    Coronavirus

    I'm done with masks, except where a particular store or company requires me to wear one to patron their location. The entire point of a vaccine is to protect us and get past this.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    FSD is valuable only if you are going to use that feature. Otherwise, it doesn't add much to the resale value of the car.

    Applying options strategy 'the wheel' to TSLA

    I doubt our calls amount to a drop in the ocean of calls for TSLA. Macros have taken a steaming dump the past 8 weeks. I squarely blame inflation rearing it's head and the big boys making a run out of growth stocks.

    Supercharger - San Marcos, CA (under construction Apr 2021)

    Highly doubt it. That's just 2 weeks away, and I didn't see all the gear on site, nor a transformer.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    Full 10k price. If they can get FSD for 5k, and you want it, you should negotiate that to have them make the purchase before you complete the transaction. I would ask for a screenshot on their phone that FSD can still be bought for 5k. I have not heard of this, and have my doubts.

    NASA selects SpaceX Starship system to land on moon

    Meanwhile Bezo's competitor to even the Falcon 9 has not ferried passengers or cargo . . . anywhere. Kudos to them demonstrating it can land, but they don't have the flight history of the Falcon 9, and the New Glenn is much further behind development than Starship.

We knew AWS was not even in contention for this...

    This smells so badly of PORK, it's not even funny. Can't beat 'em technologically, go line the politician's pockets.

    Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Discussion Thread

    To everyone here that previously took the argument about BTC mining being "not environmentally damaging" etc. - I'm pretty sure Elon just gave you all a big:

    All discussion of Lucid Motors

    Which is still nothing but good press for Tesla.

    And . . . gone. Yeah, there is no "demand problem" for Tesla, for sure.

    Applying options strategy 'the wheel' to TSLA

    I generally look at max pain, and then the call wall(s) to see what hurdle there might be if "big news" comes out. I also try to keep tabs on the main investment thread for any news that hasn't hit mainstream, but that's been harder with work, since the "signal to noise" ratio of that thread...
