  1. Sorry about your car. At least you're still in one piece.

    I'll spare you the lecture on speeding, becaue I'm not afraid to admit I do stupid things as well. having a powerful car makes it so much more tempting.

    And before you go out there and try it again, I'm thinking you should be able to hit 160 considering bone stock 03/04 Cobras can do it. But your 5-speed may be the weak link.
  2. QFMFT. very good point. probably the most intelligent post in this thread.

    I cant imagine the crap you'd be in though if cops were to have seen it. I dont know about Texas, but if you pulled that stunt and lost it on a Cali freeway/highway or anywhere else here with people on the roads, you'd be in jail for sure.

    Regardless, I'm glad to hear you're okay and the car isnt completely destroyed. I do respect that you had the balls to admit to your wrong-doing as well. Best of luck on getting her on the road again. You get your second chance. A lot of people don't get that. Take note of it.
  3. Are you aware that Noob is a slang term for a newcomer to online gaming or an Internet activity. It can also be used for any other activity in whose context a somewhat clueless newcomer could exist. It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment.
    Contents Before it entered popular discourse by way of the Internet, the term "newbie" had a limited usage among U.S. troops in the Vietnam War as a slang term for a new man in a unit. "Newbie" can be used as a term to identify newcomers to a game, place, or organization. The variant spellings of "newbie" are also used, especially in online games, as a catch-all insult regardless of the recipient's actual skill or experience. Someone who acts like a "newbie," but isn't one would be referred to as one of the variant spellings. The variant "noob" has become common in spoken English by juveniles. Alternate spellings include "newb", "n00b", "noob", "nooblet", "nub", and the recently popular "nublet." These alternate spellings of the term, other than "newb," inherit the definition of "newbie" but are generally used in a derogatory manner to indicate uselessness because of the ignorance associated with being a newcomer.

    In online games, mainly MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft or Lineage 2, a greater distinction may be made between a "newb" and a "noob." The common consensus is that a "newb" is someone who through their very nature of being a new player is inexperienced and naive to particular gaming mechanics or etiquette, whereas a "noob" is a player that is generally considered to be experienced, yet often makes mistakes or solecisms that would more likely be attributed to a "newb." The term "noob" can also be applied to someone who is experienced, but blatantly disregards rules and etiquette. There are a multitude of words that have emerged from the original "Newbie", each with their own meaning and origins. There are such terms like "nubcakes" or "nubotron" which emerged from generally gamers expressing their anger of success with their fellow players. The general rule is to use the nub- or noob- stems in order to create specific insults or expletives, as in "nooblet," or "nubcracker." The Korean term chobo (초보) has roughly the same connotations as "newbie", and has been popularized in the English speaking world via the presence of large numbers of South Koreans in some online gaming communities. The antonym of chobo is gosu (고수).Newbie and the alternate spellings are often used for one of two different meanings. Newbie is usually used to refer to a new person who has recently joined the group of bored, and is a rank default on InvisionFree forums. Several alternate spellings and occasionally the original word, are used to refer to a member who is generally unwanted or disliked in the community, and is often used as part of Trolling or Flaming.In IRC, newbies may be either discouraged or encouraged, depending on the particular channel. There are channels on any of the major networks dedicated to catering to newbie questions and getting into the IRC community. However, beyond the scope of these introductory rooms there are many channels where common newbie mistakes are not tolerated. This may include repeating the same sentence, begging for pirated software, immature insult slinging, attacking an operator, usage of colour, and the use of channel bot search and file list commands (such as !find or @search). Most channels have rules that are posted as a link in the topic or sent to the user as an on-join message. Breaking the rules or established policy can result in an instant kickban. The term "non-useful body", "nuclear unready body", or N.U.B. was coined in the submariner world. A brand new sailor reporting aboard a submarine had to earn his "dolphins" (submarine-qualification: learning everything about a submarine in order to quickly and decisively assist in damage control).[2] Until the sailor became so qualified, he could not do his assigned function aboard the submarine. During this time, he was declared a non-useful-body, and was generally harassed until he completed it. The term has since migrated to the surface fleet, and is used to negatively refer to new sailors, who are not as experienced and useful as their shipmates. Doctor Cox in the TV show Scrubs continuously refers to his protégé John Dorian (J.D.) as "Newbie" as a way of breaking his spirits and constantly reminding him who's in charge. (This has been going on since the series began in 2001.) In Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, the character "Noob" Saibot's weapon is the "Troll Hammer", a joke on the fact that many people who troll message boards are noobs. In The Sims video game, the tutorial family with which the player learns how to play the game are named Bob and Betty Newbie.
    * In the webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del, The strips "Glossary:Newb/Noob" and "Real Life" describe the behaviors of "newbs" and "noobs".
    * In the internet TV series, Pure Pwnage, the main character Jeremy says the catchphrase, "I pwn noobs", meaning he dominates lower ranking players.In the online game Kingdom of Loathing, one enemy that the player may face in the Valley of Rof L'm Fao is a "Lamz0r N00b." Their attacks include "omgwtf"ing the player and asking "how u mine 4 fish?," [1] a reference to noobspeak. In the same game, the area where new players are taught the basics of gameplay is called Mt. Noob.In the game Baldur's Gate, there is an NPC called Noober (obviously from noob), who talks to the party for a while before running out of things to say. His purpose in the game is to annoy the player (he also gives experience if the player waits long enough). There is also a character in the sequel, Baldur's Gate 2, named Neeber (variation of newb), who is commonly thought of as the brother of Noober. Both characters can be killed by the player without fear of provoking the town guards or citizens. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl an NPC in Oreburgh City encourages the player to advance in the game to avoid being like a "total noob". In the webseries Red vs. Blue is a group of background characters called the Grunts who parody stereotypical Halo gamers, and "noob" is one of the terms commonly used by the group.The game definition of noob is usually someone, often in online games who acts in offensive ways to other users or people that surround them and refuse to go away, or stay by any other methods for the sole purpose of annoying others. The word noob can also mean in an online game someone who did something stupid, or asked an obvious question. For example, if someone asks a question answered in the FAQ or is common knowledge, others will call that person a noob.Newb is also considered a relatively new person to a game that is inexperienced and doesn't know what they are doing. This term is often addressed as newb(Newbie). However, in recent times this term is infrequently used and has been widely accepted as being replaced by noob.Nub is another spelling of noob. Sometimes, nubs are used to describe people who are worse then noobs. The general explanation is that a "nub" is so bad, that it is a waste of time to type two o's for this person. Therefore, the double o is replaced by u.
  4. Seriously guy, I hope you cut and pasted that in. Otherwise, you might look at getting another hobby :shrug:
  5. sorry to hear about your car....atleast you no what your car is capable of now haha

    glad to haer you are in one piece aswell!!
  6. thats interesting and all, but, whats your point?

    some more random knowledge: it is illegal to stare at the mayor of paris.
  7. Wow.... where do I begin...

    Well you went mighty fast, you were curious... Okay I can see that... Now You've done it, I know you wont' again. you mentioned you've never done that before, this was your one time and you were granted the ability to carry on your life. You know you don't need a lecture, I'm sure you gave yourself a better one then any one of us could have. :)

    Now as far as you are concerned, I'm genuinely and sincerly glad you are okay after this.
  8. my .02

    What saleen said is completely ignorant. He's a *** retard because he did something extremely stupid?? No. Im assuming he has more experience than you with cars. Now what he did, yes that was extremely retarded. That doesn't make him a **** retard though. Everyone makes mistakes.
  9. I wonder how fast you have gone or had the guts to go, i would say 101mph. Way to take risks buddy :nice:
  10. In most cases doing retarded things dont actually make you a retard, except for driving 160 mph on the street. At the point you reach 160 your DNA changes and you do in fact turn into a retard. That explains why he lost control of his car because he wasnt physically or mentally able to drive a car anymore.
  11. If I had your setup, I'd air it out too. Not on a curve though :nonono:

    But I'm glad you didn't get hurt and I can assure you that you won't forget that experience. I totaled a camaro in a similar fashion when I was 16 and learned my lesson quick. I had minor injuries but gave some serious thanks to the man upstairs that I wasn't hurt bad.

  12. :rolleyes:

    Not the most intelligent thing said in this thread thus far.

    If going that fast is all about guts, then I'll take smart over guts any day. :shrug:
  13. I think I pointed that out in my first reply
  14. So where is hot331? Did you say you were gonna post pics? Also update us on you, did you go to the DR? Hope you are ok and are not too ashamed to come back to the post.

  15. Not that I agree with the name calling, but I do get your point and what you're trying to say. Better off just calling out the actions and not calling out the names....just safer around here that way.

    I'm a little suprised at a post glorifying how fast you're willing to go though.

    How appropriate does that seem for a board that is against (and rightly so) street racing and reckless street driving.....but I bet that post never gets edited out. :shrug:
  16. Ive thought about this too.
  17. Anyways, I'll leave it alone. I'm not trying to make the OP feel worse by any means. And I do hope he returns to provide updates.

    This place has just gotten weird since I've frequented last.
  18. The point of this post was for others to be aware of the dangers of becoming too confident on the road and to think before you act...so why is there arguing over a lesson that has already been learned...
  19. Yeah I never really understood that how someone who comes on saying they street raced or something can get banned/thread locked but yet this thread didn't get locked after the first post? I mean I realize OP has alot of history on this board but that doesn't really change things. Can someone explain what can get banned/locked due to what they say about their innapropriate driving?
