What the hell did I just watch?

Was it a plug for the hybrid industry, car batteries, cadmium manufacturers, Canada, or the new Whose Line?

What about  Stephen Fry, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie ???

Stephen Fry wasn't on Who's Line.  Probably thinking of Greg Proops.

Seemed more like anti-hybrid agit-prop.

The most obvious clue was that most hybrid car batteries get recycled; they don't typically end up in landfills.  And certainly not after a mere 100,000 miles.

The British show had Ryan and Colin as mainstays and a rotating cast for the other two (too many list, most of them Brit comedians who frequent other quiz/talk shows like QI and WILTY)...this included Wayne Brady, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Chip Esten.

The US show had Ryan, Colin and Wayne as mainstays and a much smaller rotating cast of American comics in the fourth slot, almost always either Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood or Chip Esten. But occasionally they had some high profile guest like Robin Williams and Stephen Colbert (well, before he was Col-bear).

Fry was on the Brit version of Whose Line once. He was not good. But he was Fry so that's okay with me.

The take away from all of this?

1. It's really stupid to ship shiat all over the world just to put it together and ship it right back.

2. We need a better battery system, whether they get recycled or not, they are still manufactured with, and contain, some very Earth-unfriendly parts.

And something not covered in this video:
3. If they want us to adopt this technology, they need to make it farking cheaper. In the next few years, we're buying my wife a new car(And actually buying "new".). A hybrid or electric would be great, but it's going to be hard enough to come up with the scratch for a regularly priced car, let alone the extra money these end up costing.

Seemed like more like anti-car agitprop... Prius batteries don't use Cadmium either, and everything about the supply chain and getting shipped around applies to a Canyonero SUV as well.

Maybe the guy is from The Half Hour News Hour?

/ suspects it's just a blatant attempt to get a viral video given the sales pitch underneath. Was the Plug tag on break?

Stephen Fry was on all 6 British radio episodes, plus two episodes of the first season of the British and one in the ninth season (of 10 total) plus a comic relief appearance.  Never done anything in America.

Don't know Brad Sherwood?  You're just a Whose Line poseur.

He first appeared in Season 4 of the British version on two episodes during the run in NYC, and then had TEN appearances on the final two season of that version.

He then appeared in 56 (that's right, FIFTY SIX) episodes of the American version, only one episode shy of Greg Proops who you do seem to know somehow.

He was then in ALL the Green Screen shows.

He then appeared in 17 out of 40 episodes of Improv-A-Ganza

He then appeared on 2 episodes of Trust Us With Your Life.

He's also been doing a live improv show with Colin Mochrie for quite a while now, I saw them last year and they were farkin hilarious.

Aren't the Prius batteries lithium and not cadmium?

Any Pie Left: Aren't the Prius batteries lithium and not cadmium?


Yes. Plus recycled. NiCad went away years ago because of cycle and memory issues.
 
2013-07-09 07:54:31 PM
So I take that if you buy a non-hybrid car it's made entirely with Earth-friendly materials, using totally locally sourced parts?  Sure, there are energy and material costs associated with manufacturing cars, but it's not like a car with an internal combustion engine is going to have a significantly lower environmental impact due to manufacturing.  And, as others have mentioned, car batteries are recycled not dumped in landfills.
 
2013-07-09 08:15:26 PM
Is he seriously making money by selling fake childrens stories now?  What happened to that guy? *sad*

Also I read that only half our oil comes from foreign countries, the other half is from canada and alaska.  Forget the hybrids, just give me an efficient diesel that gets the same gas mileage, maybe some regenerative braking too.

Especially since they are made of expensive metals.  I would expect thieves to steal them out of junked cars before they would end up in landfills.

A diesel engine would really benefit from load leveling.  And electric drive trains are already common in a lot of diesel-fueled vehicles.

Yeah they did, like 40 or so years ago. Guess we're going to have to wait 40 more years by your logic. Thanks for clearing that timeline up for us.

No, they're neither lithium-ion nor NiCad.

They're NiMH.  Except for the Prius Plug-In, which does use Li-Ion.

1. It's not stupid. It's cheaper.
2. Ah, the royal we. Yes, I'm sure nobody is working on building better, cheaper, less hazardous batteries. This is obviously not a multi-billion dollar field of research.
3. See point 2.
4. Was point four pointing out how much cheaper and convenient it is to use the family horse before you're sold on horseless carriages?

Huh, don't think I've seen any of the episodes with him in them, could have sworn I had seen them all, at least twice through, but then again, I've only seen the British ones that were aired in the US for years, so no idea if they left some off.

So you're going with the douchebag approach. Good, it's been awhile...

All of my points are valid, I never said nobody was working on this shiat, but as it stands, it needs to be fixed.

And no, people aren't gonna break their necks to spend $5K and up on top of the standard car price just to have the hybrid option.

And your horseless carriage analogy is about as stupid as they come. This isn't an innovation like the car was, it's just a different kind of car.

Nice try, I guess.

Your state or location may offer other incentives that the extra money, well under $5,000 and up, would make it worth while.  Better parking, HOV lane use, tax breaks.  Hybrids are much cheaper.

If you are into leasing, the base model Nissan Leaf can be had for $199/month.  Most other plug-in hybrids in the compact range are leasing for under $300/month now as well.

If you look at just numbers, I don't know know, maybe it won't work out perfectly for you.  Personally I don't mind spending more for a car that only digs its really nasty stuff out the earth once, rather than need to be fed it daily.  Sure power may come from natural gas now, but it will be a hell of lot easier for an electric car/plug in hybrid to switch over to greener or cleaner energy than a plain petrol engine. I also see it more as investment not only in myself, but in my kid's future as well.

Lastly, look used with low miles.  We looked for a year and came up with a great deal on an RX400H.  Sure its not a 50MPG sipper, but it is a hell of a sight better than the 17MPG Jeep it replaced in so many ways.

Maybe that's why I never saw him on the radio or in two episodes of the British shows.
I repeat "Who is that" loudly.  Also he ain't very funny.
