Tesla Maybe, Who Knows, Possibly Sort Of Considering Southern Dallas Factory

The idea is certainly eye-catching and extremely heavily qualified: Tesla might be looking at land in southern Dallas for a new $5 billion battery factory. Would that be huge? Indeed, it would. Tons of jobs, and likely a ton of ancillary development would come along with it, too, because workers need places to eat and live and so on. Good times. Yes, sir.

The Dallas Version of Basic

At Jezebel, Erin Gloria Ryan has a super-entertaining guide to every sub-category of "basic" in the United States. The Dallas entry:
Job: Real estate. Maybe marketing. Drives: A massive SUV her dad bought for her. Wears: Kendra Scott jewelry, Tori Burch accessories, 7 For All Mankind or Citizens of Humanity jeans. A statement necklace if it's a special occasion. Listens to: 106.1 KISS FM. Spends her summers: Being a bridesmaid. She has been a bridesmaid like 15 times. Celebrity aspiration: Jessica Simpson.
Do you agree? If you don't, you're probably basic. Just kidding. Kind of. No, really. Maybe.
