    The commentator had just finished up a piece on Tesla (and Elon's appearance at TESLIVE was mentioned!), and then moved on to Boeing - he meant to say that the Boeing stock was "Teflon", and it came out "Teslon". Obviously, he conflated "Teflon" and "Tesla". Or, maybe, "Tesla" and "Elon"

    Either way, I like it better that way. :smile:

    A Teslon is the distance between two disruptive innovations.

    A Teslon is a fundamental information particle which disseminates knowledge of leading edge electronic vehicles. In interaction with human consciousness it is known to give rise to car purchasing behaviour, advocacy, stock price appreciation, speeding and a euphoric psycho-somatic condition known as the Tesla Grin.

    The Teslon had a positive spin, while its twin particle - the anti-Teslon - has negative spin. Often emitted by hedge funds and certain Republican politicians, the anti-Teslon has less energy, and its harmful effects are limited by a relatively short half life.
