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.
Can't find a satirical title yet. My best guess so far:

Do you know what torque and its relation to center of gravities has to do with rolling over?

You have to stop watching so many movies.

Nah...neither. I'll know it when I hear it. It dealt with multiple ways the human race will come to an end....eventually. Thanks for taking the time to look though. Oh and it's a paperback book with a yellow/orange cover and the font looks like something from a Monty Python movie cover...








Don't ask why I can remember what it looked like over what the ******* title was FML. Oh wait...I remember that because it's what caught my attention.

Yeah Caboose, it doesn't happen all the easily. Coming from someone who has indeed rolled a Miata "on the street". A little thing called "center of gravity".

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.
No it cannot, but that isn't the issue here.

I slept in it once, completely flat. I'm 6'0. Yes. A Fit > SUV's.

Most people who load their SUV's anyway are going over the safe weight capacity of the vehicle.....

you can put a roofrack on a Fit and still put 5 people (and 1 or 2 in the hatch...). Don't argue with me about this. I will point out the fact time and time again that SUVs are garbage and stupid compared to hatchbacks, wagons, and minivans.

And that's safe and not over the weight limit?

I'm not arguing with you, in fact I agree with you that most suv, truck owners have no use for their truck. I just want to make sure you understand that there are some people that use every bit of their vehicle. My Expedition is not daily driven, the 3rd row gets used quite frequently, and I've used it to haul ALOT of **** from home depot/lowes.


And when I do track my Miata, I can tow it there. Try that with your Fit.

it is, so what's your argument here? Fit > SUV. Under or over the weight limit.

my parents own an SUV. They use it for something that a car can't do, maybe once or twice a year.

So...yeah. SUV's are dumb.

Wagon>Fit

examples
BMW 540 wagon
WRX wagon
E55 AMG wagon
Forester turbo wagon
Mazda6 wagon
Mazda Protege 5 wagon
and if you live in another country..the wagons are even more badass.


Oh only if Ford and GM would have had a few brain cells left and brought us the ute vehicles sold in Australia.
