Ben Affleck was clocked at doing 114mph here in Georgia recently (reported on the AM radio station I usually listen to at work).
You'd think a big star could afford a car that would do more than that.
What a terrible tragedy. Someone buy the guy a Boxster or something.
Well he certainly could afford the fine. It's reported he followed them to the jail paid the fine of $1140 and drove off. What's a $1000 to guy making millions?Hopefully it's nothing more than a need for speed, but sadly there's likelymore problems behind this one. He's no Robert Downey Jr. acting-wise and we don't need anymore folks trying to achieve his off the screen status.
I think money makes you more of what you are. If you are generous friendly person you'll be moreso. If you are an egomaniac you turn into an asshole.
I like that... of course that means if I ever become rich I'll turn into an asshole a generous friendly person.
Not that I'm likely to become rich in this lifetime.
Oh, come on. Like none of you have ever driven a car past 100mph... I've had mine up to 140 on the interstate. I just didn't get caught.
I'm with you Ryan. The guy got a ticket for speeding, big deal. I'm guessing 90% of drivers frequently exceed the speed limit. I'm not sure if that's the case in the States, tell me I'm wrong.
I don't know, my speedometer only goes up to 85.
So did mine at the time. I wrapped it back past 85, to 0, then all the way up to 40. After measuring the dial and having friends pace me, we figured 0 is right around 100, so back to 40 is about 140.
Would have kept going except the speedo began spinning like a top. Good thing, since I was probably close to blowing that poor little 2.8l V6 up...

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
