In that vein, and because this made me think about it, maybe I should give up on the electric car and sell it. It needs replacement batteries. The ones I got would require time and effort to modify the battery racks, and I don't have the money now unless I sell those to buy ones which will fit... and I'm having no luck selling those. I'd love to be able to use it, and I think it would be environmentally smart, but maybe it would be smarter to just shed all of my possessions, really, and move somewhere and when I am financially better off, try again. I could try to make environmental amends with carbon credits in the meantime.
Further in that vein: Anyone want to buy a soda fountain, cheap?
