The Friday hawt chicks & links thread returns after a one week hiatus due to the miseries of moving. I’m still not out of the woods yet but the internets have returned so hopefully the worst is behind me. And even if I had had a connection last week that still would have made little difference as I lacked any time to scour the web for morsels of interest for my ravenous fans who crouch on the other side of their respective monitors around the world like mutant predators, their cavernous appetites for links and hawtness befouling the very atmosphere that surrounds their putrid forms.
Ya missed me, right?
On to it.
Tesla drivers are the automobile versions of iphone owners.
Question: How can you tell the difference between Elon Musk and an ordinary Tesla owner?
Answer: Elon Musk will eventually stop talking about his Tesla.
I can’t wait until humans begin to colonise space so we can have an official douchebag planet and just send them all there.
Oh look, more Tesla – A quarter of deposits for the new model 3 have been refunded.
In its latest earnings release, Tesla blamed order cancellations on “delays in production in general and delays in availability of certain planned options, particularly dual motor AWD and the smaller battery pack.”
In other words they may as well just have said, “our product sucks and our crappy business model means we can’t even keep your money.” Also, check out the photo of people buying Teslas that accompanies the article:
Soy boy city limits.
This week’s long form article for you to enjoy – The far side of the Vistula.
Lest anyone is still in any doubt about McDonnell’s leadership manoeuvres, they need only look down at the bottom left hand corner of the poster to see the little red rectangle which says: “red Labour, red Britain”. McDonnell is not only waiting for Corbyn to fall, he has already unilaterally rebranded the Labour Party (note the lack of the Labour red rose logo) and has ensured that its direction of travel is well to the left.
It was the first thing that I noticed about the image. Red Labour, Red Britain? They’re not even bothering to hide it any more. Could that American trollop who just married into the royal family be the modern version of Mary Antoinette?
California has passed a law making it illegal to shower and do your laundry on the same day.
Oh, and don’t worry, rich people. There will be “provisions for swimming pools, spas, and other water features.” So you can still have your pretty fountains and pools while the rest of the peons take 2 showers a week. One might wonder if ‘variances” will apply to the wealthy for their landscaping needs.
The control of resources has been a standard feature of all human civilizations. If you want to make money in a future California there could be a healthy market for black market water. Just sayin’.
Hey everyone – apparently recycling might just be a scam!
It has become an article of faith in the U.S. that recycling is a good thing. But evidence is piling up that recycling is a waste of time and money, and a bit of a fraud.
The New York Times recently reported that, unknown to most families who spend hours separating garbage into little recycling bins, much of the stuff ends up in a landfill anyway.
Some of us have been saying this for a very long time.
The Other McCain has a list of TV shows that he never watched.
I’m pretty sure I’ve never watched more than five consecutive minutes of How I Met Your Mother. I don’t enjoy most sitcoms, and that one in particular never interested me. Seinfeld was awesome, and I occasionally catch an episode of The Big Bang Theory, but in general, I can’t stand TV “comedy” from the past three decades. It’s too predictable.
He obviously hasn’t watched Fixer Upper yet.
Also, Melinda Gates is an SJW. Possibly the biggest and scariest one yet.
Obviously, I’m no expert on high-tech venture capital, but is it self-evidently true that “women and minorities” have a monopoly on “great ideas”? Because that seems to be what Mrs. Gates is implying: By “over-indexing” such ventures — putting a thumb on the scale, to discriminate against white males — she expects to make more profit. Or is profit even her goal?
Diverting herself from the fact that she married the lead actor from Revenge of the Nerds is her goal, for which we shall all suffer.
