Certainly seems bananas but that's also what people thought when he said he was going to space using reusable rockets. We'll never know how it'll pan out until we know. Looking forward to seeing it regardless...

You can go a long way in Merka by talking big and being famous.

Theranos and FTX are just laughable and the weird thing about Bernie Maddof is that he never approached anybody. They used to bribe the starters are the golf club just to get a game with him.

Meanwhile twitter moderation wasn't even picking up the Christchurch shooting video

Devils advocate…

Why should the Christchurch video be suppressed overseas? It’s a piece of history, that is part of history, even though we personally may be appalled by it.

Next they will be renaming towns and pulling down statues of historical figures because under todays lens they don’t like them

It's funny watching people get all up and arms about it. He's winding them up which is also entertaining.

At the end of the day it's not my money. So he can blow his money away how he likes. He either improves the company or it falls apart. It's seems like it will be entertaining regardless.

Actually it is not real money.

Tesla has shareholders, and a board of directors. He makes all his income by selling or borrowing against his Tesla shares.

He raised the U$40 billion to buy Twitter by borrowing against Tesla shares.

Many say it is smoke and mirrors. Tesla cars are are shite and have safety problems. He is making money on carbon credits.

His shares had tanked but for some reason bounced back today.

the guy is a dick, most people cannot see it because he says he is rich and famous,

It's taking him a long time to destroy Twitter, how does it keep functioning with seemingly no tech staff?

Just remember, most of histories pioneers and inventions were made by flawed genius’s.

Elon is no different

The problem with your analogy is that unlike FTX and Theranos Elon Musk has delivered time and time again. Thats where your argument completely falls to pieces...

Many say it is smoke and mirrors. Tesla cars are are shite and have safety problems. He is making money on carbon credits.
He makes a percentage of his profits from tax rebates and carbon credits but the overwhelming majority lately have come from production effeciencies, car deliveries and breaking into new markets like China.

Despite the hiccups along the way the simple fact is that EV is the future and it got a huge kick in the ass thanks to Musk. Every single car company in the world in now playing catch up with even Lamborghini set to release one now. Fossil fuels are for fossils.

the guy is a dick, most people cannot see it because he says he is rich and famous,
Here lies the real problem. You dont like him so its time to get grumpy and begrudging for no other reason than a jealousy of sorts. If he fails, fine. You get to say I told you so but until he does your opinions seem more a reflection of yourself than of him...

Do you have one?
Have you driven one?
Or are Twitter users saying so?

What is your evidence they are shite?
How reliable is the Tesla 2022?

According to US Consumer Reports, the 2022 Tesla Model X is unreliable. It received the lowest possible predicted reliability score from the publication. CR's reliability ratings are based on previous model years and how well they've performed.23/08/2022

Musk has delivered profits from share prices and carbon credits.

The Tesla product is a lemon.

PayPal was mainly Peter Thiel's work.

Also if you were to see some of this Tweets on twitter the guy is clearly not all there, to put it politely.

I could not afford the time he has to spend firing back at posters, with some of the craziest shite you can imagine. He makes Donald Trump seem sane.

The guy is a total dick.

I would not buy shares in anything he was managing.

And I suspect he wouldn’t hire you to mow his lawns

People actually idolise this guy... yikes.
Lots of rumours about Musk, and more to the point Tesla.

The word has been out for some time that Tesla is not in the greatest shape, why I don't know.

It could be crap quality vehicles, no real income and mounting notice before congress, but anyway the word is more news is due soon and it is not good.

All Musk's wealth is in Tesla stock, which he has been dumping to keep liquid.

Twitter isn't paying its rent on its offices and is losing money drastically.

Musk is due to pay US$1 billion in interest next year. The word is he doesn't have it in his back pocket, so to speak.

Many cannot see Twitter surviving at this rate.

Now, who word like to see that? Putin for one, because Twitter is not pro Putin.

I can’t take him seriously. Put a pair of oversized glasses on him and he’d look like Austin Powers.

Seriously, Tesla cars are very innovative but atm hugely unreliable. I’ll wait until the price comes down and Toyota perfect the electric drive before buying one. I read somewhere that graphene is being looked at as a new material for batteries, it will take a step change in technology I guess to improve range which is too short for my needs
