Comment number 2... I think I have family there.
Nipple Alert
I was expecting an important call so I put my iPhone 5S in my shirt pocket while working in the garden.
I know I'd switched it off before I put it in there, I don't mean off off, I mean I'd clicked the top button so the screen was black. I'd also turned up the ringer so I wouldn't miss the call.
It's hot today, I was a bit, ahem, 'sweaty.' 
As I was pushing a wheelbarrow full of grass cuttings down a narrow path I could hear that familiar click-click-click-click of a phone keyboard.
I stopped and looked at the phone, it had switched on, opened Safari and started searching Google maps for a town called Hhbffjgvggggffdgfddfg.
More spookily I have never tried to use google Maps on Safari.
I use the google maps App.
How spookily weird is that? 
Did my left nipple rub against the fingerprint recognition button and open the phone?
Then my highly active nipple started blind typing?
Eeeuuuuww.

Sanity prevails on the day that Japan chooses to lift restrictions on its arms exports... Can we not catch a break?
International Court of Justice orders Japan to halt whaling in Antarctic, ruling that it is not for scientific purposes as the Japanese had claimed. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/03/31/japan-whaling-world-court/7104633/

I started an album for yesterday's event.

Let's post some pics in there for posterity, for future historians to unearth!

We'd like to thank everyone for attending the meeting yesterday, you're obviously all true EV'ers - even the rain didn't stop you.

We really enjoyed the tour and I think more than a few of us will be going back there to spend more time.

Another EV driver hits the streets - my son took his test in our i-MiEV and has the card to prove it - he past!

Really interesting post, a great dissection. Perhaps the place that hydrogen should be pursued and refined is in ships - they need large amounts of continuous power and have the space for storage. Without needing batteries to buffer and supply sudden loads a direct FC=>motor connection would avoid the losses of FC=>Battery=>Motor inherent in FC cars.

Here's a thought on the home DIY seal change though - assuming that you have to release the H2 in the tank to replace the seals, how do you get to the fuel station after you're done? Little red can of H2 :-)

On a day the local Harrogate UK newsrag tries to make a story out of the fact that the wind farm uses 5kW of grid power when it's not running, I'm enjoying a walk whilst watching the majestic, calming turning of the wind farm on the horizon.
