If some people want to volunteer to throw themselves under the bus in a fit of moral superiority, fine. Far be it from me to stop them. But, not me, thanks, and the moral superiority would certainly something to disagree upon.
Thankfully, Skewed, the flag belongs to all of us. Even obnoxious pukes like you.
wow that sucks about the car. I know how much the 1 week rental car thing sucks. when I got sandwhiched in my 86 camry they gave me a week to find a car with $650 they gave me for the old one. best thing I found was $1300 and I had to take a parent-loan.
as for the thread-jacking...so far I agree with everything said against Mr incredible. only insecure wankers or stuck up jocks would name themself something like 'mr incredible'. even mid-size cars are massively out of proportion of safety, economy, and interior space. that and modern SUVs aren't any safer than a modern mid-size except there's a bigger chance to roll over and they waste more gas.

Sorry to hear about your crash, and especially your parents.
But, really, "selfish safety"? I don't have the words to express my incredulousness.
this is off subject, so it will be my last post on this thread...
i believe what Mr. Incredible is trying to convey is that this(USA) is still the land of the free and freedom to choose what we purchase is our right. perhaps many of us do make bad choices, but who ELSE should be able make decisions, like buying a car, for us?
as far as the screen name, i think it's cool. besides incredible is relative...incredibly what? humble, handsome, harry?
where i work there is comradery among the drivers that produces playful name calling such as "superstar","big money","hero", etc. but that involves enjoying the company of others and making friends along the way. some here, it seems, would not understand that concept.
suggestions of arrogance or insecurity are WAY out of line, especially since most of us have not met. judgements passed, if at all, should not be made on that premise.
