    I bet that insurance companies would tell you a car fire that damages a home or garage is more common than you think. It's a serious concern of mine and I am very cautious about it.

    Teething problems with new technology. If I remember right - and may not - weren't early TV sets made with all sorts of natural resins and didn't a few of them in the UK actually start fires and maybe injure people?

    Tesla Model S Plaid is now the world's fastest production vehicle: Car sets record breaking EIGHT SECOND quarter mile run at Maryland International Raceway

    Tesla’s Model S Plaid is the first production car to complete a quarter mile in under nine seconds. The vehicle, driven by American race car driver Christine Dodworth, reached 125.10 miles per hour during the trip, finishing the run at the Maryland International Raceway in 8.944 seconds.

    The Model S was a stock, meaning it came directly from the factory without any modifications, and only had the passenger seat removed to reduce weight. The record also places the Tesla as the second-fastest all-electric vehicle in the world, following the $2 million 2021 Rimac Nevera, which used four electric motors to run an 8.6- and 8.7-quarter mile earlier this year.

    Back during the Great Depression, my granddad got an enviable job as the local school custodian because he was a licensed boiler operator. This was way up north, and the school had steam heat. Boiler explosions were not unheard of, and the license had been required for some time by then. The job came with a house next to the school. Grandpa tied one end of a rope to the porch railing, and the other end to a railing at the school so he wouldn't get lost in a blizzard in the middle of the night, since he had to make frequent trips to check the boiler. This was about 80 years ago.

    The new CEO of Twitter said:

    "Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation," Agrawal said in 2020 during an interview with Technology Review’s Editor-in-Chief Gideon Lichfield. "The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed."
