Awesome fact of the day :
" [the car I will use in Japan has] heated front seat and a remote start so that you can warm up the car before you get it! "
Given the fact I am cold 90% of the time and I am currently looking for the thickest polar fleece wearable without being so thick my arms won't be able to move, this is GOOD NEWS. My carbon-conscious-eco-mind is unhappy. My body is happy.
