Comment I like EVs, and I can afford one. But ... (Score 1) 688

.. as much as I like EVs, I like my current condo more. As of right now, there is no way for the couple hundred cars parked in my condo's underground to get charged. The changes to the building's electrical grid to make charging possible are absolutely cost prohibitive. So, no EV for me my neighbours and other millions of people in a similar situation.

Not everyone lives, or wants to live, in a detached house in the suburbia.

Don't forget that a lot of people there have decent CS and maths education, but less than optimal employment opportunities.

Add to that a dim view of government in general, and you have a bunch of young people who will be happy to spend whatever time it takes to achieve a certain goal. For the wast majority the nefariousness of the goal is a complete non issue.

Wait, what??? Your kindle does not have those apps? I guess you must mean "not when I first took it out of the box", because there were few Android apps that I couldn't load on my Fire.

Of course, if you mean a "Kindle paperwhite" ... you are right.

If I made that food for $5/plate ... I may as well go to a restaurant, where I pay only a bit more and have the whole experience. For a simple dish like that if your cost is more than $2.50, you're doing something wrong. (West coast of the US retail prices. If you do your shopping at Costco/CashAndCarry/Winco/ethnic supermarket you should be able to get it well under $2/plate.)
