Sad story from LaJolla
It has been said:
>I was driving quite briskly. Just as
>I passed the Comedy Club on Pearl, I hit a big dip at just under 70mph.
Upon seeing the >dip, I had scrubbed off as much speed as possible without
>control. Next thing I knew, all four tires were in the air, and I was
soaring through >the intersection about one foot off the ground. Before I
could get "Look what you've >done now stupid," out of my mouth, the front
tires touched down with a thud. The rest of >the car followed, and I swore
I would never drive faster than the double nickle if the >Audi gods would
spare my ride just this one last time. I pulled over, grabbed my
>flashlight, and walked around the car, prepared for the worst. I couldn't
believe >it...nothing. The front spoiler was intact without a scratch...I
could see where the >tires touched down, as a nice gray spot from where
they folded over the rim was

Let's try this another way:
I was driving way too fast. Just as I passed the comedy club on Pearl, I
hit a person
croosing the street. When I first saw them, I tried to slow down, but it
was too late.
Next thing I knew, the person was flying across the intersection like a
ragdoll about 5
feet off the ground. Before I could get "Look what you've >done now
stupid," out of my
mouth, the front tires touched down with a thud. The rest of >the car
followed, and I
swore I would never drive faster than the double nickle if that person
lived or if I ever
got out of jail. Unfortunately, the person was in a great deal of pain for
a little while
before they bled to death in the street. I looked toward the heavens and
cried, what have
I done? I will never forgive myself; Never mind the holidays, that
family's lives will
never be the same.
70 through an intersection?
HAVE A "SAFE" AND HAPPY HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who else? -Royal
