    That license reminded me of Jet entering a noob thread about BR, Old Navy, or other non-baller brand and smugly proclaiming "lol". The idea that spending the $$$ on Jil or MMM suggests one has become enlightened and thus managed to free themselves from the mundane evils entrapping the common man-- e.g. Gap, BR, or even oil. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. I find it amusing.

    surprised such an analytical person as yourself would make such an ignorant remark bb1

    couldn't help but lol

    Maybe I'm just trying to get you to chime in with a reaction. Looks like it worked. So you really are enlightened eh?

    snake,

    the asymmetric shirt looks great on you. I knew you could pull it off well.


    Thanks man, I'm really enjoying it. Glad I was able to get it off your hands. [​IMG]

    Cool car, but what a boob! That "oil free" electric car is likely gets its juice from a power plant that burns coal or other fossil fuels.

    Nukes account for a minority of total power production in the US. And it's a national-regional marketplace for electricity, so the specific plant supplying the energy is largely irrelevant.

    However, electricity prices are likely less volatile than oil prices due to the use of multiple sources (e.g. coal, natural gas, nuclear, etc) as opposed to just one source. So that is one advantage, but considering the initial purchase price of the vehicle it's a bad choice financially.

    One should buy a car like that for the technology, novelty, or performance. But to display the same underlying attitude as that of a Prius owner is just, well....


    the piece of mind of driving a car that runs off electricity and is pretty sleek would definitely outweigh whatever extra cost it might be to run it.
    no it wouldn't, as BB1 explains, how can you have peace of mind from a car running on electricity when it probably indirectly squirts just as much carbon into the atmosphere as any other car?

    And yes it is a bit smug to imprint "LOL OIL" on the back of your roadster, but I think it was intended more to be humorous than smug.


    I first saw that pic on Digg, didn't recognize it as a Tesla, and just assumed the joke was because the sports car had horrible fuel efficiency. I thought it was funny then. Since finding out it was a Tesla, I think the plate is smug.

    uncontrol I think you need a haircut or more hair product, looking a little too sloppy lately. Then again could just be humidity fucking shit up like it is with my hair lately.

    loloil sounds like a vanity plate that should go on my 1970 Ford Torino.
