    Ahh yes, Volkswagen, the lying car company that's not worthy of our support. I didn't watch all the videos, but why Sweden?

    I think that Toyota and Mitsubishi (?) are two of the better ones. Certainly agree about Mercedes and Ford though. Without considering it too deeply there's probably only 10 or 12 car companies I would support at the moment. Not sure how many makers we have available to us in Australia at the moment, would it be 60 maybe?

    I only looked at the first one, pretty sure it's set in Berlin.

    Welcome to Orange County, California. Actually part of the southern part of the Los Angeles metro area. An opinion as to why the skate board powered trolleys will never work.

    For what ever reason we have a huge influx of Vietnamese immigrants. They were part of the ending of the Vietnam war, A.K.A boat people. Most of these good souls never learned to drive in their home country. To them, and I mean no disrespect, the difference between a family car and a sports car is one or two oxen. As things have evolved these good folks have taught their teenagers how to drive. These former teenagers are now adults with families of their own.

    When these former teenagers go shopping, they just meander with their shopping trolleys. They will be on ether side of the aisle and cut across the aisle to look at the latest and greatest product. Without a skate board assist it is difficult to avoid running into them at a normal pace pushing one's shopping trolley.

    Please don't get on my case about being racist. I'm not, as this is just an observation of how things are. I think that it will take 3 or 4 generations before they are fully integrated into our way of life. It is a severe handicap, not of their own making, to the magnitude of the change of life that they face.

    Agree with what you say, Rrich, and it applies to many nationalities and pretty well all technology. The first generation learns to do it, not very well. The 2nd generation does it. The third generation does it and understands it.
