Aptera or Not?

(Off topic)

It certainly does look cool (one always wonders when it will take off in the air) but am not convinced.

Back n the 1970's they already had 3-wheeled electric cars in the UK (they may still have them, knowing how conservative that country is) and these things were dangerous as hell because you would not hear them coming. Add to that continental visitors used to look at the wrong side of the road while crossing... (It's the blue car you see Mr. Bean always bumping into.)

Besides, $25-30,000 for a few pieces of plastic? And only a two seater?

Actually, in spite of its look, I don't think it will take off :-)

Katie Holmes New Haircat

Katie Holmes in the Brazilian Valyrie opening has a strange new haircat, sorry, haircut.

Am sure her dress is worth a fortune but IMHO it looks terrible (in the sense of no good). And Tom himself seems to have gained back a few kilos since his last appearance.
