This guy already orchestrated a 25 million dollar fine into 200 billion in additional market cap and gets to smoke weed and say sh*t all day.

Elon Musk chuckled. "You mean the apartheid Emeralds?"

Until they get idiots to stop killing themselves with what they have on the market a full self-driven model is the least of their concerns and will only act as a way to cut out the middleman's effort to die if placed into production

Man, it's almost as if everything we've ever been told about how capitalism is about working hard and being a real go-getter was a lie.

"Do you expect me to talk?"
"No, Mr. Musk. I expect you to drive."

I'm shocked.  Elon "Hyperloop is not actually high-speed pressurized tube but instead just a private underground road for normal cars" Musk is wildly exaggerating his company's technology?  This cannot be right.  This writer clearly has an agenda.

My Twitter is still besieged by weirdos that are upset that I pointed out that a one-lane tunnel that you can drive your shiatty exploding cats through at 35 mph isn't innovative, no matter how many flashing LEDs they put on it lol.

It's just a matter of time. Ask us if we'd ever have what we have now,20,30 years ago and we'd tell you to F.O.

Eventually he'll be right.

Can't we just kill him and take all his money? Why aren't we doing this with all the billionaires yet, again? I'm confused.

I don't doubt it. I just like dunking in Elon Musk.

Let's face it: if SpaceX found the alien, we'd have a bunch of people cheering him on all like "it's strength and genius isn't hampered by conscious or morality. The crew is expendable. We need to bring it back alive!"

Exaggerating to the public is one thing, exaggerating to investors is frowned upon, and I think it's illegal but I'm not sure, it certainly can get you successfully sued.
 
2021-05-08 1:12:21 PM  
That's wonderful news Mr. Musk, when the vehicles commit vehicular homicide will the corporate entity be responsible because they're people.
 
2021-05-08 1:14:33 PM  
There are 1 million autonomous cars and 250 Million non-autonomous cars on the roads.  I wonder what the flaw in this cunning plan is....

If we actually did that, the money of the billionaires would just be given to other rich people. No one would actually benefit.

By working hard you mean buying up the intellectual rights from actual hard workers and then pretending he's some kind of Iron-man style super genius? Yeah, okay.

You actually believe that PayPal was some amazingly unique software, when reality is that it was essentially granted an eBay payment system monopoly.

/rent-seeking is such hard work!

Then people like Elon for doing a good thing for Earth.

He has delivered 40% of what he promised, but in doing so he has delivered 400% of what anyone else has delivered. That's not exactly failure.

I feel as though it's understated how farking wild Elon was during that whole thing with the kids in the cave. Like, Elon just came along and was like "what if we over engineer a submarine!!!" And everybody who knew what they were doing was like "ooookay, that wouldn't fit in the cave and we don't have that kind of time anyway. I'd be easier, quicker, safer, and cheaper just to give the kids some rudimentary diving lessons." And then out of nowhere, Elon just escalated it to like "oh yeah...? Well, you're a pedophile!"

That's a totally sane and well-balanced person there, lol.

I fully expect there to be autonomous-only roads, or at least lanes, before too long.

His input is what creates value. Hard work is great and necessary, but you also need the crazy guys who don't let reality get in their way.

Hard-working people got us the Ford Taurus. Getting to the Tesla Model S required someone like Musk.

Not really, the advent of better electric cars has largely been dependent on better batteries being available.

Elon Musk is a front man, and an erratic one at that.

Ironically, subby, that's basically how Musk became CEO. Just wandered into someone else's startup and took over.
