I have to give a persuasive speech tomorrow and the topic I chose to do it on is how SUVs are pointless for the majority of people who own them and how dangerous they are.

I don't think I'll give it. I don't like pissing people off, and my teacher is waaaayyyyy fat so I'm sure she doesn't drive something tiny like a Miata. So...****.

It was very fun to say the least, me versus 35 people. I WON. Literally a flawless victory. So I was awarded an A and every one else got a B-.

Point of the story, Do Work.

I heart my Expedition and a turbo Miata is just as "pointless".

That's why I don't want to give this speech. I think everything in life is pretty ******* pointless and trying to persuade anyone to follow your opinion is ******* retarded.

Do a speech about how everyone under 21 is a ******* retard and that parents are getting pathetic, thus resulting in a new generation of helpless emo kids. Go on about how it's runing music and that this influance has even caused MTV to go from a channel that used to be good to a network that exploits and promotes teen pregnancy...and even the namesake "MTV" is just an oxymoron. Explain how the internet is simply a tool for those who were around before it but it's a lifestyle for those who don't remember what it was like to have a life outside their parents house. Go on about how Chine should be turned into a glass parking lot because they are truely the root of all evil and that lazy ***** are allowing to get away with it. Go on about how all fatasses are their own demise and that no overwight **** should ever be issued a handicap parking pass or a Rascal to haul their giant tubs a ******* lard around on. Explain how said fatasses are more of a burden on the healthcare system then the dwindling number of smokers, yet tobacco products are taxed unfairly (as we are a minority group who has no say in such affairs). Don't forget to throw in a few points about how alcohol has done more to tear apart lives while smoking marijuana has brought people together. How many people have died from marijuana poisoning? How man people are arrested for being disorderly because they're toking on a blunt in public? And YES, 90% of those ******** out there who drive SUVs (or any other trendy bullshit acronym...SUT, Crossover, AUV, mini-ute) are driving useless piles of ****. Most are just oversized and overly dangerous vehicles that serve no other purpose other than to impress your neaighbor or boss in a completely homo-erotic way. It's no long about one-upping your neighbor wiht a nice, green and well landscaped lawn...it's about who has the largest pile of **** in their driveway..and who's will depreciate the fastest. Oh, and don't forget about the illegal beaners that are helping to runin this country. Recommend that if we re-source jobs to Mexico, a lot of out economic problems will be helped. Not only will it make our country seem less desirable (keeping wetbacks out of here), it would also help the price of goods stay low s shipping costs will be reduced.

I think you should give it, while I don't think I fall into that category there are many many suv owners that simply don't use their suv/trucks for their intended purpose. That's what your speech should be about, why buy an suv if your a single person living in a 1 bedroom apt?

that is what my speech is about, lev. Most people have no need for an SUV. My old Honda Fit could haul just as much ****, while doubling MPG and not killing people or rolling over.



I even have a short 58 second video of an Explorer t-boning a Focus at 30mph from youtube I'll show. Pretty scary ****. Scary because I drive a death trap like that poor Tesla. I'm definitely getting a rollbar soon as hell..

Not doing the speech today though. I'll wait.

Fuckgoddammit

OK, so I was walking out of Barnes & Noble last night and this book caught my attention. I picked it up and thumbed around...it looked entertaining. But now I cannot remember the name for **** nor what section it was in. The name was something like/on the lines of "There is no escaping death and eventaully we're all going to die".....but I know tha'ts not it... the title was kinda long and funny in explaining the demise of the human race. Clearly satire and not serious subject as TOC shown deathe from robots, nanotechnology, ourselvs, space issues etc...

But dammit I cannit remember the name....meaning I'm going to have to haul my *** back up there and see if I can remember it. I hate my terrible memory.

Rollbars don't do **** for side, rear or end collision....hence the name "roll-bar".

yeah but rolling over can happen after getting hit. I think it's a good safety measure. Maybe I'll focus on that and race seats/harnesses before more turbo parts..
