one of my favourite shows is Planetes and elon musk putting a car into space makes me mad, legit. there're whole episodes about bougie fuckers leaving garbage in space and elon musk sent a whole loving car into space. it's littering except one accident can gently caress us all forever

well in his defense it's heading out into the asteroid belt and beyond so realistically nobody will ever have to deal with it

granted, it was supposed to go to mars, but what's a few million miles here or there

Employee takes it upon himself to be trash executive officer at Tesla something he was never asked to do. Tesla management doesn't really care about his self appointed role so he later steals company trade secrets and turns them over to Business Insider for a hit piece on Tesla. Tesla fires him and sues. What exactly is his claim of defamation?

He doesn't seem malicious, naive and lacking understanding on how the world works but not malicious. That being said I doubt many employers would want an employee who takes on concerns outside of their lane and when not addressed to their satisfaction leak confidential information to third parties. That is generally speaking grounds for getting fired in most companies at least in the US. Generally speaking companies hire employees to do a job not take it upon themselves to create self appointed duties.

As for the lawyers claim that Tesla should have internally investigated a threat before contacting the Police that is just laughable. If Tesla had done that and someone had shot up the Tesla factory they would be sued for not contacting the Police. The purpose of the police is to investigate threats legitimate or otherwise.

I wonder if this potential failure was ever considered during the design of the car.

at no point in the design of any tesla was this a consideration for any part of it.

i don't know poo poo about them and am interested

dunno how good modern bmws are but like 10 years ago i worked with this dude who had an m3 and he would get shitfaced every time we went out so i always ended up driving it and it was probably the most fun driving experience i've ever had.

like that car ruined me for anything at a lesser performance level.

Washing your car in subzero weather then venturing out with the car is never a good idea. Of course things are going to freeze, it would on any car

anyone living where it snows regularly sees the cycle of snow -> slush -> roads dry -> line of cars at car wash

nobody is loving worried about washing their car in freezing temps.
