Cars Culture

Recently having had the experience of sitting through the latest edition of the Fast & Furious franchise with a roomful of children between the ages of five and nine, I was intrigued as to why this high-revving explosion-fest appealed to them.

But the Onion recently came up with this revelation. The success of the movie with our kids is of course based on that fact that the screenwriter has complete empathy with his audience.
