The Stealth Hippopotamus: Theaetetus: Journalists circling the wagons?

I don't see why Popular Mechanics wouldn't throw the New York Times under the bus? Popular Mechanics should be the publication that you turn to for stuff like this not the New York Times. If I was publishing PM you can bet I would mention that a few times in the article.

If Popular Mechanics is so dependable, what is this "Telsa" car they refer to several times?

This Popular Mechanics article is trying to whitewash NY Times' smear campaign.

John Broder: Tesla is crap
Elon Musk: You're lying, I can prove it.
John Broder: Oh yeah? Where's the proof?
Elon Musk: I've logged your test. It shows you're lying.
John Broder: *ghasp* (hides)
Margaret Sullivan: Hey, John Broder didn't actually lied...  He just...  He...  Hey, look over there! Chewbacca!
Steve Rousseau: Yes, it's Chewbacca.  It doesn't make sense.  Therefore, there is no clear winner.  Let's just forget everything.  These aren't the logs you are looking for...  And nevermind CNN did the same test and demonstrated Broder was full of shiat.  Hey, Squirrel!

TanSau: Who the fark still reads Popular Mechanics (or Science) anymore?

People who are waiting for a haircut at the "barber" (not at a "hair salon"), but aren't interested in Field and Stream (even to just flip to the end and read the Pat McManus column) and all the Sports Illustrateds are being read, even the Swimsuit Issue with the sticky cover and missing pages.

I look forward to the time (in the next 12 months or so) when interstate 5 gets its full implementation of level III (fast) chargers. I'll do a *one day* road-trip from Seattle to San Francisco (800 miles) and I'm sure I'll keep hearing from farkers that it's impossible for an affordable electric car to be used for road trips.

I'm sure the goal posts will be moved to say "Well, electric cars can't tow a boat on the way to the Yukon, so they're worthless for anything but 2% of drivers."

cowtipn: Is this the FINAL final word?

No, the final world.  There are no more.  Enjoy this one.  We cannot have another.
