    ...Tesla Catches On Fire and Destroys Three Buildings Leaving Countless Homeless :scared:



    As it was the actual story title was, “Illegally Parked BMW Smashed By Boston Firefighters Was Brand New”. Buried at the end of the article...



    "...firefighters traced the source of the flames to the engine of a Toyota parked in an alley, spreading fire to three nearby buildings, leaving residents like Jaime Hernandez homeless."

    Same here. My first thought was "Where's the outrage against Toyota?" (...and I OWN a Toyota and have been pretty happy with it so it's not like I have anything against the company)

    Always wanting to look on the bright side of things, this type of electron microscope scrutiny of MS made Tesla produce a near perfect vehicle. Thank you (media, world, other manufacturers,,,) for the very nice and most welcome side effect associated with your being incredibly biased and un-accepting of new technology.
