Graceful Failure–or how to not crash your Tesla into a UFO! Plus a rant about taxes & non-US unions



One of the biggest takeaways from people starting to drive Tesla’s beta 10 release is that the car is failing gracefully, so to speak: in other words, it is able to recover from navigation mistakes, bad traffic issues, and various other problems, all without crashing and having the human driver take over. If we’re ever going to get to the fabled L5 autonomy and robs-taxis, Teslas (or other FSD cars) have to be able to recover from failure gracefully.

Plus a bonus rant about the recent US infrastructure bill that provides $4,500 of tax incentives for EV cars built by unions–but not necessarily in the US itself. If you think it’s crazy that we citizens might have to pay out of our own taxes for cars built in other countries, then have a listen. If not, feel free to skip this section, which is at the end. Fair warning 🙂

TSLA VS UFO, Report to Congress



https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCf2wL7Fee1hnK71ZJ2U3ICA MyStock Market Channel
Sometime in June a report will be given to Congress from The Office of Naval Intelligence and The UAP Task Force and The FBI about what is known officially about UFO or UAP activity in the United States and planet Earth. News of any kind will have an effect on the stock market. In this video I mention all my stocks and whether they are up or down. At 4:55 I speculate about how Tesla, symbol TSLA, will likely be positively moved upward by the news. Space travel and Tesla are related whether they should be or not. Also at 6:55 i mention how I think the report to congress could be good or bad for the market in the future. It is my intention to buy some UFO stock tomorrow. UFO is an ETF fund that just might be feeling the effects of the report depending on whether the report is a few minutes, a few hours or a few days or longer. I am not a financial advisor and I merely am reporting what I will be doing. Any money invested in the stock market can be lost.
