No it was the hot air you spewed that caused an upper air disturbance that fooled all those experts on climate change weather predictions. Now than you should cook your pate before you ingest it you’re swallowing too much bacteria.

O rly? You don't subscribe to the science regarding the general public health hazard created by 2nd-hand smoke?

Or are you perhaps letting your holy anti-big-corporate-oil jihadi mentality cloud your perspective just a little bit?

Honestly all signs say no, you won't regulate 'em - because "we" and "them" are the same self-centered booboisie that just re-elected a proven incompetent POTUS in return for patently childish promises of bread and circuses and eat-the-rich propaganda.

Politically, you have no hope with this mob of getting any high-minded regulation that's going to make any effective progress towards actually saving the planet. But if, as I suspect it is, your agenda is really more about scratching a personal bolshie/neo-Luddite anti-big-corporate ideological itch by carving chunk$ out of big OOIILLLLL!! then, yeah - this is just the mindless churlish mob, easily fooled, to do that with. Just don't insult our intelligence by dressing up this revolutionary political jihad as a science project.

Good hunting.

Smart Car ForTwo

"This diminutive model is small even by microcar standards and is woefully underpowered. It's saddled by an eccentric-shifting transmission, is largely impractical with only two seats and negligible trunk space and delivers a rough and noisy ride. On the plus side it’s able to park in roughly half the space of a normal car. It’s among the worst performing models tested by Consumer Reports, and takes a leisurely 14.6 seconds to reach 60 mph. Fuel economy is decent (but not spectacular) at 34/38 mpg city/highway; unfortunately the ForTwo requires premium-grade fuel, which tends to siphon off any financial savings at the pump." -Forbes

Not so smart car. Unless you live alone in a micro hut with your cat, do nothing and have nothing and want nothing in life. In other words, a great little golf cart with a roof for an under achiever and not an Einstein. lol.

Have you religious mmcc/cc zealots traded in your auto for a Smart car to walk your pontificating talk "to save the planet" yet?

No?

lol.

Nah. My 24 year old Festiva gets better mpg, has more room & a bit more crush space. However, one video shows the Smart Car can take a licking without crushing. Don't know if you'll survive a crash because of the g-loading, but Smart Car is tough.

Nothing new or revolutionary about the Smart Car - old wine in new bottles.

I've avoided 3 accidents in my small car that would have collected your truck. When jacked-up pickups get too close to me, I just drive underneath them & come out on the other side.

Don't have a 'jacked-up' pickup truck. Just a plain old C1500. Isn't anything dumber than a liberal with a superiority complex driving a tiny car. Going to lose in a wreck every time.

No. Since I avoided them, the other drivers weren't in accidents either.

Like you, two of the 'possible' accidents were truckdrivers thinking they could maneuver like sports cars. Yeah.... ego & no talent kill a lot of people. As the highway laws are now, you get a 'murder on the highway & get out of jail free' card.

Don't forget the Trilateral Commission and the international chemtrail conspiracy.

Anything to distract attention from the oil industry's skullduggery on climate science, right?
