This is another piece on the Volt.

Quote of the day: Volt is three cars in one!
According to LuvmyVolt, apparently.

LuvmyVolt's posts make me angry.
Truth be told, I've felt angry since the first day here.
On the contrary, I find his posts and many of his analogies smart and educational.
You see, what goes on here is important in the grand scheme of our lives.
As a homosexual Canadian man I take it in the ass daily.
These forums should be looked upon as a big book of knowledge.

My frequent emotionally charged outbursts are highly entertaining, but in terms of importance, I need my wife to have a bananna.

The same applies to Root's heterosexual pathetic attempts to control the agenda here.

Truth be told I love the Volt.

Witness the above.
When all else fails, Root resorts to the copycat/homophobic/ sexual fantasy syndrome.
What motivates Roott to function at such a pathetically low level ?

Witness all of the above.
When all else fails, Root resorts to the copycat/homophobic/ sexual fantasy syndrome. This excites me as a gay Canadian man. He is a sick heterosexual.
What motivates Roott to function at such a pathetically low level ?
What motivates Roott to act so homophobic?
What motivates Roott to be so anti-homosexual?

I am pround of being a gay man here in Canada. I do what I want. If I want to dress my nephew like a girl I will. If I want to talk about my wife's sex change to a man I will! If I want to talk about sticking bananas up orrifices I will. Roott will not control the conversation with pathetic attempts.

Volt is the best car in the world. It saves millions of gallons of gas. Volt is the best thing since the pocket rocket.

To Root and all his username "associates".....
You're working quite diligently, attempting to intimidate, perhaps hoping that your imposter Beagle spamming campaign will cause yours truly to leave.
Quite entertaining, but....
Sorry to disappoint.
Still here.

It's always nice to be needed.
But if you need someone, then launch dozens of spammed imposter posts at that someone (most of which are vulgar, gross, and insulting), what's the point?
What do you hope to accomplish with all that silliness?

We've been over this 100x. You and your posts are important. Will Volt remain top dog or will the Leaf finally get the crown?

Simple trivia for the Volt. I find it fun to wager on occasion and with such a tight race it makes it fun.

Was it Shakespeare who coined the phrase: "Much ado over nothing"?

Betting on cars is for kids.

Now, if we're talkin' serious wagering, which country is gonna win gold in the World Junior Hockey tournament---Canada or Sweden?

(Pssstt---Team USA got knocked out of the round robin competition today by Canada 3 to 2!!)

They are also known as smiles per gallon because we tend to smile when we drive by a gas station.

It's very much only a concept car at this stage.
It has a gasoline engine, a solar charging device, and a battery.
The "sun-ray concentrator" charging system was developed by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and uses what is known as a Fresnel lens, which concentrates light but can be made thinner than a conventional lens.
A full day of sunshine is equivalent to a four-hour battery charge, or 8 kilowatts. It also has a plug-in system for conventional charging
On a full charge, it could have a range of 620 miles (998 km), including 21 electric-only miles. The concept car also comes with a plug-in port for standard electric charging.

Pay no attention to Root.
He's just doing his thing--keeping the pot stirred.

If only you had not written the cheap shot at the end, your post would've been perfect.
