    I've just realized something very ironical; if I actually had money to spare, I'd donate to the people who serve us mangas for free. Sounds funny, huh?

    ^^well, I've donated money to this site with the premium membership. And would donate in manga if I was more hardcore about it. Imagine people donating money for the spoiler providers... man, you and shani would be rich xD

    ^ driving manual, ehh?? I thought does were non-existent in the US...
    but yeah, bike is the way to go =D

    No way, I support buses and subways.
    etufo: HS is most likely going to die sooner or later. Who will kill the cool character killer?

    Popo: well, obviously going by that logic, HS will have to kill himself...

    ^^Not at all. I know many people who drive manual, including the 5 other people at my work who have mustangs (mines the oldest and biggest gas hog). Yeah, we waste too much gas in America, so I feel riding my bike 5 miles to work and 5 miles back will not only save me moeny and help the gas crisis, but help keep me in shape as well.

    ^Public transportation in California is about as aweful as it could get. Mostly cause their barely is any.

    Figured it out. Neat car, nice hood. Guess it swallows gasoline like a truck.
    Just fyi, the gas price in germany is currently 9,47 Dollars per gallone... for real

    I use public transport and go by plane if I visit my parents... Guess we'll face some diversification in transport if it keeps like that...

    ^not really, the cost for producing H2 is either to high(in alternative production methods) or comes from hydrocarbon production. And though environmentalist like this kind of vehicles, they would not approve of the only way to have the H2 cheaper, nuclear plants. Also the efficiency sucks axe...
    It is a contradictory and intricate situation :S

    ^ They already work on the method to produce H2 in the car using using battery power, fueling only with water. It should be a cycle in theory: water --> H2 --> water.

    Well, in twenty years, they're ready... :/ b

    On the other side Electric cars aren't yet developed too, the cruising range is still a problem (220 miles per charge is the maximum with lithium-ion). Not that electricity is becoming any cheaper too...

    ^ the electrolysis method would go only one way on a system(car) like that and is definitely not that efficient. I would say we'd have to wait something more like 50 years to have a good replacement as a main energy source, or have more countries with nuclear power nowmwuahahaha

    Anyways, ¡Viva España!....
