Re: A car in SPAAAACE!

Now you can track the whereabouts of the Tesla and Starman from the comfort of the internet. I like the comment that the car has exceeded it's 36,000 mile warranty over 720.4 times since it was launched.

Hey if we go back far enough we are all from Africa so when exactly do we define the cutoff for "native"? That's all defined in this case by Native American tribe law or the U.S. government...or somewhere in between. Well, the natives were technically and physically here first, so that should be th...
