Silly hybridiots.

Truck didn't want to start today, just needed a battery jump... other than that it was uneventful...
...got into work and there's 7 cars in the lot. Evidently we called a snow day for this.

1. The view from the cockpit must be 100% engine. I don't think he could see the "trail" if he had to.

2. How does that thing not over heat? I don't see much room for coolant on it.

3. I wouldn't stand within 700 yards of that thing while that flat billed yayhoo is 'driving' it. He has no freaking idea where it's going next.

4. I must admit it would be fun to take it for a spin for a few minutes anyway.

I've said it before, I'll say it again...power is over rated. (And I love power!!!) Can't do anything with it if you can't transfer it to the ground!

Unfortunately there's a good many Razr drivers think they're Tim Cameron and do similar damage.
