Re: MCU

I think a 50/50 when all the monetary investment is on Sony's part is a little extreme. Exactly how so? Does Disney deserve 50% of "Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse" and "Venom" revenue? Of course not, those movies aren't even part of the MCU. Sony owns the movie rights to Spider...

Its only pump-and-dump short bulls*** if its about Tesla. But you're allowed to talk badly about any other company (even if that company is making EVs).

Re: To Lease or too buy an EV

Feel free to go back and pick up on non-Tesla stories I posted on your own time if you like, they're not going anywhere. Lets see how long your "general EV" posting behavior gets before you start preaching about Tesla's "exponential growth" again. If you keep reading (and postin...
