Honda's Sweet Hot Wheels car!

Check it out- It looks FAST. If they even thought of making a full-scale working prototype, the deafening roar of that engine next to your ears would be incredible.

Want to Remember Everything You'll Ever Learn? Surrender to This Algorithm

That's right folks-high gas prices = no drive to Old Navy to buy silk boxers or fuzzy sweaters = a mild economic recession.
