Bear in mind that many Commonwealth countries that have Liz as head of State may review that shortly, as she's clearly running out of steam and nobody really believes that Charles is a suitable replacement.

The royal family is the Common Wealth's version of the cardassian family. 

Supposedly the cardassian family show is being cancelled due to low ratings. Many news networks refuse to cover them.

Maybe the UK / Commonwealth nations will cancel the royal family once the sequel comes out.

My apologies to the fine Cardassian  people for comparing them to the royals.

Rapper Bryson Gray’s “Let’s Go Brandon” song mocking President Joe Biden has soared to #1 on the iTunes Charts, ranking above pop superstar Adele’s latest single.

Funny...I thought Woke Biden would be hip with the young rap crowd....cause you know, Trump was such a racist and terribly unpopular with the same crowd for decades.

I don't give a toss if someone posts mean tweets while trying to execute reasonably sane policy. 


The current furor of the moment with the Biden admin is how the Fed Chair is proposing taxation on capital gains that haven't been realized yet. 

ie, they pump money into the economy via the printing presses, your 401k stock/mutual fund portfolio then becomes worth $800,000 vs the $500,000 it was 2 years ago, thus you owe them taxes on the $300,000 you 'made' on your 401k program.... Never mind you've cashed NOTHING out yet and not converted it to $$$ yet. 

No word on if your stocks lose value that they'll send you back a payment to cover your 'losses'.

Renowned mechanical engineer Joe Biden on electric car efficiency;

“When you buy an electric vehicle, you can go across America on a single tank of gas, figuratively speaking.”

While the statement is wrong on many levels, obvious and not-so-obvious, there might be one angle from which it's not entirely wrong - if you compare the price of a filling for a large tank (of the most expensive type of gasoline) with the industry price for electricity and the Ampere hours that you might load into the electric car for the full distance, assuming you take the most efficient route at constant 60mph at a time of the year that isn't so cold to reduce battery capacity, and not so hot that you need airconditioning.

Not that I want to defend the guy, but this might come close, strictly price wise, and the tangled wiring in his brain might just have combombulated figures from a briefing paper enough to create this output.

There is technology where you can, in theory, recharge electric vehicles at traffic lights. The only question is whether you really want to, or whom pays for it.

 

What could go wrong with that, hundreds of volts of electricity flying around?

But you also have to take into account the huge upfront cost of the electric vehicle, especially the batteries.

And their rather short life span. It is said that electric cars are only greener than conventional ones once thy have run for more than 100,000 km. Some say way more depending on how green the electricity is.

Word coming out of the Vatican is that investing in Kimberly-Clark, parent company that makes Depends adult diapers, would be a good move.  Supposedly Biden's meeting with the Pontiff ran over time so that his soiled shorts could be attended to.

Inevitably there will be a crossover point if one is more expensive and also more efficient. 100,000 km isn't a huge distance for such a crossover - less than 5 years motoring on pre-COVID averages and well within the expected lifetime of such a vehicle.

If that time period is true, though, it means that the first owner doesn't really gain an economic benefit from fuel use 9although they would in many places have lower annual taxation fees). I wonder if there is an online resource that does all the work for estimating this, even if one uses the simplistic EPA averages for fuel consumption. (I don't wonder enough to go looking, though.)
