(Even if we'd already heard enough rumors to indicate that it wasn't going to happen.)

Happy New Year! In my review of the Seasonic FOCUS SGX-650 650W in January 2019, I talked about a guy who likes to argue about pretty much anything for the sake of arguing. So what better way is there to start 2020 with another story that contains the same main character? Recently, I was hanging out with a few friends when the topic of electric cars came up. I am a big proponent of electric cars just like him; unfortunately, he is also quite misinformed about traditional gas powered vehicles and started to make some very incorrect statements.
