I'm repeating what you're saying.

That you don't like seeing that in the light of day, is your problem.  
But it doesn't change the fact that you're saying random, false things,
pulling them out of thin air.

Well that is a lie.

Actually I enjoy re-reading my own posts. Especially when they are
about the best car on the market today, the Prius.

"The Prius is a superior car because it has a catalytic converter, and
doesn't emit carbon monoxide."

You may want to deny that's what you said, but it is what you said.

Stick your head in the sand all you want.

Quoting out of context, what a silly thing to post. You are so
transparent and useless. You just can't stand the truth that the
superior Prius is both the most efficient car on the road today but
also a very safe, emergency power source. It is much safer than a gas
generator and more practical. So after power was restored, I unplugged
the Prius to run errands and commute to work.

Think about what a difference a population of Prius and other hybrids
with 1-1.5 kW, AC power could have made for any of the recent

1) lights - so recovery work can proceed after sunset.
2) communications - recharging cell phones but also TV and radio
3) heating and cooling - so people can rest at night without freezing
or sleep without heat exhaustion
4) refrigeration - so we can eat the food we have and not be so
dependent upon bringing in early food stocks

We use Prius power about once per year for various durations. Wind
storms have knocked down power lines in the summer and we slept in an
air conditioned bedroom in 80F weather. Ice storms have knocked down
power lines and we have run the gas furnace to stay warm, something
important for my wife. Equipment failures have taken the power and we
simply plugged-in to our Prius. In each case, we've had broadcast TV
and radio to learn more about the extent of the emergency. And each
power outage has taught lessons that are inevitably leading us towards

Those were your words.  Denying that is beneath you.

That you had to be corrected by someone who knows the facts, such simple
facts, tells all about your grasp of simple facts.
