I hope the emoji in my screen name is not annoying to screen reader users.

I'm doing this for an experiment that might take multiple years to be finished

After spending way too much time in a tesla this week I can say the following:

- It's a nicer car than any of the internal combustion cars i've been in
- It seems way worse designed than the BYD we got on our last road trip but the longer range makes it the better car
- A lot of features aren't thought out well
- The user interface is awful and breaks some of the most basic UX rules
- The "AI" that is supposed to control the whole car in areas where that is legal is embarrassingly bad and I wouldn't trust it to even just park the car
- Modern cars have neat safety features that should be mandatory on all vehicles sold
- Cars are awful, trains are cool

I spoke Dutch with Dutch people today for the first time ever (offline).

Yes, it was only a two word interaction but I heard them, understood what they were saying and came up with the correct response.

I'm kinda proud of that

I wonder in how many languages the word for the Netherlands is plural and in how many it's singular

I was quite surprised to learn that the dutch word is singular
