I just couldn’t keep my characteristic angle at the same level as yours...too much impedance...so I figured I’d attempt to insulate myself and enhance the conductivity of the discussion by discharging a source all could use...

This was really funny, folks... thank you!

However... dinner must be made, bellies filled, and then Bourbon and perhaps a movie (most probably “The Return Of the King” - the third installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy).

Hale out... Ya’ll have a GREAT night!

Those notes could be construed as a form of racism if they are written in cursive.

When something is given away for free, the demand may end up exceeding the supply. Perhaps they should charge people for charging their cars.

LOL could be a hit song these days. Maybe Justin Bieber could dump his Lambo for a Tesla and record it.

Maybe some kind of super-conductor capacitor with a way of modulating the discharge?

It will happen eventually. Resistance is futile.

Electric Car Dudz:

Mench up and supply your own energy.

Live close enough to work to came and go on a single charge.

Pedal a generator bike all day at your desk to charge your own car.

Buncha winers. and briers.

Electrical power theft is sure to follow. Look for a run on extension cords.

From the article:

“I don’t think you should be able to reserve spots. it should be based on how close you are, your level of power, basically your level of need,” said one motorist on Twitter.

In case there was ANY doubt about the political leanings of these folks.
