    In sympathy with my friends to the south of me (and hoping not to offend) ... Hitler rants about Carmageddon.

    (For those of you unaware, the busiest freeway in the US, the 405, is shut down for two days.)

    Our SoCalGreenSpeed Los Angeles area Tesla club is planning an "Escape from LA" trip to visit fellow SoCal owners in San Diego this weekend.

    That link goes to Carmageddon set to the Carmina Burana, not to a Hitler rant. But I'm not surprised if someone has put Carmageddon subtitles to the usual Hitler rant video.

    Edit: Oops! It changed! The first time I clicked on it, it went to Carmina Burana. Now it goes to Hitler.

    HERE is the video it went to the first time I clicked

    What happened? It never even made the news on the east coast. Did it all fizzle out like Y2K?

    Fizzled, crashed and burned. Everyone stayed home and the freeways were empty. They also opened it a day early since it didn't take as long as anticipated to demolish the bridge.
