Very much this.
Spoiled by his success he complains about people who are broke enough to act out his stupid ideas for $5.
He seems like the emperors brat who's having fun because the paws will dance to the rhythm of his clapping hands.
There is good potential for enlightening in this situation, though.

Comment automatic lane changing and Autobahn (Score 1) 108

We don't have a general speed limit on German highways, the speed driven in the leftmost lane frequently exceeds 120mph by a lot, so the differential speed between cars in different lanes can be quite high. While you are driving 80mph (130kmph) in the middle lane a car will pass you at 130mph (210kmph).
This only works because one of the rules on the Autobahn is that - except from a few circumstances - you are supposed NOT to overtake on the right. The lane on the right of you is always slower than your lane.

So I'm wondering
- does the autosteer-feature of tesla obey this rule or will it pass by a slower car on the right
- when auto-changing lanes to the left, what is the maximum speed difference the Tesla checks for (i.e. how far back does its radar / camera-system check whether a car is approaching).

And I say $deity bless them seizing every uninsured car before its irresponsible owner has the chance to hit me on the highway, possibly ruining my life and not being capable to at least pay for the expenses.
