In an effort to increase efficiency, Ford has just filed a patent for an automatic gearbox with 11 forward gears. For reference, most new cars have eight or nine. Me? I just filed a patent for a car with two hundred gears. "No you didn't." Yes, I did. "No, you drew a picture of a car on a napkin with VROOM VROOM KABOOM written above it." Pretty sweet, right? God willing, it'll find a place on the fridge as soon as my mom gets home from work.

Thanks to Victor, who drives a car with no gears like Fred Flintstone.
