    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I'm financially comfortable and in my seventies. TESLA has helped a lot, but we would still be OK with out it. It's less than 25% of my portfolio, and I sleep well. My recommendation for obtaining wealth has always been to live well below your means, and to invest the reminder. Whenever I...

    My 2016 MS 90D gives an EPA range of about 265 miles at 100%, down from 285 when new, 5+ years ago. I can comfortably go 220 miles at 80 MPH from a full charge and still arrive with 10% charge left. Always get a little less than displayed range, but not significantly. I don't understand why...

    I always thought the biggest benefit from radar was the ability to measure relative speed at a distance, say 50-300 yards. If you don't think radar is better at that task, just ask the officer next time you get pulled over for speeding, I know my binocular vision is challenged estimating...

    Are S&P funds allowed to loan shares to shorts? If so, doesn't that add some shares back into the float and reduce the impact of the demand from inclusion. Not a finance person, just a dumb engineer.

    The nerd in me want the phrase to be: "Pulling on All Poles" An electric motor has multiple poles which are pulled by magnetic forces. Accurate phrase, but not familiar enough to catch on with the general public.

    My understanding was that the cap gain holiday was only for stock bought during the "holiday". Gains would not be taxed when they are sold in the future. Existing shares owned would be taxed as now.

    230v outlets should be rated for at least 30A with a 40A breaker (old dryer connections). Newer ones with a NEMA 14-50 outlet should have a 50A breaker and be able to charge at 40A. Full charge time should not be more than 8-10 hours max.
