It sounds like you guys are describing the way I drive. Fast, sideways around turns, and who need brakes? I did get sideways when I was the Glen, the guy riding shotgun nearly shit his pants when I pulled that stunt.

I used to drive like that when I used to play nfs HP2 back when I was 12. Then I found out in Underground that brakes kept me from hitting the walls on corners. Then I found that my times improved dramatically even though I was slowing down on corners. (not hitting walls does help) Then I told my brother my secret. Now we are basically neck and neck when it comes to nfs most wanted (aka the best racing game ever), except I've fallen behind a little bit because I'm used to Forza 3 acuracy so the game felt a little to slow to react so I was over correcting like a bitch/noob. and sucked at our most recent match up. I then put the steering tightness on super twitchy (where I used to absolutely hate it) and did better but it still feels a little slow even then. lol.

What floats my boat? Standing in my buddy Ethan's driveway and seeing a Chevy cruze, cobalt, and my impala. Even my friends are Chevy people. Oh.... And beer. That floats my boat. A lot. One of two cities in Arkansas that sells liquor on Sundays is a ten minute drive from berryville. Corey is one happy boy right now. Very happy. My fiancée and two of my best friends, three Chevys, and Beer. Gets me every time. It makes me year up a little.

I always park in the boonies cause people open their doors like assholes here. And nobody is going to walk out in the boonies to be looking at it so close they're molesting it. :)

What cracks me up, since we're on the topic of parking, are mostly the old people who attempt to park in the handicapped spaces and end up taking like 6 spaces. They make the spot huge and they still miss. If you can't park, don't drive; if your not in gear and you still can't get it right, call it a day.

I have watched in terror many times at old people parking, they keep backing out and pulling back into exactly the same spot. Eventually they give up and call it good, then forget the car is still in gear... I'm a firm believer that people should have to pass an annual driving test after the age of 60.

made $136 today at my second job and $42 at PnS, I like that. I don't like that I had to work 14 hours to do that. (yes, I said 15 on gmg, but that was including the 20 miles per hour, literally, drive from one place to the other)
