I saw this yesterday. Glad you posted it.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Surveillance Video of Tesla Exploding in Shanghai Parking Lot Goes Viral

Tesla is adamant that its cars are significantly less likely to catch fire than your average car, as Reuters reports, but that still hasn’t kept a surveillance video from spreading worldwide, showing a Tesla Model S bursting into flame and all but disappearing, Spinal Tap-style, in a parking garage reportedly in Shanghai.

That location is a funny one, as Tesla is gearing up to start making its own cars outside the city, with Gigafactory 3 under construction at the moment.

In any case, all of this blew up on Weibo, China’s other big social media platform that’s not WeChat. Thankfully, a local Tesla owner, Jay in Shanghai, put this all up on Twitter with some translations to make things easier for us.

Here’s a copy of the original video, also posted around by Bloomberg in a wire report:

Here’s what’s purportedly the aftermath, showing the car looking like a husk and not much more than that:

Tesla’s official response on Weibo reads:

    After learning about the incident in Shanghai, we dispatched a team to the scene last night as soon as possible. We are actively liaising with the relevant departments and cooperating with the verification of the situation. According to the current information, there we no casualties.

Here it is being posted:

This lines up with the response that Tesla gave to Reuters, reaching out for comment and publishing this morning:

    “We immediately sent a team onsite and we’re supporting local authorities to establish the facts. From what we know now, no one was harmed,” Tesla said in a statement on Monday.

    It declined comment further when contacted by Reuters.

Jalopnik also reached out for comment from Tesla but only received the same response as given to other publications.

The clock on the vid is running.  It appears to be real time.

🚀 Muskrat vs Bozos in the Battle to see who can Waste more Money

Elon Musk Just Couldn't Stay Quiet About Jeff Bezos' Moon Lander
KRISTIN HOUSER, FUTURISM
10 MAY 2019


On Thursday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' space company Blue Origin presented its plans to reach the Moon, including a brand new design for its "Blue Moon" lander.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk then took to Twitter to crudely imply that Bezos was building unwarranted hype for a plan that wasn't going anywhere — a move that could be read as the ultimate example of "pot calling the kettle black" irony.

In the tweet, Musk writes "Oh stop teasing, Jeff," along with a winky face emoji and a photoshopped image of the lander with "Blue Moon" replaced by the words "Blue Balls," a reference to the uncomfortable feeling that can follow sexual excitement without release.

Maybe Elon Musk has never heard the proverb about how visionary CEOs who consistently fail to make good on their own ambitious promises about space travel shouldn't throw stones. That's how the saying goes, right?
