Inertial confinement is just fusion bomb research wrapped up in a nice story. Tokamaks might work in the future (JET already reached physical break-even, ITER will probably reach technical break-even) but they'll have so much engineering issues (mainly because the hull will become very radioactive) that the remaining power will probably be so expensive that wind and solar will be the much cheaper solution.

It is much more difficult and expensive to get a spare car, and driving a car requires a license. A spare bike on the other hand would be much cheaper than the lock (2nd hand oldies go here for about $50 - 100), and you don't need a license to drive one and bikes don't have license plates who tell the state who's their owner.

The only difference between a car salesman and a computer salesman is that the car salesman knows he's lying.
