I didn't listen to the podcast, but just wanted to say that electric motorgliders are really coming around. I was out gliding with a friend recently and he broke the news that he has one of these babies on order:

I can't wait to see it in person in a few short weeks when it arrives. I will take some pics and videos if anyone is interested.

Any grease is better than no grease.
The best exercises are the ones you enjoy doing.
I strongly prefer vehicles without doors.
