Must-Read: What to Know About Cars
I know shit about two things: Dogs and cars. You could say, “oh, I have a St. Bernard,” and I wouldn’t know if it was an enormous couch-destroying, pants-drooling breed or one that can fit inside of a purse. And with cars, you could come pick me up and say, “I’m in the blue Nissan,” and I will walk into whatever blue car is closest to me. Don’t even get me started on what goes on in the insides of cars. I know where the gas goes and how to drive it to the shop. That’s about it.
Which is why I’m in luck today! The dudes at AskMen.com have put together a list of 10 things that every man must know about cars. While I’m sure most of you guys (since, you know, you’re guys) already know all about this, the article is a verifiable potpourri of knowledge I didn’t have. For instance:
No.6 Maintain your balance
“This sounds overly simple, but make sure you keep your tires balanced and keep the ride smooth. Nothing scares a passenger — female or otherwise — like a car that shakes and seems able to slip out of control.”
Which means it’s probably about time to get that sound checked out. In any case, worth a click-thru if you’re as bad with cars as myself.
