A Very Special Mad Men Teaches The Importance Of Stick Shift Driving

The season finale of Mad Men was as arresting and dramatic as we'd all hope: there was a scene with a '69 Camaro Z28 and the importance of driving stick, and a bunch of other stuff that was kind of a blur. Minor spoiler alert.

The real take-away from the episode was the overwhelming importance of knowing how to drive a "standard" transmission. Without that valuable, increasingly arcane knowledge, you can humiliate yourself, knock over signage, and, worst of all, miss out on a rare opportunity to drive indoors.
