    I hope this qualifies, as it's referring to me.

    on the topic of chuck, I still find it strange that someone who seems like such a patriotic american has an anime profile pic.

    He's made several references to anime in the past, so I guess it's just something he likes.
    Of course, that means all who don't like it are idiots and killing Japanese culture or something like that.

    I'm not really into anime. The only two I've ever cared enough about to watch were Initial D and Wangan Midnight.

    I chose this avatar specifically because of what the NSX is doing: taking an inside corner (remember Japan is a left-driving country) so tightly that his fender is scraping the guardrail. In other words, something that can't be done anywhere nonmotorized road users might have a 1-10,000 chance of being. I used it because, would you believe no one I could find with a Goolag image search had a decent avatar-sized GIF of Takumi's gutter hook?

    It's also something that can't be done anywhere you have a chance of being. Let me remind you that Initial D is a fictional series about illegal street racing. Why would you even want to scrape the front fender of your expensive supercar anyway?
    This is also why I've never really liked supercars: Their intent is to go extremely fast, but you have to take care of it because of how expensive it is. And once you've purchased it, you have to spend even more on maintenance. It's got to be exhausting. And again, once you've finally acquired this expensive machine, now you have to worry about going too hard into a corner and ruining it.
    That's why I've always liked slightly slower, but cheaper and more fun cars.
    This sentence implies that you think Google is purposefully censoring decent avatar-sized GIFs of Takumi's gutter hook.

    Today, this is a joke.

    To show how precisely you can use the very edge of the road without inflicting any actual mechanical damage?

    In either case, it's about the ability non-drivers remove: the ability to drive without worry - including at much lower speeds, maybe even around the speed limit - instead of constantly obsessing over whether you're just a little too close to the edge of the road, and designing your entire driving style around one guy who probably isn't even there.

    Also, I don't drive an expensive supercar. I drive a rattlecan-painted Ford Escort wagon with more rust than good metal. I seriously doubt a couple scrapes on the fender could make it look worse than it already does.

    No, I'm just genuinely surprised that I couldn't find any. It's one of the most iconic scenes in the whole series, you'd think there would be one somewhere.

    I guess you forgot once more that you aren't the only driver on the road and the world doesn't revolve around you getting what you want.
    You also seem to have forgotten that unless an idiot is riding his bike in the breakdown lane (an exception to the rule), cyclists have their own lane that doesn't interfere with yours. Unless, of course, you're such a piss-poor driver that you can't even drive in the center of your lane properly.
    I wasn't talking about you when I said I didn't like supercars, and the fact that you drive a rusty Ford Escort that doesn't sound at all roadworthy doesn't have anything to do with it. I said I find cheaper, slower cars more fun, did you not see that?

    In the city, they do. Who the frick goes out for a drive just to drive, in the middle of the city? Also:

    "that you can't even drive in the center of your lane properly."

    Oh, so just staying in the lane isn't enough, you have to stay in the exact center of the lane or you're selfish and dangerous!

    I'm sorry, in what parallel universe does this sound like a reasonable or even realistic request? As far as I'm concerned this is just more proof that cyclists are the ones who really think the world "revolves around them getting what they want".

    You asked this:

    That's what I was responding to. The fact is, maybe I don't actually want to scrape the guardrail - but a younger me, who had only ever seen like 2 non-drivers on the road firsthand, if they were out on some twisty road somewhere and saw grass covering a guardrail, would definitely see if they could get close enough to brush the grass without scraping said guardrail!

    Since you're all making memes of me, I made one for you. It applies to a great many members of this forum and if you take away SuperAusten's avatar it sums up pretty well how I feel about car culture in 2020 in general.

    Who goes for a bike ride just to go for a bike ride in the middle of a city? Cyclists aren't cycling on back and country roads just to piss you off personally. They're doing it for the same reason you do: To experience pleasant views while traveling a nice road. They just choose to do it with a mode of transportation they prefer, and you don't have any more right to that experience than they do.

    Personally, I bike to commute and country cycling isn't my thing, but I have nothing against the people who do and accept that sometimes other people are going to prevent me from doing what I want to do, and that's fair.
    I'm asking that you consider that other people (that includes other drivers) use public roads too. You can complain all you want about your right to smoke in the middle of the sidewalk, but everyone's going to hate you for doing it.

    I was hesitating to ask this because I knew you'd mock me for not being a "real car enthusiast," but you already do that constantly so I have nothing to lose: Why would you not want to drive in the center of your lane anyway? Is there an advantage in butting your tires right up to the line?
    I mean "you" like "a person." As in, an alternative way to phrase it would be "Why would one even want to scrape the front fender of their expensive supercar anyway?"
