    Prius drivers by ownership are impressionable toddlers. So it should come a little surprise they drive like toddlers.

    Usually, when making remarks about one's intelligence, you should use it as well.

    I don't understand how you can make fun of someone for being up on their high horse owning a hybrid, yet sit on the forum and talk down about those exact people. To each their own, seriously. They probably cannot, for the life of them, understand why you'd want a little piece of metal in your engine that sucks down MPGs above 4k RPM.

    Taken from that prius forum:

    "I've been reading up on how to launch [a prius]"

    How much information is out there that he can claim to "read up" on how to launch it?

    I was happy to see one guy call them out on the street bike one though:

    "are ya sure they're actually racing? late model sportbikes will get to 60 in first and, even with an average rider, do it in 4 seconds."

    Also of note:

    "prius vs 87 camry 4cyl 2.4L manual

    prius won "

    That made me el oh el.

    I know, some of the discussions on the site is so ridiculous, it makes me even wonder if they are serious lol.

    Lol... I just read a few pages of that thread and I am in disbelief... My parents own a 08 Prius and by far is from fast... It is the slowest thing I have ever driven.

    "Beating a viper with prius" LOL!

    You should see where they claim they can beat a Ferrari ENZO because of the instant torque.

    I just can't tell if they are all serious or not about having a "fast" car. Or is it some type of big hoax? But anyway that was very amusing then if you skip to the end of the thread it turns into a flame war prius owners vs. real life.

    I don't care about your dad. If he's not what I was referring to then you shouldn't be offended. Should you?

    Saving money on gas is AWSOME! But it doesn't have **** to do with saving the general environment. Specifically the environmental cost of even making hybrids. I haven encountered people driving prius(s?) like asses but im sure the outcome would be cheap hilarity for myself.

    Just another version of what goes on in our own "WRX versus the World" forum, and the many claims of stock'ish WRX's beating V8's left and right.
