some people just explore facts and physics, and follow the paths, vs
trying to hack out new ones in defiance of physics. then again,
you need to know something about physics to do this :-)

this babbling seems to indicate second-hand knowledge of physics
and research and researchers :-)

ah, faith, vs evidence :-) altho a gasoline/compressor/tank/pneumatic motor
car might be lighter and simpler than a gasoline/generator/battery/motor
version and able to handle higher regeneative braking power. and perhaps
we can compress air without wasting much heat, or compress it at home
and use the heat...
