Fuel efficient automobiles

Apparently there’s a video game going on around us on these freeways. It seems that Toyota Prius owners have fun trying to maximize their MPG, which is displayed on a dashboard readout. I love stuff like this, like I love the coming charge of the Hybrids. We get enough of these on the road and Bush and the Saudis can both go to hell.

Capitalism

I love this – Zopa.com. It allows anyone to act as a borrower or lender within the free market system. Genius! It feels so new milleniual. Now when’s it coming to America??? Like that new pollution trading system, this little bit of innovation is UK-only.

I saw my first hybrid SUV this afternoon. Funny, my first reaction wasn’t Wow or Neato but Hey, it’s about damn time. After all, this is 2005. There’s no reason for us to still be driving around in these internal combustion beasts anymore – well, no reason other than the Oil Cartels. The cool thing is that, now that they have power in the white house, their abuse of that power to jack up the price of oil is going to lead the free market towards more fuel-efficient cars.
