So, the baby just went on Autopilot it seems?
 
2021-12-07 7:18:30 PM  
The mom has range anxiety and passed it to the baby.  It's a thing.

We talk about minimizing the amount of screen time kids receive.

This kid didn't stand a chance.

It's on fire. The baby too, probably.

Mommy.  Why'd you name me Telsa?
Well, dear.  You came as a shock.  I mean, your brother, Ford Turbo Diesel Cummings flew right out.

Peggy Hill : We need to break Luanne out of here and get her to a hospital.
Hank Hill : I don't know, Peggy. What if she gives birth in my truck? There's a limit to what Armor-All can do.
 
2021-12-07 7:34:30 PM  
Yeah, it probably no longer qualifies as a "fancy" Tesla.

This is the tradeoff.
You have your luxury car and your healthcare is still so farking bad you're birthing a farking kid in the backseat.
You could have a Toyota and no apprehension about maybe going to a hospital a few hours too early, but no. Our public goods have to turn a profit.

Wait....if she was in a POS Prius or a beat up '06 Explorer she WOULDN'T have gotten stuck in Manhattan traffic?

I really do not understand the point you are trying to make here

I think it's a statement on the superficiality of American consumerism. Instead of saving some money and being in a position to go to the hospital early and not be too concerned about the costs, this family bought a Tesla to keep up with the Joneses and as a result waited until the last minute to go to the hospital.

Although, realistically, a Nissan Leaf would probably be a better choice, since the monthly cost to lease one is a few dozen bucks. It's much cheaper than a Prius, at least when I was pricing them. Leaf versus Tesla is an apples to apples comparison.

But this time of year, we are all inundated with consumerism, and we forget the real meaning of the season: axial tilt.

If you're having a baby it would not matter if she showed up a few hours early, they're charging her the same.  There's no hourly rate in hospitals - they just make you pay an insane amount per day - but not by the hour.  Plus, if they can afford that model Tesla in NYC, I'm going to assume they have a decent health plan.

Where does it say they lived in a 4 story walk up but sprung for a Tesla X?

//oh, and baby's come when they come - unless you're doing a C-section, it's not like you're making a res for two (soon to be three) at a restaurant

Some bigger cities have businesses that specialize in crime scene cleanup.  I have witnessed cars that had more than one gunshot killing done inside that cleaned up nicely......and didn't stink in any noticeable way after sitting in hot sunlight.  A good crime scene cleanup crew can do wonders for a car you might be tempted to just set on fire.

The hospital will turn you away if you're not dilated enough to be admitted. There's a reason you have to wait.

I get what dud was going for, but it doesn't make sense. They'd get just as stuck in traffic in a LEAF.

We have a friend in Chicago who gave birth in her minivan. Her husband took it to a car detail company to get it cleaned and the company refused to touch it because they were concerned it was a crime scene.

Names to name the Baby:

a) Taxi
b) Cab
c) Tesla

Makes me wonder about Cab Calloway.
 
2021-12-07 9:00:09 PM  
Cab Calloway was not named for his birth place. Cab is short forr Cabell. Of course, I could be wrong if Cabell Calloway was born on the Cabell plantation.
