Me and my friends almost crashed in his 94 taurus station wagon today. We went off the road, back on it, swerved into the other lane, and almost off the road again into a pond. We were only doing about 40 mph, but it was raining. Nothing happned to us, or the car...
It was just freaky though.... i had no idea what was going on, i was so claim, and in simpler terms "out of it" when we where sliding around. It felt like i was going to die. Until after the fact did i notice what we really did. i alwasy get this way when somthing really bad is about to/ is happening
I get wierd feelings all the time, like something bad is going to happen. I normally dream about bad things that end up happening in real life.
But I figure if something happens and I go, then it was my time. Thats why you have to make the most out of every day that you're alive! Remember that you're also given the gift to make someones day better, whethers its just giving them a nod of the head and a "How ya doin today?", or a handshake and a smile!

God, i hope i dont speed with my bronco II, i'll roll the thing like 5 times.
If your stupid you will...
I used to speed in my 82 f150... Untill I realized a few things...
GAS... When you hit the pedal, its costing you big $$$
Legality... Got an 18 over a few days after I got my lisance
Wear and tear, and its dangerious... Flip it? Your SOL if it doesnt run/drive. Your up the creek if you hurt somebody/somebodys property
Keep in mind that if you flip it, and dont hit anybody, that your legally supposed to report it... I wouldnt.
Sliding around isnt a big deal if the driver's in control, and knows his/her car's handling charactoristics.
Its when they're intoxicated (beer, or pot) thats when its dangerious...
How old are you? I'm 16, and I'm invincible for right now...
Under car level 1 tech. Still learning all that I can
Usually when I have that feeling, something VERY bad happens. Last time I had it, I was riding with a buddy of mine so I did the smart thing and got dropped off at my truck. 2 hour later he called to tell me that he fell asleep at the wheel and his truck was now in the Conecuh River. The time before, I was doing a slide around a curve on a 4-wheeler when the one of the tires caught and it rolled 6 times. The time before that, I very nearly went to jail in Panama City. So my advice is never ignore the bad feeling.
