Bay Area’s Whole Mars Catalog is requesting a child from the internet to run in front of their Full Self-Driving car to prove that it will stop and definitely not kill them
Everyone knows that the internet is flooded with bizarre and sometimes downright sickening behavior.
Earlier this week, I may have found the weirdest example, involving a website called the Whole Mars Catalog and their feud with a bunch of Telsa, Elon Musk haters that call themselves TSLAQ.
Here’s the tweet in question. The Whole Mars Catalog is on the search for someone to volunteer their child to run in front of the Full Self-Driving Beta in his car “to make a point”.
Don’t worry, the account promises to not run them over and will disengage if needed.
Whole Mars Catalog
The point that the account is trying to prove is that the Full Self-Driving Beta is completely safe and that a group of people that go by “TSLAQ” are total liars.
What is TSLAQ? Well, here’s where I am now confused on what side I should be on. I really don’t know how people have so much time on their hands to even get involved in shit like this but let’s take a look at who we’re dealing with on both sides.
Choose Your Fighter:
The blog with 132K Twitter followers, possibly Tesla/Elon Musk stans randomly asking for child volunteers to run in front of his Full Self-Driving car to make a point.
TSLAQ, who apparently is a “loose, international collective of largely anonymous short-sellers, skeptics, and researchers who dedicate their lives to openly criticize Tesla and Elon Musk. (also known as, nerds)
Think about what side you want to be on while we continue to unpack what’s happening here. Let’s move on to the initial request for a child to run in front of a car.
If you are a parent on social media and volunteer your child to intentionally run in front of a strangers car, then I’m sorry, you need to be thrown in jail. The person tweeting this is “pretty sure” the car will stop itself and everything will be fine?
I definitely have faith that no parent would even consider doing this. The great people of this country wouldn’t openly put their kids in danger to prove a point against a TSLAQ extremist group.
Fuck. Some dad is on board and just has to convince his wife? I’m not married but I’ve had previous relationships where convincing my girlfriend that going golfing on a Saturday or spending 12+ hours tailgating and attending an Eagles game on Sunday were smart ideas.
This guy now has to go explain to his wife that he volunteered their child to run in front of a moving car? I would love to see a video of that conversation followed by the conversation this father needs to have with his child, telling them they have to just run in front of this car. That’s the content we really need, and then we can throw everyone involved in jail.
New Internet Rule: Anytime you have to say “a lot of stupid people think I’m going to murder someone” on Twitter to clarify a test in which you’re requesting a child to run in front of a vehicle to prove a point to a bunch of Tesla deniers, then there’s a VERY strong chance that you are actually the stupid one and not the people who are questioning your motives.
They continue to explain who they tested with this before. College kids walking and crawling makes perfect sense. You can basically get a college kid to do anything you want for a few dollars. Me and the boys would sell plasma and make $70 down in Morgantown, WV and then quickly get to a bar and drink as much alcohol as possible.
Pro Tip: Sell plasma, make money, get drunk faster.
They lose me with the chicken suit but it definitely sounds funny. I assume that test was done in regards to animals crossing in front of the vehicle but honestly, maybe these sick freaks just wanted to see someone in a chicken suit? Who knows really but I don’t think it would be fair to take any and all possibilities off the table.
Regardless, the Whole Mars Catalog account cannot be convinced otherwise. If you even question what they are doing, they are going to block you because “you’re an idiot and this isn’t dangerous”.
Okay so it does look like we’re going to get a video of this which is fantastic news. We’ll know exactly who these morons are and what parents decided to sacrifice their child.
This is now a developing story. We’ll keep you posted.
