    Manufacturing solar panels is a pretty complex industrial process and the panels won't last forever. I'll take a horse or even better an ox.

    I do agree how dumb it is in shows like TWD that they are still taking gas out of cars years later

    Windmill. Water mill. Make Conan walk around in a circle pushing a thing. All of these can be used to generate electricity - slowly - but it's still better than gas. Yes, horse is better in the long run but between gas car and electric car, electric wins.

    Actually batteries would be a bigger industrial logjam than solar panels or at least any batteries with a range of more than a few miles. If anything you would use wood or coal, something not requiring an internal combustion engine which needs refined fuels and is complex.

    A really lite EV would be make sense - I suspect a big heavy thing would not be realistic

    I wonder what happens if they really can't sell this truck?

    Maybe nothing much? It does seem a preposterous thing to launch

    Yes - basically traction engine for a flywheel, and horse.

    It just sounds terrible that
    • I'm paying taxes
    • to go to law enforcement
    • who will use that money to buy these shitty vehicles
    • which leads to the profit of a really shitty person.

    I agree this is the issue. Making electricity is easy. Making lots of it is hard. Anything generated would probably go to lighting and cooking. A single standardish 300 watt panel would take 17 days to charge a Cybertruck.

    Just the presales will take up all production for years. Maybe lots of years, depending on how production goes.

    The ideal is to have an electric ATV that you can plug into solar and a wind generator.

    Kash Patel is on my list as one of the first to end up dead in a ditch if Trump takes power.

    That's a pretty good added context.

    However.

    Behold the GOAT of added context.

    Why would anyone in Israel give a rat's ass about what Taylor Swift thinks?

    (Again, I make a mental note to finally listen to some of her music to see what all the fuss is about.)

    The MI GOP does not have an office right now. Its address is a mailbox at a UPS store in Grand Rapids.

    Oh, and Karamo is picking fights with the DeVos family, their biggest donor.

    If only they could schedule an election against the Louisiana Democratic party, just to get back in the win column.
