shockingly small


That little black BMW x-3 is a fairly small car at only 186 inches long.


But it’s a giant compared to the TWIZY by Renault.



This tiny electric car is only 92”,
about half as long as the little Beemer.



The ZE stands for “zero emission”. 


It charges in about 3 1/2 hours from a standard household receptacle.


Or those charging stations, all over Milan.


Since its launch in 2009, Renault has sold about 20,000 units at about $10,000 each.

That’s not much.


But it’s impressive when you consider its range is only 40 miles.


And the only heat in winter is an electric blanket sold as an accessory that plugs into the car.

Socrates taught Plato

Plato taught Aristotle.


Plato was a Greek philosopher widely credited with laying the foundations for Western thought and government.

Seems he got a lot right.

don't go in, it's a trap


Naturally, red is symbolic of the blood of Christ shed for believers.


But more importantly, red doors are a symbol of sanctuary dating from the Middle Ages in England.


They've served as fair warning since the dawn of man because...


...no one would dare do violence on hallowed ground.
