Not All Experience’s Are Good
I’m confused by an ecosystem in which you need to meet archiac standards for a passport, which is a vital piece of identification (for example, it is a big help to getting a car which massively improves standard of life) whilst any rich dickhead can get their hands on and use these advanced weapons with relative ease.
I was in a shopping mall recently and so used the rare occasion to wander into the Tesla store – mall’s being where Tesla keep their Auto Stores – rather than the perfectly acceptable equivalent in ‘Auto Row’ where all other car dealers operate.
Anyway – that is another rant. This is referencing the fact that the three core Tesla models were on show – and – a rough guesstimate that some 30 to 35 ‘people’ were in there. The volume of sound was – to borrow a phrase – all the way up yo 11.
People in ‘commas’ because around 15 of those ‘people’ were kids – but not nice kids – loud, excited, sugar fueled, obnoxious kids that thought that they were in a playground. And the cars were the equivalent of swings, roundabouts, jungle jims and slides.
It was impossible to look at a car up close and personal – let alone actually sit in one. All three cars driver seats were occupied by a child in the sub 9 year old category.
No single adult seemed to be in charge of said sugar farms. Nobody seemed interested in helping someone without kids that might be interested in learning more.
I think that this buying process is a filter that ensures that only self involved, loud, narcissistic, moronic people manage to get through the hoops and and actually buy said battery on wheels. No paper ID needed – oh no – you are filtered by character right at the beginning of the sales funnel. (1)
(1) … normally I don’t use the term funnel in describing a buying process. I find it a bad, mechanical, non human term that drives the thinking of a corporation to treat their market places as mindless automons that need to be processes – not as people – but in this case – funnel is absolutely the correct term.
