    What do people think about "easier to make a great decision once than many good decisions many times"?  Someone told me that - I'm sure it's a garbled version of some aphorism -- in relation to buying an electric car.  How you decide about a car once every 6-7-8 (12-14-18) years, but you have to decide to bring your fabric bags every...
