I saw a new Tesla X the other day in Europe and that is a good looking SUV if you have that kind of money to spend on cars, as well as ridiculous acceleration:

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

kangkung*** Why is the fried kangkung here nothing but thick inedible stems?
I'm no expert on culinary arts but my perception is that it needs to be cooked when it's very fresh and most places don't have that level of freshness.

They don't want loads of people turning up with 1960's Datsun pickups! (Which is a pity, because I wouldn't mind one.)

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

I've never eaten much Japanese food Pete but when I lived in Indonesia, I ate tofu all the time without any problems. They had another dish, Tempe, also made from soya and I loved the stuff, used to have it for lunch every day.

Re: Global Warming 2

To be honest, there isn't all that much thinking to be done, the world is about to change to a new era of cheap, sustainable energy:

Re: Electric Cars

That Honda city car in the video above is similar to the Renault Twizy which has been around in Europe for a few years now. You see quite a few of them around where I am in Luxembourg city, I think mainly because you can find places to park them on the small old streets in the centre of town. I know...

Discoveries of lush tropical grasses and trees have been found under the melted ice in areas of Antarctica.

Re: Electric Cars

It was rumoured that there would be an electric PCX available in Thailand this year. If so I certainly would be interested, perhaps linking it to solar panels on the car port. Yes, I asked about them at Honda a couple of months ago and they said that it was still happening but they didn't have a re...

Re: Global Warming 2

The real target is the world's largest economies. An argument in favour of fossil fuels was that they had promoted wealth by being cheap, abundant and had generated jobs, so now that alternative energy is getting cheaper than fossil fuels, is even more abundant and generating more jobs, what possib...

The Chinese government won’t grant subsidies to any new ordinary solar projects this year. For those that are being built, the incentives will be cut by 0.05 yuan (0.8 U.S. cents) per kilowatt-hour (kWh) https://www.thegwpf.com/why-the-lights-went-out-on-solar-stocks-today/ Chinese Solar Shift Rewr...
