Beiber has so much to learn about getting older :P He's a kid who has had a silver spoon is his mouth for a while now so he just doesn't understand yet.

It was a quote from Justin Bieber about the UK's Prince William losing his hair: "I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over there?"

Hate that everything that comes out of that kid's mouth is considered news. Blech.
I'm ok with whenever you want to post it. I like reading it.
And I have to agree with the Bieber statement. He's a teeny bopper's dream, not a doctor or spokesperson.

Saw something on the road here in Alabama last night that I honestly never thought I would see here. It had a local tag so that was even more strange that it wasn't someone from somewhere else just driving through. A Tesla Roadster Just spent nearly 2 weeks on the west coast and didn't see a single one, but get back home and see one within a week. Crazy.

I actually see quite a few Volts on a regular basis here. But a $110,000 Tesla Roadster?? Wow! Told my wife when we saw it that I'd give up my pinky finger for one of those....I then backtracked upon the realization that I do use my pinky sometimes...I figure an appendix would be a fair trade though.

The only electric car that has ever interested me, mainly because it has enough range to get to work and back...

I just saw my first Volt the other day. Didn't seem too special. Runs on coal instead of gasoline.

I live literally down the street from the Tesla factory here in Fremont, CA. I see them quite a bit, but mostly in what's called the "Ruby Hill" area of Livermore, CA - rich people, wineries etc. I spend a lot of time there since that's where my girlfriend lives and these guys are on highway 84 all the time trying to pass the normal folk.

Yeah, I actually am very interested in the Model S. Even the base model at 160 mile range would be nice. No oil changes, no gasoline. I know there are other inherent maintenance costs with electric vehicles, but the gas and oil elimination every month would free up enough money to justify the extra monthly payment over a typical new car.

Depends on where you live. Here in doodah with coal fired plants, it's debatable. In the northwest with hydroelectric power, absolutely.

I've seen quite a few volts in the NY/NJ area. Nothing fancy and no one seems to look twice at them though. I'd love a Tesla though.

My friend just posted this to Flickr of another friend's car - love this shot.

I understood your comment and appreciated the sarcasm Pup! I would love an electric or assisted electric like the Volt or Leaf, especially if my plant would put in some charging stations in the parking lot. I only have a 35 mile round trip commute to work so I could make it here and back, but charging here every day would be nice and I could say my car was nuclear powered

Yeah, it's about time, Nuke is such a great power option, and while I haven't bought into the whole global warming issue, I won't debate lower emissions aren't a bad thing.

Haven't tried it. Looks like something my wife could use. I don't visit retail stores much.

Honestly don't say this to offend Penn State fans or anything, but it's in the news today and kind of bothers me. The news that the board members at Penn State intend to appeal the NCAA sanctions as well as the general defiant attitude shown by some of the fan base goes to show that the penalty wasn't severe enough. If you can honestly sit here and say that Penn State didn't deserve the punishment, then I'm afraid you have problems. It once again shows that they are putting Penn State football above all else.

This thought occured to me this morning when I heard about this. The nuclear industry has a regulatory body called the NRC. They levy fines and provide oversight and inspections to the nuclear industry. In general, their top priority is to judge whether or not your company/plant is putting money/production first or the health and safety of the surrounding general public first. If they see a negative trend, they provide oversight and fines. If they determine that you absolutely are more concerned with money/power production than you are operating safely, they shut you down till you prove you have changed your mentality.

Lets equate that to the NCAA and colleges they provide oversight to. I know the NCAA is a corrupt organization, but in general (in a round about way) they try to protect the kids being recruited to the schools as well as the public by attempting to prevent corrupt uses of money (let's be honest, they aren't interested in creating a level playing field). Penn State, by hiding the facts and harboring Sandusky to protect their image did not have the safety of the kids or general public in mind in that selfish decision. The problem with Penn State wasn't Sandusky. It was those above him who found out yet did nothing and that permeated SEVERAL layers of administration that was not limited to football.

If the NCAA were the NRC and Penn State were a nuclear plant, they would be shut down indefinitely. Why do we think it's ok for them to continue operations because they are a football team?

I only follow the Atlanta Braves when it comes to any pro sport. I casually follow any pro team that has former players from my university. The Pats have one in Kyle Love. The Eagles have a couple in Fletcher Cox and Jamar Chaney. Ravens have a couple, 49ers, Bills, Seahawks,...that's all that come to mind immediately.

I don't disagree. My only beef is with the taking of way of wins from all those kids that played their hearts out. And for most of us, JoePa will always be the coach with the most wins.

Yeah, I don't buy into global warming either, but if it weren't for all the overhead that is necessary because of government involving construction, licensing, etc....nuclear would be insanely cheap. It's still one of the cheaper if not the cheapest option even with all that. And cutting down on pollution is still a good thing even if you don't buy into global warming

I honestly don't care about the wins. To me, they could have left them and I would have been fine with it. It still doesn't change the fact that they won those games and Joe Pa is the winningest coach. Had a lot of respect for the man until his final few months and all of this. Morals and judgement aside, he was still a legendary coach. The fines and stripping of wins were image and PR attempts by the NCAA. I wish they hadn't imposed those and just killed off the athletics department for a couple of years. Force PSU to clean house in that area. To me, the appealing of the sanctions says they still have that mindset and still don't understand the gravity of what they contributed to. That means they need stiffer penalties....just my $0.02.

Awesome, I wonder how well that will play with this generation. When it was first released it touched on a real fear that many in America had being the height of the Cold War.
