Are you refering to pinks??? Because the majority of people i see on their are far from emo, far from teenagers and i rarely see much of any emo episodes on their. If you are refering to something then nevermind what i just said.

Sorry, no headbanging to BET.
Oh, and I REFUSE to watch a channel like that which is racism at work since no other channels would DARE call themselves WET, HET, or AET. You get the idea of the first letters. Noooo...if it was, people would be up in arms calling racism. Oh, and BMX, I was referring to "Laguna Beach", another show but that's another rant all together!

Agreed with the racisim issue. But, thats another topic that I would prefer not to fire up here. LOL

I still, and never will consider F1 real racing. To much tech in the cars, to easy to drive. Rally and Ice is where its at. And, NASCAR needs some more credit from the world. No, it dosent take the kind of skill a WRC driver has. But, I would guarantee a F1 driver would do no better than normal in NASCAR, and Vice Versa. There not really a sport anymore. But, this is opinionated. None of us will ever drive both to compare. LOL. I do know this though, the Focus at high speeds on certain roads, LOL, takes much more talent.

MTV still plays nothing worth listening to. Thats why I stick to P2P and BrainGelRadio. Agreed with HEADBANGING its a must. But I get no respect in OHIO. Nothing but REDNECK country. I just wish I could hear some Alice in Chains, or TOOL, maybe some Disturbed. Just to name a few.

No one on here has ever tried it. It may seem simple, but it is not in a car like that. They do not handle well, and they have a ton of POWER, plus skinny tires. In F1 there cars are over done. They go fast, but they handle it very well. The driver is not the KEY eliment in F1, the CAR is. F1 you just have to handle speed, not poor handling or lack of downforce.

^disagreed, Kimi is a MONSTER driver, as are alonso and schumacher, there is ALOT of talent there, its not purely political or technilogical. Although the banning of those dampers was BULLSHIT

So wrong on so many levels. First, let me respond to the post concerning and F-1 driver not doing well in NASCAR. There was an episode on Speed or ESPN, where they swapped Jeff Gordon and his Dupont Car and Juan Montoya and his Williams BMW F-1 car. (ie. the driver drove the other's car). They both had laps to get use to that car and of the times put down. Montoya was faster in BOTH the F-1 car AND the NASCAR car by over 2 seconds. Gordon couldn't drive the F-1 for shit. He was WAY too slow. He even stated that the amount of work it took to simply drive the car, let alone drive it well, was WAY more than that of NASCAR. Even Montoya said the same thing. When asked about the NASCAR, he said it was too heavy, and too slow, yet he bested the NASCAR champion in his own car.

Most of the cars in F-1 are VERY similar. Yes, there are some differences, but there is a HUGE difference between say a Michael Schumacher (German) and a Scott Speed (American). Both can drive F-1 but one is a master, the other, well, yeah. You watch, Montoya is going to tear up NASCAR. He'll either win or crash out. I doubt he'll do anything else. He pushes the cars so hard. Oh, and NASCAR cars have tires that are almost as fat as F-1 does so don't use that as an excuse. NASCAR isn't racing period. They don't have to have the same physical demands put on their bodies that F-1 does as well. F-1 drivers exceed 3 G's in most turns, the necks of most drivers are like football players, their conditioning is sick.

No, F-1 has the fastest cars, but also requires the most real driving skills at that speed. Look at the errors made by Aryton Senna (greatest driver IMO) and Greg Moore (CART), minute errors but cost them their lives. What killed Earnhart? The right turn.
