Comment Re:What an idiot (Score 1) 271

Uh, no.. it would never have occurred to me to do that.. mostly because my department would not be so callous (that would be the HR people or corporate) and they were my friends. I wouldn't do that to them, and I would lose respect as well. So if you do this, you are definitely not someone I want to hire.

Here is a guardian article.. basically, they don't want green energy. I have no idea why they give a shit. This is capitalism at work. Of course, energy sector is old energy, and they got plenty of lobbyists who know how to grease politician hands, maybe green energy hasn't figured how to do that?

The main problem is scalability... Taking 30 minutes a charge is fine, as long as people know the etiquette. e.g. don't leave your vehicle after it is charged, as others need to use it too.. and if you're on a waiting list, then that is going to suck because at most you have to wait 30 minutes, and then another 30 minutes, and so you are now into an hour to charge. It might be better to start moving to autonomous electric cars at that point..

So, I assume they don't actually talk on the phone.. but the idea of two committed men from different religion talking dirty to each other because one of them thinks the other is an attractive member of the opposite sex to be hilarious. But it shows the power that this scam has on young men. This would work anywhere, in any country...

Were they ever to begin with? It just seemed like small government was just another way of saying less interference in making money. That said we do need a conservative thought to help curb government excesses. I'm not saying government is a friend, more of a beast that needs to be properly chained. :-)

That's because it is part of the Republican platform and people identify themselves as conservative vote Republican without any actual idea if conservatism is actually being practiced including using outdated economic models that doesn't provide any benefit to voters.
