Comment Re:Not in London (Score 1) 947

What the hell are you talking about? 25% of morning peak road traffic in central london is cyclists, so there are allot of people that disagree with you.

Nothing particularly dangerous about London, in fact i would say it feels safer than many cities because there are so many cyclists on the road you really feel that motorists will anticipate you such as being on the inside of them when they turn left. Watch out passing heavy trucks on the inside, same as anywhere else.

Read on for the full details.

Comment Re:Hydrogen is indeed quite dangerous... (Score 3, Informative) 479

Most of the time, the hydrogen for fuel cells is stored in form of metal hydrides. I don't think that it gets explosively released, even in case of a crash. It's not a pressure tank. It needs to get seriously heated (150 degrees Celsius?) from the *inside* first before the tank starts venting it.
