Depends on where you live. Over here (.nl) most water towers have been decommissioned by now, so water pressure does rely on electricity these days.
(28 engines? What is the current record holder?)
Off the top of my head, SpaceX already holds the record with 9 engines on a single stage. There have been stages with 8 engines (Saturn 1B?). The Soviets tried 30 engines on the N-1, but that failed 4 times in 4 attempts. There's been a Delta variant with 8 boosters clustered around the first stage. If you count engines with multiple nozzles, the number goes up (5x4 nozzles on the Soyuz, but that's only 5 engines).
The one thing Classic Theme restorer can't do is set the tab size to small values. I use the Custom Tab Width extension with a minimum tab width of 20 px; Australis' stupid tab redesign ensures that widths below ~50px are unusable.

What do you mean, 'creepy'? This is a function that automatically switches on existing systems (adaptive cruise control, lanekeeping). As ever, any action you take manually will override this.
My grandfather died in a crash because he fell asleep (or fainted, we never found out definitively) at the wheel. Had this existed 50 years ago, I might have been able to meet him.
Some EVs also let you limit the max that your pack charges up to to further extend lifespan (it's usually destructive both to use the very top end and the bottom end of the discharge range).
I wish I could get my laptop to do that. It spends most of its time in a dock anyway, endlessly cycling between 100% and 95% of capacity, eating up the limited number of charge cycles to no benefit.
You forget to account for the energy storage, as you won't be using much lighting while the sun shines. And the extra air con load, depending on your local climate.
Cockpit windows in airliners are tiny. You have maybe 20 cm of clearance between the control panels below and above the cockpit windows, so you have a very limited field of view.
This Airbus proposal isn't the first windowless cockpit, by the way.
British Aerospace proposed the P.125 VTOL fighter which had the pilot sitting in a windowless cockpit buried in the fuselage.
And Charles Lindbergh had no front view on his Atlantic flight: he had to rely on a periscope and his side windows.
Pioneer 10 and 11 predate the "Flagship" moniker. They also weren't really flagships: they had a limited science package and were designed for low cost, their mission was to see what circumstances the Voyagers would encounter and determine the feasibility of the Voyager mission.
I don't mean to disparage the achievements of Pioneer 10 and 11, by the way. It's just that NASA attaches a specific meaning to "Flagship" and the Pioneers didn't fit that bill.
I've seen some of those schemes. They work for small areas where the road is designed to slow everybody to a crawl. On main arteries, not so much.
