Car Washing Analyzed

If you never read about cars, you’ll want to make an exception for this one. Jeremy Clarkson (whose reviews are always worth reading) was supposed to write a review of the Renault Laguna Sport Tourer Dynamique. He didn’t much like the car, so he wrote a wonderful piece about why people wash their cars. Or don’t.
What a meaningless way of passing the time. You don’t wash your vacuum cleaner or your television set, you have a machine to wash the dishes and you employ a man to clean your windows. So how much do you have to hate the sight of your wife and children before you think, “I’d rather go outside into the cold and spend a couple of hours burnishing my wheel nuts”?

I don't know anyone who hand washes their car in the cold. Even in nice weather I don't think anyone besides me decides to do it themselves instead of the quick car wash places. I do it when I need to get out of the house and do some physical labor that has a definite result I can see. That said, I haven't washed my car in 2 years.

Also, I like the random paragraph about 'homosexuals' and the gym practices. As if working out is a homosexual thing. Funny though.
