I actually had to stop talking about my Z at home. Everyone was getting annoyed with me constantly talking about it. None of my roommates, neighbors, or friends (except one or two) know much of anything about cars. It's sad, really. It's funny though when they try to argue with my about car related stuff and I'm sitting there like, "Why are you arguing with me? I know like a thousand times more than you about cars, and you're trying to tell ME about cars?"
The funniest thing, though, is this guy I work with. He's in his 50's, I think, and has been working on cars for a really long time, but is a friggin idiot. First, and most disturbingly, he constantly goes on about these POS Citroens (which he's constantly breaking and fixing and then breaking again) that he has and how Citroen, Peugeot, and Renault are the best cars ever made, and how there is all this stuff about them that no other car has, when in actuality, a lot of cars have and have had for a long time.
Example...yesterday he comes up to me and shows me this Citroen brochure and says, "This is the only production car with a hard top convertible." I was like, "What the f*ck, man, there have been hardtop convertibles since the 30's," (that's true, btw, I looked it up), "and maybe since 1929."
Another Example...he started arguing with me about what the definition of under/oversteer is. After like an hour, I finally pulled it up on the internet and found like 30 definitions that stated, verbatim, what I said and none that said what he said.
What a maroon.
Umm...I think I got off topic a little, but I thought you all might get a chuckle out of that.
