Sounds good to me.

Sounds good to me.

Me, too.

I could live quite happily without freeways. In fact, given my 6 mile
(round trip) commute each day, I'm considering an all-electric car as
my next vehicle.

A trip to a client site is typically 50 miles one way for me.

Thankfully I can do a lot of things remotely.

The last time I was able to walk to work was in the Army.

Just a note if you ever consider a gas/electric hybrid, with such a short
commute you probably won't see the book gas mileage because the
engine needs to warm up before it will shutoff while driving.

Of course, those who still live out in the sticks will need some other
way to get around. This will be the rail lines, just like in the old

like flowers after a rain. Flight instructors will be busy. The little

.stuff snipped above and here


This all assumes that Joe Average Goober is smart enough to be trained
in the skills/art of flying an airplane.

Then again, airplane operation does tend to stick pretty closely to the
Laws of Natural Selection (the dumb ones are removed from the gene
pool). Maybe in 4 or 5 generations the actual average intelligence level
will rise if more people took up flying...

O.K. Hopefully our more "sensitive" readers will recognize the dark
humor above and not go ballistic.

Be Careful out There

Nah, I want a pure electric vehicle. Plug & play.

That is plug and PAY, Jay, plug and PAY.

And given our impending shortage of electrical generation capacity,
people who move this direction are going to pay dearly in 10-15 years
.... unless they can ramp up the nuclear power plants a lot faster than I
think they can.

In 10-15 years it's probably time to replace that car anyway.
