I am not being facetious- I honestly do not understand this. Why is the alternative to learning English learning to waste time?
Mishnayos Avos.

I don't think others will catch up that quickly, but we'll see. The design, the speed, everything about the car itself makes driving anything else feel like ancient history.

There's no better $30K you can spend on a car right now than a model 3. By a very long shot.
For right now, yes. But, don't forget, the mega car producers have been developing and preparing competitors for about 5 years now. Their development process is a lot more disciplined than Tesla. While that has some cons compared to Tesla's more rapid development pace, there is a big upside to that orderly process. Much better reliability, and less over promising, and what you see is what you get.

They're better then the parks in Lakewood, or just to claim their dues?
Parks in Lakewood don't seem to be maintained. All have boarded up areas, and, in general, are old style. Jackson has some really cool parks.

Hard to say.
The product is light years ahead of everything else. And the service is light years behind.
Light years in this case equals 2 (or even less) years, IMHO.

Guys, could we stop with the nonsensical posts here? This is not a Purim thread. Stop being ridiculous.

Why is this even a discussion? Why would anyone be against Yidden being more knowledgeable in the way Hashem runs the world? That seems to go against many midrashim and other sources. All in the name of frumkeit. I have yet to see an earlier source against it. Nevermind that it is a basic necessity in order to function in society. Don't forget Reb Yehuda's admonishment.

Can people please stop reserving every day at WeWork on King George in Jerusalem?! Some people need it for work and not free beer!
It's not me. I wouldn't drink beer for free either.

He is saying that the Rambam didn't learn like R' Chaim and that a lot of the fancier lomdus found in the raid is very hard to say was the intention of the lashon of the Rishonim that they are derived from.

To 'align' them you need to say one of two things.  1)  The reshonim wrote in multiple layers (analogous to pardes in Torah) and there is an underlying code they embedded which contains the lomdus. 2) They did not intend it but they had a special siyata dishmaya and the code got embedded memaila. 

I have heard from coshuve talmidie chachomim that both explanations are valid.
You left out 3). It's a very nice lomdus, but it's not what the Rambam said.

 Like the famous joke of a lamdan who came to Gan Eden and started talking in learning with the Rambam. Eventually he says, "R' Moshe, you're not learning the right pshat in the Rambam"! :)

I dont really understand this statement. Often the achronim are giving their explanations of the rishonim and base their yesodos on the rishonim so to say they dont align with them is not accurate. (example- Rav Chaim explaining Rambam)

I dont disagree with this part
Lol. I meant what I said.

I believe the reid is often an explanation of the rishonim with svaros and definitions as well as how they understand the gemara and its most fundamental concepts.
I said mine. I don't want to open my mouth too much. Suffice it to say you'll be hard pressed to align any of these "Reid" with the mehalech of any of the Rishonim or Achronim. A shame that many people devote their energies to it, and can spend years learning without even learning the fundamental miktzoias, in Tanach, Shas, Halacha, and Machshava.
