This article makes my heart happy. I'm an old motor-head who loves classic cars who finds himself at odds with a love of engineering and tech. I think I've found the perfect solution. This post by Andrew Collins at Jalopnik is a great read.
I'm a huge fan of the webcomic XKCD. When I saw this one today, it reminded me of a piece I wrote about lightning (The Ultimate Wireless Energy:Lightning) a few years ago. I got a good laugh out of this comic and wanted to share it.
