I still can't imagine why anyone would willingly want to repeatedly perform such touchy and precise control manipulations.
I used to be a horrible driver.
Seriously bad, as in, I wrecked four cars in two years.Thankfully never causing any bodily harm to anyone. Of course, that was when I was 16, but I fault this largely on my inability to focus while driving an automatic. I would *space out* while driving on straight roads for long periods of time or even sometimes when going through repetitive stop-and-go traffic. The first car I bought with a manual transmission changed my life- I never had a wreck again and it's been ten years since I started driving a manual. Something about focusing on the revs and shifting gears keeps me focused on driving. Not to mention the fact that it is more enjoyable for me to drive than an automatic. Just food for thought.
Cue the flames on how I'm a moron for not paying attention while driving and what kind of idiot american driver I am etc...
I got a ticket once for "improper use of median".
what were you doing to get the ticket, eh? improper use of the median lights up some pretty strange images in my head
You would have gotten more utility and value from your money if you had wiped your ass with a dollar bill and flushed it.
Wish I had mod points for you sir.
