    Saw this over in the Short-Term TSLA Price Movements thread and thought it deserves to be called out....

    Yeah, April Fool's... but here's hoping that some of their execs see this and get another little nudge towards coming to their senses. Yeah, I know, that won't happen until they see their sales clobbered.

    Moved to off-topic? Interesting interpretation. I took this "April Fools" story to be a thinly-veiled commentary on why Toyota and Honda should abandon hydrogen and embrace pure battery electric. In other words, very much on topic.

    Presumably if the author had made his argument without humor, the moderator would then consider it on topic?? The humor doesn't change the message, it just makes it a good read.

    Also, sticking "April Fools" in the title is quite the spoiler. It's like renaming "The Sixth Sense" as "Dead Guy Doesn't Know He's Dead". Oh well....
