Not nearly as stupid as you, boy. If he acts 12, you must be 8.

The only thing more pathetic than a young person attempting to purvey
wisdom that is beyond his years is an aging hippie who should know
better -- but doesn't. (At least the young have an excuse for their
idiocy.)

Well, that leaves me out.  I'm as much of a Communist as you are a
fascist.


That leaves me out too.  I never got to be a hippie; I was too busy
being a soldier and saving your sorry ass from the Commie hordes.

If that is indeed the case your service is appreciated. (Of course anyone
can claim anything about themselves in this type of forum.)

However, having said that, I still believe your position is basically
a fetid pile of dingoes' kidneys.

In the case of the batteries, all batteries have a limited lifetime.

If the Prius is using some exotic type of battery, such as the
Ford sodium-sulphur battery, it is difficult to estimate how
long that lifetime will be. However, if it uses a type of battery
that is used commercially in other devices (such as lithium-ion),
we can have an idea of the useful battery life. (How long does
the battery in your cell phone last before it loses significant
capacity?)


Because it's a tin can with a complex, unconventional Rube Goldberg
drivetrain and thousands of dollars worth of batteries ready to crater?

It is certainly possible to drive vehicles with conventional
drivetrains over 300,000 miles, if you maintain them properly
it is the most economical way to drive.


Technology that has proven itself to be extremely reliable for decades.
Gearboxes of this type can easily last 50 years or more.


You misspelled "left-wing idiots."

How much energy was used, raw material used, and waste produced in the
manufacture of your "eco conscious" Prius, little one?
