    Piled higher and deeper.

    Don't fuck with WalMart. They didn't get to where they are by being nice.

    I learned in this article that he still hasn't settled with that diver he called a pedophile, and that lawsuit is going to trial. Wtf? What an asshole.

    Like Austin said the multiplier makes idling insane. Even add up what one idle wastes in a year. Why? Fuck that

    That wasn't carbon shaming or virtue signalling. We were both in agreement about the issues with idling, multiplied by millions on top of that. I do not drive a hybrid or EV. I still think it's silly to leave your car idling for ages. That's just common sense.

    I've had a remote starter on my last two cars, and it's the best option I've ever had on a car. It's awesome. Maybe I just raised the sea level by a half millimeter, but, I don't care. My car is warm and toasty on a January morning.

    You may not care about carbon emissions but catalytic converters need to be hot in order to work and that's why an idling engine can produce up to twice as much pollution as an engine in motion. A cold engine also goes through more wear and tear than a warm engine. EVs on the other hand can be pre-warmed or pre-cooled without either of those problems.

    Yeah, when it is cold as hell out some people warm up their cars idling. Makes sense. I also warm my car up on occasion, usually after night skiing. Idling in front of a school when it is 60 degrees and you are in the school picking up your kid in the library is flat stupid.

    As for Dunfuck, I didn't pick a fight with him. He saw my Prius post in the wagon thread and jumped my ass because Prius owners are easy pickings for pricks like him. I post about my cars because I am interested in cars (car guy) and realize Prius pictures bring out the pricks. So eyes wide open. Shrug. Not here to make everybody happy or make friends with people who see the world from a completely different perspective. Plenty of good people here.

    Also find where I defended Elon. I may have offered my opinion on short positions.

    Also show me someone who doesn't virtue signal as they like to shame 'libs'. Walk out the door. Dunfuck signals mushroom dick fields every time he posts here for instance.

    Zooming out, it's pretty strange to see people embrace securities fraud. I didn't think I'd live to see it, but here we are.

    i also know there isn't fuck all going to change your mind, or jackstraws or anyone else fluffing musk. it's just a green version of the dumfuck trumpalos.
    Who the is strawjack?

    So I didn't know if Musk was the CEO or Chairman or both of Solarcity to make a point? His exact position in the company was irrelevant and still is when discussing an installation issue. Or the Exxon thing where it would be passed onto the consumer? Well, since you cannot comprehend anything outside the lines, try prying off your starched shirt, pulling the stick out of you ass, and think about how laws and policies can be modified and/or completely changed. Believe it or not it happens Sparky! Just like your hero trumpy killing the Obama fuel economy standards. Remember that one?

    And dunny that is correct, you or brotard will not change my mind about Musk. I have never bought one thing from him and do not own any stock. I think irl he is probably complete asshole because yeah he didn't exactly have a posh American childhood like you two, so he's a little tweaked. He's a billionaire and you two are not. That's the part that really hurts huh?

    I don't need to discuss anything with you two again, so best of luck on your war against him and his companies.

    Agreed, EVs are problematic for long road trips but are otherwise awesome for the majority of trips people take. There are also plug-in hybrids with something like 30 miles of EV range capable of doing both.

    Strawjack lobotomy confirmed. He dont know much but he know he angry. And that may beeeeee all he need to know.

    I don't get the winter warmup so much. Safest and best way to get up to temp is with the engine under load (driving). Cuts emissions & risk of theft while getting warm faster, win/win/win.

    keep it core iowegian, and make up shit to fit your narrative like you need too.

    as for you, white rhino, why the fuck wouldn't I be an ashole to you? what are the consequences? you are, and were, an unmitigated hypocritical cunt. Why shouldn't everyone be? There are no consequences to being a dumb greenwashing, POW supporting, piece of shit.

    Talk about triggered. My shit has always stunk and I have never hidden from it but I won't be silenced because I live in and function in this world just like you, albeit in Iowa, and with on eye toward doing what I do as cleanly as possible. I can advocate for policies all I want, just like you can be a dick to me as you see fit.

    There are no consequences to being a cunt to me for you so carry on since that seems to be your thing. Prick.

    and yet here you are sucking Musk's dick. I'm not busting on you for living in Iowa, I'm busting on you for the hypcocrisy of carbon shaming over idle engines and then busting on people mocking dickbags burning thousands of gallons on a whim.

    If you are advocating a carbon tax to save the planet, you are advocating burning the fuck out of carbon before teh tax is implemented.

    Wtf? I do not own Tesla stock, or own a Tesla. I busted on some guys advocating shorting the stock a long while ago and fuck if I wasn't right. I advocate for investing long generally, not having time or inclination to try to time trades. Tesla as a stock never interested me. I'd rather ride some Berkshire class B into retirement.

    I have sat in a Tesla 3 at a dealership here and I do think they are sweet and if they hold things together somehow I would consider one to replace our Prius.

    People idling in front of schools is stupid for multiple reasons. We have been over this. I usually walk to my girls school with the dog but if I do drive and go inside anywhere or sit anywhere I by habit do not idle.

    I do emit carbon in pursuit of making money for the company and pursuing my interests just like every other living person on the planet but I think there is a better way forward and for that I am a hypocritical white rhino cunt. Okay bro.

    I am a gray beard blue collar midwestern dad with a skiing addiction but I digress. Why are we still talking?

    Elon love is emblematic of the growing disconnect between sustainability and the destructive simulation. He's attacking the idea more so than anyone individually, it's just hard not to take offense & focus on the latter.

    What's the idea? Is it EVs in general or the combination of people with money driving EVs? Dunfee has argued for mass transit in lieu of EVs but barring everyone traveling on trains, buses, and bicycles everywhere aren't EVs a more realistic option?
