+11 3. GerardF1 commented 3 years ago on video The cheapest car in Mexico vs. the cheapest car in the U.S.

The Mexican car is a 1991 Nissan Sentra, still being built after all these years. No wonder it failed. It comes from an era where cars were not designed to today's standards

Great job .. Dad .. tie a knot in the seatbelt right at my sternum so that when you crash it - and that is inevitable - you will concentrate the forces right there .. What an asshole.

-4 12. GerardF1 commented 6 years ago on video 50 Cal ricochet knocks off earmuffs

#9 anyone who brings up the "right to keep and bear arms" without taking into account the fact that at the time that was written the most efficient rifleman could get off at most two rounds a minute and was at best able to hit something that was within 30 yards ( maybe ) is missing reality entirely. No one has the right to have a military weapon. Gone to shoot some deer with that thing? You want to have everyone with unlimited weapons fine have a 18th century musket. You want modern weapons you go through background checks and have a reasonable waiting period. ( I know I know you want that new 9mm because you are angry now and after 7 or 14 or 21 days you will be all calmed down and won't need it.)

#19

"And the VW is not the mild mannered grocery-getter that it appears to be ; it is a 5000 lb SUV with the 5L V10 TDI diesel with over 553 ft lbs of torque and an electronicly controlled AWD drive train that is one of the best in the world."

That engine is not available in North America - which is where this took place. The best he has is 406 ft pounds of torque

Who knows what the Chev has in it - and the VW gave him the edge in getting the pull started and he still motored away.

Is he married to or has slept with a first cousin or closer relative? Does he sit in the infield in NASCAR races screaming 'MURICA? Does he own 4 pick-ups three of which are being used for parts to keep the fourth on the road? This isn't a redneck

#17 If they are so easy to find why are you so wrong.

2009 US death per 100,000 total firearm related deaths is 10.07
2011 UK was at 0.25

If you insist on sticking to just homicides

US was at 3.7
UK at 0.04

There is skill in being able to react quickly - but pure stupidity in putting him/her self into the position where they needed to react like that. Soon or later they will exceed their skill level and the world has another organ donor

#18

So the computer did not pick up a fault that wouldn't have happened unless someone physically screwed with the wiring.

Proves exactly nothing other than a computer can't find something it wasn't programmed for ... especially when you have someone deliberately trying to avoid being detected.

+3 28. GerardF1 commented 9 years ago on video Expert recreates Toyota sudden acceleration

Jury-rigging a car to "suddenly accelerate" proves nothing. The reporter said that the brakes didn't work and had to be corrected by the guy who did the jury-rigging. Seems like a attempt by some to try and generate bad press on Toyota in the hopes that some people will buy a domestic car. Give me a broken Toyota any day over anything GM makes
