Copypasta from a musk hater. Lame.

You people are no different that the creeps that worship the guy.

What problem is this underground tunnel idea supposed to solve?”

Joke comment or have you never heard of urban traffic?

Yeah, they said that when he bought a rocket company too.

A 200x reduction in LEO costs later, and here you are, still betting against him.

Do any of the Jalopnik staff live in Los Angeles?

It’s a great idea. Sure it’s a simple concept; but the goal has been, since the beginning, to lower the cost and increase the speed of building tunnels.

I think you’re right.  The first accord pic someone else posted that you included is definitely correct; but only for the grill.  A-pillar back is a completely different shape.

That’s what I’m thinking.  Or a Daewoo version they sold later.  Or some other company bought the tooling.

I guess I’ll keep my Galaxy S8 for another year. I miss iOS but seriously; Apple’s hardware is just horrid. I don’t care if it is top-spec under the hood. I read text messages on my phone and scroll Jalopnik. I don’t need powerhouse specs, but I would like to have a phone that doesn’t feel 10 years old the day I buy Read more

Where did you get that physics-defying idea? It’s literally the same as torque vectoring. Robots use this for steering all the time. A segway is a perfect example of it.

The independent nature of each wheel means there is no difference between 1, 2, 3, or 4 points of contact.

If each wheel has an independent motor, they don't really need quad steer; as it could tank steer.

Individuals pressing buttons without turn-based interaction requires reaction times; inherent to athleticism.

Chess has no such mechanic.
