Comment Re:Driving yes, but charging? (Score 1) 990

I'm curious. What state do you live in? The pictures I hear people talking about electric vehicles does not seem to match what I see on a day to day basis around where I live.

Probably because EV chargers are less visible than gas stations. You can see public chargers here:

Different poster here: I have not only driven an M3, I owned a 2005 M3 for 4 years. Traded it in on a 2012 Mustang Boss 302 (which was faster and better handling than the M3, but had a crappy interior). I traded the Boss 302 in on my 2013 Tesla P85+. The M3 is more nimble than the Tesla, although the Tesla does handle really well. As far as acceleration the Tesla blows the M3 away. The Tesla is much better to drive and live with than the M3.

Of course they could bring them down over land, but I think the unpredictability of exactly where they would land could be marginally terrifying.

They already did a landing on land back in December. The landing site (ocean or land) depends on where the rocket is going. If it needs to reach high orbit like the ISS the 1st stage does not have enough fuel to go back to shore and they do an ocean landing.

Part of my concern is my existing Steam library and whether or not I would need to repurchase a majority of the titles I already own.

I'm very impressed with how Valve/Steam handles this situation. When you buy a game on Steam you buy it for all platforms. I used to run Windows and had some Steam games. Then I switched to Linux and any games I had that had a Linux port were available to play. No effort required, they were simply there in the Linux Steam client. A few months later another couple of games I had from the Windows days released Linux ports and they just appeared as available/purchased in my Steam client on their own.
