    I wonder if it ever stops shifting while you drive?
    And of the 11, how many are an overdrive gear?

    I've flown airplanes with Pilot Relief Tubes, basically a small funnel and a tube to a pipe out of the bottom of the airplane.

    I'll put the idea in the suggestion box.

    Make sure you put in a suggestion for yellow paint while you're at it.

    All fluid lines in airplanes are either color coded or labeled.
    Interestingly enough, the relief tubes were usually yellow.

    Additional note, these were actually installed because the flight crew would pee on the bottom of the entrance or cargo door and the pressurization would pull it out....
    Except that urine is corrosive to aluminum and would cause extensive damage over time.
