Where bad choices make good stories
#14. Why are you in a bar that has Beiber songs in the first place?
..to go in and put stoopid music on the box, then leave. Geez.
With TouchTunes you can play bad music at local bars from the comfort of your own home. You can also play good music for friends who are out at the bar when you can't make it.
I have seen #2 several times before, but this is the first time I noticed the flammable/combustible placard on the back of the car.
#14: The bars I throw darts with, and most of the others, have those 'connected' jukeboxes. On dart night, I bring up the other bars we play at, and play Tiny Tim about every other song. I got pissed one night and blew through $20, hitting a half dozen other bars with Lawrence Welk, Slim Whitman and Tiny Tim on loop. Made me happy.
(Old Tech) James Last Polka Party - my dad would leave his grave just to listen to it again.
#14 Who the hell goes to a bar with Justin Bieber songs on the jukebox?
#15, damn, I never thought of that
#2 The Ford Pinto, which apparently had an optional exploding fuel tank in the rear, activated by a rear-end collision. Yeah, I remember that. How many people died from that anyway? I think Ford redesigned the tank to make it less likely to explode on impact, but by then the damage was done. A high school friend had one of these and we left the highway on a sharp curve in east Tennessee, Hwy 27, and we all survived, but the Pinto itself stayed on an outcropping where it landed, on four wheels, for several days until it was hoisted out by the town wrecker service....it wasn't pretty.
Friend had a Pinto back in the early 70's. That thing was the most unstable car I've ever been in. Driving straight down the road and concerned you might just fly off the road.
Not sure about other makes, but a few of the early 60s Fords, the Mustang especially, had the same defect. The tank was not a complete full cell, the top of the tank was the bottom of the trunk. When rear-ended, it could rupture and spew fuel on the exhaust and\or interior.
My bro bought a new Pinto in like '72. Didn't have 100 miles on it when he wrapped it around a tree hard enough to break the motor mounts and tear the engine out. He wasn't seriously injured..probably because he was drunk.
#2 - what Drew Peacock would call a "sad boy ricer" 😅#5 - rats sense of smell is 5 times better than dogs. 😉
What was that .. I think, ford product with the rear engine. It's was a very light car with a heavy back end. after reaching about 60 or 70 mph, the front end had a tendency to 'float' leaving you with a serious steering problem. .. they were really cute as a red convertible with white interior ... Jenny Jones of the the former 'Jenny Jones Show' out of Chicago. had one when she was a road drummer with Jenny and the Upset, circa 66. It was taken off the road by Ralph Nader back in the 60s or 70s. I just remember shit like that. I was in the band.
That was the Chevy Corvair. The problem was that the rear (drive) axles had only one U-joint each, causing the wheel to roll under the car under hard cornering, and that's a simplified explanation.You did even more drugs than I did, and I stand in awe. Shit, I was a needle freak, and acid was (& remains) my favorite drug. My cover is off to you, J West.--Tennessee Budd
Chevrolet Corvair, maybe?
5: If I remember right a dog technically has a 5,000x more sensitive nose than a person. Great for stuffing into a pile of fresh steamy shit. Or my dog smelling cheese from 50 feet and 3 rooms away.#12 is at that age when you wonder just a little if you should have forced some awful religion on her. Honestly all you can do is be a strong positive male role model in her life because if she doesn't have one of those she's gonna make some really bad choices. An older brother or two issuing beatdowns also helps.16: Me, answering the phone in this situation: "Hey Nico, it's your cousin Roman! Wanna go bowling?" #7 and 20 are relatable. Way too relatable.
