Such negative comments after that well written blog. Still a few non- believers out there. Only a matter of time though.... | December 9, 2012

Trolls are everywhere...

More comments now, all positive.
Here's the full text (Lee Buck):

"Yesterday I fueled my car for the last time. With luck it may be the last time I ever put fuel into a car. Today I took delivery of a Tesla Model S.
"What first strikes you when you drive the Model S is the silence. As you pull away from the curb, the total absence of noise seems wrong. Your brain clicks into alert mode trying to figure out the conflicting signals: motion is supposed to be noisy.
"As you maneuver around the parking lot, your brain is confronted by another paradox. The car feels solid and purposeful — befitting its substantial size and weight — but also deft and effortless. The smooth and linear responses to your inputs instills a sense of confidence and wonder.
"Take it out into the open road and punch the accelerator. You rush forward with an immediacy and urgency that you didn't know was possible. Your right foot seems connected directly to the small of your back. Press hard and your back instantly knows what your ears disbelieve. The dashboard digits blur while the g-forces command your lips into a grin. No sound, no fury, no smoke, no drama. Just bewildering acceleration — so this is what it feels like to be the pellet in the slingshot...
"Find a winding road and you can reinterpret the laws of physics. With its weight mostly below your feet, it hugs the road like a race car. No leaning, no slipping, no squealing. Just a connection to the road like the slots cars of your youth.
"Ease back and settle in for the daily commute. The interior is clean and calm. The large screen is prominent but not distracting. Its UI is smart and beautiful — finally a car computer that complements rather than detracts.
"And then it hits you: this is an incredible car… one of the finest in the world. It doesn't need its own category, it doesn't need to be graded on a curve. It beats a century of internal combustion engine technology on its first at-bat.
"This is the future of my youth. This is the future that I want. No more toxic fuels and poisonous emissions. No more underwriting sheiks and fighting wars. It is said that you have two important votes in life: one at the polling place and one at the cash register. I made my vote. I am an official sponsor of the future."

Your comment was censored. What did you write?

No, my first attempt misplaced it at the tail of the comments instead of nesting it as a "Reply" to GuitarSlinger, so I deleted it myself and repasted it in the proper place. ;)

@Brian H: "?? 2 comments, 1 neg, the other a rebuttal."

When I wrote that, there were only two comments, both negative IMO.

@Brian H

but i see your point about the second being a rebuttal. I misread.
