SPOTLIGHT - CVT

1920 × 1080

The way that technology has affected our lives is something we would have never predicted a hundred, fifty or even ten years ago. It’s something that has fully consumed us. Western civilization has fully endorsed the idea that technology is going to warp and form how we spend our daily lives. Some of this obsession with technology, the allowance of it into every aspect of our lives, is for the better, while parts of it have some negative aspects in our lives. But when it comes to the car industry, it’s all for the better.

The top 5 best Pokemon to take on a road trip.

Last week we gave you our list of the Top 5 Worst Pokemon to take a road trip with. In it, we described some of the worst road trip situations imaginable. We left a few Pokemon off the list, some of which would clearly make worse passengers, but those I left are typically Pokemon that just look super dangerous.

Could you imagine fitting one of these guys in your…
