      So a friend of mine on facebook 'liked' one of her friends pics, of what looks to be a 91 honda. something seemed off with the lights, as they were extremely bright and very blurry, so i loaded the pic up. after investigation i discovered they were 3k hid's installed in stock housing. i proceeded to explain to them the law regarding hid's, how unsafe what they had are, and provided documentation on how to properly install them.

      now i have an army of angry kids wanting to beat my ass cause i 'dont know **** y0' and that they cant be illegal since theyve been driving around with them for the past year.

      a whole year with incorrect, illegal, unsafe, blinding hids? dear lord im staying off the road now. but hey, when they kill someone with them, ill be sure to join the PROSECUTING team and make sure their ass goes to jail for a very long time, just so i can say 'told ya so.'

      Stupid ass mother****ers have existed in every generation.
      As have people who when they get older say "the younger generation scares the living piss out of me" (or similar).

      Also, **** ****ty HID retrofits. I wish they were only confined to the younger generation.

      she goes through boyfriends like a woman gets new shoes.

      no thanks, id prefer not to have any std's. plus, shes a high voltage emotional trainwreck. id rather stab my eyes out with a cattle prod than deal with that.


      on another note, what exactly makes me the ******* for providing documentation and offering to assist with the proper install of hids? is it because i know how to do it? or that i know the science behind rods, cones, and the cornea?

      I just blind these guys with my high beams as they approach. They never have the HIDs wired up correctly so they can't flip theirs on in retaliation.

      HID drop ins are one of my biggest automotive pet peeves. It's a huge problem here in CA. I can't go one night of driving without seeing at least one car that has them.

      send her my way. I'll settle her down. Its a proven fact that I make every other guy on the planet look better. Sad but true. 4 of my ex's have married guys they cheated on me with. Kinda like good luck chuck, in a depressing sort of way.

      i just found out about it 20 minutes ago. thats what they claim, it cant be illegal since theyve done it for so long.

      and ive actually called cops on people having incorrect hids before. just call 911 and claim i was forced off the road because the oncoming traffic lane had someone blinding me

      That's not a waste of your local law enforcement at all!

      Edit: It's also illegal. Making a false police report. So who's more wrong now? You or the drop in HID gang??? Hint, it's not the civic driver that made you start this angry post.

      When stupidity becomes you.
      Lets break it down.. In order to stop illegal light you broke some laws your self.
      1. Misuse of 911
      2. False accusations
      3. Waste of Police time, time they could be used for better things

      So you tell me how are you any better then those kids? Grown man breaking the law and going out of his way to settlea personal grudge

      acutally, improper hids ARE illegal. all the 'drop in' kits state they are for off road use only, or nothing at all. they are also a violation of FMVSS108.

      and its not a misuse of law enforcement, since illegal hid's affect the safety of road travelers.

      You falsely accused somebody for running you off the road. LEOs come out, and arrest the other driver. They investigate, and find out you lied. Now they book you for 4 counts i stated previously, and the kid takes you to court.
      How did you achieve anything positive from this??
      That is why we have DMV, Police and yearly inspection to keep illegal mods of the cars. It doesnt require some self righteous Jackass to take law in his own hands.

      Im getting out of TCL, its giving me a headache.

      its a bit "holier than thou" to go to that level of depth when trying to correct someone.

      you could have gone a different route.
      such as...
      'hey those lights look a little bright. are you sure they are legal? cause they look like a set my friend put in his jdm mad type yo corolla and the cops gave him a $500 ticket'
      epitome

      You know, 911 is for emergency use only. Your local police also have a phone number.

      The one that really scared me was when my brother and his friends decided they loved car surfing. One day in the newspaper I saw a red light camera photo with three kids on the roof of an Eagle Talon that was clocked going twice the limit on a street a few blocks from my mom's house where my brother lives.
      The kids were all brought up on charges, my brother was not among them.

      I don't want to turn this into a social (it already is?) or anthropological thread, but a good measure for judging how the young population is doing is to look at statistics of science ineptness. For example, you can look at outcomes of questionnaires or studies on what percentage of respondents in a particular age group believe the Earth is about 6,000 years old, humans are not derived from ancestors shared with apes, plate tectonics is just a far-flung hypothesis, the embryonic environment and characteristics of the brain are unrelated to gay tendencies, life on Earth is unique, recent global climate change is not man-made, easily-extractable oil reserves are plentiful and not diminishing, immunization causes more harm than good, my own (accidental, by upbringing), regional, personal religious believe is superior - and therefore it should be supported by the community/state/country, etc.

      Try it. You'll find huge regional differences. And it's not the coasts that should fall off the cliff.

      But, see... this is why I LOOOOOVE TCL... dim bulb kids who think they know everything, arguing with older posters as though they're right and being insulting instead of positing a genuine, defensible position. It's endlessly entertaining, like watching one of those trainwreck reality shows...
