2020 Annual Shareholder Meeting and Battery Day

Live as of posting. Introductory comments now, meeting before Elon.

Not enough time in my day today.

edit; off by 2 minutes.

Welp, I guess we have to solve r*cism and s*xism before we can get to how to get the cobalt out. Foist things foist.

2nd edit: Tesla drive-in movie theater!

3rd edit: When it comes to sustainable energy, Mr. Musk is an accelerationist. I guess that explains Ludicrous Speed.

The funniest part about cobalt is at least 90% of the BEV fan boys are blissfully unaware as to its implications in slavery, child labor, horrifying environmental damage.
I guess they're not gong to care about it until someone tells them to.

Battery day will be about batteries "and a few goodies" Musk said just a minute ago (IIRC)... I like goodies!

The funniest part about cobalt....
The last two proposals in the board meeting show the Marxist-feminists realize if the cobalt and nickel are taken out they lose a leverage fulcrum. Oh, the Iron-y.

edit: They're back....

  • Tabless or all-tab?
  • Elon mesmerized by a bottling plant movie
  • factories running at Ludicrous Speed.
  • cruelty-free cathodes.
  • casting ALchemy.
  • stressed-skin battery packs lighten the rest of the car.
  • $25K car. That's two FUVs.

Wha... the Kato Road facility produces at the rate of 10 GWh per year???
That's 30% of Giga Nevada at less than 5% of the size!

Aaand.... it's complete.

I think this should be shown in every classroom in the country, maybe with the Q&A for extra credit.

One mind-blowing thing after another. Raw silicon anode? Raw nickel cathode? Future Miners of America?

I could have done without the low information SJW complaints with no solutions offered during the investors meeting.

Interesting to hear Musk say the environmental science is not settled, and that his main motivation for Tesla was to address standard of living and scarcity issues for humanity.

That's the main folly of this country, and by proxy, "white people". We seem to think everyone else's problem is ours to solve, and to dictate how others should live.

It's a good thing there isn't some vastly advanced nation that sees the US as backwards, and therefore cut trade with us since we're all slaving away.

That's not to say injury and certain child labor isn't terrible, only that I'm not going to impose my personal "minimum wage" sensibilities on others. Is a tough job worse than no job? Should the US be invading "The People's Republic of Congo" in an effort to liberate them from corruption?

We know when a country is terrible when it includes any of the following words; People's, Democratic, Republic. Maybe Dominican Republic is an exception.
