Huh? They generate their own electricity, unless you hack them to accept a plug for additional power reserves.

Gassers suck!

Did you miss the part where hybrids have a gas engine that drives a generator that charges the batteries? You don’t plug them in, except maybe in Canada in the Winter….

That would be an electric car.

Hybrid = internal combustion engine + electric motor

Well, come on back any time you need to feel like a complete douchebag in front of strangers (e.g. when you stop getting invited to fancy dress parties, etc). That's why we're here.

A few years back, I worked at a store that featured the then brand new Razor scooter. A woman was shopping with her prepubescent son. She left him to his own devices while she shopped so he naturally pulled one of the Razors out of its box and proceded to scoot around the store. We kicked him off a couple of times but he kept sneaking back on it. It was closing time and the kid rounded a corner and the Razor hit a vacuum extension cord that was being used during cleanup.

He did a header over the handlebars and did a faceplant on the tile floor. Broke his front tooth in half. Mom came up screaming, "His tooth is broken. Don't you have any milk???" I'm thinking, "Do we, in any way, look like a food store?" I sent someone over to Applebees.

Of course, the company ended up paying but the kid learned a lesson that night...

"Got Milk? Then don't leave home without it."

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
