    But then the population centers would be more clusterred, and nukes would be more effective. THINK OF THE INNOCENT LIVES LOST.

    Actually yeah, let's go with God's plan.
    :yes:

    The Prius is the most ugly motherfucker second only to the Smart car. This isn't fucking europe, I'm sick of driving into town and seeing every douchebag driving a 1.5 liter 4 banger. It's not like they're saving money either, that shit costs a lot to repair and insure. What happened to 4x4s, what happened to the Silverado, what happened to the Firebird? Where's the performance, the horsepower, the unmitigated American spirit? I hold great respect for a well tuned asian vehicle or a stylish european car or a good ol' turbo diesel, but in gods name what the fuck is this!?

    A "car" just represents the freedom that men need. However, it has become less and less relevant in this interconnected society.

    No a "car" just represents the ability to go from point A to point B in today's ever lengthening commute.

    well in britain i know for a fact there is no reason for any person to have a car. you can jump on an easy combination of trains and buses and end up anywhere in britain, usually in less time and less money than a car. hence my point

    Can't we all just agree that pretty much everyone here agrees that cars suck and that TA should buy a 10 gallon hat?

    Okay, but places like Virginia aren't like that. They're widespread country where you need to drive 2 miles to get to the highway and another 15 minutes of high speed driving to get into town. This is how most of the south is, and the mid west is even worse. Even a lot of California is country. Not to mention places with very low population density like Alaska. Public transportation in such places, barring metropolitan hubs, just doesn't make sense.

    Oh and Dogar once upon a time did send me a really sweet pewter belt buckle with wolves on it, so blame him.

    Electric cars these days are assembled with a "stack" Lithium Ion batteries. This is what happens if a li-ion battery is shorted, overheated, or excessively damaged. Yes, I realize the cars we drive now are filled with gallons of gasoline, but gasoline doesn't ignite from puncture or blunt trauma, nor is it capable of shorting.
