    "Speed kills" is a true statemant but a better version of it is
    "speeders kill friends, family, and strangers".  That makes it clear
    that speeders do not simply endanger themelves, but also others.

    170 in a Camaro?  What did it have in it?

    You’ll have to remember Loco Laura uses a different dictionary than the
    rest of the world. Her definition of "speed" coincides with reality’s
    definition of "incompetent driver."

    170 mph on the freeway?  Not even you are that stupid.

    PS – why don’t you get a screen alias that makes sense?

    If by "speeders" you mean "people who exceed the posted limit" then you
    are wrong. That set encompasses nearly everyone on the roads and the
    demonstrable fact is that they almost *never* kill anyone.

    Here’s a question for you: if you take a road and lower the limit, does
    that immediately cause all the people who are now speeding to kill
    someone?

    If the freeway is empty, why not?

    Three completely separate but equal violations of Usenet in one post,
    I have to thank you for being so obvious in your trolling.  I get to
    plonk your retarded ass before I actually have to read anything you
    ever post.
