That video was the win, i was quoting the same thing at work today. If you can't stop your car, your a douchetard. You should end yourself so your worthless life of stupidity that started off with you licking the windows on the short bus doesn't hurt other peoples.

it is true that i frequently rent them for the additional $5/day (on top of 15/day ooh) when I travel, but you know what? the more I drove them, the more I hated them. sure, they have great low speed torque and get phenomenal gas mileage (perfect rental), but they SUCK MY SHAVED NUTS in terms of driver enjoyment.

So... since last time I was in CA we had a few different rental cars (long story), the first was a prius but the rest were kia rios (no power locks wut?) and they were slow but mor enjoyable to drive than a prius.

but whatever, i'm a car guy. gas mileage is great, but it's not the only variable.

also, in 2004, after learning bush was a criminal, why wouldn't you rock a kerry sticker?

You haven't lived until you've activated the second half of the stability management in a Prius. You aren't a man until it's beeping at you during an on-ramp.

Can't drive them in the snow either, as the stability management won't let you rock back and forth.
Unrelated to the snow thing:
