Does this mean it's a bad thing that I could get my heart rate up driving an Escort?

The article seems to imply that the vehicle's capabilities are what excites, so why is the world swamped with Honda Civics that have only been modified on the outside?

Because maybe in some way they think that if somewhat those could only go as fast as they look...

Doesn't surprise me at all.

The fact that most of us in this forum are male is a hint towards that direction. Not a proof of course, but it shows something!

In a way, this would explain why most women are emotionally screwed up. They have some testosterone (proven from the fact that they like fast cars) in their system combined with estrogen which is like drinking gin with vicoden.... bad result.

Men have estrogen too.. it just generally isn't expressed with gin.

When Connery was Bond, they had to reduce his manboobs with leather bags of ice. True fact.. Michael Gambon says so.

Also.. Roger Moore.

Then my perception has been way off all this time. A true gentlemans matrini is made with made with gin straight... it's a rule to never shake also.

it's the irony of james bond. a dry vodka martini is a rather weak drink. when you shake it, the ice breaks and adds more water into the mix, thereby weakening it further. so the man we all want to be actually drinks a seriously wussy drink.
