YES! A sycophant for me!

All of the attitude exhibited by young people today, along with the need to make a $12K econobox car look like a $40K GT car can be blamed directly on the movie "The Fast and the Furious" and it's star, Vin Diesel.

If this is how some kids get motivated then so be it. I was 19 at the time I saw the first movie, however I didn't go racing down the parkway at 100 Mph into traffic.

Why do these kids have licenses anyway? If I had a kid that I just learned raced down a road, I would either take his car away or kick him out of my house. If the justice system is too busy giving people tickets for going 5 mph over the limit, then maybe I should take matters in my own hands.

So daddy gave his 16 year old keys to the Explorer... was he nuts?!

When I was sixteen, my dad gave me a beat up used car that go barely go 70mph, and only if I kept it floored for over a minute.

It was a good thing too, because I wrecked it in no time. :disgust:

So killing an innocent mother of six is your idea of "culling the herd"?
