Holy fiddlesticks.

If you name your child that, it's abuse. I'm sorry. They should take the child away from you.

Not hyperbole. That's a real person who has rights. Children are not property of their parents. They are people who have to live ~100 years, and if their parents are doing things which will likely interfere with their ability to do so, then that's abuse.

Agreed, one does not saddle a child with a ridiculous /pretentious name.
I hope the kid is strong enough to resist and change the name at 18.
Heck, I can imagine this conversation when the kid is in kindergarten:

Q: Hey, aren't you that X-whatever kid?

A: Please call me Tom.

Musk said his son’s name is pronounced “X Ash A 12.” The X is just “X” and the A-12 is just “A 12.”

There's a video and they talk about the name first thing in the video. They start talking about neural networks and AI, right after Musk didn't really pronounce the name, he only "explained it" ( not really an explanation IMHO), then I stopped watching.

I did not watch the 2 hour long video so I don't know if blunts were smoked.

I can guarantee you there were blunts involved at some point.

Elon Musk defies coronavirus order and asks to be arrested

Tesla is reopening its California car factory against Alameda County’s wishes


I want electric cars

I want space travel

I want technology to move forward

He had his crazy stupid ideas? sell a flamethrower? hyperloop? nonsense baby name?

What the fiddlesticks happened?

Don't say drugs. Drugs didn't do that. Oh, I'm sure drugs were used, but drugs only helped push him over the edge.

*sigh*

If I don't see news this week of him getting ousted from his companies, I'll finally accept that I'll never understand how the world works.

-

So, if anyone else doing cool stuff? technology wise?

Blue origin and Virgin galactic? meh, nice stuff, but not really space travel.

Google? samsung? nothing revolutionary.

Oculus and Steam VR? cool toys, not life changing.

-

I couldn't find the link, but I read somewhere, some self proclaimed lawyer, saying that the Alameda county did things wrong, but still, there's a better way to fight that,a legal way, isn't it? And you'd think Elon Musk knows there's this thing in business called Public Relations, and also "we live in a society" and all that.

He built Tesla as a house of cards and if they're shut down for long, the house collapses. He's scared and behaving like a narcissist behaves when threatened.

I love the cavalier attitude he and others like him have for the life and health of their employees.

I suspect half or more of the "open business now" business owners will continue to shelter in place most days while their employees face the risks of infection and contagion to their families.

We don't actually know. All we know is that he was rich enough to hob nob with Epstein and his pals. Which, of course, is the problem with these sorts of photos. They imply more of a relationship than is necessarily present, and it's because the ultra-wealthy live differently than the rest of us.

But if you insist...

I'm sure that woman was in a lot of parties and took pictures with a lot of rich people. She was probably networking, doing "her job".

Yadda yadda, blah blah blah, all rich people are evil. No evidence of wrongdoing needed. /sarcasm. I mean, yes... but no.

And please, I beg you all, don't ever say "eat the rich". I assure you, I understand the sentiment, but nobody is eating anybody. Nobody is killing anybody. Nobody has even tried it. And if you killed all the "top 1%" rich people, the next 1% would just rise up and take their places.

So please, I beg you, electric cars, space travel, solar power.

[snip]

They are around although they are rather expensive. In the Tesla showroom in a local mall one of the wall displays is devoted to the roof with solar panel tiles and to the Tesla Powerwall to store the collected energy.

Personally I think that overall this is a great idea although I do have one objection: the use of lithium-ion batteries in the Powerwall. This may be Musk's fault for incorporating his car battery business into the Powerwall, but the main reason for using Li-ion batteries in portable devices like a Tesla car or a cell phone is that they are the lightest batteries when comparing power delivered to weight of the battery.

The Powerwall is not portable.

It isn't as if lithium itself is particularly rare. It is estimated that lithium is #5 or 6 of the most common elements in the Earth's crust, but because it is highly reactive all of that lithium is found in tightly bound compounds. It takes a lot of energy to process those lithium compounds into pure lithium for use inside Li-ion batteries. Perhaps worth that cost and effort and risk for portable devices, but not so much when portability is not paramount. The Powerwall batteries could be made from much safer and less polluting materials.

Who knows but he grew up on what is the SA analogue of a slave plantation and that kind of upbringing will warp a person.

Elon Musk says he’s tested positive and negative for COVID-19

Tests can be faulty, or the person doing them can do them wrong, that happens... but this guy tweeting human waste about that... he should always remember he almost got fired once

god please don't let him ruin tesla and spacex

Musk wants off of this planet so bad he can't stand it, so when it comes to SpaceX, he is totally serious. I haven't seen any BS tweets from him on that front. Other than heckling short sellers, he hasn't really done anything stupid with Tesla either.

Now, in his personal life, he's a freak - no doubt about that. However, he has been a reasonably good steward as a CEO.

Ok, I think you're right, but my point is that stockholders and investors and customers, read about the crazy human waste, and spacex and tesla are still businesses, driven by money. As a geek, I love what they've done with technology. I want that to keep going.
