I believe what you "should" be saying is that you are conditioning yourself to react defensively to people who present you with facts and logical thinking as opposed to your biased and uneducated ways of thinking.

For example: you've never designed a car nor have you been educated on how TO design one. What makes your opinion of a particular piece of body styling somehow more valid than someone who has relevant experience or someone who has been educated on automotive styling?

Sorry, I must chime in on the 5 door hatchback thing. Form following function doesn't have to be an ugly thing...






Technically this was a 5 door hatchback (although it didn't really resemble one untill you put your groceries in it...


I for one actually liked the HHR. It's mostly because I was able to pinpoint what retro car they had in mind while developing it. We had one pull in at work some time ago, a white one. It looked awesome. It was lowered, with 18's, and fog lights.

*edit* OK, so maybe the subbies are more wagon than hatchbacks but they still have 5 doors and they still look great!

Cars are designed to be aesthetically pleasing. My post said, "it's ugly". Where were your "facts" and "logic" to defend its design?

OH YEAH!!!

You had NONE.

All you could say was, "IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THAT LOLZ" <<< I guess that's the best you can do in the "fact" department, eh, little kid?

No shit it's supposed to be like that. I'm sure they didn't design it like that by accident. I said it's ugly as shit. Bottom line.

Man you are really bad at arguing. I hope you never become a lawyer.

No, It's "Ugly as shit" in YOUR opinion. Not bottom line....

The bottom line of the what I said is that it's ugly as shit, in MY opinion.

Why is that so hard to swallow for you?

Jeeze clifford, you take me the wrong way sometimes.

I'll take that as a statement that was intended as it sounded, as you didn't use any smillies that suggested you were using humour/sarcasm. I'll let it go this time, as I try not to let teenagers with a year or so's driving experience get to me...

Clifford WHAT IS UP YOUR BUTT HOLE, MAN? (don't tell me, I don't really wanna know!) I was joking, that's why I put the exclamations, and didn't even choose to respond to what you said, because I didn't think we were being serious with one another.

Stop being a woman. It's making us all look bad


EDIT: And I thought you'd know it was a joke cause I called you clifford!

In that case I appologise. You must be able to see how it looked from my point of view though. Exclaimation marks simply make you look more angry..

By the way, you didn't have to edit the word 'ass'...I wouldn't have told you off, lol

True brit was my other love but he's not man enough for me
