    Dang.....this poor company has been getting some horrible press in recent weeks with cars almost killing their drivers due to automatic drive fuck ups and now one of their premium models just spontaneously bursting into flames.:wtf::wtf:

    This is a top story on DRUDGE right now and many social media outlets as this Tesla was owned by a Hollywood star!

    :oops-28::oops-28::oops8:

    Actress Mary McCormack claims her husband's Tesla Model S 'spontaneously combusted' | Daily Mail Online

    With EV sales being so shitty, this is the last thing the industry needs, especially when Tesla reliability records have been historically crappy.

    Slow what? :laughing0301:

    Too, almost all of the rest of the country rejects what goes on in California! In fact, so much news coming out of California lately, like painting their streets white, makes people shit their pants from laughing so hard.

    I haven't heard about painting their streets white, but using lighter colored asphalt has long been a safety feature used all across the country. Lighter color gives better reflection from headlights making night driving much safer. Are you against safer night driving?

    You missed it then since it was in the news back in April and talked about here in the forum:

    Los Angeles painting city streets white in bid to combat climate change


    Photos in the link, it cost only $40,000 per mile.

    Costs don't matter to these meatheads. Invariably with these idiots, if it sounds good do it. The thinking is fascinating to me!

    I guess I did miss that. Reducing road heat by 10 degrees will make the roads last longer and lower the ambient temperature. Sounds like a great idea.

    No it doesn't make that much difference since the reflection will now go into cars, buildings and people instead. The amount of incoming energy from the sun remains the same in the area, just redistributed a little bit.

    It is a massive waste of money, that could have been used elsewhere for a much greater return.

    Much better to grow a lot more trees instead, which has a double benefit.
