    Today i took my road test to get my drivers liscence. Boy was i nervous. It didnt help when the tester stepped into the car and was probably 6'4'', 275 pounds, and black (not to be rascist, its just an image). He was pretty bitchy the whole time, complaining a lot about minor things.

    But i passed and now have my liscence. Feels weird.

    just moving from a town that has the highest amount of drivers running over, poor, innocent, hard-working, law-abiding pedestrians - you have no room to talk...

    I bought my car then I went over to take my road test. I passed, then I drove home. How'd I get there? Older friend of course.

    My car sucks. 1987 toyota corolla. But its mine. Funny thing, on the way home from the test, my AC sounded likeit was dying, and got progressively worse. Something is stuck in the fan. Sounds like some hamsters in a blender. No AC for me for a while/forever, dependingon how it goes.

    I remember when I first got mine. I borrowed a friends car and it stalled two or three times. I thought for sure I was going to fail, but the tester was cool about it. Good thing he didn't see the roaches in the ashtray. :cool:

    You know, there's a point system involved. Pedestrians are worth 1 point, Bikers are 10, other cars are -5 points, and cop cars are -100. As far as animals go:
    Coons = 10 points
    Possums = 10 points
    Deer = Clipping is worth 15, the whole animal is 30
    Rabbits = 5 points
    Squirrels = 5 points


    Note: If I did not name an animal you have hit, ask me and I will consult my Official Roadkill Point System manual and get back to you.

    Having just visited recently, I can attest to this. It's crazy.
