    Also, fire is the best disinfectant. Followed by actual disinfectant, then vinegar, then water... Elon Musk is a fucking idiot.

    Cum is not a good disinfectant. I think it is more of an infectant.

    My BIL is a director at NASA. Literal rocket scientist and the overall (book) smartest person I know. He’s also the most conservative person I know. Not new school rwnj conservative, but decades long Reagan/Bush era crazy.

    I was visiting a few weeks back and he came in hot with “I never realized how spot on Elon Musk was with everything until recently…”

    The grift is working.

    But how? People can see the Vegas/Exploding Tesla death tunnel with their own eyes. I guess it’s a similar thing to Steve Jobs. People think he was a tech genius and not the fake it til you make it taskmaster that he was.

    One you buy into someone’s ideas, you get tunnel
    vision on their flaws. Use Trump as an example. People aren’t born this stupid, they form an ideology of what they believe to be true and when someone backs up their claims there is full buy in.

    There is a tangible product we can credit Jobs with. Musk buys established shit and pretends he is, but people whose vote counts as much as mine (or more so in many cases) think he’s smart.

    He’s smart the way people think Trump is rich. If you’re too stupid to know better of course you’ll believe this.

    It’s a damn shame that Jobs didn’t last until “Raw Water” took Silicon Valley by storm. It’s honestly hilarious how the hyper competent people that live there are also woo woo Goop type imbeciles.

    Apparently in talks, Elon invokes exploring business topics "from first principles,"and this sounds flashy to people who don't know, but its a phrase constantly used by physicists and related fields to go "these are the governing equations, apply conditions and solve for things."

    It's good marketing but lol its just reusing math-y talk for corporate nonsense like "synergy"

    I did bump into an elaborate table once owned by the Farenese family but thats fine because they were the Elon Musk's of their time.

    He doesn't have the funding. I also wondered why he would buy it when there's really no money to be made from acquiring it

    he's made his point, he's endeared himself to "free speech" bros and caused a big kerfuffle, the reality of the economics are very tricky though and i'm not sure he actually wants to run this fucking business (which as others have noted is kinda shitty). there's also big risk potentially to TSLA by trying to navigate these waters. still too early to say what will happen one way or another IMO ...

    They’ve advised against anyone attending the World Cup to not bring rainbow flags. Qatari’s must be as easily offended Ben Shapiro. Qatar probably would advise him not to travel there as well.

    i guess so, yeah so i'm not sure what the benefit would be if you currently hold shares. i guess any news that speaks to Musk's commitment/long-term plans will get the trading place closer to the proposed tender # ...

    Yeah, I guess if people were thinking the sale might fall through and were given a new reason to believe it won’t, that would make it back up.

    It would be the most on-brand move ever. He'll back out, blame somebody else, and walk away with billions from stock manipulation.

    Elon divorced, remarried, and divorced the same woman in a span of three years so maybe it’s just indecision on his part.

    still a fairly legit possibility the SEC tries to make this difficult for him at least due to misfiling the activist/passive paperwork from his initial 9% stake ...

    It also frames white people being told to hate black people or think of them as less than human as them not suffering consequences. Even if the hateful aren’t the targets of oppression, being filled with that hate isn’t without consequences. It makes for awful people.
