    Like Jeff Dunham’s "Walter" says, when a Prius owner drives by: "Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii’m-Gayyyyyyy!"
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Not to mention that the increased charge/discharge cycles will further reduce the lifetime of the battery.

    Isnt solar panel production/disposal notoriously hazardous to the environment and much more environmentally costly than the minuscule energy savings they provide?

    Same for the batteries in these "environmentally friendly" cars. Nickel mines are toxic for miles and miles around.

    The prius uses recycled nickle.
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    It's still coming from somewhere. Nickel is used for a lot of things.
