is this loss
<@Romosome> it should just say "sad boomer on board"
<@Romosome> probably gen x
<@Romosome> the word millenial is useless now
<@Romosome> they're calling kids born 20 years after the millenium "millenials"
<@Friday> it's weird to me how elitist manual drivers are
* Yoji steals the jeep and slashes the tires
<@Friday> like imagine being elitist about automatic sliding glass doors
<@Friday> BACK IN MY DAY, WE HAD TO OPEN GLASS DOORS WITH OUR HANDS
<@Friday> thats literally what a manual transmission is
<@Romosome> Friday it's how you justify inferiority
<Sede> a millenia is a long time
<@Romosome> I know this because I drove manual
<@Romosome> so when you have to deal with that stupid shifting bullshit all the time
<@Romosome> and stuff like every so often your car just stalling out
<@Romosome> you comfort yourself
<@Romosome> by saying stuff like "this makes me cooler than other people"
<@Romosome> "they CAN'T HANDLE IT"
<+Mazian> Seriously. I own one right now in a city full of hills and traffic, and it will be my last.
<@Friday> It gets better gas milage, right?
<@Friday> Like that at least is one thing
<@Romosome> Only if you drive it properly.
<+Mazian> These days, not really.
<@Romosome> And yeah most automatics are probably better at mileage control than we are.
<@Romosome> So it might get slightly better mileage if you drive very carefully and go super slow
<Sede> if you're a pro street racer is only really when that factors in
<+Mazian> Modern automatics have gotten a LOT better. You can only eke out a tiny improvement in mileage if you're a pro driver that shifts exactly at the optimum point all the time.
<@Romosome> and do a bunch of stuff that will get you better mileage in an automatic anyway
<@Romosome> yeah what maz said
<@Friday> ah ok
<@Romosome> but yeah it's just sour grapes
<@Romosome> "I'm too good for automatic"
<@Friday> imagine being proud you still used VHS
<@Friday> MILLENIALS CANT OPERATE MY VCR
<@Romosome> I mean, vinyl.
<Sede> additional distractions while controlling a motor vehicle is better!
<@Romosome> oh you mean like technical skill
<@Romosome> bitch I'm so hardcore I'm still on dialup
<@Romosome> all you soft fuckers with your fast download speeds
<@Romosome> enjoy being cucked by verizon
<@Friday> DONT EVEN USE THE INTERNET
<@Friday> I EAT WHOLE, UNSLICED BREAD
<@Romosome> Friday just yells so loud it shows up on IRC
