If you think OP is saying up is down, you haven't been paying attention. Or you're not old. Believe me, as a 52-year-old, Hillary looked like a Republican from my yoot, complete with the careful not-talking-about stuff that is uncomfortable. I still voted for her, because better a 1970's republican than a whack job, but let's be honest about who we're electing.
Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands. Not Cuba or Venezuela. Dunno why you'd think that.
Hm, is it by any chance a Volkswagen or an Audi? Are you sure about those carbon numbers?
The majority of people are poor, so using a form of transportation that poor people use is pretty natural for them. However, the main problem with most public transport is that it sucks. Where it doesn't, everybody uses it, rich and poor, just like they do the sidewalks.
The thing about this is that I've driven a Tesla, and it's true that if you really put the pedal to the medal, it accelerates like fuck, but it would be really hard to do it accidentally—if you just put your foot on it normally, it doesn't take off on you. Bottom line, this is why we need self-driving cars. It's an absolute tragedy that we rely on human reflexes to avoid accidents.
The Prius is actually pretty zippy, because you get an electric motor _plus_ a gas motor when you punch it.
Why, I read on Slashdot just the other day that a few remote controlled bulldozers could have Fukushima cleaned up in a month and that tree-hugging anti-growth enviros should shut their pieholes about that accident.
More to the point: refusing to prosecute unless A or B is met is genuinely good for national security. If people know their mistakes are forgivable they're going to be much more inclined to cooperate with investigators to help seal the breach. If people think they're looking at 10-to-20 for their carelessness, they're far more likely to lawyer up.
Quinoa is bloody convenient, but I've never been able to warm up to the taste. A version that didn't have the saponins in it would be a huge improvement. Ain't science wonderful?
Just like in A Brave New World! I want to be a Beta. Those Alphas work much too hard. I'm happy to be a Beta.
...in keeping a piece of paper at 120 degrees for ten minutes.

An odd occupation for self-described tough guys, as well. If they're so tough, why do they care what anyone else says about them?
