    Elon Musk

    That was a strange post - he is hating on the headcount move and worried at the same time? If it is an employee, he is already decided and can't be both. My guess is Elon simply wants the entitled ones out.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    You hit the nail on the head. What kind of a person is voicing upside for Russia for other reasons than advocating for more arms for Ukraine to fight back?

    I guess Tesla is finally on the way to bankwuptcy now ... if only they had had wifi and parking lots ... at least the msn microsoft site doesn't have a paywall...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    My hope is that July builds go to Europe ;)

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Just an update here for long time lurkers. Seems like the quality is finally getting there, "The service advisor told us early on our visit that Tesla is so confident about the panels and doors, that they don't accept any requests to adjust them anymore" and also the "dreaded acceleration...

    Elon Musk

    Best of both worlds could be that Elon runs "all things new and cutting edge or otherwise first principles" in Tesla and someone else runs "day-to-day operations, quality control, public perception, etc.". It is important to have someone as ambitious as Elon in the sence of cutting edge...

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    Partly true if you think the battery is recyclable at a higher rate so in effect you are only delaying the full benefit of the battery - eventually it will be fully utilized when recycled one way or another.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    My guess is it's like having a handgun, the likelihood of a firearm shooting a perpetrator is smaller than the likelihood it (accidentally or otherwise) harms family members or guests. Basically the risks are of sabotage and of foreign power trying to elmiinate the nukes which could both lead to...

    Model S vs Model X

    Yeah, accept delvery, enjoy it with your friends and family, and then decide. Reselling prices are so good you will win win any way you go.

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    Also good to keep in mind, the carbon footprint of your car is larger if your battery capacity is larger (due to manufacturing of the battery), so any excess range would not be ecological. "Producing a 75 kilowatt-hour battery for a Tesla Model 3, considered on the larger end of batteries for...

    On a side note, Finns will never accept nukes on their territory. https://www.icanw.org/finns_want_the_government_to_join_the_tpnw

    Mistake was made with Hungary and almost Italy ... Poland has it's issues too.

    Elon Musk

    I want to toast for the national cool-aid, though 🥃 Wonder why we feel inclined to find something positive to say when we should put our focus on fixing the wrongs ... maybe B. F. Skinner can shed some light ...

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    You had one error in your estimate, for road trips, you always charge to 100% but yes range will be affected by weather. However, combining supercharging (or equivalent) with destination charging (allows you to arrive at low charge) the range becomes a non-issue for real-world road-tripping. I...

    Convoluted coup plots in Russia

    Elon & Twitter

    Twitter doesn't need employees, it's run by an algorithm /s Seriously though, Twitter is seriously overstaffed or I don't know what Twitter does

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    The people seem all railed up enough for support of Ukraine. Germany is much controlled by "organizations", though, as was evident in the case of Giga Berlin, and nautral gas is needed for casting, maybe that's where the Achille's heel lies.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Ukraine's strength seems to be solely dependent on foreign aid - to me, the only thing in question is Russia's strength and endurance. Why would they want a stronger Russia? OR do they want Russia to fall on its own sword, that by ruining Ukraine they will be under sanctions forever with no way out?

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Can someone explain why its seems some western countries are dragging their feet? Namely France, Austria, and Germany? Have there been personal threats to the people making decisions or something more convoluted?

    I wonder if they recruit directly from the field?

    Refreshing approach:

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    In war, morals are an illusion, so the only aspect that matters, is whether it would be pragmatic. If they joined forces with separatists from around and within Russia, it might become even pragmatic, so much so that even reaching Moscow would become unnecessary.

    He should have added Tesla logo into the mix ...

    It surprises me, where is the element of surprise, when they announce weapons deliveries in advance? Or do they?

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Listening to this (translation) it actually feels Ukraine should play with Russia and push them back and forth to utrely grind them down, finish them, instead of trying to push them out of the Ukraine territory. The other countries subjugated by Russia will eventually rise up once the Russian...

    Model S LR vs Audi GT

    I would argue that interior size wise, Audi is same size as Model 3, yes?

    Would You Order One with a Non-Glass Roof?

    I wrap it during summer because I don't enjoy blasting the air conditioning with cold temperature. In the winter it probably contributes to nicer and warmer feel on the inside.

    Poll: Are you in favor or against U.S. doing more in Ukraine?

    You're basically discussing same thing here on mostly your own so I thought I'd invite you there. The more the merrier.

    We can make a bet on it and watch how it goes, whether these will be used for defense or extra-territorial offense.

    What happens if the rate of increase exceeds the incarceration capacity (both personnel and facilities)?

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Russians admit sanctions are working, now press hard and don't release sanctions until rebuilding Ukraine and war crimes are paid for.

    Wonder how much of mentality in Russia can be explained by the conformity effect: Wonder how social media amplifies this.... QAnon etc.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    First, I was surprised by this: But then I had a look at who owns New York Times. A big chunk of it is BlackRock Fund Advisors which is trying to play nice with Russia since they are still conducting business there.

    No. It's a slippery slope. However, it seems to be a slippery slope the other way around too:

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Thanks, makes sense. So, in essence, Ukraine is like the Troyan horse of russia. All people willing to fight against russian leadership can now join to defend Ukraine, even Russians are welcome:

    Can someone explain what's happening here? What is a Battalion in this context? What is a Regiment in this context? Are these paramilitary? Are these legal?

    What made you choose a Tesla?

    Performance+Efficiency/Range+Interior space, Safety and Tech are icing on the cake. Wouldn't necessarily choose Tesla if it had any less Performance+Efficiency/Range+Interior space, but it has been good for he buck.

    How does Tesla insurance penalize for this, does it become more expensive than State Farm if you drive at will?

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Don't cancel it. With this rate of inflation, you'll make a huge amount of money selling it whenever it arrives, assuming they don't deliver you an equally old build as the price you pay for it.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Ukraine is economically so weak after the war that unless condoned by the west, such thing cannot occur. Lot of it is in the air, though:

    People are constantly moving so the concept of origin is quite silly. At different times, people will be in different places, depends on what time period you are comparing to. Add to that the eath is travelling through space.
