Salesman: It is! Nearly four inches longer in some models.

Woman (sitting behind the wheel): Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

-- from Adam Curtis' documentary, “Century of Self,” about the 20th-century attempt, by government and business, to control or manipulate the irrational impulses in human beings that Sigmund Freud discovered and/or emphasized in his work.
