I think my car is possessed !(10 posts)

I think my car is possessed !CARBON110

AHAHH DAMN ! I find myself explaining to the Fuzz all the time about how my car is possessed. I try and tell them, " Hey, my foot wasnt even on the accelerator!?! Beats me how I was going 87 in a 55? "

yup one minute Im alone in my car in the right lane listening to NPR and all of a sudden I look down for ONE second and the following happens:

The sunroof slides back, the car hops into the left lane with a LOUD roar from the engine and the RPMS running through 6000, the stereo changes from NPR to ACDC and the volume goes all the way up. My windows start moving up and down and the brake doesnt work....then my lips curl into a perma smile and next thing I know theres a guy with a flashlight in my face and a gun on his hip asking me if I know how fast I was going back there? My response-

How the hell should I know how fast I was going, I was just trying to stay on the road !!!!

You never really know whats going to happen when you get into a Volvo =D
Mine too, got nailed for 97 in a 65 zone the other day. :(No_sprint

97 in a 65 and 87 in a 55 is reckless and nothing to be proud of.

I can live with 10 mph over on the highway, just like most everyone else. That's typically the what all the other traffic is doing. 32-35 mph over the speed limit??? Give me a break. No one else is doing that except for wanna-be NASCAR punks who believe they are invincible. The world is not your playground. You should both have your licenses revoked and cars impounded.

Someday you're going to kill or injure someone, and I hope it's only you. Fate rarely seems that kind.
I was doing 115, on the ticket it's 97 though.No_sprint

Now get off my road! :) Just kidding.

The two lines the courts draw are at 15 and 26 over.

Gotta get it down to 85 or better. Shouldn't be a problem, no radar, no laser and I didn't see him clock me either. He estimated.

Nope, not kind, look at Russell Weller from Santa Monica, CA.
hahahah got to luv it baby YEAH !CARBON110

My original post was a joke. Just to point that out since you obviously didn't have your sarcasm radar on and apparently were feeling a little obtuse at the time. Hence your response. I understand perfectly where your coming from but NO SPRINT was in a school zone. As far as I know school zones are the only places you can go over 85!?!? =)

We all agree there are drivers out there that endanger all our lives, you won't EVER find me disagreeing with that since I felt the tail end of one on my bike. However "lightn up Francis" this NON-Cycling board may be used for poor attempts at humor at anytime ( have you been following the political discussions? )and you will lead a miserable life if you are in constant anxiety about what ifs and could have beens. That's not to say you need not be vigilant at times but just the same-

"" Life is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy to those who feel""
Horace Walpole

When I dirve fast in my car, which I only do on the interstate, it reminds of Socrates last words- ""I drank what!?!?""

ahahhahh hhahahahhahah hahaha haah hahah hehehehehe hoohohohho

whoooooooooo
School Zone? No way!No_sprint

I'm one of the bigger wise asses on this board, but I re-read your original post and still fail to see how anyone would consider it sarcasm. But if you say it is, it must be. It certainly wasn't well constructed.

In your free time, you might want to check out this primer on mastering sarcasm: http://www.packingheat.com/tutorials/sarcasm.html

Among other things, it says: Sarcasm is defined as "A keen, reproachful expression; a satirical remark uttered with some degree of scorn or contempt; a taunt; a gibe; a cutting jest." I'm still trying to find this in your post.
