Illustrating how impressive Tesla’s performance was this past quarter, Wall St. was anticipating Tesla to post a loss amid $1.9 billion in revenue for the quarter.
Well, you're paying for what we computer people call "The Microsoft premium". As we all know, Microsoft's products aren't just designed to be powerful, but to have a design aesthetic that makes them just a little bit special compared to the competition. Apple has always been known for their powerful, but pedestrian, beige or gray thrown together boxes, with no thought given to how a device should look or feel or its usability. Whereas people buy Microsoft not just for the quality, but to own something a little special and little different from the boring old me-too machines from everyone else. A machine that looks friendly, and is friendly.
It's an ethos that may mean Microsoft only gets 2-3% of the market with its Lumia phones, or Zune music players, or Surface tablets, but it ends up getting the right 2-3%, discerning customers willing to pay more for a better product, who'll eventually influence those around them to do the same thing.

Automobile manufacturers, and others who compete against imports would benefit, at least for a little while.
The automobile manufacturers are all international corporations now. I don't think they would benefit. Probably some home-grown industry would benefit from protectionism if he actually managed to get any enacted, which is unlikely to actually be his goal given his current use of cheap overseas labor, his importation of immigrant labor, etc.
Instead, the USSR took it as a chance to ramp up and get ahead
What? Lol. Show me on the timeline when the USSR was ahead.
Getting killed falling off a roof while installing solar panels is a more common way of dying than from a nuclear accident
That's true! Being a handyman is much more dangerous than being a cop. Handyman lives matter!
On the other hand, if we embrace more large-scale solar, the deaths will go down, because those deaths are primarily from small-scale installations.
You can talk about that when wind and solar no longer need endless, catastrophically-indebting levels of State subsidies.
But fossil fuels are already getting endless state aid in the form of tax breaks and access to public lands. If you want to set the bar there, I'm all for ending that aid as well.

The whole point of a headline is to be attention-getting. If you can make it clever, all the better. Nuclear Plants Leak is pure gold. Don't pretend people don't make jokes about how wind farms are hot air yuk yuk yuk. On the other hand, if you're a bit sensitive about jokes about nuclear plants leaking, well... u mad, bro?
Actually, my question is, what do any of these three nations have to gain by invading any of one another? We all have the same stuff, which is to say that we all have land, water, oil, and mineral resources. Even in that case, where they have a shared border so it's relatively convenient, what is there to gain? Certainly nothing that couldn't be had cheaper at home.
You have to be either a troll or a completely moronic fanboi to actually believe that statement.
Does Trump have any other kind of supporters? AFAICT there are only two kinds. The trolls are trolls. The fanbois are suffering from cognitive dissonance, specifically they have to think they're great because in their model anyone who isn't great is a turd. Trump makes them feel embiggened because he's just as much of an asshole as they are, and he could become president if we're not careful.
