Comedy category. Somewhat amusing. This is the flip side of it...

I think if one read his comment closely one might conclude that what he was saying was that the original poster's video was 'comedy category, somewhat amusing'....but the second video is the 'flip side' of that somewhat amusing original video.

Whatever, it's still inappropriate content to post.

I was not trying to be offensive or inappropriate.

I watched the original vid, and similar ones, and I'm floored. At some level, I'm sure there's a cultural difference but performing hoonage like that on what appears to be a public highway, with traffic moving in both directions, is beyond stupid to me. Hence the reason that I found the comedy categorization on YouTube amusing.

The video above has a couple of guys without seat belts drifting a POS on what are probably stock 15" tires. Surprisingly, there was very little traffic but you don't have to dig very deep to find some very scary situations, some of which end tragically and violently. But, as I mentioned above, I'm sure there are cultural differences that I'm just not comprehending.

I'll go back to resuming my normally scheduled posts of photographs and bike vids.

I am very grateful for both videos. I spent the whole afternoon watching all the "accidents" from those stupid idiots! I can't get upset about people doing stupid things or the people that line up along the street to watch! Natural selection at its finest!

Wow, that's quite stupid....and very telling of what can go wrong. You can see in that video that the doors and windows are closed at the beginning of the roll. The fact that two people were thrown likely means they weren't wearing seatbelts. All the people that say they want to be thrown clear of an accident are idiots. A bit gross yes, but this often gets the point across better than anything your parents may have told you about what can happen. You aren't indestructible, and you aren't in a racecar. Save the racing for the track with helmets, rollcages, and all that.

It's important to learn from other peoples mistakes because this is one you don't want to make yourself. Driving recklessly when it's just lonely you is stupid but in the middle of traffic with peds around? Selfish and inexcusable not to mention prideful.

Besides just cause he was in a Camry doesn't mean it's indestructible.
