His examples are not ridiculous. They are at the very heart of
environmentalistic thought, and are quite practical, besides.

I myself have personally witnessed a meteor strike a Prius being pushed by
a person who was then killed by a nearby car bomb detonation AND an
earthquake, all at once. Talk about coincidences...

By the way, the word "environmentalistic" contains seven robust syllables
(I counted) and is as long as a freight train, which excuses me from any
further interrogation on this matter.

I thought I had a pretty exhaustive list of the ways to propel a Prius
with kinetic energy. Ok, maybe I forgot the charging rhino.

Did you read far enough to realize I was supporting your point, or did
you get stuck on the first word of my post?

What is the rhino's charging voltage? If it's much more than 14.4VDC, he
could damage the car's battery.

I don't even wanna know where the positive cable goes...

Easily grounded, though.

Pre-'56 rhinos were positive ground. Get it crossed up and you could short
your rhino. The resulting sudden discharge of electrons could propel a
Prius quite a ways, I think.
