    I still do, though I'm not sure I'm in the proper space-time continuum anymore.

    I'm on council at our townhouse/bungalow condo.
    My task this month is to look into the costs of installing level 2 chargers in 18 of the 19 dwellings.
    Eighteen because we have one already. We are the only ones in our complex with an EV.
    But everyone I have spoken with say that their next vehicle will be an EV.
    Not a hybrid, but an EV and soon.
    When this interview was taped EV's were a novelty, not anymore.
    A couple of weeks ago on a run back from the town 22 k from our's I counted 11 Teslas on coming and probably as many Chevy Bolts like our's.
    I say probably because I lost count.

    Most certainly.
    Had such a thing been, 11 years ago, I'm certain I'd have opted for it. But at the time, not only were the vehicles quite a bit more than the current expensive, there wasn't anywhere to charge them. The only remaining issues are a "convenient" correlation between range and charge time.

    Or hydrogen.

    Don't know for sure but I'd say probably a silk-core wound string for classical guitar.
    Could be nylon core I guess, though I wouldn't expect nylon to be so finely stranded.
    Certainly doesn't look to be an electric string though.

    It's a Scanning Electron Micrograph of a silk wrapped classical string in "false" color (electrons are color blind...because they are outside of visible wavelengths) made by David Scharf. Though it isn't quite microscopic, rather...macroscopic would be more accurate.
    Anyway, some really nice macro and micro-graphs on his website
    http://www.scharfphoto.com/
    and the best part is he is happy to share them as long as he's credited.

    I was studying his work when I was a student learning to drive an electron microscope in the late 70's...
