Funny he thinks it's blackmail. Corporations make decision all the time where they want dollars to go. There is no blackmail here, just a stupid muppet high on his own feces.


What's really funny is Tesla stock has been climbing while all the Tesla-stans are getting super giddy about the Cybertruck launch. The smart money is that this thing is a dog, and the announcement is going to be hella disappointing with high prices, lower range, low production numbers, talk of challenges, and a whole bunch of broken promises. So add this speech in, and it's gonna be a bloodbath tomorrow. If I was in to shorting stocks, this would be easy money.

Did I miss something with Musk and Ketamine? I know everyone said he was big into cocaine, is this a new revelation?

EDIT: Yep googled it. This makes soooo much sense now. My friend is far right/QAnon and he talked about wanting to get K (total non drug user) and it shocked me. Now I get it.

I ####ed around with ketamine a couple of years ago. Worked wonders for my ptsd, but I stopped doing it once I realized it was turning me into an egotistical #######.

I guess he takes the choice to not support the Xitter/Musk cesspool as blackmail somehow..

I'm sure the CEO is enjoying watching her career do the melting face thing from Raiders of the Lost Ark.


"Musk, at the DealBook Summit, admitted, 'I should have not replied to that particular person… I essentially handed a loaded gun to those who hate me,' calling it one of the 'most foolish' posts he’s ever made on X/Twitter.

...

Later in the session, which ran for about an hour and a half, Musk said he stopped using TikTok after he felt uncomfortable because the AI algorithm was 'probing my mind.' He added as an aside that TikTok is 'rife' with antisemitic content.

Sorkin also asked if X/Twitter was in fact throttling the loading time of links to the New York Times' website; the slowdown also affected Meta sites and those of other news orgs. Musk appeared to interpret the question as relating to X’s algorithmic prioritization of posts, and he responded that businesses must buy a subscription, starting at $1,000 per month, or else their posts will not be 'recommended.' Sorkin asked what that suggested for 'free speech,' to which Musk said, 'Free speech isn’t free, it’s going to cost a little bit.'"

Lol...

I've been saying it for a while now.

The perfect ending to this Musk BS would be him falling into a active volcano.

Rapid unscheduled disassembly would be my preference.

Yeah, I wasn't using it that frequently. Like one or twice a month and at a safe dose.

I'm now getting weird Calvinist versus Baptist predetermination fights on my twitter account to add a religious bent to the shockingly old school racist crap that started turning up about 4 months ago, I mean straight up 1930's southern US level racism, on the other hand the porn seems to have all but disappeared, that said every single post will be liked by some woman with an Only Fans account, watching the site implode is fascinating actually

Yep. Also, I am stunned that another one of Elon's promises (price of Cybertruck) turned out to be complete B.S.

The launch of Tesla's (TSLA) long-awaited Cybertruck wasn't enough to boost the shares of the electric vehicle maker on Friday.

The truck's price came in significantly higher than many had expected with the lowest-grade model starting at $60,990 before any electric vehicle-related tax benefits. In 2019, Tesla had said it expected to price the truck at $39,900.

For investors, questions still loom about the demand for Cybertrucks, which can cost nearly $100,000 for the top model.

"There were a lot of folks in 2019 that wanted this product," Tom Narayan, lead equity analyst for global autos at RBC Capital Markets, told Yahoo Finance live on Thursday. "I'd expect the conversion rate [from reservations] to be about 20%."

The stock fell more than 2% in morning trading on Friday.

I read that they also had to downgrade the tow rating and max payload from earlier claims.

I guess Elon held a vote on Xitter to see if Alex Jones should come back, and the cesspool voted in the affirmative. Nice community you've got going there, Elon.

This is after he said he wanted Jones gone because of the Sandy Hook stuff - Musk said he had a child of his die in his arms, and there was no place for that on twitter. I guess there is on X. And, the mother of that child is saying the child died in her arms, not Elon's.
