24C. So nice. Went for a walk with camera bag on my shoulder - home with no pictures or videos. Nothing caught my attention or interest. It happens.

Gold is the pile of poker chips in the next global crisis.
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gold-is-the-pile-of-poker-chips-in-the-next-global-crisis-2016-04-05

Economists and other experts debate the role of gold in the fiat money system. Since money supply is no longer tied to gold reserves, some argue there is no sense to stockpile gold reserves. Canada has been downsizing its gold reserves over the years. According to the article above, Canada will not have a seat at the negotiating table due to Canada having insufficient gold reserves. Canada will have no say on the world stage when the fiat money system collapses.

2012 Tesla Model S Needs $8500 Brake Repair
http://gas2.org/2016/05/21/2012-tesla-model-s-needs-8500-brake-repair/

"The customer was told that all 4 brake pistons had seized due to a combination of several factors. First, with regenerative braking being normal on an electric car like the Tesla, the mechanical brakes don’t get used nearly as much as they do in a conventional car. The service adviser suggested he treat the car to several hard brake applications each week to keep the braking system in good working order."

Sounds a little like what I was told by a Nissan service center with the rear brakes in my previous Nissan Maxima. I was once told to apply hard braking more often. I tend to drive relatively slow in town/city streets and since it was a standard transmission, I did not have to apply the brake much which happens to be my style anyway. Two of my children have remarked at how slowly I drive (I evidently have more patience that they have). OTOH, I do everything I can to keep from going over 140 km/hr on the 401. When I switched to a private mechanic as opposed to the Nissan authorized service centers, my mechanic told me rear disc brakes should never have happened - rear drum brakes are still better in the opinon of my mechanic.

SpaceX Falcon 9 Landing on Droneship in the Atlantic Ocean https://youtu.be/HZfv8fWc3w8

I am a fan of space science fiction and real space achievements. http://this1that1whatever.com/technology/Space.php

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket deployed the Dragon spacecraft to low Earth orbit to deliver critical cargo to the International Space Station (ISS) for NASA.  Dragon deployed about 10 minutes after liftoff and will attach to the ISS about two days after launch. The first stage of the Falcon 9 experimental landing on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship in the Atlantic Ocean was a success.

European Union ponders better way to deal with migrants. It won't solve the problem but send as many to Canada as possible. Idiots in Ottawa pretending to run the government efficiently by being less transparent with (i.e. hide) as many things as possible (contrary to election promises), for example, the first federal budget in this term.
