3. Aesthetic Appeal

Top-10-Reasons-to-Get-a-Sports-Car-Aesthetic-Appeal

Another benefit to sports cars is attractive design. We all think a Lamborghini Diablo looks cool, but we almost universally feel the opposite about Pontiac’s abhorrent Aztek. Don’t believe me? Ask Greek philosopher Plato, not to be confused with Play-doh. According to Wikipedia:

“[He] believed that for us to have a perception of beauty there must be a transcendent form for beauty in which beautiful objects partake and which causes them to be beautiful also.”

We quoted someone famous, so it must be true.

    Cause vagine

  • My GF

    I sent this to my girlfriend for entertainment value… however, her response was far more entertaining:

    I think it’s funny that they
    thought the people reading this would be so intellectually devoid that they
    would confuse one of our most well-known philosophers with Play-Doh. J

    Permission to be a smartass…

    Top 10 Reasons to Get a Sports
    Car

    1.
    Light and Chuckable

    a. Very good Grug. Lighter car go fast, ugh ugh.

    2.
    Bragging Rights

    a. People will be so jealous of you. Especially the
    guy next door with a hot wife and a couple of great kids that are going to take
    care of him in his old age while you are pissing out a tube and reminiscing
    about how great you once had it.

    3.
    Aesthetic Appeal

    a. Someone famous was quoted here…there can be no logical
    argument against that…

    4.
    Sex Appeal

    a. Yeah, no one will notice your toupee blowing in the wind
    or your 20 lb gut flopping out over your pants while you try to drag your fat
    ass out of a car that’s practically sitting on the ground. Translation: I
    will believe anything if there is hot girl in the commercial.

    5.
    Symphonic Sounds

    a. My car sounds so good…yeah I’m pumping poisons into the
    air, increasing childhood occurrences of asthma, and shortening the life of our
    planet as a whole, but…my car sounds so good. Ugh ugh.

    6.
    Limited Seating

    a. If a man wants to be an island maybe he shouldn’t move to
    the city.

    7.
    Quick Acceleration

    a. Yeah…I’m that guy. You know the one that zips around in
    his car and the hugeness of his dick literally explodes out of the windshield.

    8.
    Row ‘em if You’ve
    Got ‘em

    a. Self-shifting…I’ve been doing that since I was 7.

    9.
    Technocracy

    a. Term originally used to designate the application of the
    scientific method to solving social problems, in counter distinction to the
    traditional economic, political, or philosophic approaches. I thought we
    were using Plato as our source of truth…wasn’t he a philosopher who used
    philosophical symbolism to portray much of his political ideology? Fail.

    10.
    Joie de vivre

    a. There is a whole wiki page devoted to statistics on
    motorsport driver deaths. Yes…I would say “joy of life” is the
    most accurate description that could be made here.
