Lol, it sure is....

around where i live the only people that know how to drive manuals are either posers who can't really drive them but pretend like they can, elitists that think they're better then everyone else (yet still can't drive them properly), people that come from other countries where automatics were a rarity, or people like me who just prefer more then pressing the gas and the brakes (which are very few).

But i think people are just too intimidated by the shifter and the clutch pedal. I forced myself to learn by buying a manual tranny car when i didn't really know how to drive stick and i picked up on it rather quick. It's really pretty simple once you get the basics and don't freak out WHEN you stall the car. Lol...notice i said "when" and not "if"
