    The funniest part is that the guy took off and left the car running.

    Talk about having a bad day.

    The driver is lucky to be alive, my cousin had a similar accident (albeit at lower speeds); the cable cut the engine in half and stopped right around the firewall area. She spent a night in the hospital and was fine the next day, while the car was destroyed.

    One of my friends somehow got a car stuck in a tree. I don't remember the specifics, but it was UP in a tree. He was completely fine though.

    I also had a friend flip a car, and had to kick out a window with his cast covered foot. He played a show the next day (I ran sound for it...). He later found a piece of glass stuck in the roof of his mouth, and had to pick it out. Ugh...
  5. okay, I've spent more than enough time trying to think of a funny thing to say in response to this idiots driving. But it pretty much speaks for itself. It's Firetruckin Hilarious. :D

    First thing that came to my mind when I saw this thread title was:

    "Jerry was a racecar driver
    22 years old
    One too many cold beers one night
    And wrapped himself around a telephone pole..."

    And thought it will be something sad...

    Then I opened it... and saw the picture... :eek: :eek: :D :D

    And BTW those wires are great! Would you've imagined they would hold a car thats over a ton? Some other wires simply break when they have a bit of ice hanging from them! :rolleyes:
  8. Huh. Saw the title to this thread and figured it'd be that V8 powered RX7 from the other thread wrapped around a pole...
