Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Chases 200 MPH in Europe – Epic Drives Episode 3 — 19 Comments

  1. So I got around to reading his reply. First, he says I’m trying to sound “superior” (yeah, “credibility” is such a BIG word) and then he says our vocabulary is too narrow. He says my words are too pretentious (“adopted”—such obscure terms!) and then says things like “bewildered.” He says I hate Europe (????) and then calls us fools. All his arguments are ad-hominem attacks and yet he has the nerve to accuse us of perpetual hostility. Guys, he’s a troll. He can’t POSSIBLY be serious

  2. I thought I said I wasn’t playing your game. You’re beneath me and I’m not wasting any more time with you–get that through your thick skull. Blabber all you want, I’m not replying to you any further.

  3. Haha bring out the vocabulary now and throw in silly, pretentious words that nobody actually use to assume some kind of superiority. Its just amazing what a tiny fraction of the english language you guys use. Its just amazing to me… This Europe-hate and flagwaving from you bewildered fools. Regardless of topic. It took you guys only a few generations to forget where your grandparents came from. Whats with the perpetual hostility and pathologic aversion towards anything foreign.

  4. Yes, you’re right, English is not the language of Americans. They originally spoke American and went over to England and heard the language spoken there and adopted it. That’s how it went. And I don’t need to justify anything. Sorry to disappoint you, Dr. Linguist, but I’m not playing your game–and not because I think you’ll spank me, as you clearly don’t know jackshit about language (“aswell”…), but because I don’t want to lend any credibility to your pretend erudition. Nice try, though.

  5. Christ.. are you lashing out in defense of “winningest” ? Really ? Grow a fucking vocabulary.. Americans dont care about raping the language because its not theirs… Its English. However… Winningest doesnt hold up gramatically. Cannot be grouped with other words and simply doesnt work. This is far from MY personal opinion. Perhaps you will justify “aluminum” too.

  6. Also, thanks for spelling my last name right :D It’s a bit embarrassing that I can’t correct that typo.

  7. Anti-American commentary, especially in places like YouTube, is no more than a mash of tired, groundless cliches; debunked myths; hypocrisy; shortsightedness; bigoted, irrational hatred; hopeless ignorance; and a zealous refusal to admit to being wrong, even remotely so. Add a splash of immaturity, a sprinkle of pretend erudition, a kiss of attention whorism, a touch of insecure nationalism, and liberal amounts of arrogance, and baby, you’ve got a stew going. Don’t fall prey to them.

  8. Here we go again with the “proper English” idiots. BrEn is no more a preserved form of whatever it is that you consider to be “proper” English than AmEn. Both have evolved out of deserving to be called “proper” or “improper.” In this particular case, “zee” originated in 17th-century Britain. And regardless, saying “Zed R1″ when that’s not the conceived pronunciation makes you sound like a pedantic, immature, I-want-to-prove-myself-to-the-world 20-something, which—oh, Goodness—you are.

  9. Janusha is a faggot, I know people that knows him. You are right, he bashes, every car built here in the USA. I was told that he drives a piece of shit VW Rabbit thats beat all to hell. Janusha is a Keyboard Rambo and is anti American. Also Janusa is just jealous because he wishes he could afford a Vett, or Viper. He is supposed to be a growm man, but lives and sponges off his elderly disabled mother. He is a pathetic fool..

  10. You have met Janusha, the biggest internet troll ever. Janusha is so full of shit. Nobody can stand him. He talks all kinds of smack with his keyboard, but can’t prove anything except that he is an uneducated know-it-all. Give him hell Lockdown260.

  11. Oh, no. That idiot Janusha is at it again on this channel. Janusha is the biggest YouTube troll on the internet. He doesn’t know squat about anything, yet he thinks he does. Give him hell AlvinDavenport !!!

  12. ….and England is not Europe. England is a country on an island called Britain, an island which lies outside of the European continent….and Justin Bell – is English.

  13. Wonderful video, guys. Might you do one on the Tail of the Dragon soon? If so, I’d love to voluntter myself as writer and host. (It was worth a shot!) I live in Atlanta, and, after discovering the Tail two years ago, I haven’t been able to get enough of it.  I don’t care what Clarkson says, it’s the best driving road…in the world.
