Have you ever wondered why cars stop running when they run out of gasoline? “Because cars use gasoline as fuel,” I heard someone say. Certainly, this is the conventional wisdom, but people who say that are just sheep, parroting what they learned in liberal elite engineering school. I figured out the truth because I am not burdened by education.
Everyone’s car is built with a demon inside it, and the demon’s job is to stop the car from running. The demon either can’t or won’t do this in the presence of gasoline, however. Anyone who has ever run out of gasoline knows this to be true: The car was running fine until the last of the gasoline ran out, and they experienced sputtering, loss of power, and finally a full stop. While this seems plausible on its own, it does not explain where the gasoline goes, and why it only goes away when the car is in use. There is some speculation that the demon gets motion sick while the car is moving, and drinking the gasoline makes it feel better. Another idea is that the demon’s attempts to stop the motion of the car are counteracted by a proportional amount of gasoline, thereby consuming it as a side-effect of the demon’s work.
Now that it seems obvious that demons are used in cars, let’s all agree that it makes no sense to invest in more fuel-efficient cars. The engines have nothing to do with how much fuel is used. What we need to do is get rid of the demons, or at least use more efficient demons. And it should be clear now that the future of cars is not electrical; if you’ve ever wondered why electric cars are so slow, it’s because they have no gasoline in them to stop the demons. The only reason they move at all is because car demons are forbidden from stopping golf carts but required to stop cars. Because electric cars lie somewhere in the middle, the demons slow the electric cars halfway “just in case.” Won’t we be in for a nasty surprise when they figure things out!
