    Yeah I think the thread was intended (or at least morphed) to have a humorous timbre. I doubt this is supposed to be considered "good science" so getting stopped up by proper theory... eh do what you want.

    I think it's rather obvious that liking driving would be up to environment though.

    Abso-freakin'-lutely. I was so goddamned sickened by the amount of car hype we had in our school in our 17's, I became anti-car. People saw cars as a kind of a luxury items at that time and age, something which I thought was just silly. I thought every family could afford to have cars if they so wished. I thought that "freedom" was more dependent on living on your own anyway, and "fun" on being able to buy alcohol.

    I avoid having to make longer trips than 15 minutes, no matter what the vehicle.. it has to be something freakishly interesting to get my butt moving from my comfy chair for a ride longer than that. (And I do exercise and run regularly.) Sure as hell no-one won't find me doing 1hr trips to the supermarket out of town to save 3 cents in beer expenses. When I go somewhere other than work (about 6 times a week), I try to combine many purposes to the single trip. (I go for grocery shopping just around the block to the nearest grocery store, so that doesn't count).

    I try use bicycle whenever I can to make trips interesting.. actually, I take a bicycle for exercise and some fun rides in the summer. I like to use the public transport and take a book with me or something.

    I've been such an anti-car fanatic I've refused to get a driver's licence yet. I think I'm becoming more moderate now .. people hyping less about cars is helping it, so I don't feel the need to be such a resistance warrior anymore.

    In case you wonder, my life's been easier without a car. Helsinki, although just with half million residents, is like New York in the regard that you do just well without a car (or so they say). Coming from a bar downtown, couldn't use my own car anyway.

    Now that the environmentalism is taking off, think I'll buy a car eventually.

    Oh, and people seeing getting a driver's licence as some kind of an "accomplishment" in my youth was just beyond my comprehension

    It took probably 6 or 7 years but now I view driving and cars as tools, not ends to themselves. Now that I know I am going to hate my daily commute it doesn't bother me anymore.

    Same here. Although, now that I post this..sigh..hopefully this trend will continue.

    Don't let superstition overun logic. Your posting won't effect your ability to avoid tickets unless you let it do so subconsiously.

    Oh, no superstition here. Just a little smile in the back of my mind that it would be ironic if I suddenly got a ticket in the next day or two. :-) My behaviors aren't gonna change at all though.

    radar detector- a girl's best friend (other than wax )

    I'm the crazy driver your mother warned you about I weave in and out of traffic, speed, yell at other drivers and take off when the light turns green like it's the Indy 500- the only accident I've ever been in was when someone else ran a red light and smashed my car as I was legally turning left I'm observant- I know what's going on in traffic, so it's not like I'm driving dangerously per se- just driving rather bat out of hellishly. I love to drive and think that it's a lot of fun, kind of a challenge- me versus the other drivers!

    and yes- I slow down to about 20 mph in no passing zones if someone's tailing me... then I speed up to where they can't pass me once we hit a passing zone it's fun

    People like you are the ones that make me glad my car can out run most others even if it looks like something your grandfather would drive

    that or make me wish for a push bar like on the cop cars

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.
