I used to worry about this but I realized that if Nuclear Weapons don't kill us then nothing will. I think people overestimate the plasticity of the universe. It is the same reason you can't just build nanomachines that will build nano-nano machines.

Good point. I didn't think about that. Oh well
Great car but they don't get it. A car isn't practical for the general public unless you can add at least 300 miles or range in under 5 minutes. What I can't understand is why they don't just make a exchangeable battery pack that fits in the trunk. For day to day use the on board battery is fine and for long trips you can just swap out a extended range battery. There is still room for luggage in the front.
They should make a long trip adapter like a generator that you tow behind you or strap on the roof that takes gas. I think that would really widen the cars appeal.

How old were you when you first realized that you were a antisemite? And yes attacking a government who's policy you disagree with differently because of their culture does count as racism.

That is not the point, he was obnoxious and and maybe financially criminal, Is he facing financial penalties? No he is facing the loss of his life (I.E. the loss of 50 years of his liberty) for never physically harming anybody. Beware of the government that so enthusiastically protects you for what will they do to you when they decide you have horrifically offended them. Even if there is a low chance of him getting it the fact that he faces is it is what should be taken into account.
I use my brain regularly and it is older than 15 years old.
