Ahhhhh. So good to see a few history buffs around. Was wondering if folks would get it.
devildog – been through a few myself – thanks for the assumption that I have not.
My statement is that the media hypes the hell out of everything. And every Summer there seems to be worse and worse hurricanes only to not end up anywhere nearly as bad as they are often predicted. The same with blizzards in the Winter. Now they name every big snowstorm that comes through, and it’s often far less severe than it was pushed as being.
The only one I don’t see that happening to is tornadoes – and that’s because they can only predict the conditions that are wiped for one…….not if there will be one.
Hurricanes don’t scare me, blizzards either – you have prep time for it, often a few days……Tornadoes give a pucker factor of 10 to the infinity exponent.
He’s such a good “little boy”
The thing is, that teach of those questions does make one think.
You’re dating yourself.
I tell my children that they’ll learn far more from their failures than their successes.
Sadly people give up too easily on achieving their hopes, wants, and desires in life or profession.
kentmarx – wow. Not a conversation, just an insult. All one has to do is watch the weather.
I have two young children, and even they comment often about how wrong the weather forecasters are.
Maybe next time, we can have a mature, adult conversation. It’s doubtful that you will, however one can hope.
Daeder – it’s the repair cost. Not exactly cheap. Figure that many accidents of moderate force could damage a battery, and that’s a few grand alone.
When I checked around my neck of the woods, it was a couple grand a year just for that one car. If I recall correctly, I was paying $2,700 a year for 3 vehicles and it was almost equivalent in price.
But I do love the concept. If I could expand my house’s solar system to accommodate it I might actually consider one, but my roof is just about all taken up.
EdMeiller – President Trump is my President. I didn’t vote for him, however he is my President. Just as I didn’t vote for Barack Obama, but he was my President. If Mr. Biden wins in November he’ll be my President as well, even if I am not voting for him or agree with him. I won’t be voting for President Trump either.
If you live in this great nation – then he is YOUR President too. Whether you like it or not.
Keep trying to deflect.
