    Where is the link on that page that explains what they blow $8 Billion on?

    EDIT: And I'm one of the 4 that clicked the No button because I don't like odd numbers... I'm kidding... I didn't click it, but I do dislike odd numbers. I wish I was P#80 instead... ;)

    I think of the mob as the ultimate free market unfettered by regulations -- they're just making money as best they can.

    Late Edit: I'm veering off topic so will shut up now.

    Link to EPA budget
    EPA's Budget Execution and Resource Use | Planning, Budget, and Results | US EPA

    I can tell you stories about the NJ EPA you would not believe- kind of a WTF moment. When I was replacing my dock, they charged me a few grand to put new grass in that was destroyed during construction and buy it from a certain company, later found out that a state senator owned the company and was "harvesting" the same grass from a NY bay. So it's OK for someone connected to go to another state, destroy a habitat, burn gas driving it 200 miles to replace a few square feet of area that would have grown back eventually.

    Yes, I hate that kind of stuff too. But we're quite off topic at this point so we should create another topic.

    On topic -- looks like we won't find out the number of stars it'll get until the board gets done with the tests, maybe not for another year.

    I voted yes because I think that an EV is by definition safer since it has no ICE. This means more length of the car which can be used to absorb any violent crashes and less risk for people inside the cabin. In particular in the case of Model S the length of the car which can be used to absorb crashes is really big!
