    This is kind of disgusting. I mean, flinging totally useless junk I can understand, but pianos and cars? My gosh, don`t fling `em - give them to me! I could use a different car, and if those pianos are any good they could be sold for a few grand. Please, with gas prices the way they are I`d be ecstatic to have the fuel he wasted setting them on fire!

    "maybe he should give some of his money to the poor instead of being a [email protected]???"

    How do you know he dosent? Just because he made a treb out of a bunch of trees he cut down? And whats so bad about making a treb, having an intrest in history? Would you rather he be out putting expincive and useless RIMS on his car and doing drive-bys and smokin weed all day?

    ahem... get over it... he did it in England, and therefore doesnt give a crap about the gas prices in America!

    oh, and that was pretty cool... nothing more satisfying than destroying cars! :-D
    (also, the reason it`s legal is coz its on his own land... he can do what he likes on his land... wish i owned land like that :-(...)

    "easy tiger... i was just expressing my opinion on a completely stupid post (whats this clip got to do with gas prices??!)..."

    What`s "completely stupid" is wasting vehicles, musical instruments, and *fossil fuel used to blow them up as they go flying overhead.* That`s what gas prices have to do with it.

    I was talking about *wastefulness* and I`m certain you can see that. Even if you can`t, then you`ll probably see what I mean when you`re supporting yourself in a few years the way I am now. It`s not easy, and you will probably learn that quickly once you leave school.

    Clearly you`re just being mean-spirited. If you like the video, fine, but there is no reason to go attacking others or their ideas.

    I hate people with too much money. You know why?

    Think about it. there must be a certian amount of money in the world at one time, very little is made or destroyed, therefor if one person has too much, say 10, 100 or even 1000 people might not have enough. as many of you may know, we once tried (and failed) to split the money evenly (it was called communism).

    In short, our economy sucks, and this rich bastard isn`t helping.

    Urg, I am caught in the old US vs. Rest-of-the-world arguement. But please go on, its so amusing to hear all your useless nonsensical ranting.

    To those europeans, It says "canada" but I was born in europe acutally. I dont really agree with this stereotype *cough* typical american (fill in the blank)s.

    Ahhh nvm, you guys need to settle this the old fashoned way, a trebuchet-waterballoon fight.

    Seriously, I have done this ^ and its friggin awesome, when you have a dozen of these balloons the size of an orange, you just get pelted down and owned. Its more of a test of math actually, but still incredibly fun
