always post this


but srsly there is so much hate in this world. I guess its how you are brought up and the morals your parents impose onto you.

People are ready to risk-it-all; you really don't know if they guy you pissed off or whatever just lost his house, spouse infidelity. Shit I don't know how emotionally unstable I would be in those situations as well.

Its a damn shame; but so it goes. Be careful and vigilant out there folks...don't matter if they hopped out a RR phantom or a homeless person. I just try to stay in my lane

Made ABC World News Tonight

Shooter was identified as the driver of the BMW.

Several Million more now have the perception of BMW Driver reinforced as asshat who killed a member of Armed Forces on side of road.

A good reminder for everyone to not carry on the stereotype and drive safely, especially this Holiday Week.

I'm a new BMW owner. However, I did notice the behavior of BMW drivers on our freeway prior to buying one myself . They appeared to drive much, much faster than the others. Do you think that it's due to the tremendous HP that our vehicles have? Thoughts?

Almost all BMWs feel very stable and quiet at speed. Very easy to be going 80mph and not realizing it

This....At 50mph, the car feels like it's going 40mph. At 100mph, feels like 80mph.

This weekend I thought I was doing 60 on the metro area interstate, looked down and saw 75! I'll have to be careful if I don't want to see whirling blue lights in my rear view mirror!

My wife and I have considered moving to Florida/ USA.. from Canada.

Part of our discussions were the fact that people are armed.. and a ton of sketchy people... still considering it, as $$ , taxes, beaches and sun still outweigh the minuses..

In Canada, gun violence is non existant.. as it is illegal carry.. unless you are transporting them to a gun range.. and hand guns are restricted; need a special permit with a thorough process to obtain.

Not sure why people need them ? Im far from democratic, but whats the point of owning them, Unless your hunting.

Toronto is a different beast, and it is just usually gang related and unfortunately a certain minority responsible for it.. not to sound prejudice.

I'm not sure why Canada still has pictures of the reigning British monarch on all of their coins, and the USA has a picture of some 250-year-old dude who kicked British butt by organizing citizen militias on our $0.25 coin and $1.00 bill? I wonder if there's a connection?????
