Watt ’n mors   12 comments

For my English-speaking friends, „mors“ is a contraction of „my“ and „arse“: so, the caption would be „What an arse!“

Yesterday in nearby Comfort/TX I saw this modern Tesla being charged in front of the 1880 Faust Hotel:

To me it looked as if this charging-station was provided by the hotel. That would be some service, wouldn’t it?
