Holy shitsnacks,  just  :palm:
The only reason they came out with the "badger" pick-up truck model is to ensnare retail investor numpties. Its all CGI.
 I am a "VISIONARY!" Trevor will hire other people to do the menial stuff, and will just collect money.

Even theranos actually went through the motions of building prototypes. sheesh

Listened to part of their stock earnings call on the 4th.
They had lost more than analysts expected and so the stock price was falling.
And yet in the call, management are giving themselves congratulatory pats on the back for doing better than the analysts predicted?!

OFC!

They lost MORE!

More is always better, QED.

They aren't a stunningly healthy company, but there's no reason their trucks can't work. The guy who puts out these videos, Steven Ryan, kinda weirds me out... but it's a fun show to watch!
