Still off in the future, but it sounds promising. And what a great name!

94 years old and still kickin' it ???

I hope somebody gets a tissue sample from that guy before he dies so
future generations can see what such a genome looks like.


I have a personal theory about electric cars: once somebody starts
selling cars with a "Thousand-Mile Battery" electric cars will start
going mainstream.

I've been reading posts from Tesla owners on Quora.com and at least one
guy got rid of his "Backup" gas-powered car after he realized that he
had not used it in some very long time period and another guy had driven
his Tesla coast-to-coast with no particular hassles beyond planning
charging stops.

I was looking at Teslas the other day - until I found out that the one
that at least comes close to fitting my non-standard body costs over 80
grand.... Geeze, talk about sticker shock !!.

I guess I'm back to reality and the idea of trading my 2005 F-150 in for
a post-2009 (side airbags) Chevy or GMC pickup.... -)

I spent an hour with a friend examining their Model X in great detail a
shopping mall display. The salesman (or whatever he was) was extremely
knowledgeable, and while I'm no longer much of a car guy, the machine
was pretty darned awesome.

I guess I could sell my house and use the money to buy one...

The Model X's price is just slightly more than we paid for our house.

Here's a cute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lItIyxGZUZQ
"Here's Why the Tesla Model X in and Awful Car".
Spoiler: It isn't....
