We just want to say good luck, Hamster - we're all counting on you.
 
2006-09-21 01:26:42 PM  
Too bad. Great television.
 
2006-09-21 01:27:34 PM  
Our prayers and well-wishes are with you, Hamster. -'Fark This' and family.

Seriously bad news. Even I can't make a wisecrack about this.

Hope he pulls through--though with a brain damage I hope they don't put him in a sitcom.
 
2006-09-21 01:27:53 PM  
Nicely played img.fark.com trifecta.
 
2006-09-21 01:28:09 PM  
jeez dude...good luck
 
2006-09-21 01:28:28 PM  
And that's why a "presenter" shouldn't drive at 300mph.


/best wishes on a speedy recovery
 
2006-09-21 01:29:14 PM  
Hope his teeth are okay...
 
2006-09-21 01:29:33 PM  
Poop.
 
2006-09-21 01:29:35 PM  
Well, that's him kicked of Top Gear for certain now. There is only room for one Jeremy Clarkson on the show.

Blues_X: All three of them, including Hamster, have been car guys longer than I've been on this earth. That deserves respect.
 
2006-09-21 01:30:05 PM  
Oh my heart bleeds. He was driving a jet-powered car at 300 miles an hour. I feel for his wife and kids, but you know if my significant other said over the breakfast table one morning 'hey honey, guess what I've got planned today...' I might raise a few objections with the selfish farker.
 
2006-09-21 01:30:37 PM  
They can rebuild him.
Faster. Better. Stronger.
 
2006-09-21 01:30:58 PM  
I truly hope he makes a full recovery. The few times i have been able to see Top Gear was awesomely fun.

On Thursday afternoon, the dragster was lifted on to the back of a lorry and taken away for forensic examination at an undisclosed location.

What doesn't Cheney have a hand in?
 
2006-09-21 01:31:01 PM  
The article makes England seem like the least fun place on the planet.
 
2006-09-21 01:31:08 PM  
Top Gear is the best car show ever made. Hammond made a great part of it, it'd be terrible if he gets replaced.

Hang in there Hamster!
 
2006-09-21 01:32:08 PM  
Perhaps the carravanning crowd sabotaged his car?
 
2006-09-21 01:32:11 PM  
I wish him and his family all the best and a speedy recovery.
 
2006-09-21 01:32:14 PM  
So sad.


Top Gear is suspose to start soon, it wont be the same with out him.


/Get well Hamster.
 
2006-09-21 01:32:41 PM  
Bill Frist has examined the videotape and determined that he can make a full recovery.
 
2006-09-21 01:32:49 PM  
Last year, lobby group Transport 2000 called for the show to be taken off the air accusing it of "glamorising speed and failing to make the connection with danger on the roads".

Connection made.
 
2006-09-21 01:35:19 PM  
Godspeed, Hamster.
 
2006-09-21 01:35:33 PM  
Why not all the same vitriol that was given to Steve Irwin?
 
2006-09-21 01:35:48 PM  
I submitted this with a better headline about driving a Stingray.
 
2006-09-21 01:36:19 PM  
At first I thought it said Fifth Gear and I was worried that it might be Tiff Needell. Man I love that guy.

Sorry about hear about this though.
 
2006-09-21 01:36:26 PM  
Tire was punctured by a stingray barb.
 
2006-09-21 01:36:34 PM  
Good luck hamster...so many people want him to pull through this...including me!
 
2006-09-21 01:36:35 PM  
weird. everything in the article is 'MPH'

shouldn't it be KPH?

/being the BBC and all
 
2006-09-21 01:38:04 PM  
Fark This!: Blues_X: All three of them, including Hamster, have been car guys longer than I've been on this earth. That deserves respect.

Congrats on being young. And I didn't say that he doesn't deserve respect.

But being a "car guy" doesn't mean you're qualified to drive a 300+mph land speed record car. If anyone on the show should have driven it, I'd say it would be the race car driver they use to test cars on the track, The Stig.
 
2006-09-21 01:38:13 PM  
One of the dumbest things guys ever say: Hey, guys, watch me/this!

/300 mph?
//wonder if he got a ticket for that?
///what kind of mileage would you get at 300 mph?
 
2006-09-21 01:38:32 PM  
Top Gear is an amazing show and all the presenters are extremely charismatic and fun to watch (Yes, even that jackass Jeremy). A car accident is one of those things you just kinda expect, but it's still tragic. Get well, Hamster!
 
2006-09-21 01:38:36 PM  
please:

I think this guy is dumb. You do dangerous shiat on tv, you can pay the price just like anyone else. People get on tv and get big ego's and think theyre invincible. Getting in a 'jet car' and going 300mph? better call your kids and tell them you love them first and say 'hope you have an ok life if i dont make it'.
 
2006-09-21 01:40:13 PM  
We just want to say good luck, Hamster - we're all counting on you.
 
2006-09-21 01:40:17 PM  
Why not all the same vitriol that was given to Steve Irwin?

Because Hamster didn't exploit wildlife for a living?

Because you expect something bad can happen at 300mph?

Because Steve Irwin is dead and dead people are funnier than sick people?

Because Steve Irwin isn't dead. Elvis, Jim Morrison and he are the management team at an undisclosed Outback Steakhouse.

Sir Charles

Yeah, why would they use the English measuring system? Who knows.
 
2006-09-21 01:41:54 PM  
Sir Charles, England uses miles

2006-09-21 01:43:16 PM  
I hope he pulls through and can get back on the show.

what kind of mileage would you get at 300 mph?

7-10 imperial gallons per mile.
 
2006-09-21 01:43:39 PM  
Sir Charles: shouldn't it be KPH?

Britain is resisting the EU's ongoing attempt to impose the metric system on it. All speed limits are still shown in MPH.
 
2006-09-21 01:43:56 PM  
100% danlpoon.
 
2006-09-21 01:46:14 PM  
Wow, what an unexpected shame. 300 miles per in a jet car and crashes. Woes me. I mean, he got balls, but I ain't wastin time giving a fark about this. People amaze me.
 
2006-09-21 01:48:56 PM  
Oh, and having 2 daughters and doing this? REALLY farked up priorities.
 
2006-09-21 01:49:51 PM  
Car people understand.

You must be one of the fuzzy animal people.
 
2006-09-21 01:52:16 PM  
Jeremy made him do it, the bastard.

You win, thread over!

No. I love driving fast shiat as much as the next guy, but if I die in a crash, don't write an article about it like it's a farking shame and DON'T cry or worry about me. It happened because of my choices. Bad choices. So, if your a badass "car person", cool. But you don't deserve any sympathy of something happens.

//And I think you mean "furries"?
///I hate the "furries" stuff
////very gay.
 
2006-09-21 01:54:06 PM  
When will people realize that when our body sends an adrenaline rush it is saying "this is dangerous dude"? Thrill seekers will always pay the price because thrills = danger. We have this strange idea that because we take all these precautions that bad things can't happen.
 
2006-09-21 01:54:48 PM  
boomaze: Oh, and having 2 daughters and doing this? REALLY farked up priorities

Oh yeah. Because once someone has kids they should IMMEDIATELY stop doing the things that they love because they could get hurt!

:wank:
