Remember When The Joker Drove A Hydrogen Powered Car?

I’m digging back into the archives a bit because with all the talk lately of hydrogen-powered vehicles, it’s really funny to remember that Jack Nicholson had one. In 1978.

Back then, the oil embargo was an even more giant inconvenience than today’s high prices. You actually had to wait in line for the stuff — and even then only if your license plate ended in an odd or even number depending on the day.

Leave it to Jack Nicholson to pull up in a modified Chevy running on hydrogen to prove to everyone how possible it was not to depend on oil companies for energy. Even more surreal — the hydrogen was created using electricity supplied by solar panels. All this — from over thirty years ago!

“It’s like a standard Chevy,” the actor said then. “I backed it up, you know, because the last time the auto industry tried to destroy an independent industrialist, they said a “Tucker” wouldn’t back up. Remember that?” Well no, Jack, not exactly. Nicholson went on further, “If nothing else, this will revolutionize car-assisted suicide. Instead of carbon monoxide poisoning, you’ll just get a steam bath…”

Imagine where we’d be today if we had diversified our energy sources and listened to Jack? Can we afford another 30 years of “Remember When”?

This week in the veganverse IV

Wonder why everyone is so concerned with vegan underwear, hot dogs, and how we’ll celebrate Easter? Me too! It’s this week in the veganverse, round four.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
