LOL if you can drive in blizzrds then you could drive in LA traffic pretty good.They say people in LA would have a hard time driving in conditions like you have back east because we arent used to it.
I read those same statistics too about crime declining.But I guess where im at i dont see that as true with the gang violence.From what I see and hear its worse unfortunately:-(

LOL! Yeah when I do my blizzard thing people switch into the lane next to me and if there isn't one there they slow down and drive about 5 car lengths behind. Then I also do the thing that Whiteboy does. I love doing donuts. One time I tried to pass a car that was going really slow and I almost hit an oncoming car. When I swerved back into my lane I started to fish tail!! :shock: Damn near killed all my friends that were with me!!!
Is it really expensive to live in LA?

man,,,, we flipped a 72 chevelle the first snow of the year back in 02,,, ive put many cars into ditches, hit curbs and busted wheels and all that other crazy shit, but put me on some hot asphalt in a riced out eclipse or a wrx/sti/impreza,,, somthing fast and ill tear that bitch up.... driving in the snow takes some skill,, combine that with gravel and its even worse.
all the cities are expensive to live in any where... ive been looking for an apartment they start one bed rooms at like 500,,, then they jump from that to like 2 stacks a month.

I'm not into the whole fast and furious thing. I prefer a nice big, old, american car. 1960's-1980's models. Cadillac, Chevy, Buick. Especially back when Buick was a BUICK!!! And I love convertibles.
I really love lowriders!

have you ever been to an all black neighborhood? like i mean the ghetto,,, a poor area,,
the south side of the chi and also the west side,,, you hear crazy stories, watch movies and build this perception that, people are walking in and out of places jacking them stick up kids getting cars and all that,,, i mean it does happen and all,, but its not really like what you see. most of the time i get treated like im a cop, so no one really wants to make a move, but when you've got a good linebacker sized gentlemen and the qb walking with you,,
ive also seen my homies get check by their people like "why you bringin that cracker ass cop up in here?!?!"

Of course I have been to an all black neighborhood. We have them here and in Buffalo. Unity Park, Center Court, Jordan Gardens ect. It's just that I thought that maybe it actually it IS like that or something. I know that the media makes it sound like you need AK-47's and grenade launchers just to buy milk and it's not true. I'm not dumb. I know.

AAAAHH HA HA HA HA!
You should mess with them and say something like "Yeah I got shot 5 times and stabbed 4!!" And wear an eye patch or something! That would really mess with someone! People think that I live in a super dangerous area. But that's only because they live in $200,000 houses! You can safely walk down the street and be perfectly fine. Put it this way. It is safe enough for 4 suburban kids to just walk down the street and be untouched. However if they go into the projects themselves they might have something said to them but that's it.

lol Ive thought of that too.tell them what they want to hear but at the same time it just feeds into the perception that people have of us.And your right it usually does come from people in the suburbs.They are "like why do you live there?" I just tell them well because i just do and why do you live where you live? then they just shut up.
