Electric cars only need minimal maintenance like tire rotation, new wiper fluid and wipers, and a new air filter every few thousand miles. Other than that, they're really easy to maintain. Due to the use of regenerative braking, the brakes are known to last pass 100k miles.
Used Nissan Leafs for example cost less than $10k. You can charge your car with a wall outlet at home or use public chargers. Finally, they're just more fun to drive. It's like driving a powerful golf cart. Traffic isn't as much of a nightmare because at least you're regenerating power while everyone else wastes gas and pollutes the air.
I am posting this because I love my little Kia Soul EV and think more people should consider switching to an EV. EVs aren't for everyone but for me, it's just an easier and cheaper lifestyle overall.
Update: Keep in mind I'm referring to used cars not new ones. I traded my Prius for $20k and got a Kia Soul EV with the same miles on it for $15k. There are gently used Leafs for un... keep reading on reddit ➡
They apparently taste nothing alike, with Evian being the piss tasting shit tier.
I've had a colonoscopy (without pain relief) where they took biopsies. The doctors said the biopsies wouldn't hurt because the colon couldn't feel pain, and they were indeed painless. The amount of air they pumped in was horrifically painful however.
Trapped gas sounds trivial, but can also be extremely painful. Ulcerative colitis also hurts. So does diarrhoea.
So how do these pain mechanisms work? What causes the pain, if the interior of the colon is unfeeling?
I was getting gas for my Ambulance on the way back from the hospital. It's pouring out, there is no overhang at this gas station. I just want to finish and get back in my nice dry ambulance. I am in a uniform that clearly says "PARAMEDIC" on the back. A woman pulls up at the pump on the other side of me. Then i hear it, the clearing of the throat and the "excuse me". I turn around and for the first time behold an actual Karen. Red hair done like the Long Island Medium, makeup and nails done to the nines. Her face Often people will ask for directions or something else but no not Karen.
"$30 of premium and could you do me before you finish the ambulance I am in a hurry."
Me-"cashier is inside"
Karen- Well take my money inside then and pump my gas.
At this point my pump clicks off.
Me- That will be a no, I have to get back.
Karen- But But you are a public servant serve me, I don't want to get wet.
Me - Have a nice day.
I get in the ambulance and drive off and can' m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Writing a novella and I had the idea for space elevators at these moons, but I wanted to check the hard science first, and I can find very little to no research on this online.
I went inside to pay and saw two policemen in the store. I said "Did you guys see that woman out there?" They looked outside and suddenly darted out the door. I turn and see she caught her arm on fire.
The policemen threw a blanket around her and wrestled her to the ground and put out the fire. Then they gave her a ticket!
After they came inside I asked why they gave her a ticket. Turns out she didn't have a license for that firearm.
Yo does DE realize how utterly bad the damage multipliers for gas damage are? and how quickly enemies die in general? This has been the worst trade deal in history they even nerfed magnetic so gas magnetic went from trash to sewer tier.
I figured since everything that breathes and doesnt have a respirator suffocates when trenches are flooded with mustard gas or other chemical weapons, it might kill all the rats and lice in the trench. Was this the case?
A quick Google search shows that 142 billion gallons of gas was used in the US last year. So that means a 50 cent drop in prices at the pump puts over 70 billion dollars back in consumers pockets that they can now spend. Not to mention the costs of transportation of goods goes down, which should raise profits for consumer goods companies.
Yet Monday's falling stocks was partly blamed on the drop in oil prices (in addition to the virus). Also a few years ago when gas was $3 - $4 a gallon, then it fell to around $2, I would have expected an uptick in the economy then but it didn't seem to materialize.
Pressing the 2nd button from the top on the right side of the console will almost always mute the advertisements played while you wait for your tank to fill.
