Is this some weird inference like Yosemite like to toss out there to sound like he's really in the top 2% of the IQ chart like he claims?

(PS, mods you can't delete this...ole YS1 made the claim, not me...lol)
Ha! It's an allusion to an old SNL running joke. Used here instead of the beating a dead horse emoji. Just establishes I'm old, not smart![emoticon]

That was me, but cut me some slack, man...I looked it up and it was from Chevy Chase weekend updates skits from 1975.
I doubt I was watching SNL when I was 2 years old!
I don't recall begging to stay up and watch SNL til around 10 years old at least...LOL!

Regarding the "not in my lifetime"....

...My old man saw the first airplane to fly in Montana as a kid; made everyone within the state (Alaska at the time) have a bit of a family reunion to see footage of the moon landing in '69. Ultimately traveled 'round the world on a variety of jet aircraft before passing.
...Friend of the old man's "Bob", who died in the '50's, had a career as a mariner: started as a kid on sailing ships and retired after several years working on Panamax diesel carriers.
...one 12drvr traveled from Los Anchorage to Seattle as a kid: 4-engine connies and/or DC-somethings, stops in Yakutat, Juneau, Ketchikan, Seattle, about a 8 hour trip if not interrupted by weather. Same 12drvr (YEARS later) routinely traveled non-stop Chicago - London or Ewe-stun - Africa non-stop on dedicated Boeing 747 Charters.

Point is that a lot can happen in a lifetime, although I suspect electric tow vehicles to rival the class 3 trucks won't make it in mine.

I imagine that has more to do with YOUR age/ lifespan vs. the pace of technology.
While I'm not holding my breath or counting the days and years. I think there is a chance that EV Semi's may be on the road and ready for prime time within my lifetime.

Can happen & likely to happen are different things. Since the laptop battery came out, there hasn't been much advancement addressing the Achilles heal of EVs.

We've also been told the flying car and fusion power are just a couple years away for decades.
