I think you'll find that the safest cars to be in in an accident are mid-size sedans. Size does not necessarily equate to being safer in an accident. Plus, electric cars are not that light; check the battery weight. Like I said, worst analogy in history...

He's making a point:  Why?

He is a zealot - kook - nuts -

Is he nuts? He can afford it. That makes him eccentric, not nuts.

He could be driving a Volvo but chooses to sacrifice by driving some crap
electric car.

Why is that so hard to understand as an analogy?

Wouldn't be very hard at all if it a) were an analogy or b) made sense.

I'm not willing to drive Linux until it is VOLVO like.

I repeat: this is not your list. Find a Windows list and live happy.
