36 it actually originally was something farmers did back in the 40s with there trucks. First gear was extremely low like a top speed of 10 miles an hour at most. They would pull put the truck in first pull the choke and get out and walk next to the trucks in the field picking up square hay bales and loading them in the bed. It did not really have a name it's was just common practice. I only know this because I happen to have a truck that was used in this manner. Putting the history lesson aside that's an extremely stupid think to do.
The difference there 77 is that farmers had something called common sense, something a great number of people lack nowadays (so now it's uncommon sense?) anyway the other difference is that the farmers were trying to accomplish a job, not fool around and do tricks next to a car that may or may not be going in a straight line.
Sounds like he could use some common sense. Too bad they don't bottle that stuff, it would come in handy...
