I want to buy a car.

I've been searching for cars to buy. I initially wanted a Hybrid.


But I've come to one conclusion about why hybrids haven't really caught on yet.

THEY ALL LOOK RETARDED.


Hey look at me, I'm a dork!

If I wanted to advertise the fact that I'm an uber-dork, I'd go to LAN parties.

Why can't they shove a hybrid engine into the chassis of, say, a Didge Viper? Who cares if it can't do 200mph, It'd still look badass.

All of the hybrid/electrics have that fender over the rear wheels. What's up with that, seriously? Do people think that looks good?

You know - out of all the completly retarded looking hybrid vehicles I have seen, this appears to be the least-retarded.

Also - those tires seem a little less-wide than their normal counterparts. You'd think you'd need the same kind of traction, no matter how hybrid your vehicle was...

Also, you'd think that you'd have to change the tires every once in a while too...

Interesting comment. You originally struck me as a person with a bit more depth than that and not the kind who would hinge a decision like a car purchase on how it would make one appear to others.

The whole concept of basing one's personal decisions on the perceived decisions of others is utterly foreign to me, so I guess the best I could suggest would be to get something like a Hyundai Sonata, a Saturn sedan, or a Honda Accord. They're all good cars, and they're so ordinary-looking that you're pretty-much guaranteed not to have any car-based opinions rendered against you, positive or negative.

I used to be like that, but my psychologist convinced me that it's in my best interests to start caring about how others percieve me. Regardless, it's not the whole "what will other people think?!" thing that annoys me, it's the whole "I can't stand looking at that car, and it's too small for me anyways" thing too.

Two Words: Fire Your Psychologist

It doesn't matter how other perceive you. You also have no control over it. The only person's perception that you can do anything about is your own.

And, once your own perception of yourself is improved, then two things happen:

1. Other people's perceptions of you improve
2. You don't care that ther people's perceptions of you have improved

A neat-o looking car won't solve your self-esteem problem. Waking up everyday, and saying to yourself "I'm not a complete shithead" in the mirror will fix your self-esteem once you have done it enough times that you actually believe it.

Go to a church, or join some secular humanist group. You aren't interacting with enough people personally and on a personal level. Fix it.

As his psychologist, I suggest you all seek immediate psychological attention. I'd recommend myself as a good practitioner, but I think Mithrandir is excellent proof of that.

Ugh, what kind of pseudo-Kantian tommyrot are they feeding kids nowadays?

Well, if that's what your shrink recommends, far be it from me to argue. By all means go for it. Get yourself a bitchin' Viper with wheel-spinners and a kickerbox in the trunk so you can tool down the roads and gain the acceptance of others, thus validating your own existence.

Either that or recognize that a car is a four-wheeled surface conveyance thats singular purpose is to transport people and small amounts of cargo from place to place and is incapable of boosting self-esteem one whit no matter how shiny it is.
