Even though many who also didn't blow money on Elio wished it to be serious and succeed with its trikes, now it's seemingly impossible to not consider it as a scam.

I'd prefer an Edison 2 with a Scuderi split-cycle engine anyway.

Tears of joy at getting out on the top, or did you find out about the dollar returning to the gold standard:

Sometimes you seem quite obsessed with the Scuderi split-cycle, but actually it doesn't seem to be a bad idea at all.

Bankers got us off the gold standard. Our senate and house are too easy controlled by $. The banks produce something like 75% of our GDP.
The only way we go back to the gold standard is if that's what they want.

I have been watching that bill since before it had an HB number.

I love gold but it's just not making enough money. In 2015 I bought rhodium.

For Earth day I cruised my 10+ year old Chinese 3-wheel scooter. I wanted something that worked in 2007. That was "future" enough for me!
