I think it was preparation for an April 1 joke, but hit the wrong button prematurely.

So you're saying it was what... Premature E-joke-ulation?

Regards to immortality, a lot of articles I have read seem to indicate a current consensus among many scientists that currently the maximum potential lifespan for humans is approx 120 years. If the process of degradation during cell division can be addressed in a significant manner, maybe longer.
As a reasonable goal, we as a species might hopefully move closer toward the maximum potential, for starters.

Covid19 is a pretty huge setback to what humans have managed to accomplish over the past decades in keeping old people healthy.

Altered Carbon is a pretty cool TV show, though I haven't started S2 yet.

And personally I find nothing wrong with Joel Kinnamon (S1 main actor)

"Japanese publication Best Car Web"

They are all just parroting Best Car. Although some do add their own "facts".

It is hilarious to follow!


OH COOL According to the graphics from Carguide I have a 2021. Best go look at my engine I guess.

There is nothing really wrong with him, he's just not that likable. S2 you'll notice the actor gap.

Then you might even be tempted to watch the animated movie, which is cool.

If the motor.com or motoring1.com renderings are anything like what the next-generation car is going to look like, I am so happy that I decided to buy a 2019 and not wait.

Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, but to my old-school eyes, those renderings are just vomit-inducing ugly.

The Motor1 is something their 16 year old graphics guy pulled out of his ass and has zero basis in reality.

The Motoring one is a GR hybrid concept car from back in 2016 and has nothing to do with any proposed production model.

The clickbaits have no real info to report on so they are just throwing up crap for clicks. It obviously works.
