margin can be used to lower risk too, or as a way to make a purchase that will be paid off with your next dividend

but all the good funnies come from someone with $5,000 buying $100,000 in tesla single-stock futures

yeah options and margin trading were originally ways to do small scale hedging like I buy $100 mil of stock A but I get a $5 mil put option in case it goes to poo poo but then some coked out financial wizards in the 70s were like "hey what if the risky part was the whole investment???" and the rest is history

what when my nissan's keyfob battery died, i could pull a regular mechanical key out of it to unlock the door, and hold it up to the start button to start my car (i guess there's a backup rfid chip in the key and sensor in the dash?) how is "keyfob battery dead and no internet connection/server down" not a scenario they planned for lol

Excellent. The Arkham Asylum shower cam is operational once more.


you can lock yourself out of your tesla if youre not in cellphone range and you only have the app to get in to the car
yes it will let you get in and drive away without the key fob if you have the app tell it to

I'm a bit disappointed that there are actual keyfobs so this isn't the only way to get into the cars. I liked the idea that 100% of Tesla drivers were locked out of their cars.

i didnt make that much until i graduated college lol

dad always tells the story of how he was offered to work in the steel factory ("the steelworks") as a legitimate option if he wanted to drop out of high school and it was good pay + full ride benefits + retirement + massive lay off bonus when he would have inevitably been made redundant when the factory shutdown some 20 odd years later. He didn't do it because the idea of working in a steel factory for his entire adult life spooked him into doing better at school

nowadays people with a high school degree get to work 8pm -> 2am slinging drinks for minimum wage and that's if they're lucky

in another two decades things will be very different, thanks to the inevitable collapse of the neoliberal order due to climate change and massive increases in resource competition

it will either usher in a new wave of sensible, technocratic democratic socialism or we’ll be stuck in a permanent Mad Max libertarian hellscape as everything falls apart around us

Do auto companies try and weight those numbers with the complexity of the car's design? 14% is awful no matter how you look at it, but considering that one of the strengths of electric cars and all that minimalist "software does everything" crap is that they're supposed to have LESS parts right, so in theory they should be easier to assemble?
