How a Commuter Thermos May Have Caused a Deadly Accident, Speeding the Vehicle Up and Preventing Braking  

A few years ago, when I was still in NYC, there was a high-speed bus crash that was all over the local news. A charter bus blew through a red light at an absurd 60 miles per hour in a 30 MPH zone. This is the footage: Just in NEW video showing the second the buses collided in @ABC7NY September 18, 2017 "> Three people died, including the driver of the charter bus, one Raymond Mong.

A Ducati speedway motorcycle, imagined by Wreckless

If race bikes are motorcycling in its purest form, speedway machines must be akin to holy water. They have no brakes, just one gear, and drink neat methanol. They’re also rather squashed-looking machines, with stubby hardtails and forks raked steeper than the most extreme sportbike.

SolarCity, which Tesla bought in 2016, began the practice of using the EFCA to promote its products and services without acknowledging it was the only significant member of the organization. EFCA was initially portrayed as a solar advoc...
