Wouldn't you know it...

Kalgash Kalgash writes  |  about 8 years ago

I finally 'submit' an article via my journal and wouldn't you know it... it gets accepted. Only I made the submission on a lark thinking it wouldn't get posted because of its extremely trollish nature. Wouldn't you know it... any trolling was thoughtfully removed by kdawson.

Thanks kdawson. /stated without sarcasm

I will note that I got offtopiced to 0 for the first post attached to the post. YAY me. Mission accomplished.


Ford Airstream Electric Concept Car

Kalgash Kalgash writes  |  about 8 years ago While GM wants to simply offer cosmetic changes to automobiles interiors and exteriors, Ford has finally gotten the message about electric autos. They have introduced the Ford Airstream, a plug-in hybrid which gets gasoline equivalent fuel economy rating of 41 mpg, but uses hydrogen fuel cells that can keep the auto going up to 280 miles range. From a styling POV, it is not a tesla, but it is also not a 6000 or a cavalier. From the Autoblog article: 'The fuel cell, made by Ballard, turns on automatically when the battery charge dips below 40 percent. With the on-board charger (110/220 VAC), the battery pack can be refilled at home. Ford says the HySeries Drive is 50 percent smaller and less complex than conventional fuel cell system and should have more than double the lifetime.'"

MOD Points Request

Kalgash Kalgash writes  |  more than 8 years ago I posted this in the DVR story. Anyone got some mod points to burn to get me an upmod? If so thanks.


A Standard Reply: Responding to Complaints on Verbing Nouns

Kalgash Kalgash writes  |  more than 8 years ago Whenever I see someone say this I will insert this comment:

Language changes to suit a society's needs and values. Fixed definitions and spellings of words is a recent (150 years) development. Verbing nouns is popular and accepted tactic in western society. All your protestations to the contrary will not modify this behaviour.

Voting Time

Kalgash Kalgash writes  |  more than 10 years ago If you are Canadian, of legal age and meet several other minor requirements today is the day to vote. Get out to your polling station and do your duty. If you don't have a voter registration card, only minimal identification is required to vote.

See http://www.elections.ca for details.

20 minutes to vote.
4 years to wish you had.



Kalgash Kalgash writes  |  more than 10 years ago I finally got my first +5 post ever. See here.

Although the way the mod points are dealt out lately my dead dog could get a +3 with very little trouble.
