Been watching Musk in my feeds since he jumped in with the mini-sub offer.  I felt it was a tawdry PR stunt.  Then Musk posted the email from the dive team that said the sub should be developed and to proceed. Then another member of the dive team says it was a PR stunt.  THEN Musk fires off the 'pedo' retort.  ....Hard to say if the submarine was or wasn't a PR stunt, but Musk sure screwed up with that last retort.

I agree with some Tesla analysts/investors "Musk is too thin-skinned and hot-tempered to be using Twitter."   (Elon, put the keyboard down and back away from the screen before somebody --nevermind, too late.)

I remember there was a guy who publicly complained about the delay in one of the models and Musk gave the guy a lifetime ban from buying any Tesla products.

Apparently the other guy told Musk 'where to stick his submarine idea' beforehand. Still, no excuse for escalating it with that kind of sociopathic lying about his character.

He definitely seems immature emotionally, that lifetime ban is a bit crazy!

Cults need to make examples to show the herd who is in power.

It was a smart move from a marketing perspective.

When I see all the Tesla owners waiting in their vehicles at the charging stations I can't help but feel bad for them.  They've spent somewhere between $68,000 $138,800 and they have to repeatedly waste their day at these places or wait for many hours for their home systems to do their thing at a much slower rate.  It is a lot of dedication.  I know that batteries are more efficient than hydrogen full cells, but the convenience of being able to pump and go just like an regular ICE car is a huge advantage.

I went on a factory tour, it was pretty cool.  The show room definitely had that MAC feel to it though.

I got a lifetime ban from Hammer Nutrition products because I dared to say that zero-calorie sweeteners were linked to metabolic issues* and I wish they offered a unsweetened versions of a particular product.

The company founder, Brian Franks, literally wrote back to me himself to say "You don't know what the f### you're talking about. We don't want your business. You are no longer welcome to buy from us."

Of course, they don't track me and they do have one product I do really like and which I have bought since my "ban"

Anyway, I suppose Elon and Brian could be real fun at a party together. Except Elon doesn't go to parties.

*Two examples of why I said this.

Super-caps should cut down the waittime.

Ye,flipping aspartame etc, tons of clinical evidence. Don't drink gatorade! Or any sodas. My ex gf's Dad bought a book once, i thought it was about cocaine when i saw the cover - "Pure, White and Deadly", all about sugar, very scary.

That reminds me i must post about pet food.

Interesting. Makes perfect sense. It is almost an exact automotive analog to Apple.

What other car company gets free advertising like this
