    The University of Nebraska is known as the Huskers. But that was not their 1st name. They were originally known as the Bugeaters. And for a reason. Nebraska has lots and lots and lots of bugs and they are coming out in force due to the mild winter we had. Soon June bugs will arrive and they are juicy. Then grasshoppers and their juice is like glue. My brand new Prime is in for a lot of cleaning after every 10 mile trip. Wish Toyota had developed anti bug technology.

    They did. However, it turns out that forward-firing flame-throwers make the car slightly less gasoline efficient, and so the feature was not included on the Prime.
