How Cars Work
For many millenia, the common men (and all women) have wondered how cars work. Only enthusiasts, mechanics and dealerships know how cars really work. There are three things essential to cars: the engine, the transmission and the tires (Only on current cars). These three things will be explained now.
(Warning: contains excessive use of the words "hamster" and "flux capacitor", which may cause a headache or SEHS.)
Contrary to popular belief, cars are not powered by an engine. They are in fact run by a Flux Capacitor controlled by hamsters. Previously, the cars had been run by gerbils. However, the Great San Francisco Gerbil Shortage of 1977, which caused great uproar among certain demographic groups, caused the car manufacturers to switch to hamsters and sell their gerbils in dungeons for a large profit.
The transmission is pretty self explanatory. It sends power from the flux capacitor to the wheels. It uses a complex system of milk tanks, copper wire, and a stick of celery to turn the flux energy into movement. As no one on the internet has ever worked with a car, I don't know exactly how that happens.
In an automatic, part of the flux capacitor's power is used to shift, shifting being a term that's meaning is unknown. All normal people drive automatics.
The tires are designed to stick to the road. As such, they are usually made from girlfriends, the clingiest substance known to men. As such, they have an amazing ability to stick to the road. The more pure the girlfriends, the more clingy they are, and thus tires made from 100% extra non-virgin girlfriends are usually used in faster cars.
In the future, cars will not have wheels, so tires will be completely useless. As such, the future has a higher number of girlfriends, and as such, even nerds will have a girlfriend or three. Not much else is known mechanically other than future cars have cat-toast devices at all four corners. The engines will not change, but the transmission will, although it is not known how. If you have been to the future and know the answer, please edit this article.
