For me, even automatics feel strange. The lack of involvement and the constant need to brake in order to shift just seems unnatural. Still, there are way more complicated solutions to the problem of gear shifting out there, as car makers were pretty keen to come up with new ideas to make life easier for us in the last 120 years.
My personal favorite was the two-stroke Wartburg's as it didn't even need the clutch to work flawlessly, but that's just silly.
Which gearbox makes you scratch your head?
