Elon Musk is annoying me more and more. I'm starting to wonder if there's anything genuine about him. The Tesla working conditions sound horrific, but he doesn't care. All he wants is production and money. The 'mini submarine' was never going to work and he never tried to make it work, it was just a publicity stunt. And now apparently he's donating to republicans to help keep them in control of the house, despite calling himself a socialist.

I'm definitely a fan of Elon Musk's accomplishments and his companies but yeah my opinion on him as a person is much more grey. I'm still not sure which parts of his journalist rating concept were real and which were satire. Deciding by popularity was a horrible and dangerous idea.

I don't know that much about Tesla and it does sound like they really do have bad working conditions, but it's hard to find the truth since so many people hate Elon Musk/the companies. SpaceX gets yelled at for having bad working conditions too yet in that case the stories have mostly been proven false.

The mini submarine was definitely not just a publicity stunt though. That'd make no sense. Instead it was probably Elon Musk genuinely wanting to help save the kids and wanting credit for helping to save the kids. That'd match how Robert Zubrin described Elon in an interview I listened to a few months back.

Yes but according to some of the people there Elon didn't communicate through any of the proper channels to try and help. He only did it through social media or more publicly, and according to one of the diving experts there his submarine idea was never ever going to work. Just seems like a publicity stunt to me.

I didn't like how "PRy" it seemed at first but actually making it proves otherwise imo. Building the sub would have cost a lot of money and would just not be worth the low amount of publicity. It's not like this is a company that needs all the attention it can get. It's really only useful from a PR point if the sub is used and included in every single broadcast about the event.



Also in unrelated news!!!!!!
