Yes, that's why they had local events in other cities.

But I think it's kind of dumb to think that in a city with tens or hundreds of thousands of cars idling daily in traffic for the past 70 years, that 500 busses making a single trip is going to have a more negative impact than if leaders don't hear some kind of voice for change.

"And the WP8.1 Developer Preview sure wasn't running nicely on my Lumia. I could not make any calls after the phone had been on for a while."
I had that problem at first as well; it turned out that it was turning on some new? feature called "Wi-Fi calling" by default. After I turned that off and set it to prefer cellular calling I had no more problems. 8.1 developer preview is great.

It's a little [illogical] to say a tomato is a vegetable. It's very [illogical] to say it's a suspension bridge.

Logic is a binary function. Something is in a logical set - or it is not. Being illogical is not a synonym for being mistaken. Degrees of precision are irrelevant for set inclusion. Fuzzy logic is not logic.

BTW: It is illogical to conclude that a Tomato in NOT a vegetable, simply because it belongs to a taxonomical subclass, "fruit". It as if I were to say your testicle is not animal.

Pretty sure they hit the '25,000 electric cars to the people' mark. ;-)

As for buying cars from dealers, I've been in quite a few purchases myself. The only dealer I had a reasonably good experience with was Saturn.

With Lexus, Jaguar, and BMW, there was a lot of negotiation. I had to go to several dealers to get competing prices (which were *always* with a spread of $2-3K). In addition, the push was always to buy something either off-the-lot or something that they could have brought over from another dealer's inventory within 2-3 days.

I was with my dad when he went to get his BMW 5 series. They pushed him into a few options he wasn't particularly interested in because they could get the car to the lot in 2 days. And once he signed the contract, it was a done deal. He called the dealership a couple hours later and wanted a different color, and the answer was that the car was already on it's way from across the state. It arrived more than a week later with barely a 'sorry for the delay' from the dealer.
