    Infracted.
    I don't think that infraction was really fair. The OP did say "fire away."

Paid my own insurance and gas too, with the part time job I had while in High School. Supported later cars with near full-time restaurant work while I was in University. It's not easy to get by in the US without a car, so yeah, we do tend to get them while in University and before.

    She was the best damned woman that I ever seen
    She had the sightless eyes, telling me no lies

    That's nice. Sometimes you need that kick so you can get out of the crappy job and look for something better.

    I used a bike and bought prodigious amounts of alcohol


    I lived 5 minutes from school - also gas is like $2 a liter

    most places in the US are not really accesible for someone without a car. Granted a lot of places are, but so many large communities are spread out enough that it would be highly inconvenient to not own a car. Public transportation is pretty slim over here as well.
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    If I posted a thread titled "Man arrested for possessing child pornography" with the thread text saying "Post jailbait pictures", would that make those responses not against the rules?

    25 miles from my house to my high school Aint biking that at 6 in the morning. (Which is when I leave, or around the time I leave since I get their early and work on stuff before class starts, which is at 7:15)

    Granted, I would much prefer to bike to school, but it's just not a viable option for me sadly.

    First car: 1992 Ford F-150 XLT in mint condition from my grandfather whom we bought it from. (Mint condition meaning he just took care of it, still has about 124k miles on it.)

    Same here! Besides saving money for alcohol is very important!

    Edit: With here I do actually mean The Netherlands, not Japan. Here I used the bus from university that was free or went by foot. Which ment about 20 minutes walking!

    Curious for responses from others throughout Europe.

    Typically in America, most young people get a car from 16-18. Some are just given one from their parents. Some work and save. Some share with their siblings.

    I was 18, a month or so away from graduating. It was a piece of crap, 88 Chevy Cavalier.
    I got my car about 7 months before I turned 18, which is normal, or even a little late for my area.

    Depends on where you live here in Sweden I'd say, people in cities don't use cars that much unless you need it for work(public transport is pretty great), I barely use mine tbf, almost never in the city. Takes me 10-15 minutes to walk to Uni(5 minutes) and work(10-15). But if you live out in the middle of nowhere a car is pretty essential. My parents summer house got very little public transport to talk about for example, I'm not sure there are any buses in the summer(closest buss stop is 10km away in the summer), during school terms the bus stops twice a day on the closest highway.

    Can't drive(you can practise with parents if you have applied for permission) unless you are 18 anyways, so youths and teens use bikes or mopeds.

    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
