Just read this morning that the new James Bond, Daniel Craig, is
having driving lessons. He was unable to drive the company Aston Martin as it
is a manual gearchange (stickshift for those across the pond).

He could only drive automatics. Lucky his Walther PPK is automatic.

No wonder there is no British Empire left.

Well, he is only an actor, isn't he?

He was really worth watching in Munich, so I'll give him his dues as an actor. Still, I don't think he's got the beauty and charm to be Bond. We'll see if his acting is good enough to change my thoughts on that account, though.

I just learned to drive stick.

Why isn't Pierce going to be Bond again?

It was a 'tongue-in-cheek' posting, pucko.

Amen.

(Pierce is a hottie though, so I forgive him his lack of being Sean.)

Doesn't Bond use a Walther P99 now?

Actually...I can drive a manual transmission car without any problem...as long as I am sitting on the left side of the car. I am not sure if I could do it with me sitting on the right...might take a little getting used to. :?
