i know exactly what your talking about. i speed. i do stupid sh1t sometimes, not nearly as much as i did a year ago when i was driving a slushie, but i still do, but i dont do stupid sh1t when there are cars around. in 18 now, if i was still driving a slushie, id probably be dead. finding SS and getting a stick changed my driving habits a lot. im a good driver. i dont tailgate, i use turn signals, i pay attention to my surroundings, i understand physics behind cars motion, unlike most people who think they can stop in 10 feet going 70mph or take a 90* corner in their exploder going 45. but i like to have fun driving every here and there.dshPls wrote: Maybe I'm young, but when it's 10pm and it's me and another car, straight road and no people walking around it's pretty damn safe. Maybe not legal, but we didn't even break the speed limit.
now im really gonna get flamed big time for this. last night, my buddy and i took his Z28 camaro out on the highway at midnight and had some fun. i was going 90 at the end of a long overpass onramp. with t tops off, no seatbelts. if anything happened, were both flying out the top and were dead. when i was going about a 100, lane jumping around semis, some other camaro started fvcking with us. so i floored it, got it up to 130 and caught up to a assload of slow cars blocking the highway. he jumped on the shoulder and was gone. i laid in the brakes and came about 3 feet from rearending some old piece of sh1t. got off the highway and smelt brakes for the next 10 minutes. that was stupid, reckless, if we got caught, wed both go to jail. if a cop tried to pull us over, id run. im not a us citizen, trouble with the law is pretty much guaranteed deportation, so id rather take my chances running from cops than pull over and get deported. and running from cops is so fun.
but damn, that was fun and a half. stupid, but so damn fun. would i do it again? hell yeah. in a heartbeat. high school and college are the best years of your life, if you dont have fun and enjoy life now, when are you? life sure aint fun with a 9-5 job, bills, wife bitching at you every minute your awake. so what if you can go legally buy booze, that dont make life fun when your old. i can get alcohol just as easy. nows when you get to enjoy life. go ahead. just be ready to accept the risks and always have a plan b for running from cops.
thats how life is. it gives you a taste of good times for 6-10 years, and after that it shits on your head for the rest of your life.
