Sir, I think Meedumrer is well done...
This is even darker than that new paint recently posted. I can’t believe I am responsible for getting a puppy barbecued. I will have to sleep on the couch if my wife hears about this. Love the details. You took the fake news to a whole new level. Impressive.

Makes sense. Hummer has 800v charging. CT can’t be outdone.

So we got our m3 12/26/20 and after seeing the Munro live, my wife went right out to check our panel gaps. They are fantastic. Very even and our paint looks very nice as well.

I don’t expect to see the updated Cybertruck until the Tesla earnings call on the 27th.

Don't know who that is but some think Nikola Tesla was the model for John Gault.

And for those who aren't familiar with the expression it is a rhetorical question meaning "I haven't the faintest idea."
Galt or Gault?

I assume that's the rhetorical form? But, of course, the parallels to Elon Musk are there.

My use of the phrase here was perhaps a little strong as it might be more fully interpreted as "With every thing so screwed up, who knows?" Some might feel that society is as screwed up as it was for John Galt but we hope that Tesla enjoys a future much brighter than Twentieth Century Motors! Maybe if they'd moved to Texas?

Meedumrer lives, he is only slightly altered.

I can’t believe he has lost his better half. Nothing is more sad than a dog that can’t show his affection by humping the guest legs. I think we need a Return of Meedumer script to put him out of his misery for good.

We meet John Galt in the book. He's the leader of the selfish utopia in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged.

It sounds like a rhetorical question at the beginning of the book. The question is thoroughly answered when our protagonist crashes Galt's Gulch.

"Who is John Galt" is a kind of a shibboleth that allows people who've read Ayn Rand's books to recognize each other.

I've read the books, but no longer subscribe to the philosophy.

The thinking in Atlas Shrugged made a lot of sense to me when I was a young man and my only responsibility was to make a place for myself in the adult world. As an adult who has children and who experiences the push-pull of the social fabric, I find her writing to be less than insightful.

I have gone back and forth over the years about the message that Ayn Rand is sending, and I do agree that it seems more appealing to younger adults. I do not see Galt’s society as selfish per se. Did you really mean that? They are about honoring excellence and not bowing to the lowest common denominator. And what she had to say about government would ring true for Libertarians I suppose. All this said I liked the presentation of the question here.

Finally! News about cybertruck! Elon just confirmed the reworked duel and single motor CT has a mid gate. The tri motor will not get mid gate because the bigger battery pack prevents it.



This is fake news.
