Tesla and Elon Musk are killing people for no reason and will never get close to producing a true AP

    Do you own or have you driven a Tesla with autopilot?

    Tesla AP equipped cars have less air bag deployments (NHTSA) and lower crash rates (IIHS) than similar Teslas without AP.

    I recommend:

    When Tesla hires you to speak for them I will un-ignore you.

    With all due respect, you’re completely unhinged and incredible offensive.

    Just saying.

    So much I was going to say in response, but it's clearly not worth it.

    And it's Laurel.

    It can only be Laurel. All of you that hear Yanny, not sure what’s wrong with you.

    Well, if it takes the OP “6-45 seconds of time to gain the proper level of situation awareness to take the right action“ there’s your problem right there.

    Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to drive, and should just use Uber. It would make driving in Pittsburg safer.

    Laurel, clearly.

    From the analysis I heard of that audio clip, the words "yanni" and "laurel" are both there at different frequencies. People who have poor high frequency hearing tend to hear laurel. Also playing the clip on a sound system with a strong base you will tend to hear "laurel". Children who tend to have better high frequency hearing tend to hear "yanni".

    I heard a story on it in the car and I heard "ganni". I haven't tried with other sound systems yet.

    Best tweet I’ve seen on the Laurel/Yanni subject
    @MarleeMatlin: Yanni or Laurel? Don't ask me. I can't hear sh*t
