    For this particular vehicle, I think the other half of that animal is more appropriate. IMHO it is, for a number of reasons, a pickup you should consider only if you have absolutely no need for a pickup.

    Migraine broke, now in postdrone and feel like barfing. Still hot. Back in bed with fan going full blast. Bleh

    Actually I just checked Innsmouth (note 2 n) doesn't have elder gods, just deep ones https://lovecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Innsmouth

    Gods, elder or otherwise? Unknown. (I am suspicious of any one claiming to be a God.) But everything is better down where it's wetter.

    And that's about the only point. Total life cycle carbon release is equal to or greater then a normal vehicle for less than 5 years. And that's not including the ecological disaster that lithium mining is.

    But the Lightning looks like any other F150. The point of an EV is to make everyone know you are driving an EV.

    It's common to date one maybe two year older or younger than you in high school, so that possible.

    Does it involve elder gods?

    If you want an electric pickup truck, you are probably better off going with the Ford F-150 Lightning.

    Not so much flashback but exposition as to seer's powers, granted via flashback

    "I'll think of something" - You are witnessing Dunning-Kruger in action.

    Maybe she's getting ready to spit at Camdin? Camdin knows Lucy, and it seems pony tail guy recognizes someone(s). Perhaps they were older boys in school in the past that Diane and Lucy dated? Hmm, he looks semi-normal when his head isn't wobbling all over the place. Still looks like a stoner, though.

    Even without an emergency situation, the doors are odd. He (owner) has trained me to push the proper button to open the door, and yes, if you had no power, that would not be an option. Note, though, my default option was a mechanical release; I don't think you'd need a manual to get out. It had more to do with manually opening would damage the window gasket. Just FYI though, for most automotive vehicles, immersing them in water is not recommended. Nor is setting them on fire, though, admittedly, I have experienced an unplanned external engine fire (external to the cylinders). I've owned some vehicles I would have like to set on fire, but I would not have been inside them at the time. Doing a software update while you are driving a Tesla sounds like a nomination for a Darwin award. However, since you can initiate the software update from the control panel which is inside the vehicle, I hope they allowed for exiting the vehicle during the update. Or are you expected to wait it out? You have me curious; I'll ask. I think you can initiate the update from a Tesla phone app. I've talked to maybe a couple dozen people about this, including this forum. You are one of a select few that doesn't think so. Esthetics are subjective, so I wouldn't say you are wrong, but your view seems to be an outlier. It's funny, and it kind of confirms my perception that the vehicle is impractical, also not always intuitive to use (see previous comment about doors). It is also sad, the bozo that bought it ought to be able to use it, and his desire to camp in it is not unreasonable. To be honest, I didn't know it had enough space that you could camp in it. I would not have guessed that was true. They are gouging. Very much so. If the Cybertruck sells, there will be a competing aftermarket. Given how few seem to be out there, it may not happen. If I were in the market for another truck, the Cybertruck would not be on my list. It has neither the convenient access of a pickup truck nor the roominess of a van; not even a soccer mom van. I see it competing in the SUV arena, where having more space may give it an advantage. The 'cyber'; in Cybertruck is hardly a positive. All motor vehicles built today are significantly computerized, just to meet pollution standards. Displays are electronic, it's cheaper than old school gauges. Tesla goes one step further by eliminating most of the displays and leaving you with one pad computer interface. It seems adequate, albeit without an actual dash display; certainly no heads up option at this time. The interface display is mounted on a pedestal, slightly tilted. It takes your attention off the road just a bit, not a good thing. Given the trouble we've seen with John Deere and the ability to repair your own equipment, I do not see the trend toward software dominated mechanics as an entirely healthy thing. The Air Force was very careful about tracking and applying software updates to their fleets, because they had to ensure compatibility with equipment acquired over decades. Manufacturers of consumer goods will not put in as much effort to tracking and testing compatibility with older models; it is a cost they want to avoid, and hey, if they break it, you'll need to buy a new one. It has already occurred that 'updates' have had to be backed out because they broke things. And you have less and less control over the 'updates'. An EV is sort of cheaper to run. If you use it for grocery trips and commuting, and recharge it off of home power, it works out cheaper than gas. If you take a longer trip, and have to charge at a station, it is in the ballpark of paying for gas. The up front costs are high, and the batteries are expensive and will have to be replaced eventually. It appears that EVs are not all that great for the environment, either, at present. Much of the negatives are from manufacturing the batteries. Taking a long trip is doable; I have friends that have done so fairly often. But it is nothing like hopping in your car and going. You have to plan your route and know where you are stopping to recharge. Planning your activities around the recharge time. Making sure you have the proper adapters with you. If your destination is not set up for you, you can still charge with an extension cord, but it will be s-sl-lo-ow-w . . . If I had an EV and a place to charge it, I could probably make due; most of my trips are within an hour radius. I would probably rent a more normal vehicle for an occasional long trip. Re: Tesla, I think they should use the front portion of a donkey, with his head turned toward you, grinning, as their logo, and change their name to half-assed motors.

    https://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/doubledate-038 Is Lucy supposed to do a Spit-Take in Panel Three? Because someone needs to let Dan know that Panel Three was cut off.

    "I'll think of something" Where's your homework? "I'll think of something" Do you have directions? "I'll think of something" Do you have the rent this month? "I'll think of something" What are you telling the cops? "I'll think of something" I know too many people like this. And the sad part is, some of them appear to be successful.

    If I understand the effect properly (and I probably don't), the spell doesn't show specifically what cards are held or what strategy the player intends. It only gives the user a symbolic representation of what their opponent is holding and associated tactical options. If you don't know what the Insmuth deck implies, well, maybe you can still sleep at night.
