    lol look at the guy in the right corner of the podium. Was it just me, or was there something strange about his looks? Maybe he was having a bad day or something.....

    I think he's a bodyguard. He keeps watching the audience, looking, looking. And looking concerned.

    and what's this with the "Silver State"? Isn't it time we start calling it the "Lithium State"? I mean, we have moved past the 1850s into the 21st century.

    You beat me to it, just had the same idea when I watched the video with the GF announcement :).
    Or maybe it will be simply the "Giga State".

    Lithium State makes it sound like everyone's on mood stabilizers.

    Reno and Las Vegas are not really known for stabilizing moods.

    And thanks doug for posting the video. Elon Musk came across as his awkward self. Again he made a point of mentioning J B Straubel. I'm convinced that J B Straubel will Tesla's next CEO.
