The indoctrination I have to go through sometimes...

I hope most of you have realized that missing backlinks are a feature of this blog, not a bug. So.... I'm not even going to say the name of this car. You can plainly see what it is.

I don't understand electric cars. Nothing says you have nothing better to do than having to charge your car for 30 minutes or more to use it. It takes less than five minutes to fill up my tank.

I don't understand SUV's either. I don't know why they are so popular right now other than it's hopefully the end of minivan purgatory. I was at a conference once and a guy said - if it weren't for women, the minivan would never exist. Which I thought was spot on.

I don't believe the bullshit they try to feed me when it comes to these cars.  It isn't that I don't think it's "a" sector. I just don't think that it's a viable sector without force and penalty.

I think we will look back one day at all these solar panels frankly effing up the landscape and laugh.

But the indoctrination rages on. If you knew what Silicon Valley was trying to do.....

These shots are purposely over exposed because while this is basically a boring minivan - it does have a forward facing camera in the Audi symbol. And I'm not sure what kind of lidar(?) they are using. I would have had to sit through more indoctrination to find out and the internet will eventually tell me.


  1. is that a camera in place of the side mirror??

  2. They sell these under the name environment, but to make one creates more waste and pollution than a regular car, for the whole lifetime service of that oh so caring vehicle.

  3. Good eye Ruth. Those are cameras, but they are not legal in the states yet.

    Dwan.... The whole thing is just crazy. Did you see they are putting panels over bodies of water now? How is that better than a little smog from time to time.

  4. how does that work? A screen infront of the driver instead?

  5. I'm actually not sure yet. But roughly I think yes, you will look at a screen instead.
