Myspace was superior in every aspect. You could customize the page because it allowed html code. You could be friends with anyone you wanted, and there was no poking. It had integrated blogging.

I have no idea how Facebook overtook it considering it was late to the game, sucks, and sells your info. Clearly I'm bad at understanding human behavior considering my surprise at the outcome.

Actually it wouldn't surprise me to see more hybrids becoming available as rentals.

I've tried some of the "sporty" offerings like the Dodge Charger and was very unimpressed. There is no reason to offer a low performance version of higher performance cars when they inherit the drawbacks of performance cars such as limited cargo volume, limited amenities, and relatively poor fuel economy.
That might be hard to explain, but it pleases the Europeans and other folks who don't have too many American gas-guzzler options available in their home countries.

What are your preferences for a rental car?
Usually the cheapest one, even though sometimes I might regret not picking one with an automatic transmission.
