GTA has taught me that this is absolutely normal.

[–]Time_Lapses 689 points690 points  (75 children)

Yeah, bay area bugs

[–]MARCO5424 310 points311 points  (73 children)

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.

[–]StormInMyDreams 336 points337 points  (23 children)

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

[–]GallopingGepard 92 points93 points  (21 children)

Free roam is such a clusterfuck.

[–]Lukebekz 10 points11 points  (3 children)

You say that like it is a bad thing

[–]Wildicki 15 points16 points  (2 children)

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.

[–]DabSlabBad 10 points11 points  (1 child)

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.

[–]karmckyle 118 points119 points  (14 children)

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.

[–]paul12132 59 points60 points  (12 children)

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

[–]karmckyle 43 points44 points  (10 children)

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.

[–]GrandmasterSexay 16 points17 points  (4 children)

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

[–]_Molobe_ 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Greed is a major factor in human life, it’s not just limited to America.

[–]RS177 82 points83 points  (36 children)

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.

[–]Hawkguy85 78 points79 points  (35 children)

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.

[–]biliyorumbilmiyorum 32 points33 points  (3 children)

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!

[–]RS177 13 points14 points  (23 children)

Oppressors are even worse. Hitting them is almost impossible and you have to pay $30,000.

[–]codemanhaggard 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    My brother has a DeLorean. He had the Back to the Future theme playing for his prom date. The license plate said NOCOKE. Needless to say it was later changed.

    [–]OFWGKTV 22 points23 points  (2 children)

    [–]ziggster_ 25 points26 points  (8 children)

    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.

    [–]HRCsmellslikeFARTS 8 points9 points  (3 children)

    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. 

    [–]coolangattic 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Then its a good thing they were in lone pine mall

    [–]Wassayingboourns 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Another fun fact that I think may not be well known: the two wheels you see on one side of a DeLorean DMC-12 have identical twins on the other side.

    [–]poopellar 32 points33 points  (8 children)

    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.

    [–]_Mephostopheles_ 66 points67 points  (7 children)

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

    [–]-1KingKRool- 39 points40 points  (6 children)

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

    [–]guytoronto 20 points21 points  (5 children)

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

    [–]MarvinTheAndroid42 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    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?

      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.

      [–]Nicknack_paddywack 89 points90 points  (19 children)

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

      [–]suckit5253 136 points137 points  (15 children)

      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

      [–]voidptr 104 points105 points  (8 children)

      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.

      [–]Masivigny 21 points22 points  (0 children)

      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 *10^(5) =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.

      [–]aymantargaryen 19 points20 points  (0 children)

      Shouldn't it be estimated number of existing DeLorians in the U.S. by the estimated of total alive monkeys with a typewriter banging out Macbeth?

      Given most DeLorean owners are in clubs for them, the odds are actually pretty good. Then again I'm surprised 3 DeLoreans in the same area are actually running.

      [–]Pig_Becker 10 points11 points  (0 children)

      Somebody send for the admin.

      [–]wintremute 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      It's just a club meetup. I'm sure they're in the nearest bar.

      [–]vMambaaa 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      I don't think it's that weird. The one thing that Delorean owners love is other people that own Deloreans. He belongs to a club of other owners.

      Left from behind car is the car that came from the future in this timeline for test purposes.

      Right from behind car is the same car but it came from the past from test purposes got damaged and got to be repaired in a series of wacky and zany adventures.

      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!

      [–]GroovingPict 50 points51 points  (6 children)

      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??"

      [–]Prismagraphist 17 points18 points  (2 children)

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

      [–]ObidiahWTFJerwalk 17 points18 points  (1 child)

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

      [–]-eccentric- 16 points17 points  (0 children)

      What a coincidence, I also saw them tomorrow!

      Its like in gta when the game fucks up and spawns several rare cars at once.

      [–]BennettF 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Must be an anniversary special, Doctor Who style: The Three Docs.

      [–]Goggle_los18 13 points14 points  (1 child)

      Wow the VR expansion for the Doomsday Heist looks dope

      [–]modkipod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Expansion for an expansion?

      When three alternate realities combine... Three DeLoreans, coming to a cinema near you this summer

      [–]Crunchy_bastards 5 points6 points  (4 children)

      There is one parked inside the building of an abandoned car dealership by my house. I want it so bad

      [–]ThinkThisThru 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      Can you imagine the fast and furious/ back to the future crossover heist someone could come up with?

      [–]jonathannluke 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Gag me with a DeLorean!

      [–]epicsnail14 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      It's the same DeLorean from 3 different times

      [–]AMobileSasquatch 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      He'd have taken a picture of the 4th but he was outa time.

      [–]MrNiosy 5 points6 points  (2 children)

      Looks like the annual time traveler meeting.

      [–]abendsaronal 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      They meet every year in the same year.

      Thought this was a GTA Online thread for a second...

      One goes to the future, ones goes to the past, and one simply goes really really fast

      3 healthbars

      As long as the drivers don’t see each other, space time is okay.

      [–]IAmNotAmerican 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I think you found 1 DeLorean, parked at different times.

      [–]Peteg413 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Some one is prepping for a heist setup!

      [–]Alc4n4tor 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      A time traveler meet up spot.

      [–]Rahilu14 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Oh, this is heavy...

      [–]ZigzagPolo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Looks like the parking lot of a Time travelers anonymous meeting

      [–]eagerbeaverweaver 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      There’s a sale on flux capacitors

      [–]Octagore 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I went to high school with a kid who drove one. Fuck that guy.

      When your friends have deluxos and you don’t

      [–]jack-fractal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      It's probably the same DeLorean times three.

      [–]BOWLER606 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Is there some sort on convention going on nearby?

      [–]benkenobi8383 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      The results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe!

      [–]dewart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      The sequel: Back To The Parking Lot.

      [–]Saratje 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      That's actually one and the same DeLorean, it just exists in duplicates because of time travel.
