MaudlinMutantMollusk: Oh, thank God it's not just me/is there some kind of test you have to pass that proves you don't know how to drive before you can buy one of those POSiuses?
jjorsett: And be obnoxiously smug and preachy about it.

Krieghund: Barry McCockner: [s2.quickmeme.com image 590x393][img.fark.net image 590x393]I like how it's a picture of a two lane road. There is no fast lane.
sunderland56: I'm pretty sure that one pound of kerosene has a lot more usable energy in it than one pound of charged batteries. I know that Boeing engineering is a little slow on the uptake; but in an aircraft, weight matters.
Current Resident: Part of the way that I take into the office is a ~6 mile stretch of state route with two lanes in each direction and a posted limit of 55 MPH, mostly everyone does somewhere between 60 and 65. I typically fall in the former camp.So one morning a few years ago I'm tooling along on my way to work being passed by slightly faster traffic on the left, whatever, when a vehicle swooshed by doing--easily--70 to 75. It was a white Prius towing two jet skis.No one believes me, of course.
