So we're riding back in this girl's bright yellow VW bug... and the following conversation ensues:<br />
<br />
Him: "Man these cars are aerodynamic!"<br />
Me: "...They're not really that aerodynamic..."<br />
Him: "Yes they are, they're round like raindrops, which are aerodynamic."<br />
Me: "Rain drops are neither round nor aerodynamic. They're flat on the bottom."<br />
Him + Girl: "No, they're round."<br />
Me: "I've seen slow motion video of raindrops in motion and I assure you they're NOT round..."<br />
Him: "No, they're round, and a sphere is the most aerodynamic thing."<br />
Me: "If spheres were most aerodynamic you'd see big round jets going around the skies. Saying a raindrop is aerodynamic is like saying a parachute is aerodynamic because it takes the shape it does when it encounters air resistance, and there are tons of care more aerodynamic than a bug, which is basically flat on the front."<br />
Him: "I bet it's more aerodynamic than your camaro."<br />
Me: "Right..."<br />
<br />
*5 minutes later* (We saw this bus with a funky paintjob that was basically a huge rectangular prism)<br />
Him: "Look at that thing."<br />
Me: "Yeah, it's so aerodynamic."<br />
Him: *dirty look*<br />
<br />
LOL... That goes in my top 5 dumbest conversations of all time.

My dad had a Beetle Turbo for a while. Now he's got a GTI. The GTi is much more masculine...

</div>Well about the only positive thing I can pull from that statement is, at least they aren't engineers.

</div>LOL A sphere is about one of the least aerodynamic shapes.<br />
<br />
I think it could be very possible that this guy was confusing aerodynamic with either round or smooth... <img src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thinking" class="inlineimg" />

<br />
Ok, ok, I'll give them this: they're not majoring in engineering, thank god...

</div>Hey... hey... there are a lot of geniuses here and I know three people with nearly photographic memories...<br />
<br />
Granted, he's not <i>that</i> stupid... but that was one of his dumber moments. I'm having trouble beleiving he really thinks that... he could've just been trying to irritate me, but I really think he was being serious.

Ugh, those new VW beetles are ugly.. I even would prefer the old ones from right after the 2nd world war.<br />

A Camaro would leave it to bite the dust anyway <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

</div>That's right baby <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />.<br />
<br />
I think it really frustrates people when they think they get better gas milage than me... Then I inform them that I get 28-30 MPG highway and all of a sudden their car's sole advantage is toast... and mine also takes off faster, looks cooler, is more reliable, and cost me less than $6500 with only 57,000 miles. lol... poor honda people.
