To only think 10 years ahead would be far too nearsighted, but its an important near-term goal. Anything earth-mineral or based is finite. Nuclear etc, is a stopgap, it will run out too, and to think we are wise enough to harness the atmospheric tides with zero environmental impact is lunacy. I think we can both agree Read more

Solar power is the only form of extra-terrestrial power and should be the only one we would legitimately consider for a 10,000 year or longer vision of sustainability.

There is an s2000 Rally twice a year that I participate in. One of the founders recently picked up one of these AMG super shuttles and brought it to play. Sometimes we get lotus, maclaren, etc. This year he was in my group fronted by a new NSX, M6 and this big merc chasing in slot 3.

Go east my son. If you do what I did and move to the opposite side of town, you always have the sun at your back, casting a silhouette of your awesomeness.

Bring over the AWD, add some VW badges and you have yourself an Golf R, and likely an MSRP to match.

Why anyone consider buying a $40K Mazda hatchback unless it has triangles in the engine bay is beyond me.

pretty sure that wealth is so concentrated there really wouldn’t be much to eat.

my guess is that the used EV stuff will get time under it and we’ll have super-capacitor boosters and over-volted hardware. Calling it now: the colors will be wild.

slightly different. it would be like if when Ali won, other boxers didn’t get as much food.
