I Will Make Covid-19 Respect Me

Everyone wants things to reopen. Nobody is happy having to shelter in place or being concerned about money or not being able to do what we have been doing all our lives. However, Covid-19 is just not cooperating


Thoughts On The Tesla Drama & Covid-19

May 14th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

I've never seen the Tesla-fan community so split as I've seen it this month. I don't mean in a minor way, either. I've seen numerous longtime Tesla supporters, owners, and shareholders passionately debating matters such as the threat of covid-19, how society should respond, how Tesla should respond, the validity and persuasiveness (or lack thereof) of Elon Musk's tweets, and who is a stupid jackass versus who isn't.

At the moment, we have had over a quarter million deaths due to covid-19. This death toll will continue to rise until the virus infects everyone and causes millions of deaths, or until we defeat it, either by social distancing and contact tracing, a vaccine, a treatment, or whatever tools we employ, including new technologies.
