It's got a cop motor, a four hundred and forty cubic inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters, so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say? Is it the new Bluesmobile or what?

Drawbridge operator Andre Locke, who watched the wild scene unfold, recalled that "I looked, I said, 'no, he ain't.'"

I love it when a late 70s movie comes to life.  Well done, sir, I'd be proud to hold your beer anytime

A) where is that reporter from?  Not in a bad way, but where is his accent from?
B) where is that reporter from?  Not in a bad way, but kids have been doing whippits forever.
C) where is that reporter from?  Not in a bad way, but he's really never seen good video editing?
D) where is that reporter from?  Not in a bad way, but he was never trained to find video of the actual incident or a photo of the suspect?

Sources say authorities initially became suspicious when they paused mid-flight for a commercial break...

"Whippets...Apparently youngsters nowadays can sniff the gas and get high."

Uh, yeah, my friends were doing whippets back in the 80s, and I am pretty sure older kids were doing before then.

Awesome. Who hasn't been stuck at a drawbridge and thought about jumping it. I know I have.

Your friends were doing whippets back in the '80s?  I hope you mean racing them.

One of the comments about this story on FoxNews  said the driver was  "smelling whippets".  Really, someone actually wrote that and it wasn't me.

I've heard they call it "hippy crack".

But when they did it it was safe and innocent!

Kids in the 70's: unprotected rampant sex, smoking regular cigs and weed in school, hitchhiking, etc. "Whatever, man!"

Those same people 45 years later: "How dare my grandkids have (protected) sex, vape away from other people, and always with their phones that mean I can contact them at any time and use to call for rides!"

I certainly DNRTFA, did it mention if it was a clean getaway?

I'm dreaming for video of the crash where the bottom of the bridge meets flat road

Blew all four tires and crashed into opposite gate. And was arrested.
So no, not very clean.

You should know that the vast majority of the cars on the road today are extremely nose heavy. So unless you're in a performance vehicle with at least a somewhat balanced weight distribution, you probably shouldn't even think about it.

Yep.  I still remember the shiat we got up to - I get in trouble sometimes with parents when they talk about this horrible shiat little Bobby pulled, and I go, "Meh.  Remember the time you ended up torching half a kitchen because impromptu fire-breathing practice seemed like a good idea?" or other similar relevant anecdotes.  Invariably I get "Well that was different!"  Yeah, different because your dumb ass did it, not someone else.

Wow, what weird drugs will the kids find next???

Oh, wait, here's a picture of a flyer for a public nitrous oxide party from 1845:

It's also been in use in medicine since around the same time. Like, have these idiots never been to the dentist? Wait, don't answer that.
