"Gene and the Machine - The shocking truth about the electric Volt"

Perhaps the best auto review of all time.

So this won’t be a conventional automotive review. First, I’m not qualified to write a conventional automotive review, inasmuch as I know next to nothing about automobiles. Second, I am nakedly biased. I very much wanted to hate this car. It challenges my worldview.

Life is bewildering — essentially, it’s a fatal disease of uncertain course and unknown duration. If we are to make any sense of it, if we are to tame our existential terrors, we must gratefully cling to those few established truths on which we know we can rely: Day follows night. Sex causes babies. To lose weight, eat less. American cars suck.

[old, and been sitting in my too-read 'pile' long-enough that I can't figure out who first linked me to it, but still worth a read]
