Trident vs. Tesla

Yesterday was 3/3, and I found myself at Pagliacci Pizza on Broadway eating lunch with Var. There was a bright red Tesla Model S parked out front, we had a great view of it from our window seat as we munched our slices. The kid behind the counter who waited on us, ducked outside to check it out, and then quickly ran back in, exclaiming "Damn! I lost $5 because I bet it was a Maserati." then the staff began talking about the trident being the Maserati logo.

The trident (Poseidon's weapon and Shiva's arrow) have been a long standing and venerable sync here at gosporn, so I was curious. When we got back home I saw that Libyan Sibyl had posted Follow the Trident and apparently the whole world is syncing tridents this week.

Maserati was a prominent Superbowl 2014 advertiser: "Now, we strike!" and a few weeks later, Croatia is in flames and there is the kind of US/Russian face off that hasn't been seen for decades. The Ukrainian coat of arms is a stylized trident called the tryzub, which means "three teeth."

The "brand confusion" between the two automobiles representing an invitation from sync to confuse or interchange the two logos.

Tesla Motors is named after Nikola Tesla, the enigmatic scientist and electrical engineer who's alleged secret work is often tied to conspiracy theories of "free energy", UFO's and secret weapons. Some link his theories to the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, which has been accused of being a secret weapon capable of causing everything from chronic fatigue syndrome to floods, droughts, hurricanes, thunderstorms and... earthquakes.
A significant earthquake has struck the Crimean peninsula in the Ukraine within the last hour and Russian military sources are claiming it was a deliberate attack by the United States using it's HAARP Array in Alaska, in retaliation for Russia placing troops into the Ukraine. -source
Poseidon is the god of earthquakes - which he causes by striking his trident to the ground.

Hey Michael -

Monday, 3/3/14, was the 100th Anniversary of Alfieri Maserati's founding of the Societa Anonima Officine Alfieri Maserati in Milan in 1914.

The Maserati logo is based on the Fountain of Neptune:,_Bologna

Milan will also see "the 49th edition of Tirreno-Adriatico, which will begin on March 12th in Donoratico and ends seven days later in San Benedetto del Tronto.

The ‘Race of the Two Seas’ is played out between Italy’s Tyrrhenian and Adriatic coasts. An important race in itself, Tirreno-Adriatico also reveals who the form riders are before the first major classic of the season, Milan-Sanremo."

Here's the 2012 winner holding the spoils:

All Roads lead to Rome ...

Got to ride in a director friend's Telsa when I was staying at the "Riot Hyatt" in Oct, to shoot my "701" interview. What an amazing car. I loved that the door handles disappeared into the door.
