Kevoco I assumed sound was from the camera vehicle (544 comments)

I too noticed it and thought it was odd but rationalized it as being the sound of the vehicle carrying the video camera.

Police Say No Foul Play In Death of Bitcoin Exchange CEO Autumn Radtke

Kevoco Suspicious Death of Shane Todd In Singapore (126 comments)

"The Todd family's suspicions of foul play stemmed from various pieces of circumstantial evidence. For instance, they alleged that police had failed to properly investigate the scene of the crime, that the police neglected to dust for fingerprints, that the suicide notes ostensibly left by Dr Todd were out of character, that the crime scene did not match the description given by authorities, and that a pathologist in the United States found that his body showed evidence of a struggle, rather than a suicide."

Why Nissan Is Talking To Tesla Model S Owners

Kevoco Nissan Dealers Hate the LEAF (335 comments)

My wife is a LEAF owner. In shopping for the LEAF, multiple Nissan dealers were dismissive about the vehicle as a passing fad, a toy, or just dumb. Several dealers didn't even stock one, let a lone a selection. One dealer's demo LEAF was parked behind other cars, under a tree, covered with bird crap.

The LEAF requires much less service (no gas, no oil changes) while presenting a steep technology learning curve, and making the issue worse, by treating the LEAF as an outcast, dealers sell fewer and have even less reason to be enthusiastic.

To understand why the Tesla is so hot while the LEAF is not, Nissan need look no further than their own dealer network. Tesla has not dealers, only showrooms, so none of the internal combustion versus electric hangups as the Nissan dealers.

BTW, we did finally find a Nissan dealer that had a good attitude about the LEAF and we are satisfied customers.

Speed of sound, even in multiples, is nothing compared to the speed of light. Light/energy based defenses just need to be more nimble.
