gaspode: Latest attempt by the entrenched industry to try to kill electric cars eh? Its like being back in the 70s or something.. ludicrous scare stories about rivals. Hell it is like being back in Edison's day. Wankers.


Still waiting for the CEO of one of the big car companies to use a Tesla battery to electrocute an elephant.

in a world where electric cars are becoming increasingly common ...

zombie reagan: mr. obama, how many EV motorists have to perish in puddles before you stop this insanity?

b. hussein ponders

lil girl: mommy, why did the dinosaurs die?

mom: they died for us, sweetie. they died to provide us fuel. jesus himself rode them directly into a meteor. for our sins.

LG: why doesn't mr. hussein want us to use our god-given fuel?

M: well, he's a muslim. they want all of the fuel. also he is kenyan, they don't use gasoline. it's a cultural thing.

LG: what will we do when there is no more dinosaur fuel?

M: there's no way to know for sure. barack may redistribute it to his muslim saudi arabian syrian pakistan friends.

LG: and then?

M: i assume we will all be forced to drive electric vehicles. in constant fear of puddles. constantly uncertain about the future.

LG: i don't wanna die in an electric car in a puddle.

M: For now, the government is shut down. With any hope we'll wake up to the end of the obama's reign of terror. Imagine it was all a dream.

LG: sigh, gnite mom

M: sweet dreams

If it's this kind of elephant, I think most Americans by now would enjoy seeing it.

I saw a vehicle fire once. It was a pickup truck. I wonder if all pickup trucks are unsafe.

If by "puddle" you mean "large metallic object" and by "drives through" you mean "collided with" then this headline is...

... still not in any way accurate.

AngryDragon: Can someone explain to me why the Tesla has such rabid followers and the Volt and Leaf are such political hot potatoes?


Because the Tesla looks like sex and the Volt looks like subby's mom's snatch after a gangbang.

The Leaf because it's tiny and can't go very far.

treebeardmcgee: Another example of why we need to forget electric cars and stick with internal combustion engines.  Cars that run on gas never catch on fire.


This guy gets it. This is the message.
Also climate change and ocean acidification are mean old enviro-hippie liberal fibs!
Vroooom! I'm a man!

CasperImproved: Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: diaphoresis: Because People in power are Stupid: I saw a vehicle fire once. It was a pickup truck. I wonder if all pickup trucks are unsafe.

yes. Motorcycles are by far the safest.

So the elderly should all ride Harleys.

Aren't there a bunch of old hippy types with beards, balding, and with either half helmets or bandannas on their head out there on Harleys now?


We are riding Kawasakis or Suzukis. We can't afford Harleys.

Nah.. just take the limiter off their mobility scooter. It would be entertaining and you could earn bonus points for knocking them into ditches.

Wait a minute, wait a minute. What have we here, gentlemen? General Motors have themselves a journalist.

I saved that photo because the text at the bottom makes it seem as if Fox bought themselves a black person. That amuses me for any number of reasons.


You have fun with that, sparky.

"Tesla's Shares on Fire, Now the Car, Too."

Yeah, but "Car hits large object, catches fire" isn't really a newsworthy headline.
