The answer is oblivious, Mr. Dear Mr. Duff: the relationship is
inverse! You failed to include the *perversity* factor, which
must be taken into account, since the list members are so perverse
that they take on their Audis as roughly 50% transportation, 50%
So the correct formula is more like:
(HD) x (HF)
------------------- X (-1)
Hour driving X hours fixing, divided by perversity, then invert the
sign. Since adnoH drivers are often wonderful people, but many lack
perversity and drive in a boring fashion, I suggest the "P" factor
accounts for the difference.
Especially after the fourth beer. Then the "P" factor is REALLY
