    Limeys a cunt, regardless of what he drives

    I've been super productive, just changed over all the utilities AND unsubscribed from 1000 emails clogging up my account!

    Gonna go do next doors garden now so it can stop nagging at the back of my mind. Then go and do MY gardens.

    You just don't fit into this age of neutered masculinity where boys are no longer allowed their toys.

    I can't boast a Mercedes, but I'm pretty proud of my 2017 Accord Sport, enough so I get a smile every time I pass a hipster mustachioed man-bun with accompanying angry potato in their Yaris. I may have problems, but at least I'm not THAT guy.

    @Sinny called it rightly. The vehicles didn't change you. Litmus test, not transmogrifier.
    People think they understand their own mortality, even when that understanding has just changed.

    I personally don't have that adrenaline-seeking trait that values speed and performance, but I have to admit it's fun to be exposed to it. I'm part of the bus-wanker, pedestrian tribe, and use a car club for work when I need a vehicle. I get to drive different types of cars because of it, but they are mostly hybrid/fuel-efficient vehicles. So it's a treat when I get to find out what it's like to be the fastest cunt on the road.

    It's weird what kinds of things we don't mind spending our hard-earned money on that aren't really necessary. I could never spend a relative ton of money on a vehicle, yet I'll happily throw money at a room/holiday let with a stunning view when traveling.

    And others, like Sinny, have babies

    I didn't know these things existed, that sounds convenient.

    I never had the slightest urge to even learn to drive. Must be something hard-wired into us.

    It's brilliant, they are scattered throughout the city (and country really) - they have their own dedicated parking bays. You use an app to book and unlock the car. You can rent it for 30 mins, a few hours, a couple of days. And they have a variety of different models.

    Not learning to drive is quite commonplace in the UK. Is it similar in Argentina or Chile? Or are you the outlier?

    I didn't know it was commonplace anywhere. My social circle has always been a bunch of commies and struggling artists who couldn't afford a car if they wanted one, so I'm not the best person to ask. xD
