(Daily Mail)   Five passengers killed as the driver attempted to 'fly' his car on the hilly section of a rural road also known as 'thrill hills'. Probably should have gone 'cow tipping' instead   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 84

I don't tip cows, if they want to make more money they need to be more bootstrappy.

I wonder if their last moments involved a freeze frame and a voice over with a southern drawl making some witty observation.

It's the worst kind of justice. He's going to suffer the rest of his miserable life knowing what he did, but it took five innocent lives to make the point.

I live at the bottom of a 'thrill hill'.  We get a couple of accidents in the neighborhood and have had a couple cars flip over, some end up in a pond, over a retaining wall, run into brick mailboxes, or scrap their transmissions on the street and rip open the housing which causes the fluid to leak out (our favorite).

At least one Midwestern state has a law specifically prohibiting going airborne over hill crests.

Hmmm, hill jumping in Hamilton County? I'm from IL and wonder how far south that is...

Oh. Heh, might as well be Northern Kentucky, just like anything else south of I-74.

Once, when I was a teenage moosey, I just barely got my truck off the ground on a "thrill hill" type situation.  I was the only person in my vehicle, I was the only person on the road (I made sure the way was completely clear before I even tried) and when I jumped, my schoolbag came over the backseat and smashed me in the back of the head which smashed the front of my head (also known as my face) into the steering wheel.  I didn't lose control, slowed down, and promised I would never do that ever again because it was farking STUPID.

At least they died doing what they loved.
 
2013-11-26 09:18:07 PM  
And that's why people who are not complete farking idiots wear seatbelts. And also don't try to "fly" their cars.

That said, I was young and stupid once and I did drive my parent's cars pretty abusively and dangerously. As did some of my friends. However, I always wore my seatbelt because some small part of my brain was just a tiny bit non-idiotic and didn't want me to die.

I've caught air before, but I always did it where the duration was small, no large, long-distance or large-elevation drops.

There was a hill that one could muster enough velocity to reduce the effects of gravity on the vehicle as it descended the hill, but I never took it fast enough to leave the pavement entirely. The road was straight and at right-angles to the road it was straight (no slope to one side or the other) but I just didn't quite trust myself to keep the car straight and level, and the penalty for screwing up was too great.

Rednecks love some dangerous driving, though.  At a certain point, you have to admit that certain stereotypes didn't just show up out of thin air.

We had a similar road near where I grew up. There were several hills in a row on an otherwise flat and straight stretch. Very popular for this type of reckless behavior. Eventually the county effectively removed the hills and repaved. Not an easy nor inexpensive feat I expect. That said, the people engaging in the speeding to catch air were generally teenagers and not 49.

Got my dad's 73 Olds off the ground once. It was unpleasant for both me and the car. Must have bottomed out 3 times before it settled down.

After checking it out, found it was No worse for the wear. Detroit iron was tough.

A Chevey Trailblazer, or any SUV for that matter, is about the worst possible thing to use for high-speed/airborne antics.  Too top-heavy, as soon as you leave the ground, the vehicle instantly begins to tip in one direction or the other.  Any car will do this, but an SUV begins the roll even faster.  Actually, from my own stupid antics, the best vehicle to do it with is an EMPTY pickup truck, set at stock height, with stock tires.  No jacked up trucks, no low-riders.  The center of gravity is low enough that you don't get insta-roll as soon as you leave ground, and the suspension, being designed to carry a considerable amount of weight, will be less likely to come to pieces upon landing, as it can handle a bit more stress.  Cars with MacPherson struts are also terrible to jump - they often cram the struts thru the top of the strut tower on landing, more or less ruining the car.  Most any passenger car will suffer from frame issues after a couple of hard landings.  Also, a five-point harness and something in the passenger seat that weighs the same as you and is SECURELY strapped down are good ideas.

After you crash, and the cop is taking the report, you say "There was this deer that ran in front of us..."

How many cows could redneck tip if a redneck could tip cows?  He'd tip all the cows that a redneck could tip if a redneck could tip cows.
