    I’m out on the Tesla 3, my 2002 Honda Civic has some life left in her still and there are plenty of other things to waste money on.

    That said, I do love my electric lawn mower. Weighs less than a gas job, and it never stalls, floods, or runs out of gas.

    Quoted from MrBally:

    How often have you replaced or had the battery pack(s) rebuilt? My son works at a Batteries Plus. A neighbor has a nice battery powered lawn mower. She has him rebuild the packs. He's rebuilt the set a 2nd time in four years.

    I'm like the other fools in this thread, corded mower and loving it! The cord has its annoyances but is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, and after years f#*king around with gas mowers as a kid, I'm very happy to just plug 'er in, hit the power button, and start mowing. I'm not a masochist, if I had a huge lawn I'd get a rider-mower. But the plug-in is perfect for small to mid-sized.

    Quoted from o-din:

    Lucky. Now will you go back to your happy thread and stay there? Obviously you made a wrong turn.

    Speaking of wrong turns, how are you missing out on the Munsters thread? Or were you preemptively booted?

    Quoted from Brijam:

    The problem is, your responses are textbook 'don't make these mistakes when trying to debate.'
    The biggest thing you do is to use personal attacks like you just did there calling me an ASS, which also violates rule #1 on the board here.
    Do you think you can stop that and just be civil?

    To be fair, you did just call him an ignoramus. Or is that permissible under Robert's Rules of Order so long as you let Isaac Asimov deliver the insult for you?

    #260 1 year ago
    Quoted from Brijam:

    Willfully ignorant, to be specific. Honestly it wasn't meant as an insult, more as a friendly wake up call.
    I don't think we should let people get away with being willfully ignorant. Opinions, sure, believe what you want. But if a person is presented with facts that refute a claim, and they choose to ignore that and don't present facts to back up their assertion, that's willfully being ignorant. It needs to be called out. It's time to start drawing a line, people.
    Or is that kind of behavior okay now?

    If you want to discuss the facts -- presumably you meant the facts about Tesla Model 3, not the facts about o-din -- then why are you derailing the conversation with complaints about his debate technique? If he's hiding behind willful ignorance as you say, that should be plain enough to the neutral reader without condescending comments from you and Isaac Asimov.

    [EDIT: Looking back, you're also off in the weeds about his cell phone plan and his boss's liberal internet usage policies -- what does any of that have to do with the Tesla Model 3?]

    Quoted from Brijam:

    Hello there, 'stay on topic policeman.' I admit to the error of my ways and hereby confess to derailing the topic on multiple occasions.

    Top o' the morning, 'Captain Supercilious.'

    Quoted from o-din:

    You can't even see that you are the one that has been personally attacking me can you?

    You're being trolled, brother. He's got some legitimate points about the car yet he can't help but make it personal. On the up side, he's clearly winning the internet. So he's got that going for him, which is nice.

    Quoted from rubberducks:

    I see contractors' vans (who they sub the work out to) parked in this neighbourhood often, working on Teslas that have broken down. Only spoke to one of the engineers, but he said they often wake up dead or with major systems dead, rather than developing serious faults out on the road.

    The boys in marketing can work with this one -- "Safety First - Dies in the Garage, Not on the Highway"

    Quoted from goatdan:

    I am interested that there is a whole thread dedicated to people who supposedly aren't interested in Tesla badmouthing Tesla because... ???

    o-din wanted to talk Tesla and they kicked him out of the other thread, so he started his own. I think that about sums it up!

    Quoted from JosiahCox:

    For fuck sakes, let your janitor smoke some weed. Chill out. He isn’t hurting anybody.

    Quoted from MrBally:

    FFS, these are not my rules. This is how large corporations operate. Especially publicly traded ones.
    If I have to live by these rules, others working in the same environment need to. From the loveliest technician to the Chairman of the Board.

    Some companies still do drug testing, especially for employees that operate heavy equipment or the like. But I doubt most Fortune 500 companies would fire you if you posted a picture of yourself smoking weed in your free time.

    The actual issue here is that if you’re a CEO of a major corporation who has been behaving erratically in recent weeks and your Board is expressing concerns about your drug use (Ambien), letting yourself be recorded smoking a giant joint seems like yet more erratic behavior. Yeah, if you watch the tape he says it’s not something he does much, but as a CEO you don’t have the luxury or saying “watch the whole tape,” you have to think about public perception. Or not, I guess, but at the risk of your stock price and potentially your job.

    Would this matter on its own? No. As one piece of evidence in a growing narrative that Musk is behaving erratically and is out touch with the realities of his situation? Yes. Whether or not that narrative is correct, he should be aware of it because it will absolutely affect his business.
