ok so today is the first day i drove my car since like last tuesday or wednesday, so it's been about a week, i really missed it, so i go out with my dad we're goin, he yells at me to not go on the highway, so i'm like that's cool, i go to this little country twisty road that i love to drive in my bimmer, well we're going, on a straight, i see this shadow go across the road, now see people, this is the backwoods of indiana we're going through, so it could be anything, looked like some kind of animal, maybe dog, deer, fox, wolf, coyote (did i spell that right), anyway i'm like wtf was that, my dad is like i don't know i let off the gas and look toward the direction it was going, i slowed to about 40, i was doing 50, then out of the corner of my eye i see a brown thing to the right, the first shadow had gone right to left, so i had turned my head to the left a little to see what it was, well then i saw the thing out of the corner of my eye coming into the road, i slam clutch and brake down, we got about 2 feet away from the deer as it was running across, and another one that was behind it turned and went back, if that one had kept going i prolly would have ran into it, so then i put it in second and drive off, needless to say a little shaken, the first thing that went through my head, after hitting the brakes, was OH NOEZ MY CAR IS GOING TO BE RUINED!!!!!!!!, thankfully i slowed down in enough time to not hit the deer, thank you god, OH YEAH AND MY LIGHTS WERE ON, lol, making fun of myself, yeah i love you guys too, just a word of advice, if you see a shadow go across the road, SLOW DOWN!!!!!
like i said on aim, i just leave my slyvania lows on and they work just fine, plus i get annoyed when i have to keep turning them on and off as cars come at me, and i didn't know that highbeams could turn to look at something running on the side of the road, good one torque but the high's wouldn't have stopped the deer from coming into the road

hmm..deers really fuck up your car, not mentioning the fact that it could go threw your windshield right into you. Imagine a hoof in your face....
Recommended speed for hitting deer is 120 mph or greater.
deer meat is mad good...anyone ever have deer jerky or deer brisket? hooray for Venison!!!!
