Looks like those'll rub. And those steps won't last.  Looks like those'll rub. And those steps won't last. 

Yeah, I bought one... couldn’t help myself.

Sam Posey Sam Posey

Sam Posey is 72 years old and as colorful as ever. As if to prove it, when we catch up with the race-car driver, Formula 1 commentator, and author of “The Mudge Pond Express,” one of the 1970s most-gripping racing autobiographies, he’s padding around his studio in Sharon, Connecticut, with an easel and a multihued…

TAX THE ROBOTS

“We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work. We should not feel nervous about the tollbooth collector not having to collect tolls. We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited about it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die,” she…

5-Year Fuel Savings Of Going Electric, By State 5-Year Fuel Savings Of Going Electric, By State

Using the EIA’s avg residential kWh cost (Dec. ‘18), AAA’s current avg cost of regular unleaded (3/4/19), and the EPA new car avg of 22 MPG, and based on driving 15k miles per year, here’s the five-year fuel savings, by state, of replacing an average gasoline-powered car with a ‘19 Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range (rated at 27…

EPA's basis for Tesla Model 3 fuel savings EPA's basis for Tesla Model 3 fuel savings

From the fine print: The average new vehicle gets 22 mpg and costs $12,600 to fuel over 5 years. Cost estimates are based on 15,000 miles per year at $0.12 per kW-hr [assumption for gas cars is $3.70 per gallon - there is a slight discrepancy between the fine print on the two graphics below].

Here are some louvers for your Fit (just saw a set IRL on my lunch stroll).

Let's talk yellow lights. Let's talk yellow lights.

An article on The Drive started me down the rabbit hole. Interesting how important yellow light length is to preventing accidents at intersections. I wonder if most yellows are timed to go with the speed limit, or the actual speed that the majority of drivers go through intersections (varies greatly, I’m sure).…

He paid with a check.

What idiot... Sounds like he’s been fired. I hope he goes to prison.

CR Brand Report Card (updated today) CR Brand Report Card (updated today)

Subaru’s killing it. Audi seems to be figuring out QC. Nice to see Mazda near the top (one of only four with “green” in all three categories) - hope they’ll get some more sales from it. Lexus owners are less than satisfied? Interesting. Harder to meet high expectations, I guess. Honda keeps sliding... 

Cleared my throat. Pushed off. And Lived Life.

Jimmy went first. No surprise to me. It was his idea to begin with and he was oldest and kind of a crazy kid anyway. Do-anything crazy. Ketchup-on-chocolate cake crazy. His little sister Jeannie was crazier than he was and always wanted to prove it; no surprise she went next. But I was surprised when Big Sis went.…
