The Morning Report

  • "24" shuts down for Season 7 script revisions. [Ain't It Cool] - The best part of the story? Says showrunner Howard Gordon, "Our feeling was this: We're so happy with what we've done so far, and to the extent that we had that luxury [of time], we said, 'Why not make it as good as we could?'" I wish they'd thought of that for, say, seasons 4, 5 and 6.

  • Green polar bears? [Treehugger] - Polar bears go crazy for St. Patrick's Day. Sadly, the drunken bastards have no concept of time and are ALWAYS partying early. Lushes.

Do hybrids always have to be so hatchbacky? Is that a rule of hybrid design? Does it make it more aerodynamic, and therefore more gas-efficient?

Too many questions for a Monday morning, my apologies. :)

I think it is something to do with the aerodynamics and maximizing the fuel efficiency. The original Honda Insight had that hatchbacky look, too, so they might also be referencing the original.

Those are my very uneducated guesses. :)

My favorite are the polar bears.

Do you think they put Nathan in a brown coat for a reason? ;)

Liz said...

Yay! Green polar bears! Because they get algae growing in their fur and no pigment to hide it.

Also, polar bears are left-handed (-pawed).

Also, I am horribly disappointed that the Insight is a Prius clone. I've so been looking forward to something less obnoxious-looking.
