Yo Rodolfo?! How've the days treated you over the last 384 days?!

Thank God you got a wife! In fact, we'd all do little or not driving at all if all cars came factory-equipped with backseat steering wheel, backseat pedals and back seat shift lever each for every seat in the back. Seriously, I don't think any of the nagging passengers of a 46-(back)seat passenger bus such as a Scania would successfully get anywhere inside it--not during rush time. Now if fully crowded, 500-seat passenger jet airplanes had backseat pilots ... all of whom eager to have dibs at the control yoke, you might guess how wobbly and bumpy the ride might get.

I rest my case.
