When I was a little kid, I was really scared of the dark. But then, I sort of came to understand, ‘Ok, well dark just means the absence of photons in the visible wavelength.’ Then I thought, ‘Well that’s really silly to be afraid of a lack of photons.’ I wasn’t afraid of the dark anymore after that.

Reveal: The New Tesla Roadster

At a Tesla press conference to reveal their new semi-truck, Elon Musk, unveiled a unexpected new vehicle - a roadster that he said would be the “fastest production car ever” made.

While the details are a bit slim, here are the stats we know: 

  • 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds 
  • 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds 
  • It will cover the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds
  • 200 kilowatt hour battery pack
  • 620 mile range on a single charge
  • The top speed “above 250 mph”

The base price of the new roadster is currently set at $200,000 and is scheduled to begin production in 2020. They are currently accepting orders with a $50,000 deposit required upfront. The first 1,000 models sold will be the Founder’s Series models which will cost you $250,000 upfront.

Theorem: We are more likely to live in a simulation than not.

Proof:

Once inevitably capable, each real world will create one or more simulated worlds.

Thus there would be more simulated worlds than real worlds.

So probabilistically, we are more likely to be living in a simulated world than a real world.

End of proof. xD
