Ken needs one of these!

And a pretty pink helmet.

I'll even take time from oppressing Galileo to help him out.

Not me. I'm gonna buy me a new Chevy Volt for 40 grand! It will go 40 miles (almost, if I go real slow) on batteries! That will just about get me to work and back. Hell, I'll be so f*cking happy to have an electric vehicle, I'll push the damned thing the rest of the way. I'll show you Galileo oppressors! By the way, can anyone REALLY take time off from oppressing Galileo??

Electric vehicles are the future. Mostly because Congress is mandating 20% ethanol by 2015, which will eat the carbs in our older bikes, and will get poorer mileage, thus making the 35-mpg fleet average requirement by 2015 even more difficult. Add in the EPA classing CO2 as a pollutant, and gasoline engines won't be worth the trouble for manufacturers.

I saw an envirotard on the news who said, "The manufacturers can simply make their cars lighter." Right. Because they never thought of that. They like making their cars heavy for no reason. I can't wait to see these mental giants' heads explode when a few million people start plugging their cars in at once. "You mean electricity doesn't come free from that socket in the wall?"
