    Donbas we should ignore History and put it to a vote after 8 years of Russia violently displacing 80% of the population there

    The Thai cave rescue meltdown is an all-timer.

    I still laugh every time I think about actual experts clowning the shit out of Elon and him getting so down bad that he resorted to screeching “pedophile!” out of absolutely nowhere.

    someone pointed out on twitter that the Musk tweet is near verbatim what was rumored to be Putins acceptable starting point

    INTERESTING that he'd share the same position

    I think your answer to that can be found on this page of this thread. All of a sudden Elon comes out basically parroting the Russian demands for the peace deal to his 107 million followers on twitter, and a day later he's back to buying twitter.

    It is similar to Trump on twitter . Even muting or blocking they never stfu and basically drive the conversation on the app with whatever stupid opinion they give and it gets hard to avoid
