I'm a dude. Make it in some other color and sign me up. Coming up on a traffic jam? Just swivel and go back! Ice on the front of the car windshield but not the back? Swivel and drive! Waiting in line a the drive through? Swivel and get in to a stare down with guy behind you.
 
2013-11-19 01:17:54 PM
Why don't they make one that doesn't go over 40 mph for men? All the high speed fatal accidents are men.

FTR I haven't hit anything in 20 years and I'm female.

I'm guessing they haven't done a whole lot of R&D on the mechanics of a rotating passenger compartment.  But the drive through staring contests warrant further investigation.

I'm a woman and I think it's funny. If I drove that car I'd never have to lock it because I guarantee nobody would be caught dead stealing it.
 
2013-11-19 01:21:43 PM
Must be a fully automated car then.

Wonder why I haven't heard any outrage over that "This website makes it easy for women to buy a car without getting screwed over by the salesman" commercial. Not saying their should be, I just figured the man-hate-brigade would have latched on to that one by now.

No, it wasn't. It got into the Metro as an article and the ninnies at the "Everyday Sexism" project popped up to protest it. Controversy is just a funny way to spell free advertising.
 
2013-11-19 01:22:56 PM
Ah, stereotypes. Women can't drive, men are incompetant parents, albinos are evil, Asians are good at math, clowns are rapists, dead Austrians smell like birthday cake....

Even if you swivel around and face backwards, you're still steering with the front wheels. If you think she can't park now, wait until she tries this car!

Obligatory.  My favorite one starts at about 0:45.  Woman can't for the life of her back into a parking space, back and forth back and forth, guy waiting behind her gets fed up, walks up to her window and they trade places, he parks in about two seconds.

Yeah, when your front wheel comes off at "Holy moose!" MPH, it's hard to steer.   :  )

Always my favorite game in an elevator.  As it fills up and the door closes and you are at the panel, you just turn around and face the rear of the car and see the fear.

What, like a '96 Ford Aspire? I'm pretty sure if you were driving that you'd be likely to remain woman-free.

Who would've thought changing car to cat would make the internet that much more funny.  When I'm not lazy, will have to go hunt down that extension where I can add my own words to swap out.

My first time viewing that commercial: why are there only girls? Oh wow. They're actually doing this.

At least it's not like adt and having only white burglars I guess

Nine out of ten mornings I see some form of this, now dont get me wrong these women are very talented because otherwise there would be much more accidents, but still the subtle sways in their lanes and brake slamming scare the hell out of me,

Most women look just fine without the makeup, would rather be alive then admire the long eyelashes or glossy lips

Stupid, but funny...however, I liked the link to another story about an insect recently discovered in South America they've nicknamed "troll doll bug"...weird looking. Yes it looks like a troll doll :O

Because casual endemic sexism is teh funnay, just like other forms of casual endemic bigotry! Sheesh, you'd think chicks could take a joke, right?

I live in the Puget Sound area. I see guys swerving and panic-braking all the time because they're playing with their friggin' phones or tablets & laptops (yes, tablets and laptops, on the passenger seat) instead of paying attention to the road.

That doesn't lead me to say, "wow, guys can't drive." It does lead me to say, "wow, that asshole can't drive."

Nice Freudian.

phones and tablet are equal opportunity i will agree, makeup staring in mirrors while driving is not

I suppose you could design a car to "know" when you swivel around and change which set of wheels the car uses for steering accordingly.
