  • well, that's probably it for me today...

    a. read a little more of Tofflers' "Revolutionary Wealth!"

    b. find another "Korean mini-series..." to watch on DramaFever, or Hulu, or Netflix, or Vicki (man them "Korean babes is "hot" (and I know...I lived there for over a year, etc.)

    c. got my "5th laptop" ...FedEx just dropped it while I was out havin' a smoke in the gazebo... that's an xmas gift for someone... kinda late... so I had it Amazoned here... gonna "supe it up" (it's an HP with Win8.1...like that, bought one of these for myself a couple months ago...liked it SO MUCH...decided I send one to my brother's kids in San Antonio...but this way if he got problem in future... I can figure out on mine...got all that remote control anyway (Teamviewer is best and free)...anyway I'll set up "dual-boot" LINUX MINT 17...on it... and if he has problems with Windows... he can just use LINUX for a bit... until I deal with "whatever issue" etc...

    anyway...

    have a HAPPY... too early for New Year's yet... whatever...

    you couldn't ...BECAUSE...

    IT'S "TOO FAR ABOVE YOUR HEAD..."

    so, don't waste your time...

    hey, maybe "if you disguise yourself" you can "trick TESLA into letting YOU ...do a TEST DRIVE...

    that's the "real solution for you" ...kind of like "AA" treatment... you go "cold turkey" on critisizing TESLA... and maybe they might just "let you TAKE ONE FOR A SPIN"... AND THEN... you'll be too busy travelin' from "one Supercharger station to another (to get YOUR FREE ELECTRICITY SUPERCHARGE)...hey THEY WON'T EVEN MIND IF YOU "YOU SLEEP IN IT..." (I know you "would like it that much"...)

    hey... you could probably become an "on the TESLA road" celebrity, and all that... even have "paparazzi and fan clubs"...

    now, that I think of it Keef... somethin' GOOD can come out of all this of YOUR BEING THE "NUMBER ONE TESLA CRITIC"...

    think of it Keef... all those "groupies" ...appearances on FAUX NEWS... maybe their could even be a "movie deal" in it for you...

    maybe I should have become a "Tesla critic" instead of one of it's biggest supporters...ohl well... I don't have a "hankerin' for attention, like you do"...

    think, about it Keef... whoa... "you could be goin' places" instead of just "writin' crap here..." ...I mean what does "guzzler pay you for this"....15 cents "a post"...you could be "goin' BIG-TIME" if you "GET ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THINGS, etc!"

    oh... if you decide to do this... do us "one more BIG FAVOR"...make your "first cross-country" trip... A VISIT ...to that "balls-coach" guy... and the TWO OF YOU COULD DO A KIND OF "NEW ROUTE-66" tv show... like with a TESLA ...instead of an "old gasoline-guzzling vette"...

    oh the possibilities for "you and the coach..." Keef

    you're on "Tesla's BLACKLIST"...

    meaning "under no circumstance" will YOU BE ALLOWED "ANYWHERE NEAR" an ACTUAL TESLA...

    let alone "buy OR LEASE ONE"...

    rumor is: You "won't even BE ABLE TO "RENT ONE"...even the "car rental companies" ...GOT YOUR "POSTER" displayed prominently on the "office wall"... and ALL EMPLOYEES get special training about
    you or that HANDS-ON TRAINING BY THAT "coach-someone's balls" guy, etc.

    so since "you probably gonna be wantin' a TESLA in the future - no matter how much you "kick...rant...scream" about it now...WELL...I wouldn't want to be on "Elon's SHORT-list...

  • flashrob flashrob Dec 26, 2014 1:19 PM Flag

    thanks "for the ENDORSEMENT" Keef...

    comin' from you... THAT WAS AN UNEXPECTED PLEASANT SURPRISE...means LOTS OF PEOPLE "WILL DEFINITELY PAY ATTENTION TO THE "SUBSTANCE" of my posts...

    wait 'til you see the "one about the 2-seater" ...WOW... that didn't even make it here...somebody must be passin' that around among the "Pros" FIRST...ya know so they can get the "jump on everyone in the mass mkt"...

    I don't care... haven't got time to screw with "that issue"...could be "my people, too" ...they edit me if I say something they don't want me putting out in the "mass-public arenas" at this time...(creates problems for them... and I don't want to have them on my back... that's real trouble, if I do that...

    anyway... whatever...

  • I have certain connections that enable me to find stuff out... BIG STUFF...

    so here's a tip for you about "global economics, biz, and all that..."

    though I could be makin' good money daytradin' ...I got more important stuff to do...(I can always make money...and I don't need Tesla to do that... although that would be pretty easy, etc.

    anyway: HERE'S MY TIP...

    I am currently "reading a book that VERY ACCURATELY FORECASTS GLOBAL ECONOMICS!"

    and I am very good at "gettin the best info" ON ANY SUBJECT... (simultaneously working on "quantum physics" and "climate change stuff" to give you an idea... but anyway...

    this BOOK IS "SLAM-DUNK GLOBAL ECONOMICS STUFF" ...a must read if "you WANT TO KNOW THE "PROBABLE GLOBAL ECON FUTURE..."

    TITLE: REVOLUTIONARY WEALTH

    author: Alvin and Heidi Toffler

    available: well I "got the KINDLE edition on Amazon"...like I already knew about this author...decades ago...
    ...his other "great economics forecast book"...that I read... "Future Shock" ...IS ALL COMING TRUE...

    he predicted: offshoring of U.S. mfr jobs back in seventies, eighties...AND TELL'S YOU "WHAT "IS" COMING NEXT...

    read it if you want the answers...THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS I KNOW ...TESLA was gonna be a "big hit" years ago, when they were doing the "Lotus conversion, etc."

    anyway...get the KINDLE edition... and their is a "cliff-notes" type version of "Future Shock" that I also am reading (you have to get the "Bookrags" version to get it on kindle)...

    have the original someplace in storage...haven't been there in over a year...100 miles away... too much work to go thru all them boxes of books to find it...so I just "duplicate anything I need from there, etc."

    cheaper than "wastin' a couple days there...motel expenses...guzzler gas/tolls...all that..."

    somebody volunteered to "empty that place for me" (cost me thousands a year to maintain...climate control...all that"...if they can "have anything I got there... which is quite a bit... etc. so that will do.

  • ...anyway... I see the stock "inchin' up" ...soon as I attempted post... was about the "two seater"... I'll eventually get it out someplace publically...

  • flashrob flashrob Dec 23, 2014 10:05 AM Flag

    what YOU SHOULD BE ASKING...

    a. NORWAY is "oil rich"

    b. they are "exporting LOTS OF THAT OIL...

    c. so WHY THEN IS "GASOLINE" ....$10. dollars a gallon there...THE NORWEGIANS "ARE FED-UP" with BIG OIL... and crony politicians... WELL SOMEONE IS MAKING BIG BUCKS OFF ALL THAT OIL THEY ARE PUMPING...
    ...AND THE "TYPICAL NORWEGIAN CONSUMER" ...IS "FED-UP" with this "gov/big-oil" cronyism...

    SO THEY ARE "BUYING TESLAS AND LEAFS" (BOTH OF WHICH ARE "PURE EV" and not some "phony token hybrid offering of big-guzzler...)

    a. TESLA for the more "well-heeled" ...and THERE ARE PLENTY OF THEM...

    b. and Nissan Leaf... for the "lower-end" mass-mkt consumer...

    c. so basically "pure" ELEC VEHICLES ...are the rage in Norway... AND WILL CONTINUE TO "EAT" more 'n more OF BIG-GUZZLER/BIG-OIL'S PIE...

    d. and eventually THIS SENTIMENT (FAVORING "pure" EVs) is gonna SPREAD "ALL OVER EUROPE..."
    (THEY ALSO ARE A "BIT MORE FOCUSED IN EUROPE" ON "BREATHING CLEAN AIR..." AND HELPING KEEP PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT !!!

  • just google this:

    2014/12/23/news/companies/tesla-car-norway

  • latest ROUTINE GUZZLER RECALL news... BMW this time...

    just google this:

    BMW to replace airbags nationwide, joining other automakers

    ...............
    hey I got an IDEA... how about someone coming OUT WITH: "BIG-GUZZLER ... RECALL INSURANCE" ...

    like guzzler can EVEN MAKE THAT about a $500. OPTION on the "sticker price..."

    ...only problem "big guzzler" probably have to be the INSURER TOO... like "what insurance company" WOULD THINK "RECALL INSURANCE" would be a profitable product... 'specially with "guzzler's track record on RECALLS...

  • wish Y would keep up with the numbers... I can get them off "naz directly" if needed...

  • THIS IS "INCREASINGLY GOOD NEWS FOR TESLA"... (more PURE EV entrants to the global mkts...)

    a. the USUAL HYPE ...by guzzler...that TESLA IS GONNA have "new competitors"...WHAT A "CROC!"

    b. in REALITY... ramping up ADDITIONAL PURE EV CARS... just STRENGTHENS TESLA'S "eating MORE of "big guzzlers pie..."

    c. ALMOST ALL of these "LOWER PRICED OFFERINGS "MORE LIKE KANDI" ...WHICH "DON'T HURT TESLA"...BUT THEY DO "HURT BIG GUZZLERS LOWER-END "MASS MKT ICE VEHICLES" ...so "more and more" PRODUCTION of these "lower-end pure EV's"...

    it's AS SIMPLE AS... "the INTRODUCTION of classic ICE honda civics DON'T IMPACT "CARS AT THE LEVEL OF A PORSCHE...

    a. lots of people BUY CIVICS ...and who does THAT IMPACT... It impacts the "lower-end offerings" OF ALL THE REST OF THE "MASS COMPETING GUZZLER MFRS" ...WORLDWIDE...

    b. the "guy who buys a PORSCHE" is STILL GONNA BUY A PORSCHE (well to be completely honest... lots of "PORSCHE BUYER TYPES" WILL "NOW BE BUYING A "TESLA D"... INSTEAD...

    ...so TESLA IS ACTUALLY "EATING THE PIE" OF THE "BIG-GUZZLER LUXURY/PERFORMANCE MKT NICHE"

    c. all this IS "SO TRANSPARENT" ...BIG-GUZZLER is gonna get a "butt-kickin" INCREASINGLY "IN ALL MKTS" ...BOTH "HIGH END LIKE PORSCHE" and "LOW END... like KANDI...

    same "old hype spin" by "big-guzzler fans" ...TRYING TO "MISDIRECT AND CONFUSE THE AVERAGE INVESTOR... "but a bit of COMMON SENSE" dispels the "big-guzzler LOSING vested interest HYPE!"

    SO "TESLA SALES IN CHINA"...WILL BE "HUGE"...

  • flashrob flashrob Dec 19, 2014 9:55 AM Flag

    hey "shorts" ...grab your "calculators" ...and "give us YOUR "NUMBER-CRUNCHIN' TAKE" on the impact on Ford's profits... this will cost another "big-guzzler"... you know who "really elated???"

    a. NOT TESLA...

    b. IT BE "GM" ...well FORD got "outfox" GM surprise for that "smirkin' GM" ... like they probably BE WORKIN' ON "NEW COMMERCIALS" already...like:

    "WE THE GUZZLER..."WITH THE LOWEST "RECALLS" ...etc.... (not like that GM with like 29 million RECALLS... (be be try to keep below ONE MILLION...and with all cars we make... you consumer got "SOME odds" ...THAT YOU "NOT BE DUMMY" who get "one of those"...and if you do ...that BE ON YOU...you musta have "bad karma..." (we got mkt team be studying that NEW AGE karma thing...we gettin' SAVVY with that... "because GIVE UP "HUGE NEW LOOPHOLE" goin' forward... like: ANYPROBLEM YOU GOT WITH "YOUR GUZZLER" ...that be "YOUR BAD KARMA" ....and "don't be blamin' GUZZLER, cetera...

    ......
    me, when I get choice on HULU for "select a type commercial" ...LIKE "PICK ONE OUTTA 3"

    I BE PICKIN' "MCDONALDS OR WENDY'S" ... 'stead of GUZZLER BULLSPIN COMMERICAL...

  • google this: (to fine the MAGIC NUMBER!!!"

    Ford expands drivers air bag recall nationwide

    oh... "WOE IS BIG-GUZZLER"...

    and "WHOA... guess what...MORE PEOPLE GONNA BE THINKIN'...this be "gettin' OUT OF HAND and POCKET...

    MAYBE... I BETTER LOOK AT THAT "TESLA"...don't have to waste time on RECALL... problem with Tesla...they go to you...I hear... AND "YOU SAVE BIG TIME ON "POLLUTIN' GASOLINE...TOO"

    YEP..."maybe SHOULD START THINKIN' "TESLA" when time "to put MY OLD-GUZZLER... "OUT TO PASTURE!" ...

  • just google this:

    Mercedes recalls 4,871 cars, SUVs in U.S. for possible oil leak

    (figure give the "shorts" somethin' REAL to spin on...

    Gigantic tax selling in 2015

    flashrob flashrob Dec 17, 2014 12:40 PM Flag

    the one's who are gonna "sell for tax reasons" already did so in NOV... because of the repurchase rule...

    the REST know the "stock is gonna KEEP CLIMBIN" ...so there's NO POINT IN SELLIN'...

  • flashrob flashrob Dec 17, 2014 10:01 AM Flag

    your presumption...

    some DUMBIE "NUMBER CRUNCHER ANALYST" ...IS HAVINGE A "FANTASY" ...AGAIN...

    AND "PROJECTING DUMB FORECAST" of TESLA SALES DECLINE DUE TO "TEMP LOW OIL PRICES"

    ...AND THEN THE "JUST AS DUMB SHORTS" ...RUN WITH THIS "FANTASY SPECULATION" OF SOME

    "VESTED INTEREST NEGATIVE ANALYST" ...as IF IT'S "A FACT"....

    ...........
    a. people DON'T BUY TESLAs ...because of the "price of gas" ...

    b. saving money on gas... is important...BUT NOT MUCH TO THE PEOPLE "WHO BUY TESLAS"...

    c. the SAME GOES FOR PURCHASERS "OF 500 PLUS HP GUZZLERS"
    ...if your buying "that kind of car" ...OBVIOUSLY ...fuel economy IS "NOT A BIG ISSUE TO YOU..."

    SO "WE GET ANOTHER ROUND OF THE "LASTEST LOSER HOKUM from "vested interest" supporters of guzzler...

    ...........
    keep "trying guys"... YOUR DUMB "FORECASTS/ANALYSIS/SPECULATION/..."WISHFUL THINKIN'
    OF THE "LOSING GUZZLER CROWD"...

    well, you KEEP PLENTY OF "DUMB SHORTS" making TESLA LONGS..."RICH!"

    listen to this "piker" on this board... at "your peril..."

    haven't YOU really figured out "that the short dolts" here DON'T RUN THINGS...like look at their advice FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS...

    haven't you figured out "that the seesawing of the mkt"...and how were at 17k ...when global economic factors indicate we should be at "maybe 7k"...

    you just don't GET IT DO YOU?

    well, I'm not going to tell you... you shorts are like the Repub Party... no matter "what they do" or "what kind of majority" ...they have...THEY STILL LOSE... AND LOSE... AND LOSE...

    and WHY IS THAT? ...because they think "they are the POWERS THAT BE"... bad mistake on their part...

  • once FOCUS shifts to RETAIL UNEXPECTED BONANZA...due "temp cheap oil"...THEN DOW/NAZ back UP...and

    the HIGH-FLYERS...will be "biggest gainers"

    ........great BUYING OP because of this ...IN "ALL HIGH FLYERS"...but especially TESLA... and Solar City...

    OH... "GOOD BUYIN' OP" ...AT THESE "SKITTERISH PRICES"...

    BIG OIL... "GETTIN' THE FRACKIN' OF THEIR LIVES!"

    ...BUT GUESS WHO ...GONNA BE "BUYIN' UP BANKRUPT AND WEAK "FRACKERS???"

    .............
    PROBABLY "LIKE "EXXON" ....got that... the BIG OIL COMPANIES... will buy up the "frackers" FOR .10 CENTS ON A DOLLAR...OR SOMESUCH...

    THEN THEY CAN "RAISE THE PRICE OF OIL..............AS USUAL......"

    see HOW this game played...

    ...............
    so enjoy "LITTLE SHORT-LIVED" CHEAP GAS PRESENT... FOR "CHRISTMAS"...

    ..............
    NEXT YEAR... "BACK UP GO OIL BIG-TIME"

    who lose in this.....

    original investors in "frackin'

    ..............
    who WIN BIG.............big AMERICAN OIL (like Exxon)

    because THEY BOUGHT UP "FRACKERS for .10 cents on a DOLLAR...and can NOW sell THE FRACKED OIL...VERY CHEAP...

    BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T have to DO "ALL THE EXPENSIVE INITIAL SETUP...."

    BUT THIS "KIND OF STRATEGY" is probably "too complicated" FOR "MINDS THAT KEEP COMING "UP SHORT!"

  • a. maybe YOU THINK "GUZZLER GOT A WINDFALL WITH CHEAP OIL AND GAS..."

    b. DON'T "COUNT ON IT"...

    it WILL BE "REVENUE TARGET NUMBER ONE OF THE POLS (both Dem and Repub...got empty state coffers THEIR "TROUGH" is startin' to DRY UP..)

    MEANING: YOU GONNA GET "HUGE NEW TAX ON GASOLINE" ...PROBABLY LIKE A "BUCK A GALLON" ..

    this WILL BE ONE THING THE "POLS - both Dem and Pub WILL AGREE ON ...a real "demontration of TRUE BI-PARTISANSHIP...(kind of like when THEY "COST OF LIVING PAYRAISE COMES UP"....just gets "passed" with EASY MAJORITY OF "BOTH DEMS AND REPUBS"...with "few want to make it look good BY VOTING AGAINST...(knowin' ALL THE WHILE ...that it gonna pass "unanimously...

    so CHEAP GAS...not for LONG.... dumb shorts....
