It appears the car company Fisker actually has a future again. After years of seemingly like they were done, Henrik Fisker posted an image to his twitter previewing his new electric sedan.

Not much information has been released, so most information people have is what they can see in the picture, or the few tidbits that have been released to the press. The car has two sets of butterfly doors. We'll see if those actually make it into production, but as of now, they're pretty cool.

Henrik Fisker did send a letter to a few select members of the media that detailed a few more things about the car, according to Business Insider. The sedan will be mostly built out of carbon fiber and aluminum and will offer a roomier interior than its closest competitor, the Tesla Model S.

Clearly, they are gunning for the Model S, especially since Tesla really doesn't have any major competition.

Fisker even told Business Insider last week, "I think it's pretty clear when you look at the market, when you look at the premium market, there's really only one company that it out there, and it's Tesla."

Sure, most major companies offer an electric car or a high-gas mileage hybrid, but none of those cars are exciting. No one says, "Damn, is that the new Focus Electric?" or "No way! Is that the Chevy Bolt?"

According to Business Insider, the new Fisker will use cutting-edge graphene super-capacitors inn lieu of the lithium-ion batteries used by most modern electric cars. The estimate is that the sedan will have a range of 400 miles or more.

Pricing hasn't been released, but a safe estimate is that this car will be around the price of a high-end Model S, if not more. A price of around $100,000 is a safe guess. However, Henrik Fisker does have plans to eventually release a mass market electric car with a starting price below that of the Model 3 and even the Chevy Bolt.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
