#2 The Flintstones were more woke
because they used pedal power.
Of course, Fred must have eaten a lot of hay
and made a mess of the street out the other end.
And of course, he must have produced more methane gas out the back end too after working himself up with all that exercise.

#5 the wa state legislators passed a bill that became effective first of this month to add $75 a year to car tabs of hybrid and all electric cars. but money can only be used for building out charging stations. so my non plug in camry gets no benefit.
in 6 years that fee is to go to general road maintenance fund but i am not betting on it.

#6 The real bitch is when the wild fires are raging, electrical power has been shut off, the batteries have been run down and their homes are surrounded by choking smoke and towering flames, the owners of electric cars will have to use good old foot power to get the hell outta there.

#9 I interpret this as a probing attack by the Gretabots. Just how much will the proles endure before they go kinetic?

#10 ^Never attribute to malice anything that can be explained by stupidity (I admit in this particular case it's a mind boggling one)
