Were you snowed in????? As Nelson would say to Bart, "HA HA!!"

Enjoy, and Happy New Year!

(Transcribed from Car & Driver magazine, February 1996 issue, page 29)

Ten Things That Would Be Different If Microsoft Started Building Cars:

1.  A particular model year of car wouldn't be available until after that =
year instead of before it.

2.  Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you'd have to buy a =
new car.

3.  Occasionally your car would just die for no reason, and you'd have to =
restart it. For some strange reason, you'd just accept this.

4.  You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you =
bought Car 95 or Car NT. But then you'd have to buy more seats.

5.  Sun Motorsystems would make a car that was powered by the sun, twice =
as reliable, and five times as fast - but it would only run on 5 percent =
of the roads.

6.  The oil, engine, gas, and alternator warning lights would be replaced =
with a single "General Car Fault" warning light.

7.  People would get excited about the "new" features in Microsoft cars, =
forgetting completely that they had been available in other cars for =

8.  We'd all have to switch to Microsoft gas.

9.  The U.S. government would be *getting* subsidies from an automaker, =
instead of giving them.

10. New seats would force everyone to have the same-size butt.
