Irritating, I've got a time travel story I can't recall title of too, where it's a fixed rift with one end being near a wreck of a cloth mill, the other end near it where its up and working, with some weird conditions like a beggar that they throw a coin to ... If I could do a content search on my kindle, I'd find it.

Not ubiquitous, but I can see a charge lasting me a week. The nuisance is I'm in an apartment with basement parking: if many people do this there's going to need to be some new wiring system there so we get charged (dollars, not electrons) appropriately. Otherwise I'd buy (lease) one tomorrow.

The answer to that would be to let the 'local automakers' leave your country rather than prop them up. (like happened here, Australia) Short term pain, but probably long term gain. Carmakers like Elon Musk/Tesla with very different car making models aren't likely to oppose this.

Don't hit the keys so hard, it hurts.
