Watch: Porsche Taycan Laps Broken Down Tesla Model S At Nurburgring
Elon Musk’s nerves were clearly rattled after the introduction of the Porsche Taycan, as we covered about a week ago. Seemingly shook up by the positive media coverage that the Taycan was getting, Musk quickly took to Twitter to announce that the Model S would be doing laps at the Nurburgring, where the Taycan recently set a record time of 7:42.
The results of this effort to preserve Musk’s ego went just about as ridiculously as you’d think.
Autoblog reported that the Model S had been “stripped of its interior” and had “decidedly non-production aggressive body work, more power, and sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R competition tires.”
Then, to add insult to glorious injury, video surfaced of Tesla’s Model S, broken down on the course.
And for the cherry on top, a fully functioning, non-broken downPorsche Taycan is seen lapping the Model S as it is towed off the course — twice.
And while Tesla’s data maypoint to a modified vehicle that couldbeat the Taycan’s time, it’s worth noting that Porsche didn’t even run its top-end Turbo S at the course, but rather the slightly slower Turbomodel. Porsche also didn’t gut its vehicle before running it.
Maybe we can compare times again between the Turbo S and the Model S — that is, if the Tesla can make it a lap around the track without breaking down or exploding.
Despite westerners being lectured by climate activists like Greta Thunberg, a study has found that around 90 per cent of plastic waste polluting earth’s oceans comes from Asia and Africa.
During her U.S. tour, Thunberg cited “horrifying pictures of plastic in the oceans,” as one of the primary reasons why Americans should listen to her.
However, researchers at Germany’s Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research discovered that a small number of rivers account for the vast majority of plastic pollution and none of them are located in western countries.
“The 10 top-ranked rivers transport 88 – 95 percent of the global load into the sea,”Dr. Christian Schmidt, a hydrogeologist who led the study, told the Daily Mail.
“The rivers with the highest estimated plastic loads are characterized by high population – for instance the Yangtze with over half a billion people.”
Out of the top ten rivers that produce the most pollution, eight are in Asia and two are in Africa. The Yangtze River in China and the Ganges River in India were responsible for the most plastic pollution.
While westerners are being told to alter their lifestyles and have fewer children to save the planet, virtually nothing is being said about or to the people in the countries responsible for the vast majority of pollution.
This is probably one of the main reasons why many in the west remain skeptical about the true motives of the environmentalist movement.
As we reported earlier, only 38 per cent of Americans believe global warming is man made.

Though, it’s easy to say Bitcoin is still complicated for the mainstream user. The global population still uses fiat controlled by governments and central banks and have to risk devaluations in a global currency war that is currently underway. And of course, fiat is still the easiest way for people to pay for goods and services at the moment. Draper said the adoption curve of digital coins in Argentina is evidence that people in countries where currencies have crashed are rotating into digital assets at lightning speed. He said once Bitcoin and other alternative coins become easier to use, that will be the moment when the global population will start the transition; it also might need to take a few more devaluations of major currencies, and or another crash or two of fiat to drive people into digital assets. It’s usually during an economic crisis people will make decessions on how to protect their wealth, or at least what’s left of it.
Adoption rates have rocketed higher in Argentina, Venezuela, and Turkey over the last several years, as their respected currencies have collapsed.
Draper made similar remarks at the Brightline Initiative hosted in Toronto in June. He lauded bitcoin for being “open, transparent, and frictionless.”
He said blockchain is the future and has sparked other game-changing technologies: “For instance, the blockchain allows for a perfect ledger. It keeps perfect track of money. It could also keep perfect track of data.”
He even said bitcoin is “magic technology that allows us to have a trusted, global currency that isn’t tied to any political force.”
Back in February, Draper said Bitcoin would be used to pay for coffee by 2021.
Though, in the short term, Bitcoin is far from $250,000, currently trades in a sideways pattern around the $10k-handle.
I was listening to a interview with one of my favorite pendent on world events Jim Willie, from the hat trick letter. Which can be found at the goldenjackass. When he said something that I have been thinking for a long time. Better told by Jim and in much greater detail.l And with more reasons than I couldn’t ever come up with. It also relates to a story I posted about Jackie Kennedy. This is very important that you have this information…
Just in case you missed it, Remember the story of Jackie Kennedy stating that Johnson killed JFK (A Bush co-Hort) At the time Bush was an agent for the C.I.A. Was Johnson just easier to point at?
And how about the Secret Service Stand down?
Webmaster Note: In the video it is said that the agent said “See you guys I’m going to lunch!” This begs the question be asked, Where was his replacement?
This is going to take more than the attention span of most Americans. And which is the real reason we are in the mess that we are. To busy to pay attention!
