I did something similar one time.

I used to park in the avenues to avoid the stupid $60 per month #parking fee my job charged us for a parking lot they owned.

Anyway, one time I went to get my #car, and some #jerk parked so close to me I couldn't move. He was trying to turn 2 parking spaces next to a driveway into 3. There was no choice since there was a car behind me as well.

So I got in, nudged my bumper carefully up to his, and then pushed his car out of the way, which meant he was fully blocking the driveway now.

As I #drove away, I called the church phone number for the #driveway he was blocking, and told them there was a car blocking the drive.

Never found out what happened, but I didn't really care. #karma?

This Fiat 600 was one of the first models I made in #Blender, since it's my favourite car ever. Over the years I retouched it, only bits each time. I hope you like it! Let me know what you think of it! :)

Whoopsie. It looks like someone tried use the wrong side of Starbucks as a drive-thru. They drove up onto the curb and over two trees, stripped them down to their trunks, and churned up the grass in the tree lawn.

The fastest road car in the world revealed - and it's electric
It's the most powerful street-legal car ever to come out of Italy. And when your competitors include Ferrari and Lamborghini, that's some badge of honour.

It may even be the most powerful road car ever, although when you're dealing with hypercars (the noun supercar is no longer sufficient) it's a fine margin between first, second and third.

But being number one is not the most important thing. Nor that it costs £2m. What's really special about the Pininfarina Battista, recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, is this: it's all-electric.

Really like this car! I took a picture of my Saab's odometer reading today so I can sell it. (I already have another car.) But it sure would be nice to have an electric convertible sportscar that is an electric hybrid!

Wait... did I just read this?

Brings me right back to last week, when Trump accidentally didn't move US towards war footing with the DPRK -- that ambivalence I feel, when someone I couldn't anticipate agreeing with does something less than horrible.

Uber bought my former employer Motivate (dba Capital Bikeshare, DC) last summer, which seemed like an odd match -- Uber being Uber, and CaBi being a unionized bikeshare system -- but it would line up with this surprising 'cars are going away' thesis. Not that this linkage gets them off the hook: way too much power and resources concentrated in far too few unaccountable hands, just like every other damned corporate major. I am curious to see where they take this though. As with the oil majors vs. the big reinsurance companies, sets up a contest between rival capitalist fiefdoms.

Also interesting from an organizing perspective, in that it redefines upwards the contribution anticipated from its workforce. Could this mean more leverage for Lyft drivers, or another opening fur useful regulation?

Upgrade your car's emergency preparedness with these 5 products


The first three are fairly well known but the last two are more interesting:

\* PanicSafe Emergency Locator & Car Charger - stays in the charger outlet which is useful if your car rolls or otherwise tosses everyone around in an accident as chances are this stays in the outlet plug. Triggered by G-Force or pushing its panic button, it will notify up to 7 of your contacts.

\* Ztylus Stinger Car Charger Emergency Tool - also fits in the charge outlet but will act as a window breaker and seat belt cutter (OK I have one of these on my car keys but seeing my car is a keyless start, my keys stay in my pocket.

Extreme weather is sucking the life from your electric car By Andrew J. Hawkins @andyjayhawk Feb 10, 2019


"Last month’s polar vortex was especially rough for EV owners"

https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/10/18217041/electric-car-ev-extreme-weather-polar-vortex

People seem to forget that running lights and heat also takes energy from the EV car's battery.

Musk's claims related to his bogus cars are embellished, inflated, and false.
