View Full Version : What do you drive?

07-13-2005, 09:32 AM
There seems to be a big lack of non computer/coding related topics here, so thought i'd break the mould a bit (only a bit, don't worry ;)).

Basically (if you want) just list your mode/s of transportation (car/truck [+make & model], motorbike/pushbike [+make & model], feet [+ shoe type :p]). I dunno. Up to you really.

My rides:
- Nissan Skyline GTS-4 (R32)
- 1990
- 217hp, single turbo, 4WD

- Um... Pyscho (sp?) something?
- 18 speed with front suspension

- My shoes (no picture sorry)

I can't be the only one who drives/bikes/walks can i? :confused: :eek:

07-16-2005, 02:17 PM
I don't drive, and my bike's knackered. :( I walk a few miles every day though to get a bit of fresh air, but as I'm suffering from hayfever at the moment, I don't do that either.

So, umm, yep. You seem to be the only one so far. :p


07-17-2005, 02:13 AM
Eek. I probably drive more than i walk or ride. When the Winter ends it could go the other way around. Just too cold to ride bikes at the moment. Temperature is ~5C most days i think.

I've got an Aura Integra '97 - before they tried to make it look like a muscle car which it is, in a light weight sort of way. No pics handy. Car is a blast to drive and still, after lo these years, has a very nice suspension for high (or any) speed maneuvering. Moon roof and a nice stereo standard.

No pics right now. :( Sorry. But yes, it is the one with the squareish spoiler. It's pearl white. It has all wheel stearing, electronic controlled suspension, controllable exhaust note by a button on the steering wheel, and a spoiler and air dam that moves according to the speed you're going to increase aerodynamics. It's a pretty high tech car, and a lot of fun. :)

MY sister has a cool car and i want to post a picture, how to put in picture?

Its the new fairlain ford, design, 320 hp, nice nice.. manuel.. but it is her in picture washing, hope not too bad....

Hurry up and post the picture thing so i can know how to post a pic
HOW DO YOU POST A PICTURE!!!!! i tried uploading, it says it is too large, but it is 69kb and the limit is 40 or something, but it is 10X smallere than the one on top!!!!!

07-27-2005, 02:19 AM
Best way to post a picture is to upload it to a server you have access to. Not freewebs, I just found that out the hard way. Once you have that, just surround the url to the image with:

url to image goes here

Tags. Still, it is a good idea to keep the size (both the dimensions and the byte size) reasonable. That one pic up there is just too huge.

Really cool car my sister has.. edited licence plate, if too bad dont ban i will remove her or try... CLICK ON IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW

07-29-2005, 12:47 AM
Cr3ation Why do you have a thing for jscheur posted on your beta site????

Your freaking me, are you and jscheur the same? i see his thing with the pointy, and ilove your wanks... :eek:

07-29-2005, 04:50 AM
I didn't see any 'thing' on cr3's sight for me, where is it? I did sign up for his free advertising offer awhile back but, was never able to find the link. Ah, I just found b3ta, still no 'thing' for me though. Cr3's in the UK, I'm in the USA. That's why you never see us both in the same place at the same time. :D

07-29-2005, 08:03 AM
Haha, I have a lot of things on the b3ta domain of my site - it's because I let others upload to it for free, like a small hosting service. Only about 4 pictures there are actually mine.

This thread is just plain scary now.


Are we all the same people? The men in white coats told me this problem had stopped :(

Aaah! (conjures a Ferrari) :D Yay! (does a Cheshire cat impression)

08-09-2005, 09:55 AM
I counter your Ferrari with a wheel clamp, causing you +1 confusion and +10 anger.

08-09-2005, 08:48 PM

He counters wheel clamp with flying bycycle. (thankz e.t.)
which leaves you with +100 aw - 100 confidence

08-10-2005, 09:05 AM
I counter your wheel clamp with a crowbar, leaving you with -1 wheel clamps and a bucket of squid.

"Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye.
I commenced to shakin' and I said 'ooh-eee'
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

"It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
(one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me. (one eye?)"
- Sheb Wooley

08-10-2005, 09:10 AM
I locate the bucket of squid and cast +2 metamorphosis on it, creating +50 damage monstersquid. I reclamp your car and hold your family hostage using the monstersquid, causing you -50 damage, +10 anger.

08-10-2005, 09:13 AM
You cannot reclamp my car, you have -1 wheel clamps.
I cast Level 3 Hypnosis on the monster squid and make it believe that it is a sheep, causing you +75 confusion and +20 slight annoyance and rescuing my family for +200 health.

"Well he came down to earth and lit in a tree
I said Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

It was a one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me. (one horn?)"
- Sheb Wooley

08-10-2005, 09:15 AM
I discard my hypnotised monster squid and use my remaining +5 metamorphosis on the bucket it came in, transforming it into a large prison with plenty of parking spaces, an attached McDonalds and hot/cold running water. I then cast +1 transportation and move you into said prison, and cast +20 magic lock, withholding you from casting magic related moves for 2 turns.

08-10-2005, 09:19 AM
I use +1 Loud Scream, deafening all the MacDonalds staff ( :eek: ) and breaking open the cage, whereupon I whistle up a large dog and tell him you're a rabbit in disguise.

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flying purple
people eater. Pidgeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin'
purple people eater (we wear short shorts)
Flyin' purple people eater
sure looks strange to me.
- Sheb Wooley

08-10-2005, 09:24 AM
I cast +1 leetspeak over myself to cause +10 confusion for all other players

I P\/\/|\| _|00R |>06 |_|5I|\|6 |\/|'/ |=I|\|/-\|_ -S3\/3|\| /-\|\|I/\/\/-\L, </-\|_|5I|\|6 _|00 +10 |-||_|/\/\I|_I/-\TI0|\|

That took ages to type out.

08-10-2005, 09:28 AM
I uses +10 DeLeet bookmarklet, restoring +50 sanity.

javascript:(function(){ var T=( "| 1 m /\\/\\ m |\\/| w \\/\\/ w |/\\| h |-| h |~| u |_| m |v| n |\\| n /\\/ d |) f |= h }{ i ][ j _| j _] k |< k |{ l |_ p |> p [* r |2 v \\/ x >< y `/ a @ a 4 b 8 e 3 g 6 g 9 o 0 s 5 s $ t + t 7" ).split(" "),i,x,t; function R(t){t=t.toLowerCase();for(i=0;i<T.length;i+=2)while(t.indexOf(T[i+1])!=-1)t=t.replace(T[i+1],T[i]);return t} function F(n,i){t=n.tagName;if(i=n.data)n.data=R(i);if(t!="SCRIPT"&&t!="STYLE")for(i=0;x=n.childNodes[i];++i)F(x)} F(document) })()

"And then he swung from the tree and lit on the
ground. He started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy little ditty with a swingin' tune
(sing aboop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom)

Well, bless my soul, rock and roll
flyin' purple people eater.
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple peopleeater.
Flyin' little people eater
Sure looks strange to me. (purple people?)"
- Sheb Wooley

08-10-2005, 09:31 AM
I use +10 hippy, light a fire and start smoking herbs and start singing nonsense with Twey.


08-10-2005, 09:33 AM
Nonsense? That's art, is the Purple People Eater.

"And then he went on his way, and then what do
you know. I saw him last night on a TV show.
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in
his head (clarinet solo) ( Tequila)"
