How is it some dipshit with zero business or manufacturing experience can run a Kickstarter and bring in 100 million dollars for a dishwasher-safe light-up dildo that tastes like shnozzberries if you warm it up in the microwave and doubles as a vape pen, but nobody could find some investors for supposedly groundbreaking, status-quo-destroying miracle batteries?

Anyone who still buys anything the Democrats promise them are literally fucking retarded. The Republican party is run by faggots too, but goddamn, I'll take the lesser of two evils, and dems are 1000% worse.

Can this old, fat sack of shit fly off in his balloon-powered house already?

Tied to the tree with what?

Knowing Oregon and Feds, the arsonist is gonna say it was a noose and they were trying to lynch him and get the FBI to arrest those three people for hate crimes.

There is no such thing as "investing" in healthcare and environmentalism. They are both black hole money pits.

The only "investing" that is happening is that these faggots are stealing our money through "taxes" which they then launder to themselves while convincing all the single-brain-cell troglodyte masses that they're doing something good.

But would he have been considered involved at that point? All his passengers were out and his vehicle was not hit by the other driver as far as I can tell.

I'm sure they'll want to twist it since they were his passengers at one point, but I'm pretty sure that law, as written, only requires people who were actively involved to stay put, not witnesses.

Depending on the details of the case that we havent heard, I can see it going one way or the other.

I didn't say that guy wasn't a moron, but the person in the other car must have been extremely unattentive to manage to hit and kill someone in a 45mph zone when the Lyft car would have still had its lights on and been really obvious.

It's hardly a highway. It's an isolated, low-traffic, two-lane road with a fat median grassy separating it from oncoming lanes and fat shoulders. The speed limit is only 45 mph. It runs alongside a bunch of beach neighborhoods.

The person who hit him is the biggest moron of all.

For those wondering, here is the stretch of highway.

It isn't some dense traffic six-lane raised freeway or anything, just a run-of-the-mill road, and it was nearly 2AM so probably almost no traffic at all.

Not really sure what they could charge the driver with. It's not like he's the one who ran the dude over, and I'm not sure which law would require him to stay there after he had already cancelled the ride and they were all out of his car, even if one of them got ran over. Definitely interested to hear what they might try to charge him with, if anything.

Send them to Turkey. For some reason, those fuckers consider the American White Whale a legendary catch.

These faggots are already experimenting with shit like having to pay a subscription for things like car seat heaters that are already installed in your car to work.

There is no way I'd give up my car and switch to this communal rental bullshit because these fags will just make them so expensive to rent that it won't be any cheaper than if I just outright own my own car.

Presently, yes. I talked quite a lot about how battery tech is growing much faster thanks to EVs becoming prevalent. They will only continue to get better and become more logical to use with time. Tesla wouldn't be developing semi trucks if they didn't think they'd reach the state of having massive range and rapid recharge times.

In any case, when I say hauling/towing, I'm not talking about purely from an everyday commercial perspective. Some people only need to pull a trailer a couple times a year. Tesla's Cybertruck will kick the shit out of the Dodge 4x4 V* Magnum I own to pull shit around and it'll be a lot cheaper to charge than it is to fill my truck up, that's for damn sure. And when it isn't used for hauling, the Cybertruck will be more efficient, comfortable and have infinitely better performance than trucks like mine, as well. I'd never daily-drive my truck, and therefore own a car for that, but something like the Cybertruck, or Rivian's new truck, or Ford's EV thing or the new Hummer could all concievably replace both my vehicles.

The complaint that EVs aren't the best for something right now doesn't mean they never will be. There was a time when motor vehicles were new and practically worthless for anything aside from uncomfortably carting a person or two short distances. Forget hauling anything or going far. But look at cars we have today.

I've already watched countless videos on EVs, including hauling.

As for them only making sense for a limited segment of people, I also touched on that a couple times in my post above. I even stated in my original comment that electrics have some advantages "depending on the use and circumstance."

The people who present-day EVs are best suited for are those who rarely have to travel far. They're great for short daily commutes or store runs and other local trips where you'd never have to charge it away from home, for example. Those aren't their only uses, obviously, just giving an example.

Probably because most hybrids sucked ass. Why buy a hybrid when something like a Tesla gives you sports/supercar performance and looks infinitely better as well? The idiots at the big car manufacturers always made Hybrids ass-ugly lumps with wheezy, lackluster performance and barely any benefit at all as far as being "green" goes. If Tesla tried making a hybrid, it'd probably do fantastic, because they have enough intelligence to know that even greenies want their cars to be more than a fugly, wheezy turd.

Sounds like you're an idiot handshake from reddit.

I said what I said. It's the judge and jury's responsibility to determine the severity of the crime and the severity of the punishment, not legislators and their one-size-fits-all (except for when you're special) bullshit.

I merely used hate crime laws as an example. I'm obviously not going to list off every single law that also follows this redundant pattern. Feel free to give examples of the laws you're referring to and I'll let you know whether or not I have a problem with them.

Judges and juries already have the means to issue flexible punishments depending on the severity of the crime, so your strawman questions have zero relevance. The whole point of having a trial is for the case to be explained and understood before the punishment is decided and meted out, on a case-by-case basis.

You seem to be misunderstanding what I said. I didn't say "all levels of violence are equivalent."

I said that there are too many redundant laws when one law would already suffice. Leave it to the judge and jury to decide the punishment for the crime, not faggot legislators.

Uh... I guess you didn't read my "do not mention list.

You never mentioned torque. Of course, I already suspected that you were a moron that doesn't know a fucking thing about vehicles of any kind, but now I know for a fact that you don't lmao

Good to see that you also barely skimmed my post, because I addressed your banal retorts already. The only person here who has failed is you. At life.

Here is one thing that an internal combustion engine is great for - Go run one in your closed garage and just chill in the driver's seat for a while and find out!
