These guys know...it isn't easy being green
As Kermit sang in the late 70's, "It isn't easy being green". Kermit stood out among his fabric friends as the only green one in the group. He understood that being green made him different and he was OK with that. I think he secretly enjoyed standing out and bucking the trend as to what was considered normal.
He was a lot like John 'Plasma Boy' Wayland and his 1972 electric Datsun. It was at one time the fastest accelerating street legal electric car, period (and it may still be). This little 'forgotten economy car of the 70's' as John puts it will run 11.50s at 110 mph at the local drag strip all day long without burning one ounce of fossil fuel. Talk about bucking the trend! I think John secretly enjoys standing out from what is considered normal. After all, it worked for Kermit.
