GTA has taught me that this is absolutely normal.

Oh it’s way different when you are in game, you are garuanteed to have 1-5 Deloraine flying in the sky and raining hell on everything. By far the most fun I have had in a car in gta online.

I too, like to be blown up while trying to do something

Free roam is such a clusterfuck.

Because it slowly turns into Saints row.

All the enemy cars are purple in the new hiest

You say that like it is a bad thing

I guess different people have different tastes. Yeah its a bad thing for me. I prefer good ol car chases. Gta these days is getting out of control.

I look at it as the game came out in like 2013, I'm fine with the ridiculousness now because it's been out for so long these new things kinda change the game. I hope when 6 comes out or gta:o2 comes out that it stays pretty gta for the first couple years.

But for a game meant as satire of American life, it pretty much nails it!

Everybody wants the freedom to do what they want, but they don't want anyone else to have the freedom to potentially interfere.

Those next level comparisons really do impress me about the game.

It would impress me more if it was an intentional part of the satire and not a byproduct of greed.

Lol. Greed sadly is a major factor in much of American life. They are literally making fun of how many Americans have no problems screwing each other over, if it means they'll get a slight advantage.

It's not an accidental feature of the game... just an unfortunate facet of humanity.

I will now buy $500 worth of Shark Cards thanks to your artistic interpretation of them.

I shouldn't have to pay the insurance on a flying car equipped with rockets. I'm just trying to earn money but those assholes always go for my jet.

It’s the stupidest thing in the game. I wish they were able to write the code so that if you fire on someone first you’re the one who eats the insurance, whereas if you destroy the person who fired on you they should eat that cost too.

But nope. The game is incentivised so fucking with people is rewarded.

It's pretty dumb, but more often than not within a couple tries I'm able to find a session that is relatively empty. Text the people truce in the session and you are good to go. People can be kind if they are also trying to make that money!

Fun fact. Delorians are quite heavy vehicles. The body is made out of stainless steel, and will never rust. The body isn’t painted out of the factory either by the way. The colour that you see is the colour of the steel.

That is a fun fact. Here's another: The Back to the Future Delorean wouldn’t have been able to reach 88mph in the Twin Pines Mall parking lot, unless of course Doc Brown modified the car to have more acceleration. 

Then its a good thing they were in lone pine mall

The one in the middle does not have the black strip going from the rear bumper to the wheel arch, so I guess only 2 of the 3 are the same. Then again I guess some minor details could be lost during time travel.

Or maybe the strip just hasn't been added yet, and the middle one is the youngest version...

Or the strip hasn't been removed. Think outside the box.

So many people say think outside the box. At this point, thinking inside the box is thinking outside the box.

What if it’s not even a closed box, but a bucket, and all sides are outside?

What if the bucket is in a shed and we’re so proud to be outside it we don’t realize we’re still inside?

Think outside the box...everybody's doing it!

Yep. Two Deloreans might be a coincidence, but a monkey with a typewriter banging out Macbeth seems more likely than three Deloreans parked in a row with only fate as the catalyst.

Ooo, ooh! Somebody r/theydidthemath! Estimated number of existing DeLorians in the U.S. by the estimated total of cars.

137 points · 5 months ago · edited 5 months ago

Couldn't find anything for just the USA, but there are estimated to be 6500 DeLoreans left in the world. I'll assume 6000 are in the US. As of 2014, there were 253 million cars on the roads.

Therefore, the probability of finding one DeLorean is 6000/253,000,000 which is 0.00002372, or 2.372 x 10-5 . The probability of finding 3 at the same time would be (2.372 x 10-5 )3 , which equals 0.000000000000013 or 1.3 x 10-14 .

Edit: That's a chance of 1 in about 76.9 trillion (1 in 76,923,076,923,076.92 to be precise). For comparison, the chances of winning the lottery are 1 in 175 million

106 points · 5 months ago

That's if there's a random process generating the DeLoreans. But if it's a non-random process, then this doesn't work. Consider if there is a geographic bias to DeLorean ownership. If 70% of DeLoreans are concentrated in a small area, and this sample was taken in that area, then the probability of this sample occuring would be muuuuuch higher.

Or, you know, DeLorean Meetup.

As reference, the word count of MacBeth is ~17000, and the average wordlength is 4.5 characters.

As each word is followed by either a space or some other reading character, we say 5.5. And let's say 6 because of of our low estimation of the word count, and the fact that semi-colons, comma's are followed by spaces, as well as to account for ' ' ' and ' " ', " - " and such.

This results in 17 * 103 * 6 = 1.02 *105 as an estimate for the amount of characters in MacBeth.

Resulting in a probability of (1/27)1.02 *105 =approx= 7.87 * 10-146000

So I am still betting my money on this being chance, rather that a volume of macbeth been produced by a baboon with a typewriter.

When are we? According to the theory of relativity, time dilation is a difference in the elapsed time measured by two observers, either due to a velocity difference relative to each other, or by being differently situated relative to a gravitational field. But could your own two eyes be considered to be two separate observers?

Does anyone else think a delorean would make a kick-ass electric vehicle?

They could totally capitalize on the 80s nostalgia and even use a similar body style, just with an updated interior.

Seems like a no-brainer to me!

It probably still has too much stigma attached to it. It was a piece of garbage which just looked kinda cool. It flopped badly. In fact I believe one of the reasons for choosing a DeLorean in the movie was to make that a joke in itself, because it was such a piece of crap. "You built a time machine... out of a DeLorean??"

Wouldn’t matter. Unfortunately good marketing is more important than a good product. And there’s no better marketing than a successful movie franchise.

Except the car was out of production and the company shut down before the movie came out. Marketing was irrelevant at that point.
