He definitely says a lot of stuff that deserves to be on r/iamverysmart, but I really doubt that story is true. He may act like a weenie now and again over technicalities, but that story sounds like made up bullshit.

Honestly OP it's not too far from the truth.

I saw NDT at a grocery store in Los Angeles about a year ago. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

This question comes up all the time on Reddit. While I think it would be a good idea, I think that a lot of kids wouldn't pay attention. I think that a class about Excel would be super useful. Pivot tables are incredible.

No. There’s recordings of Trump in interviews in the 2000s saying how monumentally stupid this was even when it wasn’t necessarily a popular time to say so in our country.

Have you seen Trump on Howard Stern?

Like anything, Trump gives mixed answers.

I do believe this, but why tf doesn't TMZ link to the documents? Civil suits get filed everyday. If I was trying to write about hip-hop, I would have a subscription to the court data base and run rapper's names through (it exists in my state). It'd be a great way to break a story.

What's wrong with doing what the majority of people want? Isn't that the true purpose of a democracy?

Why should the people of bumfuck nowhere have more power than the most populated cities?

For some reason the audio won't play. I'll try to see if I can find it elsewhere but I still won't believe it's real until I can get video to match it. There's a new AI technology that can scan audio and video recordings of your voice and face, clip selected segments together mimicking your speech patterns which can be used to create fake audio and video recordings of people saying things they didn't say.

That's the worst you can find? Let me introduce you to Seth Rich and how Fox politicized his death.

Edit: Since I really don't want to spend the rest of my afternoon responding let me point out that Roger Ailes created Fox specifically to politicize news while CNN still mostly mirrors the pre "fairness in broadcasting" journalistic standards that most of the MSM still follow. Likely why just eyeballing their wiki controversy pages Fox has considerably more than the old CNN. Modern yellow journalism was embraced by Fox and spread out from there, and will won't be curbed unless they are addressed as well as the rest.

No, they are not. They sound like whiny bitter crybabies, and I say that as someone who deplores Trump.

The worst is probably Charles Blow.

Thank god for The Washington Post, who can remain professional.

PurpleVilla -4 points

Charles Blow is an op-ed columnist. Read his bio. If you didn’t know, ed is short for editorial. He’s very different from NYT reporters like Matt Apuzzo and Maggie Haberman.

Right, because reporters at one of the most prestigious newspapers are "glorified bloggers"

I am sorry, could you elaborate further please?

Musk is a businessman, he's not Iron Man. The cult of Musk on Reddit is ridiculous.

SummerPop 0 points

Ah, I detect a tone of frustration here. I think I understand. Please allow me to explain.

First off, 'Elon Musk is not Iron Man, he is a business man.' I have never said that he is Iron Man. I merely said he is going to become Iron Man. There are several reasons why I made such a remark.

The space rockets flying back down to the landing spot and landing without blowing up calls to my mind, the scenes where Iron Man calls in his suit/s, they detect the sensors on his body, zooms in and covers his body to protect him.

Elon Musk has a drive for improving technology, has access to space flight, and is wealthy to boot; I honestly think that he could be the closest any man has come, to achieve what Iron Man did.

From the above points that I mentioned, you could say that I am an idiot for bringing fantasy into reality; how can mankind ever build an AI like Jarvis? Well, imagine what bringing Bill Gates and Elon Musk together would do. Or you can also express your displeasure by grunting, smashing a tree up and going back into your cave. Whichever you prefer.

I would like to clarify, though, that I have never heard of 'the cult of Musk', never intended to worship said Musk, and think that you need to go back to your daycare.

Sincerely speaking, if you are sick of all the posts showing videos of Elon's space boosters and rockets taking off, maybe you need to take a break from reddit. I am assuming that these are the heart of your resentment.

There is a reason why people are so hyped about Elon Musk. He has used his wealth, to reduce the cost of achieving space flight. A technology that no other man or country, wealthy or powerful, has even bothered to try to attain for humanity, instead, preferring to focus on expanding their wealth and influence.

TL;DR Achievement of one Man, adds Salt to another.

P.S. Sauciness begets sauciness. I really hope you find happiness in your life soon.

PurpleVilla 1 point

Okay I’m actually happy with my life, but I’m just tired of Reddit looking for some nerd Messaish. Thanks for the assumptions though, I think they say more about you.

Ok reddit communist #36923491

You know what the cure for communist fantasy is? Getting off your ass and making something of yourself, then there comes a day of ultimate realization. The day you realize you pay more in taxes in one year than you used to make at your first job. All to subsidize losers who want to sit at home and cry about capitalism, or just be losers in general.

You could be working for Elon Musk if you made something of yourself. Or maybe even be him if you had the drive and brilliance, which 99.9% of people don't.

Meanwhile you look up to some retard like Logan Paul? Who makes millions and employs no one, contributes absolutely nothing to society. Ok then. You keep trying it your way.

I can tell you this. It would absolutely fucking pain me to live in a world where Elon Musk was forced to make the same money you do to stay home and bitch about him while watching Logan Paul shock rats and be a general retard.

Wow, this is an aggressive response. The wild musk lover is triggered.

[deleted] 0 points

That's not aggressive, aggressive involves swearing and name calling. It's probable that too much soy makes the average reddit communist very timid and prone to thinking that things are aggressive when they are not.

I mainly hate the cult of personality. Reddit has been sucked into believing that he is Iron Man incarnate and inventing never seen before products (rockets, electric cars, PayPal etc.). Musk is a businessman who wants to make a profit, he's not the savior of the human race.

I also hate the hypocrisy around Reddit, billionaires, and corporations. They ignore the fact that he treats his workers like shit and won't let them unionize because it wouldn't fit into their narrative of Musk.

That's about it, just upset that Reddit won't get Musk's dick out of their mouth. He's a businessman, not a scientist.

*260 per week, at the end of last quarter. Not total. They made about ten times that number total(~2450)

Look i'm not saying that Tesla aren't having production issues, they clearly are, but you are being misleading there.

There's a big difference between missing a deadline and not delivering at all. See Falcon Heavy as an example. It's definitely behind schedule, but SpaceX did end up delivering, and at a lower cost and higher performance than initially promised. And it's development was in most part funded by the company's revenue, not loans or government grants.

Tesla had similar issues in 2012 with Model S, yet have since got production up to over 50,000 per year. I'd also point out that they make a profit of around $25k per Model S sold, the company overall doesn't make a profit because all that money has gone into Gigafactory, Model 3, and Supercharger expansion.

Can you provide a link to that first assertion?

PurpleVilla 1 point

From the same article:

Despite analysts' repeated questions on the Wednesday earnings call, Tesla executives did not provide hard numbers, including a current weekly production rate of Model 3s.

So this number is self-reported?

So why do people travel from all over the world to the US for premium healthcare services?

We don't want to emulate anyone else.

This is a FREE country. We don't believe in confiscating money from people to give services to other people. You are free to thrive or to fail.

PurpleVilla 3 points

I believe that people come here for specialized services and treatments. The problem is the US has lackluster primary care.

This is a FREE country.

This is a really weak argument and seems like you’re just hiding behind “patriotism.”
