quote
Thousands more people are killed in car accidents WHILE WEARING SEAT BELTS than helmetless motorcyclists.


Anecdotal statistic of a drastically larger sample size.  Your point is what?

Quote
Seat belt laws for cars are BULLSHIT. I'm a criminal now if not wearing a seatbelt? C'mon :roll: It should be a CHOICE, and not required.


Again... can't say I totally disagee with this, so long as we can call you an idiot and not treat you with public funds when you are found injured.

Quote
I've been riding for 24 years. I've owned dozens of different bikes, and even drag-raced some of them. I've been down on the pavement two times, and even flipped over a car's hood one time. I was required to wear a helmet for the first 16 or so years of that riding time, but since this law has been reversed, I will continue to ride without one.....BECAUSE I WANT TOO.


Baffling, but totally your choice (in the state of PA).

IThe reason I stopped riding altogether, however, was because dodging idiots in cars every single day was causing me, literally, to have anxiety problems.


Totally agree, and the reason why I do not have a valid motorcycle license today.  It's a lot of fun, but there are idiots out there who can't see me in my FUCKING CAR, much less a bike.

On a motorcycle related note.  california has a no helmet law, dont they?  Either way.  I know there are a few states that do.  Almost of them, when they show people on bikes, the guys are wearing helmets.  It seems to me that most smart riders, even when they have the option to NOT wear a helmet, DO.


We are required to wear helmets in California.

I think anyone who rides without one deserves what they get.  It's absolute lunacy to not.

I cannot fathom why anyone, when doing something inherently dangerous, won't do something that is proven to make it safer.

New one?

Sadly, no, as I was only allocated $15k OTD to play with. I did drive a MKV manual a few months ago, though.

Niiiiiice.

Drove a DSG A3 for fun, too. Pretty cool.

I ended up getting an 02 GTI. A bit of an upgrade from my 01 (HP and miles-wise), but not my first color choice.


Yeah I'm not a huge fan of VWs, but that DSG flappy paddle deal is pretty friggin cool.

What the heck happened to the G35?

The Civic is a nice, practical car (I'm partial to the Fit, myself), but it's about as far away from a performance sedan as you can get.

However, it's a nice little family econobox that will serve you very well.  It does need a HUGE spoiler, melon shooter exhaust, and many stickarz though.

In fact, the only thing I didn't like about the DC was the controller.  Ugh.  What a horribly uncomfortable piece of crap.



You take that back, right now!   Seriously, the VMU was the best peripheral in gaming history.  I remember taking it to Vegas with the Skies of Arcadia minigames on it (which you could use to gain exp for your character away from the game) and got all the way to level 100 on it.  Awesome.


The VMU was a cute idea that never actually did anything significant.

The controller was an atrocity towards man.  I have yet to find a creature with the hands they designed that thing for.  Crazy Taxi would leave me with a deformed claw of a hand for a good 3 or 4 hours after I played the game.

Quote from: "madpeon"
For those comparing a 360 premium + adapter + HDDVD player to a PS3 premium system....

There is one, significant difference... they are optional!

Not everyone cares about next-gen media types, not everyone needs a wireless connection on their console.


Understood that not everyone does, but speaking solely for myself: I do.  So thus, the $600 isn't totally fucking crazy for me.  For others, I totally agree.

That being said, there is NO way Sony doesn't sell every single one of these suckers they produce for launch.  It just won't happen.  There will be lines, there will be mass hysteria, and there will be Ebay scalping.  Guaranteed.

It's momentum after that initial rush, however, I have doubts about.

Actually Darren8r, the Xbox360 with say a $100 Hd-dvd drive attachment would end up being $499.99(don't look at the bundles that Amazon and other retailers throw out, MSRP for the Premium 360 is $399) the same cost as the low-end PS3, EXCEPT the fact that the low-end PS3 doesn't have HDMI, which is critical to watch Blu-ray in true High Def. So you have to get the $600 dollar machine.

Hundred bucks is still a hundred bucks.


+$100 for the 360 WiFi adapter.  Now that I think about it that way... the PS3 isn't as stupidly expensive as I once thought.  It's actually the same price as my 360...

19 mpg on average
$3.50/gallon the last time I filled up

$29.50 per week on gas for just commuting.

When we get to four times that, I suppose I'll start thinking about it.
