I never heard of Musk until about four years ago.
I gather he was heavily involved in PayPal, but otherwise the things he's involved in seem to be pretty
pointless. he seems like a big hype self promotion with no substance

A salesman who sells the product of himself as billionaire visionary. Kind of like Trump in that way.

Didn't start PayPal, didn't start Tesla, his dad didn't even own that diamond mine as far as I know, his real deception is that he's in any way interesting.

He's going to win though, nothing we can do about it, his wealth is directly dependent on the Tesla share price so his job is to keep making headlines and here we are, discussing him.

His "skill" appears to be opportunism and being able to pick the right people to have on board.

Someone that rich should be able to afford better plugs. Football players are only millionaires and they're almost universally getting good work done now.

when the guy sued Musk for defamation he somehow didn't win
this belongs in the Hellworld thread
fucking hell.

It never ceases to amaze me how much of mankinds intellectual effort is involved in
a) making rich cunts richer (pretty much the whole finance industry)
b) helping rich cunts protect themselves (corporate and civil law)

not that a + b are not fairly overlapping

A buddy of mine was wearing an "ELON" hoodie lately. I was kinda appalled and asked did it refer to Elon Musk, and he just laughed like this was a big obvious joke, but I didn't understand. After a while I asked his wife, and it turns out there's a university in the States called Elon that she had been visiting and got the hoodie for free and gave it to him. I was relieved. I think they are only very dimly aware of who Elon Musk is
