Looks like a few of us owe you $1 and Danica is headed to the owner's box at Lambeau field. 

 

That turn 2 caught out a lot of even better drivers -  that rear wing was like wearing only a napkin in a snow storm.

Danika just traded one ugly green uniform for another ugly green uniform. GO BEARS

Fixed it for you.

 

Oh ya, Bears record the last 10 years versus Packers, won 4, lost 16. 

 

Overall record since 1921, Green Bay Packers lead series 96-94-6. Pretty incredible 102 games latter!!!

Not many teams or fans thereof would admit to 4 recent losses to the Bears.

Looking at it another way, for many years I've had breakfast bets with two Bears fans and the last 10 years that's called 80% free eating after the Bears games. :scratchchin:

Recent losses are history. McCarthy, what are you doing for me this year.

Damn, I ain't bought nuting from you for a couple years, you continue to be the man. Last thing I bought was a pair of front rotors. Told Brian first track session and the brake pedal was pulsating after I'd just installed new pads, Brian, put these (rotors) on and issue will be gone. Score one for Brian. Guess it's been more than a couple years.

Better yet, buy a Chevy Bolt or "recycle and reuse" a preowned Chevy Volt, and use the savings to feed the hungry, or help fund a climate project that has a chance of solving the problem.  Howard Hughes II seems a little too busy putting Lambo doors on SUVs, making flamethrowers, and shooting effigys into space, but I realize the Cool Kid Bonus Points of a Tesla are hard for many to ignore :)

 

If you've never driven an electric car, you have no idea what you are missing.  I've had 3 so far, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Spark EV, and a Model 3.

 

And there are some serious turds too - the Leaf is a soul sucking depressing car that should be only driven by people eager to experience depression.  The Spark is a crap can with hard seats and a terrible interior - but it makes up for it with 325 ft. lb of torque that makes it thoroughly entertaining to drive.  Roasted the front tires with only 18K on the car.  The 2014's had 400 ft. lb of torque (different battery suppliers) - car is a hoot to drive.  But both of commuting appliances at the end of the day.

 

And the Model 3 is just plain amazing - again 100% torque at 0 rpm is something you have to experience.  I drove a Model S in 2014 for the 1st time - it completely destroyed every assumption I had about EV's.

 

EV's are not only coming, but they are the proper car for the vast majority of use cases (think commuting appliances generally).  ICE cars will still have their place - I can't stand watching Formula E.  Racing and performance cars are still about the smell and sound.  But with millennials who don't bother getting their drivers' licenses, they don't care about cars the way a generation ago did.  ICE cars will be a relic soon - that makes me personally sad, but it is a reality.

 

And don't get me started on autonomous vehicles - that train is coming faster than anyone can imagine.

 

I've driven many electric cars, but if you haven't understood my main point, you *might* have no idea what you *might* be missing :).  If I reiterate my point that a true environmentalist and humanitarian might buy a Chevy Bolt or a used Chevy Volt, and give the $30-80K excess to the poor and hungry (versus a brand new Tesla Status Symbol that is driven by a >99.9%-ile Carbon Emitter living in Silicon Valley and feeding his rescue dogs organic fairtrade non-GMO avocado pistachio almond smoothies), I think you'll see where I'm coming from when it comes to the "True Environmentalist SATs", which are much different than the "Faux Environmentalist Popularity Contest Power Rankings".

 

Tesla … a product brought to you by the modern-day Howard Hughes, who approximates my 12 year old self, if I had been a 12-year-old billionaire (i.e. shooting personal cars and varsity jackets into space, playing with rockets and flamethrowers and full-scale R/C cars, and threatening to take his ball and go home during earnings calls because his investors had the audacity to ask him about his own months-old smacktalk?).

 

Might as well let VW/Audi/Porsche buy whatever remains of the company that brought you a crossover with Lambo doors.  Nobody seems to care what VW/Audi/Porsche does to the environment.

 

Let's revisit this thread in 2020 :)
