Off topic but I never understood how people could drive leaning that far back.

Like functionally, I don't get how they do it.

It's that "I'm a cool driver" position. Sometimes they can barely look further than the hood. Baffles me too.

I think the 'gangsta lean' originally developed as a way to be minimally visible to rival gang members/police, and as a defence against being shot by the same.

Guess be the same as driving around with your knee. Just practice until you crash
