How Tesla super fans get the add-ons they can’t get from Elon Musk

How Tesla super fans get the add-ons they can't get from Elon Musk

As soon as Arizona fitness coach Torrey Penn bought his new Tesla Model Y online this September he knew what extras he would need for his new ride — and it didn’t involve an extra $10,000 Full Self-Driving advanced driving package with automatic steering, braking, and turning while on any road.

Instead Penn, 43, left Tesla.com and headed to Amazon and eBay, where he quickly found what he wanted: a Tesla key card ring to open and start his new electric vehicle. He bought it on eBay for $99 as a replacement for an ill-fitting wedding band. The ring arrived last weekend and he immediately programmed it. Now he can put his hand near the front door and the car unlocks and starts, even if he doesn’t have his connected smartphone or key card on him. (Instead of traditional car keys, Teslas have key cards, like a hotel.) Read more…

YouTuber attacked by flying cheese fondue in spectacular viral video

YouTuber attacked by flying cheese fondue in spectacular viral video

YouTuber Tasty Hoon has gone viral with his latest mukbang video, in which his attempt at a cheese fondue went incredibly, hilariously wrong. At least it still seemed to taste good.

In the eight-minute clip uploaded on Wednesday and shared over 42,000 times on Twitter, the South Korean YouTuber prepared to enjoy a delicious-looking meal of fried chicken and cheese. It’s a common food combination, and many YouTubers before him have pulled it off without incident.

Tasty Hoon’s downfall, however, was that he attempted to liven up his video by putting the cheese in a fountain. It sounds like an inspired idea — cheese fondue fountains are absolutely a thing, and it would add an interesting visual element to his mise en scene. Unfortunately his cheese wasn’t quite liquid enough, and the situation quickly got messy. Read more…

‘He’s gone full Hodor’: Seth Meyers roasts Trump for whining about COVID still being a thing

'He's gone full Hodor': Seth Meyers roasts Trump for whining about COVID still being a thing

“Trump is once again trying to warp reality,” said Seth Meyers in Wednesday night’s A Closer Look segment. “Thirty-seven states are seeing spikes in coronavirus cases, which are up 39 percent across the country. We’re seeing new records for daily cases, deaths are up 13 percent, hospitals in hotspots are overwhelmed — like in El Paso, where there’s been a 300 percent increase in hospitalization since the start of October. But the president has been insisting that despite what you can see with your own eyes, everything is fine. And he’s been whining that the media won’t stop talking about the deadly virus killing hundreds of Americans every day.” Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel fact-checks Trump’s ’rounding the corner’ COVID claim in bleak supercut

Jimmy Kimmel fact-checks Trump's 'rounding the corner' COVID claim in bleak supercut

The U.S. set a new daily record for coronavirus cases last week, and is now in a third wave of infections. There have been over 8.5 million confirmed infections in America and over 223,000 deaths, with the death toll expected to more than double by March next year. 

Yet President Donald Trump apparently believes things are looking up, opting to completely ignore the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. 

“Even though the virus is on the rise in almost every state and all over the world, fear not, because the president says we’re ’rounding the corner’,” said Jimmy Kimmel sarcastically on Tuesday night. Read more…
