    Elon basically owes everything he has to gullible Dems. Climate change denying Republicans bankrolled by big oil would have gone to extreme measures to squash Tesla before it got big enough to be a player in the automotive industry had they been in control of the government at the time.

    Throw this on to all the time he spends on Twitter and that accounts for all of his time. No time for rocket science now is there?

    also, to be fair to elon, he literally does have more hours in the day than the average person because he's very clearly addicted to stimulants

    Elon Musk being the inspiration for a character that debuted 8 years before he was born might be the best thing I’ve ever read.

    Although I understand why they’d think that being that Stark was an alcoholic megalomaniac.

    In Elon Musk: Iron Man, Tony Stark and the armor have been around for a decade. Elon buys a percentage of Stark Industries, forces Tony out then tells the world he invented the Iron Man armor.

    A decade later Stark Industries stock drops 40% and Musk still becomes a right wing troll to hide the fact he keeps showing his dick everywhere and offers to buy ponies.

    Between whatever he loses from this, the billion dollar cancellation fee, and the corresponding tesla losses, this has to be one of the worst deals of all time.

    That’s not an answer. Musk is hemorrhaging money because he knew his pervy shit was coming. Speak to me of his incredible business acumen…

    If it helps drive the conversation, I do not think you are a stupid motherfucker. Now can you speak to this stupid motherfucker?

    Not that you really have any interest in my actual thoughts, but I’ll engage in good faith.

    Tesla stock dropping in price doesn’t impact my view of his intelligence, which is generally what this conversation has been about. I think the stock was and has been overvalued.

    We’ll see if he pays the $1b fee for the deal. I’ll grant that pissing money away on that if he’s forced to is not particularly smart. Doesn’t really change my push back on the narrative in here, but whatever. I don’t think it’s controversial to say that someone who has started/led multiple $billion+ businesses probably has some business acumen and is smart (at least in certain disciplines). Y’all act like he inherited his entire fortune.

    What a piece of shit. And the generalization that him and other grifters do is so frustrating. He probably has never considered why some people wanted/needed to work from home.

    If there is one thing life has taught me = there are a ton of dumb as hell people who have made money, encountered success.

    So yeah, my threshold for establishing one’s intelligence is a bittttt higher than merely pointing out “Hey look, that guy has made a ton of money. Thus, he is a Genius.”

    Only a UF sidewalk fan in Quad Cities could be that devoid of frontal lobes.

    The point is that his success is not as self made as it seems and that he appears to be a complete bimbo when he’s discussing anything outside his lane. And completely lacks self awareness.

    I’ve never disputed that his dad has money. Nor has anyone ever provided any facts about how much was given to Elon, etc. And all of that kinda misses the point. Believe I’ve said multiple times that even if he got $10-20m (or more), at some point it’s kinda impressive to found/lead the companies he has and create the wealth he has.

    I don’t even disagree with most of you on some of this stuff. He’s a dork, maybe on the spectrum, says stupid shit all the time, makes childish unfunny jokes, is socially awkward, etc.

    He did not create wealth out of thin air.
