I also believe that Tesla's will get both better AND cheaper until more people (even most people) can afford them. Of course that also includes other manufacturers upping their electric car game too.
Huh. I've been hearing that for 30 years now. Any day now I guess!
Then we just need to build Nuke plants to power all these electric cars, shutter all the coal plants an viola! Problem solved.
I can't believe it's that easy! Why didn't you say so before?!?
Taxes, and rules and regulations are the things that seem like they'll solve the problem, but they really won't.
Nothing like an unsupported assertion on a site like
Or when the company declares a dividend, but that's a bit of a quaint idea nowadays.
Depends on your contract. If the contract says they can, then they can and probably will at some point. Regardless, it pays to watch your bill like a hawk - plenty of U.S. providers, cellular providers in particular, have gotten in trouble for charging customers for stuff they didn't order. I've been fortunate, I guess. My provider hasn't tried to raise my prices, but they have tried to upsell me to higher tiers of service when they often can't provide the bandwidth I'm already supposed to be getting.
The crawlers that transported the Saturns and shuttles to the launch pads are also electric drive.
And who's to say that he doesn't have another three dozen that he knows about, but held back?
If you're making enough that you can spend $200K just on fun car stuff, then yes, it's quite likely you can self-insure and not worry about that. The vast majority of people that like to tinker with their cars aren't in that income bracket, though. As regards the $20K bond - good luck if that's all you have to pay for in a serious accident. That quite possibly won't even cover the cost of the other car if it's totalled, much less medical expenses for another party that's seriously injured.
By this, probably not. Your insurance company might have something to say about rolling your own ECU though, and you just know they'll jump at the chance to deny more claims.
From this Reuters story:
One current federal prosecutor learned how agents were using SOD tips after a drug agent misled him, the prosecutor told Reuters. In a Florida drug case he was handling, the prosecutor said, a DEA agent told him the investigation of a U.S. citizen began with a tip from an informant. When the prosecutor pressed for more information, he said, a DEA supervisor intervened and revealed that the tip had actually come through the SOD and from an NSA intercept.
"I was pissed," the prosecutor said. "Lying about where the information came from is a bad start if you're trying to comply with the law because it can lead to all kinds of problems with discovery and candor to the court." The prosecutor never filed charges in the case because he lost confidence in the investigation, he said.
Scott Adams summed it up nicely.
That's pretty much what morphine does to me. It does very little to reduce the pain, but it makes me completely not care about it. That, and throw up a lot, like most narcotics do with me. For the life of me I can't understand how people get addicted to the stuff. I'd *much* rather be in pain than feeling nauseous.
Interesting that you mention that - I've never really thought I could see UV, but I have noticed that black lights and UV LEDs have a weird intense brightness that makes me squint even though the visible light isn't that bright, and I can't really perceive a different color. Germicidal lamps don't cause the same effect for me.
For varying interpretations of "bad guys".
