smart kid. unless you're on the way to work, church, a job interview or other event where showing up wet is bad idea.

i still jump in a puddle on occasion.

Lincoln's Synchromesh Address
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new transmission design, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all gears can be engaged easily – the Synchromesh.

Now we are engaged in a great automotive design revolution, testing whether manual shifting, or any driver inputs, can long endure against the forces of autonomous driving. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of our engineering manpower for manual transmission shift systems as a final resting place for the idea of drivers being engaged in the operation of their motor vehicles that this rewarding and pleasurable activity might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow these engineering facilities. The brave women and men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated the automobile, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the new generation of engineers, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who toiled here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored past engineers we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these former employees shall not have worked in vain—that FCA vehicles, under God, shall have a new birth of driving involvement—and that synchromesh transmissions designed of the people, by the people, for the people to manually shift, shall not perish from the earth.
