In the past Musk said he only felt the need to stay on as CEO of Tesla long enough for them to get their stride. It was only more recently that Musk dug-in and said he wanted to stay CEO indefinitely. In contrast, he's never said anything about one day giving away control of SpaceX. SpaceX is his true love. Tesla is more of a long-term detour/quagmire he got himself into when he pushed away Martin Eberhard. That's why in his most recent interview he sort of rhetorically asked for people to give him names who could do a better job of Tesla CEO. I think Musk is doing it because he feels (rightly or wrongly) that he's the only one who can, not because he feels it's his calling or passion to do so. There's a lot about his job responsibilities he simply doesn't like doing, and people tend to do shit work when they are only doing it out of obligation or spite (ala to burn the shorts).

That is myth-making, not a confession.

Musk is a bullshit artist. Unfortunately for him, he lacks Jobs's charisma. Also, he got too ambitious. When it came to Jobs, you kind of knew he was bullshitting, but he did it so artfully that it was impossible to resent him... he was just an amazing actor.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
Azaelia Banks has some savage insults. She is legit crazy but with the kind of crazy that has nuggets of truth.

Elon Musk needs to step away from the day to day operations of Tesla and get someone to be COO like he did with SpaceX. Board of Directors needs to be far more active in reining him in (and I suspect they've started now that non-family members and ppl with actual executive experience are onboard). I suspect anyone who is qualified to run Tesla would not want to cause they know they'd have to deal with Elon.

He is a megalomaniac with a weird cult of personality around him and needs to get out of his own way.

I recall reading an interview of his where he stated that he can't be alone and it explains his poor lack of judgement when it comes to his romantic choices.
I was floored when I learned he has 6 children. 6!!! How can you be lonely with so many kids around? He has 6 kids yet still is super focused on dating known starlets, unabashed gold-diggers and emo singers who bring around crazy guests. Doesn't seem like much of a family man. He still seems to be stuck in arrested development teenage mode.

He's also an attention-whore who reads too much of his own press. A true celebrity-grade CEO. Comapre that to Jobs who was notorious about keeping his private life private, including keeping a lid on his terminal illness for as long as possible.

I remember seeing an interview with Musk not that long ago where he did a TV interview in his own home. Guess who was a fixture in his home at that time? His ex-wife (the bitter one that had so much negative to spew about Musk's various flaws and kinks). His ex-wife may not technically live there but you'd never know it by how much time she spends there. Allowing that is cuck-like behavior. Doesn't sound like she's around quite as often anymore but she was at the time (which was immediately before or even during the Amber Heard era).

So the dynamic at the house has to be circus-like and you can understand why he might prefer sleeping on the factory floor.

Was watching his video with MKBHD on YouTube the other day, interview was filled with stuttering galore. He didn't look like he's in a great place.

'Elon Musk is falling apart'

Now his factories are going up in smoke...



Tries to create a product to reduce "carbon footprints", squanders any benefit he may have caused all in one day, due to one fire...

Quote:What we have learned is that communication with elite people does *not* improve your communication level with regular people. We just stated you’ll be communicating differently out of the gate depending on how talented the person is.

While we always wondered why there were rich people who had their lives run by their wives. And. We always wondered why some guys could be good with women and fail at sales… it all clicked. It is because they are different communication waves. To think this one through, take anyone you know who is good at being popular with regular people. Now ask yourself if he is able to generate a high income (typically not!). Similarly, find a guy who is good at making cash, but fails when it comes to dating. Now we see a trend… communication with regular people improves communication with women but does not improve communication skills with elite people.

This makes a lot of sense. If you’re meeting random women at a bar, restaurant, club, gym etc, it is much more likely that they are of normal intelligence. Similarly, if you generate a high income you’re generally forced to interact with high IQ and cunning individuals. This type of communication is just not the same at all.

Quote:This last section was a big leap but really helped us understand why the world view can be so different for talented people. It’s because the language doesn’t translate. If you decide to volunteer once (for fun), you’ll find that your communication dumbs down to bar/club level language. This is because it’s the easiest form of messaging. Similarly, that rich guy who has his life run by his wife… never learned the communication game. What happened exactly? He ended up finding a girl that dealt with his odd behaviors and he’s unwilling to lose her since it was so difficult to find a single girl in the first place!

She's just salty because she didn't get that big caveman cock.

I know a black girl that only fucks white guys when I see one.

Caveman, pork/chicken skin, and magic melanin talk is a dead giveaway.

I bet she owns a necklace shaped like whatever African country she says her ancestors are from, or at least an Africa pendant.

BTW fellow huwhites, these necklaces are to us what hoop earrings are to black guys. Remember this.

As if he weren't contemptible enough, he piles onto McCain before his body has time to cool off. His tweet:

Starting to think the only way Elon will be able to make a buck very shortly.

Is by writing books on how -not- to run a large business...

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart
The Securities and Exchange Commission is conducting a formal investigation into his tweet about taking Tesla private. He’ll get slammed over that one. With his most recent erratic behavior- calling the cave diver in Thailand a pedophile, admitting his health is declining and he is using drugs, to his materially misleading and false statement about taking Tesla private- the board of directors should already be looking at a replacement.

If he would just stay off of twitter and shut his mouth he would be ok.

The creators of the Iron Man movies modeled the Tony Stark character after Elon Musk. Of course he doesn't actually live up to the movie character, but the comparison has some legit basis.

How are rich celebrities with EVERYTHING to lose still willing to invite this psycho vindictive cunt to social gatherings of any sort? There is a 100% chance that if you interact with her in any capacity, she will use her social media following (the only thing of value she has) to do anything she can to ruin you and make your life worse off. How retarded can you possibly be?

Successful people who associate with her are comparable to those gay "bugchaser" guys whose life mission is to score AIDS.

Anyone who works with software knows that trash code makes the world go round.

Some of the products I work with we have to implement a stack of what I call "tiptoe" code just to prevent all the scenarios that make the thing crash. Innovation and heavily pressured time to market never creates elegant software.
