Yes, I don't like the car because it's not my thing and I agree with their conclusion of if you are wanting a car to take to the track this car is pointless. However I do believe the car can perform as Tesla say it does if you treat it the way they say you should.
The court showed they did not lie- because they didn't. The handling is awful, it takes a longer time to 'fill the tank' than it should to be useful on a daily basis for anyone who commutes over Tesla's distance, the brakes failed, the batteries, when using it as race car, last ~52 miles. Factual all.
In what was said, they did not lie. The court ruling backs that up.
Sounds like people are being fanboys of Tesla. The car is a pointless waste of money unless you want something to stand next to it and talk all about it. If you want a track car a 25k BRZ is a vastly superior choice. Plus, I disagree with them, it's ugly too.
The only point at which people would be deceived is if they weren't actually listening to what was being said.
Hydrogen is the best, easiest and 'greenest'. It's the right way. We made it to space in a decade. We can do hydrogen on a cheap substrate in half that time. Think of all the lithiums we'll save alone.
In that same episode May points out the correct method of powering a car of the future, with hydrogen. Not toxic, useless, ancient battery technology.
Also, more grappling hooks. In fact, in a completely formal and scientific pole [sic] here at work at a *major* games company, it was decided every game developed from here on out should allow the player the use of a grappling hook. Just Cause 2 FTW!
F*5k now I am doing it.
Someone, anyone rescue the world from this incessant hypercycle commentary. Let the world breathe.
So here we go. I know for certain what killed America- it was Obama. He did. All by himself. No wait, maybe it was the Tea Party... no... taxes, yes that was it, taxes punched America in the nuts. No, Kevin Smith. Cop Out FFS? No, it was Gingrich and Reagan- the original tax and spenders. No, it was dogma (not the Kevin Smith movie- well- wait, it could have been that...) Wait, it was religion. Religion killed the whole world and Obama is it's Rosicrucian overlord. Wait, George Bush- he is still killing America and in league with the Trilateral commission which is a Masonic plot to immanentize the eschaton.
What were we talking about?
Jesus Christ. Perhaps it was a bad fu$&ing attitude that is killing America?
The author found inspiration and hope in a place without a whole lot to spare. Let's, perhaps, for once, applaud and foster that.
I do remember my(the) first Maker Faire. It filled me with the same exuberance as the author- took tons of pictures, talked to people and got encouragement about a few ideas I had milling about in my brain, made some great friends, met the makers of the flame spitting serpent, saw kids engaging and creating in a way that I would hope they could in school. It all left that fire in me not just of self worth but of hope. It's still with me. It reinforced my belief that there are more people who want to do and share and be part of something than those who don't.
Rock the f#(k on CmdrTaco.
There is still slavery.
There are still Nazis.
American independence is far from secure.
So that's that then. War is just a brutish, stupid way of stating one's opinion.
Thanks for taking the time to read it right.
