Still not in my world...

Puff piece on electric cars going on the TV in the next room. The newsreader is breathless about how new models will change everything, since some of them have a range of two hundred miles!

Hey that's great; that'll get me halfway to Knoxville, leaving me a sad panda somewhere around Lexington, Kentucky. I could get a hotel room and plug in, of course, turning a five-hour drive into a two-day slog.

Thing is, I gas up the Bimmer in Lexington anyway, since it's well below the half-tank mark by that point. But that full tank takes five minutes and usually covers all my driving around in Knoxville for the week I'm there, too.
