    Well, apparently, if you get all the way to 10 then the punch is premeditated.

    Who runs flexible conduit on concrete? Well it's not as bad as the other cables direct in the concrete I suppose.

    CVT Transmissions

    This. I have the 2011 outback and if you want a tow car I don't think the CVT will hold up to too much abuse and If you want a performance car, manual would be the way to go. For a family car that is smooth to drive and good on gas the CVT option is a good one. They do seem a bit odd when you first drive them but you get used to it very quickly, my wife's standard automatic Corolla seems very old fashioned to me now with it's crude, lumpy gear changes.

    CVT Transmissions

    With a auto you still need the "slip" from the torque converter to smooth out the gear changes, although the later auto are locking the torque converter in the later gears. With a CVT you lock the torque converter up once the car is moving, so almost all driving is done without the slip and efficiency loss of the torque converter.

    She still looks wasted. Tell me how can a chick with legs that skinny still have fat ankles? Only the British chicks seem to be able to do that, never could figure out why.

    Oh. Also you do realize that if you drive a Prius you have to wear sandals and generally be a prick holding up traffic?

    For some stupid reason I can't upload the photo. I resized it and everything.. Temps here 2000Km away are lower than normal, no need for sunscreen, and the sun often looks red from the haze from the smoke. We are living under a blanket of smoke, well were yesterday, today is not as bad.

    And a chain brake. Not saying the dude is smart but it looks to me like the chain brake is on.

    Wind Power

    There are many pumped-to-storage hydro systems left over from the nuclear days which may benefit from off-peak wind power, too. From memory, (basicly I'm too lazy to look it up right now) I think that those pumped hydro systems are under 50% efficient. I don't really see that as an ideal solution. Of course, that's easy for me to say from a country with a lot of hydro options.
