    A good friend of mine had some cousins involved in a very serious accident, they were the two that lived in that crumpeled mess however. This is really making me think about how careful I am behind the wheel.

    edited-if you wanna see the stuff that badly, I can PM the link.

    Seriously, as much as I think the message is a good one, do you really think that link is appropriate for TB?

    Just making a point Mark, words just don't do it unfortunately :(- I don't intend to offend- I put the warning and note to the mods because I realized it may be more than is appropriate.

    I think that one where the brains spill out onto the guys lap may be a bit over the line...

    I can appreciate the message though. A friend of a friend (who I was actually friends with) wrapped his car around a lightpost because he was driving drunk. He had no seatbelt. He went through the windshield and landed about 50 feet away with his brains splattered on the pavement.

    He was a good guy.

    I know...as I said, the message is a good one, but the rules stipulate:

    "Obscene material is not permitted, nor are links to websites containing such material.t. If what you have to say wouldn't be suited for network TV, don't post it here"

    And I dare say, those photo's wouldn't make it on to network TV in Australia, let alone the US, which is far more conservative.

    that was the most horrifying car wreck i've ever seen. I say this because I drive like a chick sometimes--a relatively safe dick but still, that's gonna change.

    I edited the links to not include the brains spilling out and all teh gore, I think the smashed car is enough to make the point. Sorry if I offended guys. I was glad my buddy's family survived.

    Whoops...that was a girl whose brains spilled all over her lap. I can imagine the driver was sued into the ground.

    Not cool, or appropriate for this site at all IMO. Kids of all ages view here, and some could be pretty traumatized by this.

    No offense, but some bad judgement here.

    I think the photos should have stayed up for exactly those reasons. It'd give the kids something to think about while they're weaving through lanes at 100 mph in heavy traffic.

    I agree somewhat, I hate reckless, idiot drivers as much as anyone. Still, no one needs to see dead bodies, not here anyway IMO.

    I'll look at nipples (any nipples) gladly before stuff like that. Well, wait a minute.....

    You guys that think it's cool to drive fast and reckless should see that stuff in person. A pic doesn't do it justice.

    I'm so glad I missed the link... last time I saw pictures on the 'net of an accident, I couldn't sleep for weeks. It's different when it's a real person.
