    So I recently heard from Travis Kalanick the case about why ride sharing is just a great idea :

    On average people use their car 4% of the day, 96% of the day it is stored. And 20% of our lands (urban) is used to store the cars.


    What a waste of an asset right ?

    My underwear utilization rate is under 4%. Most of the things we own are not optimized. I'm not sharing my cars with strangers and their b.o.

    reduces traffic? Reducing the cost and increasing the convenience of private transportation will increase traffic.

    No reduce it as less people will need to own a car.

    There are lots of people already planning to buy Model 3 to share on Tesla Network 100%.
    If the math works out, it might be profitable to share your 'spare' car on the TN which would easily pay for itself, electricity, and maintenance.

    While I don't expect to share my car on the Tesla Network, I will probably end up being a customer of it instead of buying a new Tesla.

    And make money, so you can buy more Tesla shares, and then an other Tesla that you might want to use only for yourself this time...

    In my case it means I have 20 pair of underwear sitting ideal in a drawer that could be rented out in the sharing economy.

    How much real estate is taken to store your irresponsibly vast underwear supplies?

    Longer term, you wouldn't make much money. Supply and demand. Just like Uber drivers.
