hmmmmmmmm.  Your writings on this subject have shown yourself for what
you are.

But then, you write plenty of things about me--and others, no
doubt--without knowing the first thing.

I've never said "it's obvious you know very little about the Prius" to
someone I don't know and whose knowledge of the Prius I know nothing

You did, though.  Hmmmmmmm....you wrote of something you can't possibly
know and you did so with great conviction.  Hmmmmm....

You wrote of something you can't possible know and you did so with great

I wonder what that makes you....hmmmm......

Tell me, have you dug that hole deep enough to strike water yet?  I
imagine your feet HAVE to be wet by now, if not your knees.

Correct and the only additional item would be the humidity. But often my
climate options are:

1) AC - just the top vents. Cool air on the face allows warmer
temperature setting.

2) vents, no AC - this keeps the window open noise down making it easier
to listen to the radio

3) cycling AC, interior - keeps the windows from fogging in rain or high
humidity days

4) windows - when nothing good is on the radio or the outside smells are
so interesting

My personal taste is roughly 84 F. If it is warmer, windows only work if
at highway speeds. Once it reaches about 92 F., AC is pretty much
required or the heat becomes too fatiguing. But humidity and sun angles
have a lot to do with what works best.

Yeah.  Rolling down the window and trying it, or remembering what it was
like 5 minutes ago when you walked out to the car and got into it, has
absolutely zero value.

Go to the climate screen.  There are controls other than "auto" and they are
definitely useful, especially in cold climates where minimizing the use of
engine heat maximizes fuel economy.  If this is too complicated for you,
just push the "auto" button.
