My favorite one:

Tesla’s all-electric cars recharge their batteries by using regenerative braking systems. Simply put, when the brakes are applied, the battery gets a slight charge. This can cause issues for those who require or appreciate long highway drives, as the car has virtually no opportunity to self-charge.

Highway drives mean that battery power will quickly become an issue.

I've solved this problem by leaving my foot on the brake!

"While it remains true that Tesla cars do not omit emissions, Motor Junkie released a recent article which documents the fact that this does not make them “environmentally friendly.” According to this report, the process involved in producing the battery for one Tesla vehicle emits more emissions from the factory than driving a gas-powered car for 8 years. Yikes!"

This would have had too be written by an idiot.
