Quote of the Day: Our Sacred Rights (Rites?)

In modern times, one of our sacred rights (or rites?) is the ability to drive a 1-2 ton vehicle up to a fuel station, fill it up without spending a fortune or more than a few minutes of time, and then drive around at 70 miles per hour without worrying about needing more fuel for awhile.
That's JoulesBurn at The Oil Drum. He is plugging EEStor's EESU (Electrical Energy Storage Unit) for electric vehicles, which appears to be a capacitor instead of a battery and apparently confers some advantages in terms of weight/range/charging speed. I'm not a qualified judge of the science (technical specs and safety), so I'll file away the idea and believe it when I see it hit commercial scale.
