Musk said he was almost run over by a truck while riding a dirt bike as a kid, which is why Tesla won't be getting into the bike business.

Elon Musk is like that QAnon thing where they just keep people interested and believing with weird vague promises that never arrive, but it doesn't matter because there's another weird vague promise that will never arrive just around the corner if you're patient and keep believing and little longer.



what do elon musk, qanon, #resist, the lottery, and health insurance have in common?

they sell hope, which no longer naturally exists in america

Did anyone bother checking whether the car was on the course Elon said it was? Im thinking of that satellite that NK launched into a tumbling orbit and still celebrates as a victorious space conquest (and also someone in gbs was actually afraid it had a nuke payload ready to drop on them in their sleep)

ham satellite nerds tracked it for a couple days and it appeared to be on the "correct" (wrong) trajectory. its not hanging out in low earth orbit or anything.

your car is smouldering and licks of flame are beginning to shoot out from the undercarriage, your children are in the back seat. quickly take your 12v battery pack, remove the cover from the bumper, connect the battery to the auxiliary power terminal, and hope that enough of the car comes online to allow you to use the rear door handles.

this is what we get for letting white people develop "escape rooms" as fun weekend activities.

rp1 would have been vastly more tolerable if it was written by somebody who was not a hack, somebody who could take the tropes and concepts that cline literally xeroxed into his manuscript and riffed / edited / refactored them

like, here

quote:

Say Anything...: Art3mis also mentions that the movie was playing on the weekend that Halliday and Karen went on their single date. Parzival is seen holding the boombox from the film, causing it to play music during the battle.

it's...it's just the scene from Say Anything. There's no introspection, no interpretation. it's just a loving cut and paste

teslas are notoriously lovely at high sustained speeds. they are not performance vehicles. they are cars for people that think that the ability to cut off 12 cars on an offramp is a 'supercar' thing. they fall over and die if they live in triple digit speeds. i will straight up challenge any model s or 3 on an open road run with my BMW that's old enough to buy alcohol

the leaf, comparatively, loving sucks and the battery loses something like 30% capacity in the first year or so, because they don't manage the thermals at all.

the leaf is the other extreme of the spectrum. you're right with the battery pack issues, but you gotta admire the Georgia Situation

for a while, many southern states, most notably GA, offered tax credits that totaled out to $250 a month if you bought a qualifying EV. Nissan was dumping Leafs on lease at $199 a month. So all these grizzled rear end peanut farmers in Georgia rural areas leased Leafs just thinking they were pulling a fast one on the government, then actually got in and drove it around, and realized they loving loved them for short in town trips and bopping around the farm.

one of the best better-to-beg-forgiveness car periods i had was when my parents took my younger brother to the grand canyon when i was on freshman winter break in college. i got to drive the purple '95 caravan for two weeks all over central arkansas and yeah we had 3 rows and would load everybody up and cruise. had the v6, was fine. tons of room. fuckin blast


the other was when my goth roomie bought a lincoln town car, looked over at his 88 mazda 323 hatch and said "Hey this has expired tags and no insurance. Wanna drive it?" holy poo poo that was fun
