    Electric Cars - help me understand

    Serious projection. The way things are going, shoes are going to be a bigger form of transportation a few years from now than cars.

    Williams Mug Shaving Soap

    I only bought 24 pucks and get about 200 shaves/puck.

    Electric Cars - help me understand

    There is another option available in our area. I haven't seen the contract, but I did listen to the sales pitch. There is a company in our area that will install solar panels on the house for free. The owner gets as much free electricity as they use. The installers get the profit from the excess...

    Electric Cars - help me understand

    Now, you are comparing heating with gas to electric. Gas is better unless a person has a solar roof. I can't speak factually about subsidies. I can only speak factually about what I've experienced, and then I give my own spin because I'm 68 years old and expected to do that.

    Electric Cars - help me understand

    All the more reason to have an electric car. Few people will need to recharge every day. They will start in the coldest weather. The defroster is virtually instant-on, so your windows won't fog up in cold weather. Your battery never goes dead. I never have to stop for gas in cold or hot or any...

    Electric Cars - help me understand

    I'm not trying to convince anyone to use an EV. There are many considerations. My main ones are I seldom leave town; I have another car; the price was the same as a comparable gasoline car. Assume I drive 100,000 miles in the next ten years in my Nissan Versa. It gets 25 mph. Assume all prices...

    You are right. EVs aren't for everyone. Four out of five Calif residents have kept their EVs if your statistic is correct. Truthfully, I don't look to California for the standard on anything. Their power problems have many causes besides EVs. Emotional appeals are pretty useless in getting to...

    You can start virtue signaling when your carbon footprint is smaller than mine. My son and I average fewer than 400 KW/hr of electricity a month including the electric car. How about you?

    Electric Cars - help me understand

    Today, I spoke to a woman who has a Tesla. She said she'd never go back to gasoline. She drove here from NY and had no problem finding charging stations. It takes about 90 minutes to get a full charge. I have a Chevy Bolt. The realistic range on a full charge is about 150 miles, which leaves...

    I have a Chevy Bolt. I got it before the big price jump. My son's work is off the grid with solar power. He recharges there for free. It's great if most of your trips are around town up to about 35 miles a day with an occasional 150-mile day. We have a gas car for long trips. We get a minimum...

    YMMV - Is there such a thing as objective truth in shaving?

    Williams Mug Soap is objectively the best. YMMV.

    2021 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Shave Trek

    I'm on my second blade of the year. First was an Astra SP. Second is a Dorco that came with something years ago. The Dorco is a pleasant surprise. It was milder than the Astra in the beginning, and after about 60 shaves, it still cuts well and is smooth. This should be a three-blade year. I'm...
