2018 will be the year of the electric car, here are the consequences

in 2006, a documentary came out called "who killed the electric car?" as it turns out, that documentary's question was a little premature. take a look at this economist video, which suggests that 2018 will be the year of the electric car. they'll be easier to get, affordable, and go faster than ever before. but there will be unintended consequences. the materials for the cars come from politically unstable countries. without oil money rolling in, the middle east will be totally destabilized.

toto's "africa" is such an iconic song that it's become a must cover for choirs and a cappella groups the world over. most groups do a pretty straight forward version of the song, but this choir decided to go a different route. they mimic thunderstorm sounds with their hands, with snapping, and then with stomping. the result is a pretty remarkable recreation of a thunderstorm. and of course the thunderstorm ties straight into the "i bless the rains down in africa" line, which they deliver very well.
