Recently I started driving an electric car. I pay nothing for gas. It has a range of around 25 miles, but round trip to work and back is only 15 miles, so I charge it exclusively at work. It has a top speed of 35mph and is classified as a “neighborhood electric vehicle”, but I drive on the back roads to work anyways, so no big thing. It is far from roomy, probably not very safe in an accident, but short of a box full of puppies trained to hug kittens, it is probably the best way to meet chicks I can think of. Being so small, you don’t even need a “no fat chicks” bumper sticker, cuz they look at it and realize they would likely get stuck in the door if they were to even try to fit in the tiny little passenger seat. Funny thing is, the hotties that flock to it whenever I park it assume I am some sort of environmentalist dipshit who wants to talk to them about how Hitlery should drop out of the race or how much money we are wasting in Iraq. I don’t bother explaining to them that I agree completely, but that it would be best if Obama joined her, and that a few nukes would save us tons of money in Iraq. They also all assume it is a “smart car”… sigh.
See, my little electric car looks like a shrunk down smart car to people who haven’t seen either one in person before. That isn’t a bad thing, but seriously, what is the point of the “smart car”. Yes, it can drive at freeway speeds, but who would want to fight with semi for a lane in that thing? The real issue though is that the little coffin only gets a tad bit better milage than a normal sized car, and it isn’t exactly cheap. Really, the only reason to buy it in my book would be for the chick magnet appeal.
My plastic deathtrap uses no gas, and did I mention that I don’t pay to charge it! If you want a new vehicle to combat the crazy gas prices, wait until they at least get 60mpg, or buy a motorcylce, because if you are going to be unsafe and you insist on still using gas like a cave man, you can at least look cool doing it. Trust me, nobody looks cool in these micro cars. If you are normal sized, you will look huge in them. If you are above average in size you will look like Andre the Giant in them. If you are a tiny little person that is comfortably scaled to something that size, everyone will just assume you are far away and always yell to talk to you!
