    Re: Automatic or manual

    I can drive stick, I simply prefer not to. Way back when I was learning to drive, close to 30 years ago, stick was the "cheap" option in vehicles, you could get a car less expensive if it was a manual than if it was an automatic. I'd just rather not have to operate any more pedals and levers than I have to when I'm driving.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I prefer stick shift. It gives you better control of the car, it's better on gas, and it's just more fun to drive. No contest.

    Same here. It does get old in traffic but I enjoy driving one. Everyone needs to try a 12 cyl sports car with a stick. Even just once. Its a rush.

    Simpler is better for me, and furthermore, I wouldn't know how to drive a stick. I get the combo answer. Thanks disability :P
