Elon Musk thread

Currently, Musk is dating pop singer Grimes, the rebound after his relationship with Amber Heard. Grimes looks a bit alternative.



Grimes invited fellow singer Azealia Banks to Musk's house to collaborate on some music. Grimes flaked on her, angering Banks enough that she spilled the beans about Musk based on what Grimes told her in private. Highlights:



















"Pabst beer pussy methhead junkie"



In a new interview (worth the read), looks like what she said matched his business difficulties and his use of recreational drugs.

Elon Musk was at home in Los Angeles, struggling to maintain his composure. "This past year has been the most difficult and painful year of my career," he said. "It was excruciating."

The year has only gotten more intense for Mr. Musk, the chairman and chief executive of the electric-car maker Tesla, since he abruptly declared on Twitter last week that he hoped to convert the publicly traded company into a private one. The episode kicked off a furor in the markets and within Tesla itself, and he acknowledged on Thursday that he was fraying.

At multiple points in an hourlong interview with The New York Times, he choked up, noting that he nearly missed his brother's wedding this summer and spent his birthday holed up in Tesla's offices as the company raced to meet elusive production targets on a crucial new model.

Asked if the exhaustion was taking a toll on his physical health, Mr. Musk answered: "It's not been great, actually. I've had friends come by who are really concerned."

The events set in motion by Mr. Musk's tweet have ignited a federal investigation and have angered some board members, according to people familiar with the matter. Efforts are underway to find a No. 2 executive to help take some of the pressure off Mr. Musk, people briefed on the search said. And some board members have expressed concern not only about Mr. Musk's workload but also about his use of Ambien, two people familiar with the board said.

For two decades, Mr. Musk has been one of Silicon Valley's most brash and ambitious entrepreneurs, helping to found several influential technology companies. He has often carried himself with bravado, dismissing critics and relishing the spotlight that has come with his success and fortune. But in the interview, he demonstrated an extraordinary level of self-reflection and vulnerability, acknowledging that his myriad executive responsibilities are taking a steep personal toll.

In the interview, Mr. Musk provided a detailed timeline of the events leading up to the Twitter postings on Aug. 7 in which he said he was considering taking the company private at $420 a share. He asserted that he had "funding secured" for such a deal — a transaction likely to be worth well over $10 billion.

That morning, Mr. Musk woke up at home with his girlfriend, the musician known as Grimes, and had an early workout. Then he got in a Tesla Model S and drove himself to the airport. En route, Mr. Musk typed his fateful message.

Looks like his ambition caused him to do too much. Will Grimes stay with him? Doubtful. Maybe he should have stayed with his original wife.

RE: Elon Musk is falling apart

I think Tesla is the next Theranos. I think it will fail within the next 6 to 12 months and Musk will go the same way as Delorean. I suspect the reason why SpaceX is doing so well in comparison to Tesla is that Musk is not involved in the day to day operation of SpaceX. The rocket engineers have been given pretty much free rein to do what they need to do to develop low cost space transportation and are doing so by doing essentially what my friends and I came up with as the proper strategy over 20 years ago. That is to stick with conventional rocket technology and focus on making the first stage reusable, followed by the second stage, all the while improving the manufacturing technology in making the rockets. The other reason why I think SpaceX is doing so well compared to Tesla is because, paradoxically, I think it easier to develop and manufacture reusable rockets than it is to make a reliable car as consumer product and manufacture millions of them to exacting standards. Making rockets from a manufacturing standpoint can possibly be easier because you're making only one or two of them at a time and are not trying to get the per unit cost (cost of good sold) down to a fine level. From a cost standpoint, there is way more "slop" to play with.

Remember that Musk, personally, is a marketing guy with some IT skills. His claim to fame was being one of the principles in Paypal where he was the marketing guy. Peter Thiel was the technical brain behind paypal and was their overall "brain" behind the outfit. Musk is a bright guy. But he does not personally have the engineering and technical experience or knowledge to understand the issues and processes of making an electric car or developing a reusable rocket. If Musk is falling apart its because he is way in over his head with his various companies, especially Tesla.

SpaceX works because of massive government subsidies.

To my knowledge, most of the obama era subsidies on Tesla cars are no longer out there.

In addition, the company has sucked up massive amounts of investment dollars but they still haven’t turned a profit. The vehicle suffers from several serious flaws.
1. They’re expensive to produce and purchase.
2. When they shit the bed, they do it big time.
3. When Tesla decides a model is obsolete, they essentially end all factory support for it. Of course the dealers want no part either.
4. 130-160 miles is still their range between charging and most places still don’t have the infrastructure to recharge them.
5. Even their new “entry” level model 3 is expensive, and Compared to a comparable gas vehicle, the difference is well over $10K. It would take years to recoup the extra price in fuel savings, and that assumes your electricity for charging is free, and that a Tesla can stay in service for over a decade(which is largely unknown at this point.)
6. Finally, every carmaker out there is working 24/7 to develop their own electric vehicles. Once they get it figured out, Tesla has no chance.

It sounds like she's pissed that she was flown all that way to fuck Musk and got stood up.

All the launch vehicle providers get government subsidies so that is neither here or there. What SpaceX gets is not nearly as much as the others. The difference is that SpaceX is more innovative. SpaceX is really picky as to they hire and they push their engineers hard. I have several friends who have worked there and the told don't go work there unless you like working long hours and on weekends and do not want or need a personal life.

Black women are the dark angels. You are taking a typical Black woman rage-out to literally. Hear me out. Black women, yes, they are the first to cry and croak about "Muh racism" but they will do the dirty work and unearth the dirty stuff nobody wants. It took a dumb white girl to underestimate that Ms. Banks still has some hood in her, to waste her time and cause to more or less confirm all the impression we had of Musk all this damn time (goofy, weak, drugs, only surviving off hot air hype and Govt $).

Ms. Banks was fair to call out the suspicions that she was lured to LA for some drug infused sex party. It is always some token shit with these sexual arrangments with many times Black women being viewed as a gelato flavour to "try out". She was quick to call them on their shi

To add to this, Black women, the dark angels, are doing good work to burn down the edifice of Feminism as we speak. The Black woman's continued rage about "intersectionalism" is causing too much grief for the coddled white and Jewish woman who birthed feminism, now opening of the floodgates now to trannies and other female-identified weirdos are causing the movement to burn and self-combust.

It is true that SpaceX is getting the government launch market. That's because it is the largest percentage of the total launch market. All of the traditional players (Boeing, Lockmart) are doing the same. The difference is that SpaceX is actually innovating whereas everyone else is not. SpaceX is the poster boy for how the whole government/private partnership deal is supposed to work in the eyes of its advocates.

Generally I do not believe in government subsidies or the government/private partnership thing. However, SpaceX is the one single example where it actually seems to be working as advertised. So, I'm willing to cut it slack.

Are we believing a woman that fucking Complex magazine has noted has brought more fame to herself from "public feuds" than her music?

She's probably on to something about him being on the spectrum, but at the end of the day he's still far more successful than she is, and has already made a greater contribution towards humanity than she will.

This bitch is not only crazy, but very clearly jealous.

More importantly: WB.

The only time I ever hear about this Azaleia Banks chick is when she acts like a cunt. I've never even heard one of her songs. She's probably a poor man's version of Rihanna.

She also sounds like a RVF member with the whole alpha/beta categorizing. Clearly some women are clued into that lingo.

This is the only bulletpoint that's off. There was a report lately that there's a supercharger station within 150 miles of something like 99% of the population of the US. That's the one thing they've done right (at great expense, of course).

I want to second this.

RVF is what Elon needs. We can hook him back into his dragon energy.

1. stop the drugs.
2. stop the cheap ass women, they are draining your vital semen energy but not giving anything back.
3. call John McAfee--that's a guy who'll understand your life
