having a stick shift makes your ***** bigger, it's a fact. i have before and after pics if anyone is interested. it may just look like one pic is flaccid and one is a picture of a boner, but i insist that that's not the case...

thats about what it took me, I didnt have a manual daily driver, my dad taught me when he bought his civic, actually it was probably longer, but around 3 weeks i'd guess, worked out well though, because even when I was test driving my car (of course I had to get a 5 speed ) I had no trouble at all, plus dad's civic is an LX and the EX's clutch is more smooth and shifting seems easier..

"Which pedal is gas?"
"The right pedal."
"Brake?"
"Middle."
"Thats too many pedals."

"Thats correct."

wow... i've gotten every single one of those... i taught a lot of my buddies how to drive stick...

one of the best ones ya get when you're teaching someone goes a little something like this...

me: "good... now we're rolling... good job!"
*we begin to roll faster... rpm's higher..."
them: "yay!!!"
me: "ok now remember when we talked about shifting?"
them: "shifting?"
*rpm's still higher"
me: "remember... gas off, clutch in, shift..."
them: "there's more to this than just starting?"
me: "yes... gears..."
*rev limiter hit..."
them: "what's that noise?!?!?"
me: "just stop the car and we'll start from the beginning"
*they stop the car successfully, then let up off of the clutch... car jumps and dies*
me: *groan*

Took me maybe a week. I still jerk the car sometimes, but never stall anymore. I've only stalled maybe twice with my car. It's not easy to stall a 7th gen, or at least thats what i think. As for stupid questions, someone once asked me why i needed two brake pedals, i was like WTF!? Haha.

took me about 2.5 months to learn to drive stick, but i wasnt very god at it first and it has to learn on a POS 4-speed 91 civic hatch. its been almost 2 years now and im perfect at it almost. i dont think i have stalled at all since i got my ACT clutch which has been probally a good 8 months ago. i dont even remember the last time i stalled.

Just when I reach a point in life when I ask myself if society can sink any lower or become any dumber, someone manages to always make me say yes...and so the pit deepens.
