I used to speed sometimes.. but as far as I know, it's been nearly a year now since i've broke the speed limit... mostly due to incidents like these... to be perfectly honest: they scare the shit out of me.

Wow, that sure looks bad. No way should they have been doing 100 anyway

+1

I think if the road was about 50 yards wide and at least 5 miles long (as it would take at least a mile to get to speed) with THICK ASS padding lining the entire legnth and I had some super jumbo parachutes hooked up in the back, full roll cage and those really hi-tech seats and harnesses, I would do it!

Actually the Brain is the only organ in the body that is totally numb, it has no pain sensors.

I think he meant the brain takes that long to process pain in general.

Yeah, I don't ever see myself going that fast. I'm pretty sure my brain would not keep up near 200mph. What use is that, anyway? There's no Autobahn in the US. I prefer a car I can toss around effortlessly at highway speeds. That's a lot more fun to me.

Yeah a 200+ MPH car is a bit much. No one even on the Autobahn would be able to go that fast. They have shitty drivers just as here who slow EVERYTHING down to a crawl.

I could deal with a car that does 100MPH top speed. I couldn't get my 89 4-banger Mustang past 90 (gearing, needed more room, less hills and less turning) and that thing was great. I could fly (as fast as a 90 HP, 3500LB car could fly) up to speed and worm thru traffic with little difficulty. That too is dangerous, but the only problem I ever accounted in that thing was when some douche was in the left lane, had his cell up to his right ear and decided to come into MY lane while I was right next to him. I beeped, he looked over and started yelling at me and flipping me off!!

120 in a 1966 mustang is funner,

140 in a 1987 Merkur XR4Ti (heavily modded) is funnest!

That makes me never want to speed, not wear a seatbelt or do anything dangerous in a vehicle. It's sad but true, if more people saw those pictures then there would be a lot less speeding going around. Here in Arizona I see a whole lot of speeders, the average speed on the highway I'd say is about 80-100 and the speedlimit is 65. I also see a lot of accidents, especially rear enders because people are stupid and follow too closely and when the person in front hits their brakes then the person behind is screwed. I see at least 1 of those a day. Those pictures truely were the goriest thing I've ever seen and no way am I ever going to speed.
