form > function is an opinion. Pretty stupid.

but

function IS form. Always has been, always will be. Form can ONLY be function when function IS form.

Silly trendsters.

That site just screams, "I AM A TOOL!" The sad part is that this peacocking bullshit actually gives these people the attention they want.

would you consider a group of goths, who all look, act, and talk the same, artists?

They consider themselves as such, and believe they are "different" and "unique" and "artists" and "you wouldn't understand" but yet, they are all the same. Wouldn't they just be sheep of a different farm?

I'm all for Stance:Nation. Just like I'm all for for Tapout. It let's you see douchebags coming from a much further distance.

Every generation has idiots. I don't think yours has more than its fair share. But if it does, then you should do quite well because you'll look like a genius in comparison.

farther is measurable distance; You can see someone coming farther away.

further is figurative. If you continue to grammatically fail any further, i will give you an infraction.

I mostly fixed capitalization.

BUT, I failed to consider that this is a stance thread. Based upon that, how's this?

There are certain stance cars I don't mind looking at, but the other 98% just make me ask why? The other thing u don't get are "drift" cars, when I have my Miatas at work I always get idiots asking if I drift it or telling me I should. They usually ask if the diff is welded as well, to which I respond with yes I want to ruin a 500-700 dollar diff.

I get asked this everytime I meet another car enthusiast in Tampa. Most of the miata guys will ask about autocross or track but atleast 50% of them will also ask about drifting. I always just point to my car which is neither slammerd or dented and say "Does it look like I drift?"

I wish we had more tracks over here.. We have one and its not great.. Drifting is fairly common over here, as is rallying and drinking. and just for the record i dont catch anything really and my car is pretty low.. not shlammed like the VAG heads.. the occasional speedbump but they have to be fairly huge... and we have a rake of potholes

I don't care what any douche does to their car as long as they stay the **** out of my way.

And don't look me in the eye. Don't you dare look me in the eye.

well that is one way to look at it I guess, talk about looking at a glass half full (: I suppose I should stop worrying about what they do. All of the time wasted on them could have been spent educating my self further on car related stuff.
