You're right. I also question the photo that accompanied the story.<p>For some reason, Style never consults with me on such stuff.

Gee. After reading that, I feel like renting a double-bill of "The Fast and the Furious" and "Gone In 60 Seconds." Why? Because crashing your car is cool. It's about freedom.

I wish my daddy owned a Toyota dealership, so I could get into three wrecks with three different cars, with an average value of $40,000, and sit around and laugh about it with my girlfriends afterwards.<p>Also, my favorite line has to be right after the author drops the bomb about the death rate being higher for girls:<p>They're driving, in other words, like guys.<p>I'm inferring like crazy over here.
