FTFA: About a year ago, he welded together the front of a Ford F650 to the back of a Ford Excursion. Fittingly named "King Kong" on the license plate, the charcoal gray-colored truck is more than 8 feet tall, about 20 feet wide and about 25 feet long.

...

When cruising around in his truck, he's not worried about the rising gas prices. It costs about $400 to fill both 50-gallon diesel fuel tanks.


I'd like to know how he's able to "cruise around," considering that the majority of highway lanes are 12 feet wide (16 feet on the Interstate system). Does this asshat take up 2 lanes?

Monroe, MI to Los Angeles, CA: ~2,300 miles

Onboard fuel capacity: 100 gallons (2x 50gal tanks) Assuming he started with full tanks and ended with almost empty tanks (worst case) that's 300 gallons.

2300mi / 300gal = 7.6 mpg

I get such a kick out of the folks who immediately suggest compensation issues when someone buys a bigger car or house than they have, or can afford. You're allowed to be jealous, but it makes you look ignorant.
 
2008-05-06 10:01:30 AM  
Clearly they got the dimensions mixed up in the article... I'm thinking 8 feet wide and 20 feet tall (which is still ridiculous).

I'm surprised people aren't bashing him for having such a stupid ridiculous piece of crap... if you don't have a NEED for something that big it's just a blingy show-off waste.

It also annoys me that the FA says "he" welded the two pieces together and then goes on to say that he had a shop do it... I'd have a lot more respect for this a-hole if he at least had the skills to do the job himself.

Personally, I would like to thank him for contributing much more to our economy via gasoline taxes than most people. It's the big cars that subsidize the gas sipping bunch. When we collectively start to conserve gas, we will no doubt see our taxes rise to make up for the lost revenue.

You can check out more similar toys here:

There are those who like and admire, those who don't want (aren't interested), and those who spout off about other's desires as idiotic and compensating.

I think your crappy apartment is idiotic but I won't suggest that you're compensating because of it.

The trucks are awesome. You'll recognize this as soon as you mature beyond your jealousy.

Nope, definitely not 20 feet wide... and from the guy standing in the article's picture you can tell it's not that tall either. Probably 8x8 ish, though it may be as long as claimed.
 
2008-05-06 10:16:01 AM  
The article states that the front of a F650 was installed on an Excursion. I think that might supposed to be the other way around, considering the flared out sides at the rear of the truck.

I think there must be a mistake with the width measurement of 20".
To the best of my knowledge it isn't street legal at that width and would require escort vehicles carrying wide load signs both in front and behind.
As for the length of his penis; I think this rig gets him off and another person would only be an accessory that not only isn't needed but couldn't be installed.

Que ?

An F650 is wider than an Excursion, so the back body has to have wheelarch flares to accommodate the F650 rear axle. Makes perfect sense. Pics.(p)

$200k for an SUV that handles, and drinks diesel, like a commercial truck, OTOH, makes no sense whatsoever.

Why don't you drive more cautiously considering you're in a go-cart. Don't pull up so close that drivers can't see you. If you can't see them in their mirror, it's YOUR fault buddy. Do you curse school buses and trucks as well?

I can't believe that you all are the same folks who scream for individual rights when it comes to marijuana or prostitution. You all are no better than the fundies who cry that everything is an affront to them. The guy worked hard and to reward himself, he made a truck. He's not trying to do anything to offend you, so what the fark are you concerning yourself with him for? If you think he's an attention whore, then why are you feeding him?

I would never buy one either. Its not really a practical thing to have and I'm not really into showing off. To me it simply screams 'I have a big truck' which is fine by me. If the man wants a big truck and he can afford it then let him have one.
What screams 'douchebag' IMO are all of the smug, self-righteous lamers who drive their Prius around at 20 MPH in order to never turn on the gasoline engine so they can boast about their incredible gas mileage and about how much more they love the earth than everyone else.

Why don't you drive more cautiously considering you're in a go-cart. Don't pull up so close that drivers can't see you. If you can't see them in their mirror, it's YOUR fault buddy. Do you curse school buses and trucks as well?

And MGs suck.


In a parking lot, backing out of a spot. I saw him, stopped, started to reach for the horn, and he backed right into me. Last week in Amsterdam, the van driver saw a parking spot, and just started backing into it without looking. In both cases, the other driver was clearly at fault, and could have seen me had they bothered looking. One of the problems with a lot of SUVs is crap visibility out the main rear view, and they seem not to bother with the wing mirrors.

And MGs f*cking rock when you're driving up the Bealach na Ba. Compared to other relatively new classic roadsters, they're cheap, easy to work on, fun to drive, and parts are readily available. Lucas sucks, I'll grant you, but what's not to love about them? Plus (in my opinion), the MGA is just about the prettiest car ever made.

Sure there's some idiotic stuff about the truck. It's too big, probably handles like a pig and gets 8-9 MPG highway if he's lucky. But it's undoubtedly cool and every guy in this thread would stare at it if it drove by or was parked outside your health club or whatever.

And, for the record, the entire "penis extension/compensation" stuff is just stupid stupid stupid. People buy porsche's because they are fast, they handle like go karts and they look cool. Same reason people buy Ferrari's and Lambos and Skylines, etc. People buy big trucks because they are powerful as hell, big and imposing and can go most anywhere.

We all agree MGs suck (spitfire man myself) but as a professional driver (it says so on my resume) I have to side with dersk. No one knows how to drive. We had a huge influx of foreign truckers in PA and for a while the big-rigs were causing lots of accidents but they finally got better and now (as it was in the past) 18-wheelers are easier to contend with. Big-rigs and school buses don't vie for my parking space so I don't have a problem with them.

No, but somewhere, someone thinks that your tatoo would distract the people in their office. I personally, think your nose piercing is gross. Where do we draw the line? We have laws against driving an unsafe vehicle. You seem to forget that:

IF THE VEHICLE WERE DEEMED TO BE UNFIT FOR THE ROAD, THE DMV WOULD NOT HAVE ALLOWED HIM TO REGISTER IT.

No need to potificate about some imagined tragedy or some situation that you pulled from your ass about the dangers of the vehicle.

To be totally honest, I've never seen an SUV *intentionally* take up 2 parking spots. That's usually the middle-aged balding guys with a brand new sports car that do that stunt. One day (back when I had my beat-up old Explorer), when I had nothing better to do with my time, I parked right next to a guy who did that (not TOO close, but a normal parking distance, like 2 feet or so away). He did not appear too pleased.

That's the competitive American spirit at work, m'boy.

People don't have anything to compete against with random strangers, so they find ways to make up a competition.

"I can drive a fancier car than you"
"I can drive a bigger car than you"
"I can drive faster/more reckless than you"
etc.

I've wondered for years how, when I'm speeding enough on the interstate to go to jail for it, there are still people that will give me pissed-off looks as they fly around me in the left lane.

This is the only explanation I've come up with. Some people just have to be competitive. They have to win (or at least think they are winning).

The "small dick" metaphor is really just is an attempt to explain unexplaniable competition.

No one can see my tattoo at work. But whatever.

I DO still have a problem with this guy, though it isn't a big one. I'm arguing for the sake of arguing at this point.

I think he's a douchebag. Not because I want his 'cool' toy. (Which I do not think is cool, like you think my piercing is gross.)
Not because I envy his ability to waste cast amounts of money.
Not because I think he's overcompensating. (I don't, I've never really liked that generalization).

Just because I do. I think his vehicle is grotesque and that iit is a waste of money and fuel.

He's not trying to do anything to offend you, so what the fark are you concerning yourself with him for? If you think he's an attention whore, then why are you feeding him? And someone please tell me when trying to get attention became an offense that was punishable by death? What made you pick out that shirt you have on? Why did you comb your hair this morning? You'd like to create a favorable impression on the people around you. Well, this guy accessorized by getting a truck instead of a tatoo or a nose piercing. So what. Go find something else to worry about, until the day that he cuts YOU off...unlikely as that is to happen. You're going to give yourself an ulcer.

You know, your statement makes the blanket assumption that everybody would want to own/drive one of those things given the chance to do so.

Actually my statement makes the very true assertion that all of the people howling in rage over this guy's choice in transportation are actually jealous of him and want something like this but cannot afford it. I'm sure most people simply don't care. I doubt if many people would actually want something like this once they pushed past the 'Wow!' factor. It's not something that's practical to own.
Unlike most of the people venting their spleens I have looked at these and actually considered getting one because of the 'Wow!' and 'cool' factors. I decided against it because after doing some real thinking on the issue I decided that it would probably just sit most of the time and its kinda pricey to use as a paperweight.

There are two types of environmentalists. There are the majority, who are concerned about the plight of human life on earth if, say, global warming came to pass. And then there are the minority, who really don't care about the fate of humanity on earth but are rather concerned with its destruction. They don't care, for example, if agreements essentially outlawing the production of oil by 2050 destroy the benefits to human life of civilization as we know it. "Tough," they imply or (in a few cases) have outright said. The anti-human minority are having much of the legwork for their cause done by the pro-human, pro-life-on-earth majority. Only when the gap between these two mindsets is explicitly exposed will we reach the point where the environmentalist movement, as we know it, will become irrelevant -- and the majority will look to science and business, rather than political pressure groups, to help human beings evolve new forms of energy use.

The writer is exaggerating or a retard. The thing is exactly as wide as a Ford F650 or a Ford Excursion. Also, assume the guy in the pic is 6 feet tall (except he is slouched, so the apparent height is probably 5 feet). That makes the vehicle about 20 feet long an maybe 7 feet tall.

We all agree MGs suck (spitfire man myself) but as a professional driver (it says so on my resume) I have to side with dersk. No one knows how to drive. We had a huge influx of foreign truckers in PA and for a while the big-rigs were causing lots of accidents but they finally got better and now (as it was in the past) 18-wheelers are easier to contend with. Big-rigs and school buses don't vie for my parking space so I don't have a problem with them.


As a professional driver, can you please tell your colleagues to stop pissing in plastic bottles and throwing them out on the highway? I think professional drivers should be able to manage a piss stop, if they can haul their lardasses out of the truck cabs.

Yeah... and everybody who criticizes Britney Spears' music is jealous because she's more famous than they are... and everybody who calls Paris Hilton an obnoxious coont is jealous of all her money...

It couldn't POSSIBLY be because Britney Spears' music sucks, or that Paris Hilton is an annoying twat... or that this is an ugly stupid eyesore that will get in people's way, like the thousands of other similar ugly stupid eyesores that we've all dealt with on the road.

When people do stupid shiat like this, the best "regulation" IS the backlash. Censuring people is a very valuable tool in our society. When your neighbor doesn't cut his grass for months on end and fills his yard with rusted out Camaros up on blocks and throws an old sofa and minifridge on the porch, you censure him and complain and let everyone know what a douchebag he's being. This discourages people from being douchebags...

It doesn't mean you're jealous of the long grass and the rusted out Camaros and the sofa and the minifridge... It means you're sick of dealing with douchebags.

So, pretend this is "cool" all you want, and convince yourself these people are just "haterz," but outside of car show vehicles that get dragged around from civic center to civic center on trailers... these things are an ugly, annoying, heaping temple to douchebaggery and insecure attention whoring.

Furthermore the amount of consumption is a direct result of how much this guy actually drives his truck. If he's only driving it 50 miles a week he burns a little over 7 gallons of gas, assuming 7 MPG. I burn more fuel than that in my VW in a week. I realize that he drove it to California and back but I'm gonna assume that's not a regular thing. It probably spends most of it's time in the driveway.

Shut up. Just shut the f*ck up. You can no more determine what anybody "howling in rage" on an internet message board wants than said "howlers" can determine what this guy's real motivation for building this truck are. I, for example, agree with a lot of people in this thread that this thing is a stupid, extravagant, useless waste of money. I don't begrudge anyone the right to drive a big inefficient vehicle, especially if they have a legitimate use for it, like hauling construction equipment or towing a boat.

It's not just sorta wasteful, it's the epitome of "fark everyone else, fark the world, I'm going to eat up resources, pollute the environment, and throw money in a bonfire" pointless wastefulness. Tattoos and piercings are minor expenses and don't affect anyone other than the person who gets them.

So...yeah...if you can't parse that argument, you definitely are stupid.

I really wish it were possible here in the states to live close to work or have mass transit available in every area, like a lot of European areas. Unfortunately, I live 20 miles from where I work because, at the time, it was the only area I could afford to live in. The best I can do is carpool with my wife and one of my work friends.

They must have spent their monthly income keeping this thing running, since they were living where I lived, and they couldn't have had much money.

No need to tell me about Redneckus Americanus - I grew up about 100 yards from a tobacco farm. I keep hearing on the American news that gas prices are "approaching European levels", as if the prices aren't going through the roof here too.

MadAsshatter: Furthermore the amount of consumption is a direct result of how much this guy actually drives his truck. If he's only driving it 50 miles a week he burns a little over 7 gallons of gas, assuming 7 MPG. I burn more fuel than that in my VW in a week. I realize that he drove it to California and back but I'm gonna assume that's not a regular thing. It probably spends most of it's time in the driveway.

True. After the novelty of that thing wore off, I bet it's a hassle to just go to the store. Probably pretty sweet for a road trip though.

Yeah... and everybody who criticizes Britney Spears' music is jealous because she's more famous than they are... and everybody who calls Paris Hilton an obnoxious coont is jealous of all her money...


I didn't care for Ms. Spears music the few times I've heard it and reports of Ms. Hilton's doings are pretty much a guaranteed channel change driver for me. You miss the point entirely. Its not the fact that people have these feelings that marks them as jealous. As I've stated a couple of times already I think the thing is too impractical to own as well. Its the fact that its clear that they have an emotional investment in no one owning something that's out of their price range. All of the arguments about blocking views and wasting fuel are clearly smokescreens as the road is full of other vehicles that do both but don't elicit the same responses.
And yes, if I came across someone seething with rage about Ms. Spears musical abilities or seething with rage about Ms. Hilton's antics I would would assume that jealousy was driving their, clearly far out of proportion, reactions as well.

Over-consumption... how is this determined? By "need?"

Don't be fatuous, Carl.

Of course it's "over-consumption" as measured on the baseline of all other vehicles on the road vs. their purpose.

But this guy has to pay for the gas, so be it.

But the minute he starts screaing for oil windfall taxes or a Fed Gas Tax holiday is the day I punch him in the dick. He made his bed; he can lie in it.

I'd much rather see that thing going down the road than some beat up VW with a leaking exhaust, rust spots, and Indigo Girls stickers all over it

so what if he wastes gas? Lots of people do. Why single him out?

If wasting gas is such an issue with you people and you have no biases, holy shiat, we had better put a stop to amateur pilots who fly as a hobby...because the last time I checked, they take off, fly all over hell, and land in the same place they took off...

I'm going to have to disagree here, but not for the reason you think (I mean I too think it's stupid, but to each his own). With the exception of the moron who claimed the irresistable urge to slash the guy's tires, nobody has said anything about making it illegal.

They have just said that the guy is a douche, probably dangerous on the road and not a "good citizen" because he drives that monster gas guzzler for no reason other than he can.

He can own that thing and others can call him for being a douche. It's the American Way.

I think you just need to get a thicker skin.


=============================================

Well since the anger isn't directed at me, the thickness of my skin is irrelevant. I would counter that the people complaining need to get thicker skin since it is they who seem to have a problem. People can have their opinions of the vehicle, but I don't get the angry backlash against a seemingly hard-working guy who made a big truck.

Why don't you all protest when the Oscar Meyer Mobile is floating around the highways? It has to be much more dangerous to drive a giant hotdog. I think the anger is a bit of jealousy. IMHO, its the "bling" that most people have a problem with (TVs. videogames). Now, had he turned a truck with the same dimensions into the Starship Enterprise, this thread would be a lot more light-hearted and he same people crying about this would probably be booking flights to go see it.

Clandestine digital operative:
We all agree MGs suck (spitfire man myself) but as a professional driver (it says so on my resume) I have to side with dersk. No one knows how to drive. We had a huge influx of foreign truckers in PA and for a while the big-rigs were causing lots of accidents but they finally got better and now (as it was in the past) 18-wheelers are easier to contend with. Big-rigs and school buses don't vie for my parking space so I don't have a problem with them.

As a professional driver, can you please tell your colleagues to stop pissing in plastic bottles and throwing them out on the highway? I think professional drivers should be able to manage a piss stop, if they can haul their lardasses out of the truck cabs.

It's the vehicular equivalent of old ladies who creep along three abreast in a crowded store and fail to get out of the flow of traffic when they want to stop and look at something.

I don't really give a fark what YOU do, just stop getting in everybody else's farking way.

These trucks (whether welded together or not) get in everybody else's farking way, and they're not biatching about you because they're jealous... They're biatching about you because you're an annoying dumbass.

It's like walking down a crowded hallway with your arms out pretending to be an airplane... Those dirty looks aren't jealousy, they're annoyance and derision. You're not an object of envy, you're a retard, and the object of ridicule.

Agreed. I traded my caddy for a civic on sunday. I certainly don't feel bad for him having to shell out for gas- that's the price he pays for that thing. I got tired of paying it.

It's people like this who are currently responsible for the heavy investment by the private sector into alternate power sources. Keep the demand (and therefore price) high and there's an opportunity for a substitute. If you limit them and keep the gas cheap, then nothing will change.

If I were to psychoanalyze, I'd say that the anger is transferrance of anger for the average hausfrau or uber-redneck who owns the Expedition or Ford Super Duty with the 10 inch lift kit. FAR more often than not, they drive around oblivious to their surroundings.

I've been cut off or nearlty run over dozens of times by the above when I'm on my motorcycle, another lifestyle choice condemned by others. These people drive a super huge vehicle and don't take the extra time to ensure they are not overly burdensome on others. After all, the law of gross tonnage applies.

They expect that this guy is the same thing and thus load their anger on him because of it.

But it's not "clear." It's conjecture... and sounds like the sort of thing Limbaugh would say.

I'm sure lots of people own lots things out of their price range that they don't biatch about. Those things aren't giant ugly farking trucks that get in everyone's way.


All of the arguments about blocking views and wasting fuel are clearly smokescreens as the road is full of other vehicles that do both but don't elicit the same responses.


Sure they do... I swear and roll my eyes and get pissed off a dozen times a day because some asshole is blocking my view in traffic, or had his truck raised and failed to re-aim his farking headlights so they're hitting directly on my rear-view mirror, or because his SUV so fully occupies his parking space that it ruins the parking spaces on either side. (because even if you can squeeze in you have to try to squeeze out of your barely-open door and then trust that someone douchebaggy enough to drive such a monstrousity will actually take care not to door your car when they leave)

These things are annoying because they're oversized. It's like sprawling out in a crowded theater and throwing your elbows out over both armrests and propping your feet on the back of the chair in front of you while someone's sitting in it... You're being inconsiderate and taking up more than your "fair share" of space and inconveniencing others...

Sure, that's all informal and there are no laws against it... but requiring a law to make you considerate and cooperative and mindful of how you're affecting others pretty much makes you a douchebag.


And yes, if I came across someone seething with rage about Ms. Spears musical abilities or seething with rage about Ms. Hilton's antics I would would assume that jealousy was driving their, clearly far out of proportion, reactions as well.

He apparently has the money, and he acquired it through legal means I assume. Now, he gets blasted for wasting his money by people who, by their own admission, do not have the same level of income.

And further, you're mad at him for something that he hasn't done yet? He didn't ask your broke ass for anything. And the funny thing is, the gas tax is for people like you.

MyrnaMinkoff: So, why should you be offended?

Because I am, fancy-pants.

It's not just sorta wasteful, it's the epitome of "fark everyone else, fark the world, I'm going to eat up resources, pollute the environment, and throw money in a bonfire" pointless wastefulness.


if this big truck is wasteful or beyond this guy's means or impractical, then this problem should take care of itself. eventually, the weight of the waste and impracticality will fall down on top of this guy. if he can't handle it, that's his problem. if he can handle it, then I applaud him. I'm not going to invest my money like that, but I am not going to prevent him from doing what he wants with his money.

If he runs me off the road, i'll expect him to recompense me appropriately. If he is going to drive around in that thing, that is the risk he is taking.

'your a idiot' is full of awesomeness, by the way. I am going to make a "Your A Idiot" sign, throw on the most american flag covered shirt i can find, and go to the next rally and wait for the news photographers. Imminent fark meme will follow.

So, someone who accidentally drops a kleenex outside is just as wasteful and just as big of a polluter as someone who pours a dumptruck of garbage into a public water supply, right? Seriously, if you can't understand levels of wastefulness, then yes, you are a moron.

Nah... it's best to point out the stupidity before damage is done. Even if they don't listen, maybe someone will.

I'm as kumbaya and live and let live as the next guy, but that doesn't mean stupidity shouldn't be pointed out and acknowledged. Toupees? Stupid. Fat people in spandex? Stupid. Black socks and sandals? Stupid. Collagen "fish-face" lip injections? Stupid. Mullets? Stupid. Giant trucks? Stupid.

The point of censuring stupidity is to discourage it. It serves a very valid purpose in society.

Besides, you can't say "I told you so" if you didn't.
 
2008-05-06 12:07:33 PM  
Come on Myrna, that was weak.....We have been talking about wasting money here......and besides, "accidentally" dropping a Kleenex vs. dumping a load of garbage...One requires forethought. They are both criminal offenses technically, though the purposeful act of dumping garbage would carry substantial civil penalties as well....But again, that has nothing to do with the subject at hand here.....You are defending sunshine's "waste" but demonizing somebody elses....But to use your analogy, I can't afford my monthly trash bill, so I just dump my garbage along side the road for the month...Now, ABC Industries down the street is in a cost-cutting mode, so they do the same.

I never said that DROx. In fact, I understand that there is no oil crisis. Speculation is driving the price of gas up. However, for us, it's irrelevant. Gas is still expensive.

And further, you're mad at him for something that he hasn't done yet? He didn't ask your broke ass for anything. And the funny thing is, the gas tax is for people like you.

Such people --more often than not-- are exactly the ones asking for such things as I enumerated. Well, stupid liberals mainly want the windfall tax, not the intelligent ones (How's THAT for a logical fallacy?).

I don't think I understand your last sentence. The gas tax is primarily a tax used to improve "infrastructure," which really means it's given back to the states to help pay for roads and road improvements.

FTA: When cruising around in his truck, he's not worried about the rising gas prices. It costs about $400 to fill both 50-gallon diesel fuel tanks.

"Diesel burns slower than regular gasoline so it's not as bad as you would think. I don't have to fill it up for a long time," he said.

How can someone so stupid have that kind of money?

And maybe to HIM a big truck is just a way to get around in comfort.

Some people may think that you wear certain things to get attention. You probably can't see your piercings or tatoos unless you're in a mirror, so it stands to reason that they are for everyone else to see. But, who are we to tell you how to express yourself?

And I like how everyone is suddenly sooo concerned with other peoples oil consumption. What do you care if he only goes 6 miles on a gallon? You can't be foolish enough to think that his gas purchases are the tipping point that have driven demand through the roof. If you're that concerned about it, you should beat the life out of the next person you see idling in a little car. Maybe you can make them drive around the block instead of waiting so they won't offend you by wasting the gas that they paid for.

Who the hell needs "fashion" anyway?

Ordinary blue jeans and a $17 T shirt will take any man a long way.

Would someone pls do a Q&D shop on tomakaze's ridiculous re-shop?

Envy? Really? Is that the best you can do?

I love all the enviro-weenies complaining about gas. It's his truck and he is the one paying for it. Live your own life and stop complaining about others doing the same. Why is your "sustainability" argument better than his choice to pay $400 every time he fills up. It sure doesn't seem like the world is running out of oil. By the way, man made global warming is a hoax. You people up in MI should no that after this winter. Keep voting Democrat up there, it seems to be working well for you.

Here's more for the jealous types. (You know the guys. The ones who secretly want but can't afford the cool toys so they try to demean those who can afford in an effort to make themselves feel better. We all know one or two.)

Another cool vid for the jealous types to make penis jokes about. (pops. Not a rickroll)


IF YOU DON'T WANT THINK THIS IS AWESOME, YOU'RE A JEALOUS DOUCHEBAG

Seriously, every time I hear "you're just jealous", I picture whoever stated it buying one of those coffee tables made out of a used NASCAR tire.

That article did something that really annoys me.

For some reason many sentences were separated as if they were paragraphs.

Why would they do that?

Also, this annoying separation of sentences was not consistent as several paragraphs contained more than one sentence.Yet the sentence following the preceding randomly conjoined sentences was separated even though it continued the thought of the paragraph it was separated from.

There was nothing systematic about it.

It was as if the editor looked at the article and decided that a bunch of one sentence paragraphs looked really silly and decided to put a couple sentences together.

I wish I could be hired as an an aesthetic editor.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Space_Poet: DROxINxTHExWIND: You'd like to create a favorable impression on the people around you. Well, this guy accessorized by getting a truck instead of a tatoo or a nose piercing. So what.

My hair, piercings, and tattoos do not use 6 mpg. My hair, piercings, and tattoos do not block traffic and create a hazard for other vehicles. My hair, piercings, and tattoos do not have 2 50 gallon diesel tanks to waste an important commodity of the world.

In fact my tattoos and piercings aren't even visible unless I'm naked. To me, fashion is a personal statement, not an excuse to be as outrageous as possible to everyones detriment.
=====================================


And maybe to HIM a big truck is just a way to get around in comfort.

Some people may think that you wear certain things to get attention. You probably can't see your piercings or tatoos unless you're in a mirror, so it stands to reason that they are for everyone else to see. But, who are we to tell you how to express yourself?

And I like how everyone is suddenly sooo concerned with other peoples oil consumption. What do you care if he only goes 6 miles on a gallon? You can't be foolish enough to think that his gas purchases are the tipping point that have driven demand through the roof. If you're that concerned about it, you should beat the life out of the next person you see idling in a little car. Maybe you can make them drive around the block instead of waiting so they won't offend you by wasting the gas that they paid for.


Who are you to tell people that they shouldn't be expressing their opinion? I can see being anti-hippie, and loving how much something like that pisses off hippies.

But c'mon. This dude grew up in a trailer park watching monster trucks on TNT, thinking that's what rich people drove. Even though he knows better now, there was still a feeling he won't really have made it until he was driving something like he had built. And you're saying we shouldn't be making fun of this jackass? On Fark of all places?

Also, how many people defending this guy's right to drive a spectacularly ugly vehicle (often using the "it's expensive so it's cool" argument) criticized how people living conspicuously within their means acted in this thread. (pops)

To those saying stuff like 'ah your just jealous don't be hatin' just because he has a ridiculous truck and your don't'... Isn't fuel expensive enough? One reason fuel prices are high is because demand is high (or so the economists claim). It's farktards like this that helping to make fuel more expensive for everybody. Oh, and let's not forget about what the emissions are doing to the air we are breathing.

So thanks, a$$hole. Maybe you don't mind paying $4.23 a gal. for diesel so you can 'cruise' around in your Tonka, but plenty of other people do.

Heterodyne: Resentment flows strong in this thread.

let him have his car. Who cares?


As someone that pays too much for gas because too many people use too much of it - I care.

I realize that simple supply and demand isn't the only thing governing the price of gas, but when our nation demands 1/3 of the world's oil production but our population only makes up around half a percent of the world's, it puts us in a rather bad spot.
 
2008-05-06 06:21:56 PM  
I hope we go ahead and use up ALL the gas.

It stinks. I can has electric cars plz?

DROxINxTHExWIND: I can't believe that you all are the same folks who scream for individual rights when it comes to marijuana or prostitution. You all are no better than the fundies who cry that everything is an affront to them. The guy worked hard and to reward himself, he made a truck. He's not trying to do anything to offend you, so what the fark are you concerning yourself with him for? If you think he's an attention whore, then why are you feeding him? And someone please tell me when trying to get attention became an offense that was punishable by death? What made you pick out that shirt you have on? Why did you comb your hair this morning? You'd like to create a favorable impression on the people around you. Well, this guy accessorized by getting a truck instead of a tatoo or a nose piercing. So what. Go find something else to worry about, until the day that he cuts YOU off...unlikely as that is to happen. You're going to give yourself an ulcer.

I totally wouldn't care, if this were just his toy vehicle. If he had a vehicle with decent gas mileage for normal driving around and took the monster off roading or whatever - but this guy drives it around (like from MI to CA). This kind of waste keeps oil prices high and hurts us all

i like it. would i buy one? nah. but thats probably cuz i cant afford it. let the dude have his day though

While this vehicle certainly isn't the reason gasoline is so expensive.. he has a right to drive it. And everyone else has a right to make fun of it. There's that pesky personal freedom thing again.

Either way, who cares? It's a pointless vehicle, just as pointless as sitting in traffic in a 6 figure sportscar is.

Some douchebag:
"OMG, wont someone think of global warming????!!!
/Really dont care
//independly wealthy
///leaving planet soon"

People who don't care about others and who brag about being wealthy can't leave the planet soon enough IMO.

hyperbowlingball: That's the competitive American spirit at work, m'boy.

People don't have anything to compete against with random strangers, so they find ways to make up a competition.

"I can drive a fancier car than you"
"I can drive a bigger car than you"
"I can drive faster/more reckless than you"
etc.

I've wondered for years how, when I'm speeding enough on the interstate to go to jail for it, there are still people that will give me pissed-off looks as they fly around me in the left lane.

This is the only explanation I've come up with. Some people just have to be competitive. They have to win (or at least think they are winning).

The "small dick" metaphor is really just is an attempt to explain unexplaniable competition.

"I am so not competitive. In fact, I'm the least competitive, so I win"

So much ass-hattery in this thread! Just more proof that not only do many of you hate America, you just don't get it at all.

You have the right of free speech, but nowhere in the Constitution does it give you the "RIGHT" to be offended. You have to "CHOOSE" to be offended, which is your God given (oops) right to do.

FREEDOM! Most of you FAIL at it utterly!

When you let what others do rule your emotions and choices, you are little more than societal puppets!

I mock your weakness!

Subby here.

I only used "Someone is making up for something really small." line because I thought it would be the key to getting this greenlighted with the bonus of starting a nice flame war.

Looks like I was right....

Thanks all
