They aren't being claimed with any group, so it's almost not worth paying attention to the crazy rants of anonymous people, but thought people would enjoy the insane claims in these flyers:http://finance.yahoo.com/news/people-san-francisco-leaving-insane-211251...
Are you sure this is not something you found on The Onion? :)
Being discussed at TMC also. It is so off base it is actually funny. A comment was made that the author must be mad that the batteries were taking all his lithium supply and he is upset.
"Tesla seat vibration causes Anal Itching!" may well be the funniest thing I have read this year.
I'm fairly sure that the white powder coming out of Afghanistan is not Lithium Carbonate.
I would respond in more detail but I'm scratching my butt.
Mine came with suppositories!
As mgboyes mentioned above,
The "Tesla seat vibration causes Anal itching", now that is funny! I got a good laugh out of that one.
I want to see the studies about the "increased drug, sex, and risk inclinations." I'm a quaker, and I don't want the car if I won't fit in. jk :)
definitely agree with the strange sexual behavior.
Lithium ion batteries blow up when bumped! That explains all those maimed iPhone users who dropped their phone only to have it disintegrate and cause shrapnel wounds to people nearby! No wonder Apple stock is taking a beating! Must be true too, look how the market responded to Tesla stock over the past year or two. I am so glad I sold my stock at $9.23 while there were suckers to buy it!
And to think that Google was in on it all along! Thank God we have Obamacare to take care of the afflicted (especially those with extreme anal itch and sexual deviancy!) at no cost to the afflicted ones.
What is it with San Francisco? First the Google Bus terrorism, now this? Sheesh...
This is so patently absurd. It does sound like things forwarded to me by one of my friends and one of my family members but I will decline to identify names or political affiliations.
Anal itching is just icing on the cake (if you don't try to think about actual analogies).
Wow. It really makes one wonder... How did these deluded crackpots manage to pay attention long enough to learn how to write?
Damn, my LandShark was parked in SF today, why didn't I get one of these?????
"Strange sexual behavior", eh? Were any of you guys part of those studies?
Hmm...maybe a stealth startup hydrogen car company in SF with some funding that is trying to battle Tesla?
That...or just plain wackos.
Would be very interesting to find out who is behind this! My money is on an intelligent individual with a psychiatric diagnosis rather than some less harmless conspiracy, but you never know.
I guarantee the author is a teabagger. Once something is called out by Fox and Romney, et al, reality no longer matters. Tesla was lumped in with Fisker and Solyndra early on and I'm certain this person drank that particular cup of koolaid.
After reading this I realized something.....I am a terrible person.
Not completely, though. No homocides cause that's just crazy.
Attention Red Sector Alpha: They're onto us. Abort mission.
"Tesla seat vibration causes Anal Itching!"
"Strange sexual behavior"
Wait a minute, didn't @Bamboo8 post his excellent adventure last year eluding to the above items? Hmm, let's cross reference for the writing style...
Agree with Tomas. Some sort of psychosis with obsessional tendencies. This is the type of thing that sounds funny until he tries to shoot Elon Musk or some innocent car owner. When the police break into his house, the walls will be papered with newspaper cuttings with red xs over his victims.
Looks like the work of Trolls and Orcs.
And no surprise that kind of Tesla bashing is intensified when Tesla quarterly earnings release is getting closer. However, time and time again, this kind of bashing on Tesla would fail miserably.
This is mental illness, plain and simple.
ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!
Yeah. Definitely a crackpot. I am impressed that they managed to fit all the slurs against Tesla Motors on a single sheet of paper. Nice economy there. Also, after giving a lengthy list of crackpot websites to support these concepts, they managed to squeeze in The Los Angeles Times website too. Figures.
@Red Sage I am impressed that they managed to fit all the slurs against Tesla Motors on a single sheet of paper.
I think I know who this is. When I was in high school geometry our teacher gave us a new required theorem to learn every week. We had to write out all the previous ones and then add the new one every week for homework.
One guy did it on a single piece of notebook paper. All 17 required theorems, with diagrams on a single sheet, front and back.
I've heard he's a landscape engineer in San Francisco.
Reminds me of fRox News! LOL!
It looks like NNT has found a new pastime...
A recently fired disgruntled employee? If we catch him, his punishment should be a cross country round trip in a MS. Just think how boring our country would be without San Francisco--I love that place.
There's stuff that will fix "painful rectal itch", not to mention "the heartbreak of Psoriasis" & "ring around the collar" if you get that, too. Because technology.
At least the Tesla has no fluoride - no threat to our Purity Of Essence
So... after reading this, was the guy caught on video dancing naked out his sunroof doing it because he has a "strange sexual behavior" or because he had "anal itch"?
I have a feeling that whoever wrote that piece has really bad B.O. Just a hunch...
What would be considered strange sexual behavior in San Francisco, I wonder?
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
@dramingly, thanks for elaborating. I had similar thoughts but I was not sure if it would be appropriate to start speculating about the diagnostic details here even though it is very tempting given such rich material. I hope he/she will not hurt anyone should the fragile defences break down, eventually.
Talking about speculation: could there be a connection to the recent video of a man directing traffic while standing naked in a Model S?
I was thinking the same thing but instead of NNT I was sure TrekkieNot/Gadfly was running around in his Tesla with a stack of these to mess with the "fan boys" lol.
I just noticed that they listed one of the websites twice.
@ HenryT2: I guarantee the author is a teabagger.
Not necessarily. Both left-wing and right-wing extremist dog-whistle phrases and concepts may be found in that screed. Remember, there are quite a few hard-left environmentalists who dislike the Model S for its high price, its weight and bulk, its perceived elitism, and its inelegant "think big" engineering solution to electric car design. Maybe as many of them as right-wingers who dislike it for its PC environmentalism and the Tesla Co's refusal to play ball with the dealers or with Short-time Wall Street players. Maybe not. And SF is one of the few US cities where there are enough left-side wingnuts for something like that to find a bit of traction.
Teabagger is also a slang for c@cksucker, literally...
Not literally, Mathew, but anatomically quite close.
'Tea Bagger'... 'Pipe Smoker'... Such horrid names. Not at all nice. I prefer to use 'crackpot', but I admit that 'wingnut' works just fine. ;-)
Baribrotzer: Agreed. This seems to just pile in naysayers' statements from all points of view. People who are looking for a reason to hate Tesla Motors have no problem accepting any no matter the source. 'The Enemy of My Enemy is Someone I Trust More Than My Enemy' and all that rot. It doesn't matter to a crackpot that another crackpot agrees with them. They are just happy to have allies, no matter how illogical or unsubstantiated the grounds. Haters gotta hate.
My personal favorite "Google, the world's largest surveillance is a silent partner in Tesla"
Cool. Next time my car is stolen, they could use their "largest surveillance" network to track it down ;)
Must've focused on Mathew98's posts.
Wait a minute... my seat doesn't vibrate. Tesla took that option away without telling us!
Yes, Brian, my pimp name is Long Dong Johnson. ;P
Constipated? Nothing a quick drive in a Tesla won't solve. Like working a ball bearing through irrigation tubing, the key is vibration.
