    The Prius Thermos

    So THAT'S what the thermos is for. I've been using it for my coffee!

    My Prius

    IIRC, I paid around 23-24K in December '04 for my 2005 Prius. It had a couple of options which added around $1000 to the price, and I didn't have to pay a markup (I did have to wait 11 months,...

    Prius

    Funny, I can't get a sheet of drywall in my Prius, either. But it does accelerate like a M.F. from a dead stop, which works for me in my urban environment. On a road trip to South Carolina, I got...

    Greenhouses

    Greenhouses work by preventing Convection-based heat loss into the atmosphere. But the Earth cannot gain or lose heat by convection since it is in space, which has precious little mass. It can't...

    Great Global Warming Swindle

    Terry,

    Yes, it's a very interesting program. It is somewhat biased, but it makes some important points, and highlights the other side of the argument that is usually suppressed for political...

    Cass,

    Presumably with water in short supply, people will be dehydrated and will pee less. It's a self-limiting problem!
    Personally, I think it's lawns that are the bigger offender.

    Well, as a Democrat, I'll grant that the choice we were given in 2004 was less than scintillating, from both parties.

    And I'll also agree that - given that an absence of evidence is not evidence...

    Nobel Prize? Bah!

    I'm not so impressed with Al Gore's Nobel Prize. #1) It's totally political - it's just about bashing Bush. #2) It's an honor he shares with Yasser Arafat, which is not really very good company. ...
