I’m still learning all the things the new Mini can do. For one thing, evidently if the weather’s cold, I can stay in bed, get on my iPhone, and start it up and heat it while I stay in bed.
I was picturing that, and of course I was concerned because, my God, a fatal flaw, I’d still have to get up to open the garage door, because if you leave a car running in a closed garage you will die of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Only, of course, not with an electric car.
I can’t see how you could die by electric car. You could put a fork in the charging outlet, I suppose.
When we were considering the electric car, I suggested we could instead wait for the hydrogen car to be available in our area, given that I’ve had to hear about it at every State of the Union for a dozen years, but Gary said HYDROGEN IS WHAT THEY USED IN THE APOLLO ROCKETS DO YOU WANT TO DIE.
And no, I don’t want to die, but it seems that given how hazardous gas-powered cars are, there must be some unknown danger hiding under the surface of electric cars.
