    Default $10 million X Prize for 100mpg

    One of the competitors is already getting 92 mpg!

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,339629,00.html

    Now if they'd just make a mod for the old 440 in my motorhome to get that kind of mileage! Heck... I'd chip in a couple of bucks toward that 10 mil... LOL

    Weee! A new opportunity for the whiners to focus on the link going to foxnews.com!

    There needs to be more stuff like this to speed up an overall decrease on our heavy dependence on foreign oil.

    I see this thread developing as follows:

    1. Good idea this.
    2. Discussion of our own mpgs at the moment
    3. The need for alternative fuels
    4. The myth of peak oil
    5. The Bush criminal empire
    6. Reasons for the last war in Iraq
    7. Reasons for the next war in Venezuela
    8. Dave might be gay
    9. All hell breaks loose, lots of name calling
    10. Brett goes click.

    Why not play the "Tick off the categories as it goes along" game.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Wait a minute...this article is implying that "private competition" actually works! I could have sworn the only way humans could get anything done is to give all of their money to the government and let it distribute as needed.

    Haha, exactly! Look how well the Soviet Union turned out! There is a balance there... I'd hate to see the military privatized. One thing people look past is the US Postal Service.... It works pretty damn well compared to FedEx or UPS... much, much cheaper too!
