It does not hold a charge long enough to make it to work and back. Nor can it do the 70mph I need to do on the interstate to get to work.

if it can burn up the tires, my guess is that it can do 70 as well.

God damn, the more time goes by the more I want that car. (And an outlet to charge it from.)

I'm starting to contemplate just embracing the midwest, ditching the 53rd-floor-condo-by-the-marina life, and getting a house in the near-burbs... Having a car without also having a place to work on it is a totally new thing for me, and I don't like it.





Also, and this is completely unrelated, but it turns out that you can buy engagement / weddings rings at Wal-Mart for between nine and eleven dollars, just in case you find yourself short on funds but in urgent need to propose to that special someone at 3AM.

The jeweler ingotnmy fiances engagement ring from suggested amazon for my wedding band. He said it's cheaper cheap and easy, and to just bring it to him if I want it engraved.

I'm leaning towards a carbon fiber ring right now embedded with rose gold (to match her ring)

And the Soviets weren't the only ones strapping military jet engines onto passenger trains in the 70s.

In fact, they weren't even the first.

In 1966, The New York Central Railroad scored a pair of GE J47-19 turbojets off of a Convair B-36D intercontinental bomber, flipped them upside-down and strapped them onto this Buddliner RDC:



They took it up to the leisurely speed of 196 MPH before coming down off the drugs, realizing that this was an dangerously insane and idiotic creation, and instead strapped those same two engines onto a snowblower. (It was reported to be highly effective at clearing snow and ice from the tracks, with the occasional side effect of also clearing the tracks from the ground.)
