WTF? I've done some crazy stuff dealing with roads and cars but I would never dream of doing anything similar to that. No control, with CARS ALL AROUND YOU???
For example, the most dangerous thing I've done (and I've done plenty) was when me and my best friend built a downhill racer out of stolen steel, stolen shopping cart wheels, stolen bolts and put it all together. (It all looked like scrap so whatever) Once one of the bolt heads snapped off because the entire case of bolts we grabbed was probably defective, we decided weld it all together just in case.
Now, we went out at 1:00 AM or later and rode this thing down STEEEEP hills, followed by our transport vehicle. Sure it was dangerous as $#*% but at least
A. when "riding it" we can steer the damn thing, and stop it with our shoes very effectively.
B. we were followed by our transport car with headlights so no crazy driver would hit us (unless they also hit the transport car in which case we'd probably be dead even if we weren’t riding on that crazy thing.)
We hit speeds of 45 mph... Now, when you are on SHOPPING CART WHEELS with NO safety protection and your body is only 5 inches from the speeding pavement that will grind your skin off in a hot second. That is a ridiculous speed to be moving at. It was fun though, no regrets doing it either.
The rear wheel started to break off because of all of the damn rocks that kept hitting the wheels and the weight of our body's on that weak anodized aluminum started to bend them backwards it soon became unrideable. We then proceeded to DRAG IT behind my friend's car...... upside down on these empty country roads. It bounced around and made all kinds of racket & sparks.
After that we took it back to the place where to took the scrap steel and it’s been sitting there for almost 2 years now. I think I’m going to go back and steal it again it one day, fix up the rear wheels and surprise my friend
Don't believe my story? Take a look
at this evil, mass of steel that could have killed me
We dubbed it the Brutal-Mobile, in light of our old "film studio," brutal productions (which is hosted on my OLD website with much more bandwidth than bitcore.org)
