Title: The sound of your car’s engine might just be a lie

Arguably, one of the best parts about driving a car is putting your foot on the gas and hearing that engine purr ever so sweetly. Well, that rumble may be gone forever — or at least replaced with a shallow, mechanical one.

That’s right, if you’ve bought a car within the last few years, chances are you’re not actually hearing your engine growl, but instead a recording of it.

The Washington Post broke the secret earlier this week, reporting that the noise coming from under the hood of some of your favorite cars, such as the Ford Mustang or Volkswagen Beetle, is not the actual engine but a synthetic recording of what it’s supposed to sound like.

Auto manufacturers including BMW, Volkswagen, Toyota, Porsche and Ford are all in on the deception, working hard to make sure the synthesized versions truly sound like the old car engines. Ford even polled their consumers on which sounds to implement, the Post reported:

Funny how progressive Useful Idiots get all twitterpated when asked who's going to pay for that infrastructure.

PBS got any recordings of those Volk's gurgling noises?

"The automobiles have a top speed of one hundred kilometers per hour — a kilometer is, if I recall my paleolinguistics, three-fifths of a mile — and the speedometers are all rigged accordingly so the drivers will think they're going two hundred and fifty." --The Marching Morons, C. M. Kornbluth

"The biggest mistake that libertarians make is the way they view government and private sectors. Government is the root of all evil, and the private sector is the source of all good. Libertarians have never figured out that people are the same whether in the government or in the private sector." --Paul Craig Roberts

The roads should be paid for by the gas tax. Same as bridges etc.

The Dilemma

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul
Americans who have no experience with, or knowledge of, tyranny believe that only terrorists will experience the unchecked power of the state. They will believe this until it happens to them, or their children, or their friends.
Paul Craig Roberts
