Better safe than sorry.


I hate flying. I haven't been on an airplane since 1984. I'll only go on one if it's an overseas trip, or my Aveda points trip, hopefully next winter, to a spa in Antigua. I'm not afraid of heights, it's more about enclosed spaces with strange people in close proximity.

I don't like flying either, hate the disrespect from the lovely fed employees. It's a pain in the rear going through all that grief.

Looks like it wasn't a battery overcharge like they first were thinking.

It is failure of lithium ion batteries to operate at this high of capacities, this particular project is your tax dollars at work, more info to come.
Welcome the new Boeing Volt!
