April Fools day
... has a Tesla theme?

Elon himself better be careful or the SEC will haunt him again, claims Bloomberg. The SEC does not swallow more bankwupt jokes with Teslaquila.

But Elon released a rap that could only be of use to take Sentry mode to the Ludicrous level...

Oh, and this:

Late to the party, but CNN joined the fun nonetheless:

Tesla is probably about to report the largest drop in auto sales in the company's history.

That's not a shock —Tesla faced some special circumstances last quarter. But it's still a concern: Tesla needs to keep its sales pace high to pay down its sizable debts.
Tesla will report first quarter sales and production figures Tuesday, and Wall Street analysts expect them to be sharply lower than the 90,700 cars that the company sold and delivered to customers last quarter. Analysts predict Tesla delivered just over 50,000 cars over the last three months.
(Just try to imagine what the largest drop in Tesla sales so far amounts to ;))

There's the odd chance they aren't joking though.
But Tesla will publish Q1 numbers shortly while Bloomberg indicates Model 3 production has gone up (by almost 30%), not down...

At least CNN can escape embarrassment by pointing to their publishing date.

You will not save animals with a synthetic meat that cost 5x more than real meat.

In the same way you will not reduce oil consume with a electric cars like Tesla. Until we get low cost and high energy density battery, electric cars will be just a dream or a extravagance for richies.

I don't know anything about Harambe, but I'm certain killing the animal was the right thing to do. Crazy how that stuff makes news amid thousands of more tragic stories that happen every day.

My guess is lab grown meat will become the cheap way to eat meat. Same with EVs. Everything is more expensive until it isn't.

Synthetic meat grown in robot farms. And a virtual world to keep the synthetic meat pacified. Hmm...

All zoo animals die for our sins, Harambe just put a face on it.

What's more important to me is the song.

Elon Musk combined a Twitter joke, a years-old meme and Auto-Tune into a surprise new song called “RIP Harambe,” which the Tesla CEO uploaded onto SoundCloud this weekend.

This might be my finest work,” the SpaceX boss said of the track, which he posted on his fictitious Emo G Records’ SoundCloud page between tweets about the Tesla Semi; Emo G is a play on emoji, a callback to a Musk joke from earlier in the weekend. “I’m disappointed that my record label failed,” he added.

Meat lab will take too long to became affordable, viable or cheaper than real meat.

I bet more in next generations of quality meat replacements made from vegetable proteins, mimicking texture and flavor.

It's easier to make meat taste like meat than to make plants taste like meat and deliver the same protein and fats.

What is too long in the course of human history? Perhaps the time needed to develop lab meat will be beyond my lifetime (I doubt it), but it will probably happen eventually.

I'm not saying it's not a shame, I'm just saying it isn't newsworthy. The only people that mourn the loss of the animal are in the human species.

Sure, other animals can feel a sense of loss, but they don't comprehend the future and fear it like humans, and don't suffer the loss of peers like we do.

Concerning the ethics of zoos... I haven't given it much thought. My daughter is not free to go anywhere and lives in captivity to my wife and I, but in return we ensure her health, safety, and wellbeing.

Lab meat can't drop much in price, since it require milion of nano filaments to make a single hamburguer, and so hundreds of mini cases to grow and collect the nano filaments.

Meat replacements made from plants uses rich protein extracts, and it can get many tastes. If researchs progress it can in a near future became as good as meat in terms of taste.

About the gorilla shot, I supose there was no good alternatives, since sedation took minutes and the dart tranquilliser shot could had scared the gorilla and so put the child in danger.
