    Cancer Thread: Stories and Support

    I’m a pretty private person - I am way happier asking other people about their lives than I am talking about myself. Over the years I have met so many people whose lives and families have been changed by cancer. I always did my best to offer help and words of encouragement but you really never...

    ⚡️Watch Ken Block Smoke Las Vegas in His Custom Audi S1 “Hoonitron” EV⚡️

    I always enjoy the Gymkhana videos. This is the first ever run in an EV. The scenery is not as interesting as other videos, but it’s not Ken Block’s fault Las Vegas is a commercialized concrete jungle. At one point he’s doing donuts in front of A Tony Roma’s Steak & Lobster🤣 Still fun to watch...

    Ars Technica Review of VW ID Buzz (Euro Spec)

    The US doesn’t get the ID Buzz until 2024 and our version will be slightly longer, with a 3rd row option. The review is very preliminary, but I thought some here might be interested. If you look at the accompanying photos you will see what looks like a “camp kitchen” accessory that isn’t...

    Elon Musk Is High On His Own Supply (Humanoid "robots" will be available in 10 years!)

    Supply of what you ask? There are probably multiple answers to that question, but in this case I'd say he's high on his own supply of constant, never-ending bull$hit. In the article below that Musk himself apparently wrote for the official Chinese government "cyberspace" publication (an entirely...

    Thread for the grizzled. Who had NOT changed their configuration yet?

    I fall into the grizzled category. I was very annoyed with Rivian for their decision the other day. I was just waiting before I either downgraded or cancelled my order like so many others. I thought Rivian might offer *something* after the backlash but did not expect them to go as far as they...

    Deep breaths and bright siding. What can you live with/ without?

    I completely understand the anger at Rivian today. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a company vaporize so much goodwill with a single email. There is a good chance they priced me out with the sheer amount of the price hike, but before I cancel I’m going to play around with the configurator...
