Storytime w/ Laser02

So. Last night I was driving. Minding my own business, right? And I come to this four-way stop. So, naturally, I slow down. And there had been this 1970s-ish Firebird behind me for the past two lights trying to catch up to me presumably, so I could beat him. Anyhow... So he was in the lane behind me. And the lane next to me was clear. So he tried to slide over into that lane... Unfortunately! There was a Toyota Forerunner that happened to be in the Firebird's blindspot and the Firebird slid into the front end of the Forerunner. And then bounced off of it and into a curb. His wheels looked like this: \ \ even though he was going straight. His car started smoking. I mean, pouring smoke. I'm not sure if it was the wheels burning up as he drove it or what. So... Not thinking it was any of my responsibility, I drove off. He started to follow me (I think he was trying to flee the scene) with his wheels like this: \ \. Of course, since I had four active wheels I was much quicker. I made my turn and he followed but barely made it through as he slid about 280* and almost hit another curb before recovering. Finally the Forerunner got him to pull into Weinerschnitzel where I assume they worked out their differences.

And that brings me to today: I was going 55mph or so-the-speed-limit-said on Washington Avenue. There was a Cavalier next to me. All of the sudden!




.. The Cavalier's front driver side tire BLEW. I mean it blew. He must have overinflated it and it got too hot in the 106* heat or something! The noteworthy thing about this was that... Normally when a tire blows you just pull over and change it, right? This thing exploded and ripped his damn fender off! The whole front driver side of the car from the wheel well forward was a huge mangled mess of aluminum or tin or whatever they used to make that POS. And the part before his door was like a foot from where it was supposed to be.

Don't ever buy a Cavalier.
