Said nobody ever.

Stop watching Fox. Stop reading Breitbart.

They are lying to you.

It's cute how those who can't comprehend what "free speech" means are the first ones to complain about the free speech of others.

Hint: Your right to "free speech" does not come with a right to an audience.

Do we really need to school you again in what "free speech" means?

Well, you're talking about people who buy a Mercedes.

But while induction charging is an interesting idea (it would help save cords running around the garage that can be damaged or be a hazard), it makes me wonder about other benefits of an electric-car society.

That is, in places that have started up large solar systems, you have a problem of where to store the electricity generated during the day that isn't used. And if you have an electric car, you have a battery that can store some of it. One proposal is that you take your car to work and plug it in and it becomes a general receptacle for the electricity generated during the day. Then, when you take it home at night and plug it in, it becomes a source of power for your home at night. By having a large number of electric vehicles in play, you can help manage the electric grid by using them to store power and manage capacity.

I'm not sure how inductive powering would help. My physics is failing me at the moment, but I don't think that inductive charging is as efficient (it's slower, I do know that) and to reverse the flow would require using the energy stored in the car to run the coil to transfer the energy back to the grid.

It's an interesting idea and there's no reason not to do it as a feature, but there should still be the cord for other uses.

Yeah...that wasn't that funny.

Re: Dilbert
The sad thing is, Adams doesn't really just how far his head is stuck up his ass. If you read any of his political/cultural rantings, you can easily see that he's simply "listening to his gut."

He does not realize that he has become the Pointy Haired Boss.

So why does Job (or was it "Joe"?) have a New York Jewish accent?
