    I drive a lot between Dublin and Galway and I generally travel around the 120kph speed limit. A fair few cars overtake me which is to be expected but what is striking though is that the vast majority of those are primarily Audis aided and abetted by Mercs and BMWs. Now, nearly every car can exceed the speed limit if the driver wishes but is there something in the psyche of the driver of a "performance car" that he must exceed the speed limit and overtake the little people in the non-Audis etc motors ?
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    I've found that too, but the 120K limit is always treated as a general guideline instead of law in my experience.

    For what it's worth, I think the speed limits on the motorways are total nonsense and should be raised. I'm a driver that doesn't break the speed limit, I'll sit on 80 in an 80 zone where others will zoom on at 100, and I like to think of myself as a careful enough kind of driver, but the motorways really do annoy me. There's no reason why they shouldn't be 140 in my opinion, at least in the more open stretches of road.

    Also, minimum speed limits should be brought in. If you can fail your driving test for going too slow, why then is it perfectly okay for someone to drive 50 km/h in a 100 km/h area?

    I know there are a bunch of vegetarians on here, I thought this was interesting linking going veggie to depression. I read a bunch of the articles, and they all say that they ALSO found that depressed people might be more likely to go vegetarian in general, so they are already depressed.

    Edit: Could it be people get depressed over not being able to have bacon? I think that's the only meat I couldn't give up.

    Last night, in the middle of nowhere in Colorado I hit a 500lb elk with my rental car. The elk's dead and the car is totaled, but thanks to the help of some kind passers-by I'm fine, and the rental company are sending me a replacement car later today.

    Are you going to tell your insurance company?

    The rental insurance covers it, not my personal insurance

    I'm almost annoyed at that reply. The other thread should really have taken off and become a foot.ie classic.

    Yep, the entire engine block was mangled. The windshield cracked but didn't shatter, apart from a section in front of the passenger seat.
    500lbs is about 35 stone, or 237kg in new money.
    Apart from the glass, and the airbag deploying, if you were looking in the car itself you wouldn't know it had been in an accident.

    Incidentally, I've leg pressed 220 kilos in the gym, could probably do 240, or as I'm going to call it in future, one elk

    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    I hope Trevor Deely's family get closer in the very immediate future.

    it was dark, just after 8pm, I was on a local road so very little in the way of street light, and a truck coming the opposite direction had dazzled me a little with its headlights. Genuinely didn't see it until it was right in front of the car

    Where do you consider to be the middle of nowhere in CO? Are you going to Boulder? I went to CU. Boulder is great.

    This happens with Deer a lot obviously, but an Elk crash can definitely kill you. One time in Yellowstone it started to snow just as we set up camp and you couldn't really see anything...a big moose was running from something and charged right through our camp site...It would have sucked to get run over by it. Also saw a grizzly in the river eating a fish...Grizzly sighting are pretty rare.

    It's sad that the Elk died, a lot of times they just jump up and are fine. Deer too. Especially in Stag season. They just look at you and mosey back into the woods.
