So when is Tesla going to start selling toilet paper? I hear that's a valuable commodity. The lockdowns back in March showed me the value of having an item in short supply. Stocking up now and will open my own curbside TP stand, will make a killing in the coming months when we head back in to another Lockdown. :ROFLMAO:

I seem to remember the lightning bolt on Tesla products...

Lordstown has a lightning bolt? Never registered.

I haven't seen the Tesla lightning bolt, but if they have used it before, maybe Lordstown was trolling Elon....

Tesla launches own tequila with crazy-looking bottle and high price tag

https://electrek.co/2020/11/05/tesla-launches-tequila-price/

Tesla has finally launched its tequila with a crazy-looking bottle and a very high price tag.

Yet another Elon Musk joke that becomes reallity.

From a fart machine inside Tesla vehicles to flamethrowers, Elon Musk had plenty of strange ideas that sounded like jokes but became reality.

Now add Teslaquila to that list.

Back in 2018, Musk poked fun at Tesla haters with an April Fool’s joke about the company going bankrupt.

As part of the joke, Musk wrote that he was found “passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by “Teslaquila” bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.

Later, the company actually filed a trademark for ‘Teslaquila’ (though it has been contested), but nothing happened with it until now.

Today, Tesla went ahead and launched its own tequila, now just called Tesla Tequila, and started taking orders for $250 on its website:

It is only available in the US and can only delivered to states that all delivery of alcohol.

The tequila has been packaged in a crazy-looking lightning strike-shape bottle.

Tesla writes in the description of the product:


The fact that it aged for more than year might explain why it took so long between announcing the product and actually bringing it to market.

Tesla appears to have partnered with Nosotros to produce the tequilla and Speakeasy Co, an alcohol branding and distributing company, to distribute the product.

Electrek’s Take
I am not that surprised that Elon took the job all the way to making the product, but I can’t believe that they actually got me.

I am a whiskey guy. Never really developed a taste for tequila, but they got me with that bottle. It looks so cool, I had to order one or two. Alright, two.

Now I am $500 poorer. Thanks Elon.
I tried to get it and I was too late sold out after few days...Lucky you...Poor me!

I don't expect to see toilet paper shortages during the second wave.

COVID-19 didn't cause the toilet paper shortages directly. The shift to work-from-home caused the toilet paper shortages.

There were essentially two distinct toilet paper supply chains: one residential, one commercial.

Demand cratered in the commercial toilet paper market (because fewer people are spending time outside of the home), and surged in the residential toilet paper market.

The companies who supplied commercial toilet paper have worked out how to adapt their product and process to supply residential customers, and now we no longer have a shortage of residential toilet paper.

The market solved the problem, but imperfectly -- which is where it gets interesting. Econ 101 just says the market will adapt over the long term, which did happen. But the short-term disruption is fascinating!

Since the second or third wave won't create a another shift to WFH, I don't anticipate further toilet paper supply disruptions.

That said, I did buy a bidet during that craziness in order to diversify my hygiene options. 4/5 stars, would recommend.

// I'm an armchair economist. This is not my real job. Take what I have to say as amateur analysis.

I bought 2 and I don't even drink. I will keep it unopen as long as I live. More like for collecting. I missed out on Tesla previously offered like the flame thrower and the CT remote control CT.
