    Just heard this infuriating segment on the latest episode of the Adam & Dr. Drew Podcast in which Dr. Drew parrots back the long tailpipe myth. One of the staff (Adam wasn't present) jumped in and said he had heard that too. Together they wonder why this information hasn't been fully absorbed by the general public, but they hope the message will spread.

    The public is busy absorbing all the other stuff about the sun circling the earth, creation of the world in seven days (or were it six?), harvesting magnetic energy from water and so on.

    Sadly, this is entirely too true:

    At least everyone is over that whole "the Earth is flat" thing, right?

    What? Haven't you seen the documentary called Erik the Viking? There you can clearly see the Viking ship falling off the edge of the world!

    Someone needed to introduce them to external combustion and combined cycle power plants.

    PS. On second thought, maybe they need to learn how long it takes the earth to complete its orbit first.

    It doesn't matter what those petrol heads say or what people believe. In the end, the performance will get 'em. Just one time behind the wheel and it's alllllllll over.

    (You don't think Bill O'Reilly had a change of heart because he studied up on the issue, do you? No. Of course not. I'll bet anyone here he's either taken delivery of a Model S or will shortly - and his whole tirade on Fox about how it's American to get behind Tesla was completely self-serving. See? Doesn't matter. The performance gets to everyone.)

    :)

    C'mon, Adam Corolla?! Really scraping the bottom of the news-source barrel here.

    Maybe it was too bad Adam was stuck in traffic (must not have carpool stickers on his gasser)...
