Hehe one time I was driving along in "convoy" on the way to a BBQ, we pass a cyclist and I go, "ooh, 10 points!"

As I'm explaining the concept to my passengers my friend driving the car in front of us holds his arm out of the window and stretches out his fingers twice as if to say "10!", we continued to laugh for several minutes :D

It was actually a few years back.

Fortunately for me, the guy was drunk enough that when he tried to stab me, he hit the sternum, and that gave me a chance to twist the knife out of his grip, at which point he legged it.

I got hit in the head with a brick once, then when I reached for the basballbat i found myself staring down the barrel of a handgun.


and still rag beats me by getting knifed!


Anyway, I forked myself up way better with the failed stirrup-pump.

Oh, I'm supposed to stay on topic...ahum...


Yippy...I got my licence too!!

Ah, well, there's reason why my mates consider me nigh on immortal... things that should have been nasty often leave me with no more than a scratch or bruise.

Just born lucky with respect to that I guess. The downside is that I seem to get in more situations than normal that require that plain dumb luck.

EDIT: To contribute a little, I'm still a learner driver, on not a huge number of lessons - given that I had to work it in around university work.

However, I have now mostly stopped stalling the car. :P

A family on bicycles though will get you 50 points easily :D


Have you been playing Carmageddon? :P
I remember myself powersliding through a horde of sheep for dozens of kills in one combo. (animals count too, you know)
In the later versions of the game you could also use some kind of flame thrower on the pedestrians, which resulted in a "Barbecue bonus!" :D

For the people who dont know the game, its a racing game where you have to kill your opponents by ramming them, and gain time and points bonus by driving over people and animals.

Lol very funny Brian.

I have stopped stalling almost all of the time as well, still get the occasional slip up, but then who doesn't.

Interestingly enough, there is a film coming out in september, called death race, sounds pretty much exactly like that.

Haha, me and my family have contests to see who can go the longest without stalling the car, me and my dad win all of the time, with my sister always taking last place :lol:

That sounds really nasty, man.... I would hate to be attacked. But, fortunately, if I get accosted outside my home, I have a knife. If someone breaks into my house, I have a handgun. Which I am highly proficient with.
