I would like to learn how to drive a stick shift just so I can have that extra ability and maybe it will help me later, but yeah. they're a little nerve-wracking.
Sticks are fun to drive. Not that I have driven that many, my truck and a jeep but that is it. i think everyone should try driving a stick at least once.
I can drive a stick shift if I must, but I would vastly prefer not to.
My brother has a totally destroyed Saturn Ion with a stick-shift... he usually drives 15 MPH over the limit, so I have bad experience with them...
I have not ventured into the stick realm yet, but I am looking forward to it with anticipation. It looks really fun, albeit difficult at the beginning. I love the idea of how much extra control you get. Automatic shifting just doesn't feel the same.
Extra control, my sainted aunt! Do you have any idea what a stick shift does when it is not in the right gear? It dies, that's what it does. It dies then and there like a frightened opossum. Do you have any idea what this is like when you are sitting at an intersection with a high-strung mother in the passenger seat? I would have to hate someone a great deal to wish learning to drive a stick shift upon them.
Okay, I can't argue with that. Also, hills. Rolling. SCARY. No risk, no reward, though.
That's the dreadful part. Still, I'll have to quote what Hans so aptly said.
I love the extra control. If you are a good stick driver, then using a stick-shift is better for the wellbeing of your vehicle, and also gets you better gas mileage.
Lol. It takes practice for sure, and I respect those who take the time to master it.
Haha, well, yesterday I was learning how to drive stick and I got stuck on a hill and there was this lady behind me, but she was very forgiving. I stalled it like 3 times before I finally got it right. But yeah, it was a lot of fun!
I drive tractors sometimes and this one time I was coming down a fairly steep hill with a full loaded trailer of fire wood and it's a stick and it popped out of gear and started rolling down the hill. i was able to stop it and put it in gear again but farther down the hill it popped again> Very interesting experience.

sftdp But school is cool. Very cool. I am nerd. But anyway, without it we we would not be where we are today. We wouldn't know as much, no one would have be sent to space, we would not have so many things.
Math is my all time favorite subject. I sometimes do it when I don’t have to, since I’m homeschooled.
I put cool whip in my coffee.
I don't really have coffee.
I just eat the cool whip.
