Definitely put my life at risk every time I happen to be on the M25 to the west of Hounslow.

When you p*** everyone in the supermarket car park off as you slowly reverse out of your bay then pause for a while as you await the imaginary tug to drive off. Of course brake testing proceeding this makes you very popular too.

When you realise that wearing the pilot suit featuring your wings is naff, and you roll up to fly in a beat up old car looking more like a mechanic.....
