    To go along with all the perpetual motion crackpot ideas that showed up on the TM blogs (generators on the wheels - wind turbines on the hood), I got a kick out of the headline on this news story today:

    Those with the leather seats will have to stop to recharge while those who opted for the Microfiber can recharge while they drive!
