Why do real men like to drive a stick? Well, I’m a real man, I love driving manual transmissions, I’m a good driver, and I find it a major turn on when girls like cars, too. I drive a standard shift because I love being in control of my car. I feel better knowing that I can do what I want with my car at any time. No matter what people say, it’s not just a control thing. And it’s also not a penis size issue, either. I have no problems with the size of my penis, and I don’t drive a manual because I want all types of control in my life. I drive a manual because it’s just plain great. It makes me feel better.
You see folks, RawJosh has a knee issue. My knees hurt a pretty good bit at times. Whenever I drive a manual, my left knee doesn’t hurt, because it’s doing something. It’s constantly being worked and exercised. But, besides that, I just feel so much more awake when I drive a manual tranny. It is very refreshing to know that you have things under control. Not in a controlling way, but in a calming way.
An automatic transmission just shows a sign of weakness in your confidence and abilities to do multiple things at once.
AskMen.com came up with a pretty good list of 10 reasons why real men drive manual transmissions. Forget all that Fast and the Furious crap about driving one, and think about how much better and safer of a driver you can be by paying more attention to your car. Learn your cars, people!
Just to give you a taste of what you’ll be reading, I pulled quite possibly the best paragraph of the whole article. This writer is great. I don’t know if I could have said this better myself. Kudos, buddy.
“Rather than admit that driving is a skill that needs to be practiced and mastered, the people who favor automatic transmissions blame their poor driving skills on everyone and everything else. “The tree jumped out into the middle of the road!” they will exclaim, quickly followed by a cry of, “There was no way to avoid it!” Of course, these drivers will be sure to omit the fact that they were texting, checking their lip gloss, and/or trying to master the use of the sippy cup holding their double tall nonfat chai latte.”
Oh, and one last thing, the coolest cars of all time don’t come in automatics… Just like the picture above.
