    Default Gigafactory

    I’ve gotta find a way to get on at the Gigafactory. How cool would that be?

    And it’s only about 30 minutes from my place.

    Wish I had some factory skills…..gotta start somewhere….

    Is that the thing where the employees have to pee in bottles? Or am I thinking of something else.

    He just wants to smuggle batteries (and solar cells?) out the back door, One Piece at a Time.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    I got myself a factory job I ran an old machine

    We bought a little cottage in a neighborhood serene

    And every night when I got home with every muscle sore

    She would drag me through the streets of Baltimore

    The battery would be more attractive than that.

    It must be some weird Musk joke like the naming of space devices. I do not see how anyone could think that looks marketable except for an 80’s Arnold Schwarzzeneger movie.

    Looks like a DeLorean on bad acid.

    I wouldn’t get too hung up on aesthetics. I think electric cars are going to be skateboard frames with bolt-on, plug in tops.
