    Some people like Musk are looking ahead.

    However, it feels like more and more (especially in this country) are not. I feel like we keep sliding toward...

    Wow. I love that you can clearly see the little burst thrusters firing while he wonders what mechanism could possibly be responsible for correcting the orientation of the rocket.

    Rode in a Model S d90 yesterday. I'm convinced he's a wizard or something. The car is pure fucking magic.

    Good point. The nuclear reactor in my Tucker has never needed fuel.

    I saw a tesla stopped on the side of an offramp in Eugene yesterday. At the top was a sign for the ev charging port, first time I've seen someone run out of power on the highway

    I'm a fan. Just wish I could afford the price of admission. Though it would need to be 4WD.
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    So there is a God? And it is just some socially awkward teenage alien who never goes out to play with other aliens. Yup, we are fucked.

    That stuff only makes sense if you're the one playing the game. And if I was playing a game there would be way more hookers and blow. So it doesn't make sense.

    No shit, and Ferraris suck when they run out gas. Why would anyone buy one?

    Yeah, but it takes a few minutes to fill up a car with gas, instead of hours with an ev.

    Btw, an ev battery loses 30 percent of its capacity after 500 cycles, ie about a year of charging.

    You're missing the forest for the trees. Electric engines are demonstrably superior to ICEs in every conceivable way. The only advantage ICEs hold is energy storage. Once the energy storage issue is solved ICEs will become museum pieces overnight. It's a very good thing that someone is pushing development of EVs.

    I agree with everything you're saying.

    As soon as the energy storage is solved, evs are the way to go.

    But that's in the future. Right now, they are sold to people for bragging rights as the third or fourth car.

    I had a car that had a range of 200 miles on a tank of gas, and it was a pain in the ass. It seemed that I was always looking for a gas station.

    Aren't the majority of cars sold for bragging rights of some kind or another.."My truck is bigger than yours", "my BMW is ultimate driving machine", "My Saab makes everyone think I'm an architect", "my Sonata makes me look like a >____fill in the blank_____<" etc....

    Agreed, but we need early adopters buying sub-optimal technology to help finance the development that's going to get us there.
