ahh yes, you are right. when you're talking about retarding the timing of an engine. Fire retardant works by retarding the progress of fire. But he wasn't using it as a verb. HIS sentence would have been properly worded as "I hope they have fire retardant in their homes", or " I hope they have fire retarded their homes"[ past tense usage] or even yet; " I hope they have fire retarding in their homes". [ present tense]

Take all that SMR to the track, and actually learn something, instead of trying to get killed on the street. Or ride in smaller packs, and dont take the same roads every stupid sunday.
Sry, I find that oncoming traffic is a bit more technical then a race track. But thats just me.

Calling the cops, NP. thats your right. Throwing out on the road...? This is why I like live in a country where carrying concealed is legal. U r a f@g and should be shot out of a cannon.

I agree throwing on the road is a lot out of line.

Did you mean "alot out of line" as in, way out of line or did you mean it was a parcel of land that was misaligned?
While it is an awkwardly worded sentence it could be correct if you used "alot" correctly.
Let's watch our grammer and spelling more carefully, ok?

I understand where your coming from.... but last time I checked, there wasn't a Texas Autobaun anywhere to be found. speed limits are everywhere. only relative "safe" place to unleash is the track. 1/4 mile or road course.

A lot is always two seperate words... you need to go back to school.

Dammit I HATE it when I'm wrong (especially when I am correcting and ridiculing someone)!
I blame Mala Lingua, she got onto people for saying a lot because she claimed it is alot. I took her word for it because she is some kinda English perfessor or sumpthin'.

"sir Im going to have to ask you to your anger!"

"Its good my anger is retarded, its retarded, Im retarded"

On another note....seriously? You speed down a rural country road, and are upset because the people that live there don't like it? You sir are a douche bag! Those cops are there to keep people safe, you can't get mad at them for trying to keep the punks from endangering families, pets, kids that live out there. If you're gonna play the game, you can't get mad when you get caught dude.
