OK, here is the highlight from the transcript showing once-again that there
is proof of lower intelligence on this planet:

AN EXPERT --- HUH?????? THE GUY WASHES FRIGGIN CARS!!!!!
I recall back when the dorks at 60 minutes did the episode (I worked for GM
product development back then) and we could not beleive the stupidity of it
all. Then, a couple of weeks (or months, I cannot recall) later, it all
came together. The ever-so-wise Milton Bradley ;^) did another show
involving automobiles. I seem to recall him visiting the Lamborgini works
in Bologna (borderline interesting, yet not credible) test driving a
Countach at rather high speeds on public roads (interesting, if not for the
dork driving), and then - zoom in on the numbnut driving ..... NO SEAT
SOMEBODY GIVE THIS GUY'S HEAD A SHAKE!
I get so pissed off just thinking of this dildo and his "scientific
evidence" that it seems that I am rambling, but however, the accusations,
as ridiculous as they were, were not taken lightly at GM, as we went into a
scurry gathering data and modifying pedal layouts for drivers who may have
got their drivers' licences in Cracker Jack boxes or a pack of Weetos.
