Godwin’s Law

July 5, 2009

From the Wikipedia:

Godwin’s Law (also known as Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1] is a humorous observation coined by Mike Godwin in 1990, and which has become an Internet adage. It states: “As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”[2][3]

So basically, if you are in an argument, given enough time someone will make a comparison to either Hitler or Nazis. One of these days I should time it. 🙂

Tesla Motors: Looking Impressive

July 5, 2009

While America’s gas car industry is falling apart, there are some “green” start ups with some impressive potential. One in particular is Tesla Motors. Look at their new video for their electric car that will go up to 300 miles between recharging, one model that will go 0-60 in less than 5 seconds, have more storage space than other sedans and controls as slick as an iPhone:

For ~$50,000 starting in 2012, Tesla is showing that great new car designs can be both green and come out of the United States. Can you say new exports anyone?
