    That was fun, Bill.

    I love those "how it's made" kind of videos. Fascinating.

    Around a smooth 70 Large.

    Sweet vid. Thanks for posting bill. I guess the reason it is in Too Hot is because LD is concerned about the citizenship of the robots. ;)

    The jobs are going to people who design and build the robots. Of course, some robots are built by other robots.

    When the design is done by people overseas, that's the problem.

    The video says there are 3,000 jobs in the plant. Yes, without robots there would be 5-10x that many, but then again, we'd be driving Model Ts.

    There is a joke in manufacturing world that each factory only has two employees, a man and a dog. The man is there to feed the dog, and the dog is there to keep the man away from the machines.

    Well they are certainly not going to get any equal rights protection acting like that.

    2 people I know bought one. They talk about them ALOT.

    "Did you know the Tesla... (insert any and every fact here)"

    Cool cars, though.
