Look, having dark side -- my uncle was a great lord of the Sith so powerful and so wise, Darth Plagueis 'The Wise' of MIT; good midichlorians, very good midichlorians, OK, very wise, the Naboo School of Finance, very powerful, very wise - if you're a Sith Lord, if I were a Jedi Master, if, like OK, if I ran as a Jedi Master, they would say I am one of the wisest people in the galaxy - It's true! - but when you are a Sith Lord they try - oh, do they do a number - that's why I always start off: went to Naboo, was a good senator, went there, went there, did this, built an Empire - you know I have to give my credentials all the time, because we are a little scarred and deformed - but you look at the dark side, the thing that really bothers me - it would have been so easy, and it's not as important as these lives of the ones he cared about are - The dark side is powerful, some consider it to be unnatural; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power, and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? - but when you look at what's going on with the two Sith - now it used to be one, now it's two - it's getting out of hand, and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven't figured out that the women and the children too are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it's gonna take them another millennia - but the Jedi are great negotiators, his apprentice was a great negotiator, so, and they, they just killed us, they just killed us in our sleep.

If we see that Germany is winning the war, we ought to help Russia; and if that Russia is winning, we ought to help Germany, and in that way let them kill as many as possible.

-- Harry S. Truman

It is astonishing to me how we can allow this country to have a continued military presence on our continent.

We should make a compilation of Musk being an utter asshole so that this mindless worshipping finally stops.

I'll start, anyone can add examples:

I'm not sure how to pack this into a picture, but he's also one of the largest donors for a House Republican PAC

And those aren't even moderates. Kevin McCarthy for example is a climate change denier: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/nov/17/climate-change-denial-scepticism-republicans-congress

Musk also donates to Democrats (he donates far more to Republicans though), but his donations to Democrats are to a large part to right-wing democrats (Diane Feinstein and Bill Nelson among them) to assist in driving the party to the right. Bill Nelson is the same guy who described single-payer as being "too good of a deal for the American people".

Let me add another one:

I attended a dinner discussion a few years ago in Atherton featuring Larry Page and Elon Musk. A small group of Silicon Valley technology leaders attended. I felt out of my depth, but forced myself to ask a question that might elicit patronizing glances. It did.

What would it take to get visionaries like them deeply engaged in the real problems of humanity — poverty, mass incarceration, violence against women — that, because of market failures, don’t offer much money to their solvers?

I was expecting them to discuss market-based solutions, prizes like those the X Prize Foundation and Innocentive are putting up. Prize models have worked well to divert private capital to public solutions, like vaccines.

Instead, Elon looked at me with a grin and said, “I’m not sure poverty is such a problem. I grew up in South Africa and now live near Beverly Hills. The housewives in my neighborhood are certainly more miserable than the kids I saw playing in the townships growing up. It’s relative.”

I was so shaken by the absurdity and apocryphal nature of his comments that I didn’t respond for a few minutes. To his credit, Larry did, laughing and pointing out how wrong his friend was. Study after study has demonstrated, through methods like cortisol testing and massive surveys, that suffering from poverty is only relative above a certain baseline — below this baseline, poverty absolutely causes human suffering. Denying this basic fact is denying the human worth of several billion people on our planet.

Hey dude, you should include when Musk stole some guy's art for one of his products and then said "it would be lame if you sued" seeing as he was apparently giving the artist more exposure. He's psychotic

Posted this on the main thread but I'll post it here as well.

Elon Musk used a common racist tactic for identifying persons of jewish heritage in this post about meeting Justin Roiland. He uses the triple parenthesis around Morty's name.

On that: This was the official Rick and Morty twitter page when he posted the picture. I did a bit of searching and it seems like around that time, many people started posting triple parentheses on Twitter to make fun of Nazis. Seeing as he probably just copied it from the Twitter page of the show without ill intention, I'll not include that one.

Only 30% of eligible Americans voted against him. The other 70% voted for him or not at all.

He does.

70% of Americans voted for him or didn't bother to vote against him. If you can't be bothered to vote against such an idiot, you deserve him all the same.

The US doesn't extradite their citizens to other countries, and I highly doubt Russia would do it either. I don't see what asking for extradition would accomplish to be honest.

French people are not interested in that "cultural exception" thing. That's why they subscribe to netflix.

Well a lot of American media is literally propaganda. The Pentagon has a direct influence on a movie's script and e.g. how American wars a portrayed if a movie uses US military equipment.

Brexit was also heavily funded by American billionaires. It's incredible how much money went into the Leave campaign from outside sources without law enforcement batting an eye.

No, that's direct democracy. The UK and most other democracies are representative democracies. Because despite what some people believe, letting the general population directly run a country would be a disaster.

I think this rule is unfair to the other regions because if we are going to get to the point where NA LCS is able to have full import teams, the region system that Riot created is stupid. Just make a world league like overwatch at that point, no point in having regions.

see more

Yeah I don't understand where Riot was going with this rule. The US is known for people being able to "buy" their way to a green card. The same is not true for a place like Europe or China. Changing the rule from "x years played in the league" to "official recidency" has lead to a scenario in which the leagues now have completely different durations it takes for someone to not take up an import slot.

More important part for him is the Green Card instead of not just being an import slot. He's earned it.

Does he have any intention to stay in the US after his career is over? Not sure why he would drop his French/Korean citizenship, the green card thing may simply be a way to circumvent import status.

Musk did it to help, and the British divers asked him to keep developing it. https://mobile.twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1016684366083190785?s=19

Of course they told him to continue, it's not like it actually reduced the chance of saving them. But this correspondence is from before they knew that the sub was designed in a way that makes it completely useless for the rescue mission. Which is why they are now saying it was just a PR stunt.

At this point I doubt it is organic. Tesla alone spends over $50 million per year on ads and marketing, but have you ever actually seen a Tesla ad? Nope.
