colorful papers with question marks on them
Industry Insights

While we like to think Naked Lime is the source of all important information about the automotive industry, we can still mourn the end of an era. Started 16 years ago, Yahoo Answers has been an internet favorite for Q&A about all things mundane, philosophical – and quite often – bizarre.

Before the site is officially laid to rest on May 4th, we wanted to take a walk down memory lane and look at some of our favorite Yahoo Answers posts related to the automotive and marketing industries.

4. This sea creature wannabe:


Is it OK to drive a car into the water if it's on fire? Let's say I was driving on a road and suddenly i saw smoke and flames coming from under the hood. Would it be OK to drive the car into a pond or a lake to put the fire out? (I'm assuming that water damage is cheaper to fix than fire damage) (yes i know not to drive the car into salt water.
