Part 1 – “Green” Can't Bring in the Other Green: EV Economics From a Corporate Perspective
(For simplicity's sake, assume that I mean both hybrids and true electric vehicles when I use the term “electric.” If I'm talking specifically about electric-only cars, I'll call them “full electric.”)
By now, anyone who has read my previous posts knows that I'm...not all that fond of Electric Vehicles. They are an expensive, inefficient, form of transportation that is feasible in few applications, and cost-effective in even fewer.
That said, however, most of the arguments I have posted before are rather common. You see them, and responses to them, on any forum post or comment section involving debates about electrics versus any other power source. Range limitations, chemical limitations of batteries, personal cost: those are all very common arguments.
There is one argument, however, that is not: the cost to automakers.
Judgement on Babylon!Judgement on Babylon!18 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
For the longest time I considered that great city of Babylon in Revelations to be the Papacy, It met all of the requirements except for one...the industry! Rev: 18 speaks of not being able to buy or sell with them again and the rest of the world will mourn that they cant enjoy the wonders they had offered the world, the finest of every sinful luxury. While the Papacy is still the false profit, teaching Idolatry and cultist paganism to take away from the word of God and replacing it with meaningless filler to serve the men in charge of it like in Jesus's time, it lacks the means to an end described for its destruction. The US, my poor country, so well off that you forgot the Lord...you forgot where your blessings came from and sought out evil and vile means to shame us before the eyes of the Lord and his angels (speaking of myself too, being a sinner) bringing judgement down onto our people! We take idols into our homes and not only put them over our Lord, but cast away our first faith

To many, it seems extremely unimportant while to others, it could possibly mean the difference between continuing to enhance their skills or quit art all together.
"Stealing" is a word that is often thrown around a lot to the people who do this. These users, who have likely not read and fully understood deviantART's terms of agreement, take other users' artwork and post them on their own accounts or steal their character designs. It takes the fun out of making the stuff that we do and makes us, as artists, feel extremely... well, used. Like our artwork doesn't matter.
A lot of us aren't like professionals. We don't get paid for what we do. Our sole gratification for even making the stuff we do is our favorites and comments. Nothing else. Some on this site get paid for it, but I sure as hell don't.

Why Sonic's stories Suck now.It's no secret to long time Sonic Adventure fans that the writing for Sonic has really gone down hill. Maybe it's depressing even. I mean, hey, we grew up with these games and Mario could only dream of doing so well. Creating characters that we could really feel for, whom we loved, and who we admired. We have Shadow, who's the ultimate lifeform. Gamma, a robot some say destined to be destroyed, and with a flicky inside of him, that's not far from the truth. We have Silver, a hedgehog from a ruined future. And Tails, a younger character who just wants to be like Sonic but needs to find his own way and be himself.Why Sonic's stories Suck now.1 day ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Welcome back to the show. It's been about three weeks, and I apologize. We've been getting an awful lot of news, lately. I haven't been keeping up. But don't worry. I'll be doing my best from this point forward, so bear with me for now! Vibravo and I have been on vacation, so that's why nothing has been posted for us anyway. Who knows what's up with the rest of the series?

The Amtrak service will be resuming tomorrow between New York and Philadelphia after a six day hiatus due to the crash last Tuesday. The House is calling for a reduction in the Amtrak funding, which I think is stupid. The best way to prevent something like this from happening is to put more money into what's causing these accidents. Anyway, it sucks that the eight people are dead and the 200 were injured, but at least the Amtrak will work now!

The 11th Doctor's Call and What It Meant. Back when Deep Breath first aired there was an uproar of gratitude and also disgust when the 11th Doctor called Clara at the end of the episode. While some fans believe this was a good way of passing the torch, many others believed this took focus off the 12th Doctor, focusing on the past rather than getting us used to the future. I, for one, see both of their points. And while I didn't watch the entire series I heard from reviews that Peter Capaldi had most of his screen time stolen by Jenna Louise Coleman, so I see why Matt Smith's appearance didn't make things much better. On the other hand, I feel it made the transition of actors much smoother rather than sporadic and sudden.The 11th Doctor's Call and What It Meant.5 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
However, I have my own thoughts on the 11th Doctor's call from Trenzalor. I feel that it was very important and meaningful, actually. The 11th Doctor was talking to Clara, but the script writers were talking to the audience. The 11th Doctor said that the 12th Doctor was scared, unsu

Junior Raj L., who was running for president against four other people, didn’t think he would win.A life of service5 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
The next day, Raj waited for the results to be posted. His eyes rose to the top of the yellow paper that listed the new officers. There was his name at the top of the list.
He smiled to himself. This presidency tied everything he had been through together. All of the struggles of losing his home, moving to Texas and becoming closer to God. He can't wait to start.
It’s August 28, 2005. Seven-year-old Raj, along with his mom, dad and younger sister, were driving north to Mississippi. Hundreds of cars lined the highway.
“Dad, why can’t we just park our car out here?” Raj asked. “We have our tent.”
“No, the water is going to be coming through here, too.”

In Case You Missed ItThe Freddy Gray/Black Lives Matter MarchIn Case You Missed It1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
There was a non-violent protest in Fayetteville Saturday, May 2nd in support of Baltimore, Freddie Gray and the whole Black Lives Matter movement. If you were unaware, it was understandable. The protest was pulled together in a few small days and the word didn’t have time to spread as well as it could have. Not to mention on the day itself several other events were going on around town like the opening of the Razorback Greenway, the Farmers Market (great weather for it too), etc. The group that did show up was small in number (approximately 35-40 people) but large in determination and dedication to having their message heard. With police escort and protest marshals in tow, the intrepid group took to the streets with their protest signs and rhythmic chants about peaceful protests and support for Freddie Gray. The group walked at a brisk pace as the legal observer, Alison Carter and mysel
Writing Tips: Parody Part II: The ExecutionConsidering that my polls usually stay the same when a choice gets ahead, so our source material for today's episode is Frozen. Not the absolute best for parody material, but it was a choice and at least it's not High School Musical. Keep in mind that our Frozen spoof is just for example purposes only. I'm not writing a full length spoof screenplay. Of this movie. Yeah, I might have something to show you in a few months... if I could actually finish something for once.Writing Tips: Parody Part II: The Execution1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Step 1: Watch the Movie
Do this and you're already ahead of Seltzer and Friedberg. Now when I say "watch the movie" I don't just mean "watch the movie." This is kind of hard to explain, but by the end of this process you're going to know the film like the back of your hand. I'd recommend doing this with a film that you like. The first thing you should do is watch the movie like you usually do. Pop up some popcorn and just watch it.
Once you've watched it, let it simmer for awhile. Then we're going to watch the mov
Dinosaurs and the BibleDinosaurs and the Bible1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
by Ken Ham on November 5, 1999; last featured January 5, 2015
An aura of mystery surrounds the dinosaurs. Where did they come from? Did they evolve? Did they really live millions of years ago? What happened to them? Are there any living today? Has any human being ever seen a live dinosaur?
Children and adults alike are absolutely fascinated by these mysterious monsters. Numerous books and movies have been produced to satisfy a seemingly insatiable hunger for information on these puzzling creatures. The truth of the matter, however, is that there are no real mysteries at all, once you have key information that is not generally known and is withheld from the public.

by Dr. Andrew A. Snelling on March 9, 2011; last featured August 10, 2014
The Bible is clearly unlike any other document in history. Every claim it makes about science is not only true but crucial for filling in the blanks of our understanding about the origin of the universe, the earth, fossils, life, and human beings. The more we study and learn about the world, the more we come to appreciate the Bible’s flawless, supernatural character.
The Bible never claims to be a science textbook. Nevertheless, the Bible claims to be “true from the beginning” (Psalm 119:160, KJV), so every specific reference
Why?? Why Did People Start to Have Shorter Lives After the Flood?Why?? 1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
by Bodie Hodge on July 16, 2010
When the Flood ended, the maximum life expectancy of humanity dropped quite a bit. What changed to make this happen? Bodie Hodge, AiG–U.S., examines the biblical clues.
In A Life Sentence?, you stated that God was not giving men a lifespan, but rather he was giving men one hundred and twenty years to repent.
Now, I too am a Christian but I must ask one question: if God was not setting man's lifespan, then why is it that after the flood men started living for a shorter and shorter time? It would appear that men were gradually getting to be 120 years old. If this is not the result of God giving them a possible lifespan, then what is it the result of?

Writing Tips: Parody Part I: The SituationSo normally, I usually wait a few days after a poll to decide on what topic I'll cover on Writing Tips. This time is different. Although there's a bit of a debate on what is the hardest type of comedy to write, most people at least wanted to know how to write a good parody. Personally, I believe that it's one of the easier ones on the list. However, there is a lot of explaining this time, so it's going to be in two parts: part one is the set up, and part two is the punchline. Also to be specific, I'm talking about making something funny through imitation, not taking a song and replacing their lyrics so it's about Friendship is Magic or Minecraft.Writing Tips: Parody Part I: The Situation2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
And yes, I do believe that if you do your set up correctly, writing a parody is semi easy. At least in the planning stages, parody is actually my favorite thing to write. Ridiculous scenarios are almost always a fun thing to write. If it wasn't that easy there wouldn't be only two ways you could fail this. Well, there are only two ways to fail

Seven Compelling Reasons
by Herb Samworth on March 9, 2011; last featured August 24, 2014
Even if you don’t yet know any other compelling evidences that the Bible is true, you should know the experience of your own life. Like the blind man who received his sight from Jesus and was then interrogated by the Pharisees, you can say, “One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see” (John 9:25).
Someone has well said that the proof of the pudding is in the tasting. That common adage illustrates one of Scripture’s most profound truths: its power to transform the lives of those who trust in Christ

Approximately the last eighty years networks have used electronics as weapons to induce brain washing to victims and there family's and as the victims or there family's reach out for help the perpetrators use devices called psycotronic generators to manipulate the mind when the authorities or friends are contacted in desperate attempts for help.
Psycotronic generators(electromagnetic frequencies) can even be spread out over vast areas and have been for many years using HAM radios or government satellites.Now psycotronic generators are even available through web sites on line in a multitude of models that can direct the energy field of animals and humans.
The CIA and other government agencies have been using these devices for a very long time.
The devices can tell a perpetrator instantly or even before your brain can utter a word before you think to speak the perpetrator already KNOWS what you are going to
Suicide: Self-inflicted DeathSuicide: Self-inflicted Death2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

On September 11, 2001, men and women chose to throw themselves out of the burning World Trade Center towers. They knew that death on the pavement below was certain. As I sat in my New York City apartment and watched the events of that fateful day, I was in disbelief. I asked many questions that day, but one in particular stands out: what was it like in that building to make people see jumping as the better option?
Suicide is the third leading cause of death among 15–24 year-olds in America, Although the overall suicide rate for this age group is on the decline, a frightening number of adolescents still consider self-inflicted death to be a permanent “solution” to their temporary troubles. Thinking often leads to doing, and doing often leads to dying.
As a pastor, I’m occasionally asked what happens to people who choose
