Smarter than Smart Cars
- =v= Here's a "Bicycle Genius" T-shirt design,
sort of a takeoff on the Smart Car logo:
| The "Smart Car" isn't smart; it gets the same
| fuel efficiency as other economy cars but only
| seats 2 passengers. When compared to bicycles,
| all cars tend to look down right idiotic.
| Where's the logic in working tons of hours to
| pay for a car to get to work to pay for a car?
| What's the sense in driving to the gym to pay
| a membership to get some exercise?
| Move within biking distance to work, sell
| your car, cancel your gym membership and start
| living smarter. Increase your quality of
| life while not contributing to the political,
| environmental, social calamity created by the
| world's dependency on oil.
=v= I can only add that when I first saw one of
these it was parked in a crosswalk in Paris.
Now that they're sold (and eco-hyped) in the U.S,
I see them parked illegally everywhere. Because
hey look, it fits!
