As long as you brand it Tesla, I'm all good.
Musk's a shameless grifter whose talent doesn't extend much further than exploiting tech nerds' blind spots
You realise he taught himself rocket science don't you? And then help\led the design on their first set of rockets?
Maybe, but he also passed off the hyperloop as a viable idea. It isn't. It's also not an original idea, first being patented in the 18th century. Then there's the whole tunnels under LA thing.. the less said the better. Then there's using rockets to travel across the planet in an hour, even less said the better.
He also called a guy a pedo because he didn't like the (allegedly) unfit-for-purpose submarine that Musk delivered to the cave in Thailand.
Musk is just another disrupter, admittedly he's doing a good job of enacting change via leadership in various fields, but he has his flaws just like everybody else. I don't mean you Gunna, or really anybody else in this thread, but the internet is full of Musk fanboys claiming he's this flawless god-emperor type, and it bothers me.
And Palmer united...
Lots of ex-employees stating he's a real 'mate' (to use the colloquialism above) to work for. I wouldn't want to have anything to do with him.
There's a TV series and book (although I prefer my books on screens) about that (The Expanse),
His motivations may be fine, but as above, he doesn't seem to mind abusing his workforce to get them implemented.
a beautiful illustration of my point.
Hanson/PHON (+Malcolm Roberts, Fraser Anning), Palmer/Australia Party, Katter, Dutton, Christensen. While QLD doesn't have a total monopoly on RWNJ politicians, it does seem to have many high profile ones.
Yeah he makes some bad choices and needs to lay off twitter sometimes, he is certainly fallible.
His early team said the same, even those that no longer work for him. No one would work for him in designing a reusable rocket as they thought it was nuts and didn't want their name on it.
Yet Coffs Harbour / Woogoolga is the banana capital of Australia... are their bananas straight?
Until they send them up to us, yes.
Yeah like printing off emails to show to my colleagues!
I print this thread before I go to the bathroom.
Oh shit, you just reminded me about the latest book.. and it's out! Reeing of approval.
I should hope so. Why the hell would you have a printer in the bathroom?
cold day, warm paper straight from the fuser?
that's gotta be rough on the ol' date.
do you fold or scrunch?
Nah, because pab's doesn't use an MSP - his a4 is 3 ply.
How do you get your ass clean with so much shit already on the paper?
What value can an MSP add for printers and consumables? Straight to the source for that shit.
