Even worse than Joisey?

NJ drivers are pretty bad, but in their defense they learned to drive on highway exits that were envisioned by a child with a crayon.

A static powerplant, even coal fired and with about 25% transmission line losses to homes, is far more efficient than any ICE car. But I'm sure you knew that.

Do drives in Florida use their horns a lot?  Here someone could do basically anything including coming to a complete stop on a highway, and no one will honk.  Where I grew up, people would honk if you even thought about driving too slow or doing something stupid.

I guess what I'm getting at is: does honking decrease the number of stupid/obnoxious behaviors?

We used to have a GL350 and it would commonly show 1,000+ km range on the highway... Honestly, I didn't care enough to pay any closer attention, but that's what the dash computer told me.

 

Did something change with the current truck? Smaller tank?

I don't remember hearing any horns. Just a lot of like..."Hey, I'm in the rightmost of three lanes at an intersection with a no-U-turns sign...how about I pull ahead of everybody while the light is red, cross the other two lanes to the left, and make a U-turn"

The entire country of India would be evidence that no, honking does not decrease stupid driving behavior.

India is totally fucked anyway.  They drive into oncoming traffic and without headlights because why not.

Black energy? (tried searching, but I'm only getting results for malware attack called blackenergy)

post #22015 of 26291
It may be a Danish term, but it basically means coal, fossil fuels etc.

Black energy is what causes Find Finn to walk all bow legged the night after receiving some loving.
