I saw that one. It was a Shelby GT 500.

He whined about the small gas tank and complained about the engine noise. While he was driving he was making fun of the various information options, etc. It was non-stop snark. When he was on the Ferry across the channel, people flocked to the car and he just stood there wondering why.

I don't know how much of it was just for the show or if he really feels that way.

It seems whenever any of them tested an American Muscle car, especially the Mustangs, the entire segment consists of them squealing with pleasure, having a great time and then exiting with great big shit eating grins.

Then, they get all serious and start whining about the lack of leather dashes and computer controlled, all wheel drive with predictive Fuck Up Mitigators. Oh, and comparing them to Euroweenie cars that cost twice as much.

As long as existing programs do not intentionally or through some structural issues, exclude groups, the government should stay the hell out.

If this or that group is under represented in some discipline and the only reason is they choose not to attend, then there is no role for the Government to play.

This applies to Steel Workers or STEM workers.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
