    I see the average is dropping is that what you mean? Maybe I'm missing something significant in the image.

    Very cute.

    It helps to have some medical background.

    On a side note, my news station yesterday was talking about the GM recall of switches that it chose to ignore for years. The newscaster said, "This can happen to ANY car." After he said it a second time, I emailed the station. Not all cars have mechanical key switches, engines, belt drive electrical systems, transmissions, etc., etc.

    Happily driving a Tesla Model S, which will NOT stall or die because of faulty mechanical switches.

    Did the car also give you a solid tone?

    The graph looks like an ECG (I think I have that right- not a medical professional).. of someone who's heart just stopped.

    Yes. The song below is genius.

    This explains it pretty well

    I guess the car should have ate more Cheerios, instead of electrons.

    Fine v-fib and then a shock would probably be a blast to attempt. New goal!

    All Model S come with a 240V defibrillator in the trunk.

    You should have put "joke" in the subject line.

    ...inside joke. But of course you then take out your UMC, hook it up, and deliver an appropriate shock and see if you can restore systole....

    When you guys have finished, leave the rest to me...I'm a pathologist and am used to cleaning up after you.
