    Didn't find this here yet, so I thought I'd post this interesting bit of news from yesterday, where a Tesla driver on an Autobahn near Munich in Germany pulled a stunt - during rush hour! - to save the life of another driver who had lost control of his VW Passat due to a medical emergency.

    Sorry it's in German, but I guess Google translate wil be your friend :)

    Pretty cool story.

    What I find hilarious is I tried google translate, and the last section translated as:

    It is sausage
    Around 2000 euro damage was incurred, the report says. "Of course I tried to slow it down as much as possible, but that did make a little dach," Manfred Kick said about the crucial seconds of his rescue operation.

    He had only a few thoughts about the scratches on his car: "This was my first sausage," says the hero from Garching, "metal is replaceable." (Ba)

    "Ist mir Wurst" literally translates as "is me sausage", which of course doesn't make sense. But "Ist mir Wurst" actually means "I don't care".

    Thank you Mr. Musk. That's so like you, but still impressive and surprising to see someone willing to do. Wonderful gesture on your part. Thank you again.
