    Just means you have 100 posts or more.

    I didn't have those issues either, only problems with the torrent connecting during first release due to horrendously slow home internet. Still, good to add it to my steam library with everything else :D

    Nope, mine decided they were all invalid which it has never done before except on civ 5.

    Does this answer it (and 21 49 is actually when I restarted steam to try the old copy files into install directory trick I use for every other game but steam is refusing to acknowledge for BeamNG, not when I started the download):

    Watching safety procedure videos for stuff like golf carts, gators, and stuff like that is rather entertaining. It's so fucking corny.
    Anytime you drive your gator you have to wear: Helmet, long sleeves and pants, over the ankle boots, eye protection. haha, no.
    NEVER allow children to ride in the gator. What harm is it gonna do to let a kid ride in it?
    All drivers must be 16 and have a valid drivers license. That one is particularly stupid. It's my fucking gator. It's my fucking land. I can let whoever the hell I want drive my gator.
    Anytime before you drive your gator, check the area for children, pets, and obstructions. So I'm suposed to check the perimeter before I drive it? No. Fuck you john deere.
    Always wear seatbelts. I only occasionally wear seat belts in a car, what makes you think I'm gonna belt up to drive around at 10 mph in a utv?
    Never let someone ride in the cargo box. There's only 2 fucking seats on the thing where the hell are they supposed to sit?
    The passenger must have their seatbelt on and holding the oh-shit-handles at all times with both feet planted firmly on the floor. Really, who does that?
    5 minutes into this video they've said "wear a helmet at all times" at least 10 times.
    Bahahahahaha this fag driving the gator in this video stopped at the bottom of this puny little hill and put it in 4 wheel drive, then as soon as he got to the top he stopped and disengaged it. It's so corny.
    Never leave the gator running unattended. Why? WHY?! Give me a good fucking reason, deere.
    Ah finally done with that video. This shit pisses me off. It's so stupid.

    Oh here's a john deere riding lawn mower safety video. This is gonna be stupid.

    - - - Updated - - -

    This video starts with a bunch of little kids talking about adults responsibility.
    This makes me not like john deere.

    I sort of think the whole "senior member" system should be reconfigured. Maybe a while ago 100 posts meant you were senior, but not now. People who I consider senior have at least 350 posts, many upwards of 500. The member at 50 posts (I think) still works, but "senior" is no longer senior.

    Honestly, I dont get why you wouldnt wear your seatbelt in a car? Having been in smashups I'll say its there for a damn bloody good reason. Even on private land I wear it let alone public roads (where in Britain it is a fine-able offense for an occupant of the vehicle to not be wearing a seatbelt where provided).
    The helmets, long sleeves, valid drivers license etc, yeah, thats definitely un-necessary. Checking for obstructions, you've basically duplicated exactly what my stepdad said before he smashed the blades off of the ride-on lawn mower as he hit a metal stake poking out of the field.
    Cargo box, do you live in redneck county? Its designed to take 2 people, not 20. Again thats actually an offense on a british road, but a gator isnt going on road and I will admit I've ridden in the back of a pickup on private land, but they do have a point that its not meant to take people back there by design and its hardly the safest form of transport.
    4wd. Those gators do not have a centre differential. Driving around in 4wd un-necessarily will cause transmission windup and damage. They arent meant to shift while moving and may suffer damage.

    There is alot they have to say though just in order to avoid litigation. You just know that one day someone will fall off the gator and blame john deere immediately and sue them for all they have. If john deere turn around and state a helmet must be worn at all times and the person who falls off isn't wearing one, suddenly they have covered their asses when that person brings a lawsuit around.

    You should probably wear your seatbelt in your car. (I agree with pretty much the rest of it though.)

    I was in an accident last year. It wasn't that fast but the only thing keeping me from smashing into the windshield was the seatbelt. (Airbags didn't go off.)

    My brother headbutted the dash just from me slamming the brakes at 10mph, that was hilarious for me and not so hilarious for him.

    I usually do.
    I always do if I'm in the front seat, and if I'm in the back or third row, I'll wear it if we go on interstates or highways, but if we're just cruising along the suburban roads of west Knoxville sometimes I don't put it on. Well sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.
    Yes it is kinda stupid, but I find them extremely irritating.

    - - - Updated - - -

    In the video it actually said that you can switch 4wd on and off while moving.
    I understand the point, you shouldn't cruise around in 4wd or switch to and from it at speed, it just looked so stupid.
    Yeah I know it's to avoid getting sued, but doesn't mean it isn't entertaining to poke fun at.
    I usually walk around the yard before I mow and check for large dog toys, anything that'll get in the way of mowing, that's smart to do. But it'd be kinda goofy to do that before every time you move an atv, wich is what the video was for.
    The cargo box: done it countless times. Kinda fun. I've also been in the back of a pickup truck many times on public roads.
    Us muricans must just be bigger risk takers (more stupid) than you people in the uk.
