    So in a thread where TRG talked shit about Musk since 2016, xyz now thinks the shit talking is because Musk recently kinda went conservatard? Do we need to explain calendars to him?

    I really canít wrap my head around the demise of Twitter/X.

    Iíve written earlier in the thread that I donít ďgetĒ Twitter, never used it, and we had some good responses about its value during ďpeak Twitter.Ē

    So, Musk valued it so much that he by most accounts overpaid in cash and took it private. I realize he has money to burn, but he probably has lost 25 to 30% of his net worth and worst of all, as someone who really valued this platform, heís run it into the ground truly compromising whatever value it had.

    I canít believe that he saw this coming. I canít believe itís intentional. It seems to be such an idiotic mistake. Anyone who has tried to moderate any kind of online discussion knows itís terribly difficult. How did the wealthiest man on the planet fuck this up so badly?

    Elon does not accept any responsibility for the demise of Twitter. Listen to the Dealbook interview: he blames the advertisers for pulling out and says that "Earth" will judge them for killing Twitter.

    It's actually a good listen after he stops talking about Twitter. On that topic he's clearly lost his mind, but flashes of the genius that helped make SpaceX and Tesla household names appear later on. Elon needs a Pepper Potts to intervene when he tries to use his phone.

    Ill break it down again. musk is worth somewhere between 200-250 billion. He paid 44billion for twitter (not cash, partially financed, but lets say cash).

    Now lets say he runs twitter into the ground and loses all 44billion. He still has around 200 billion.

    Now lets say that his antics make him a social and business pariah to the extent that he loses 99.9% of his wealth. he still has 200 million.


    The level of fuckyou money he has is difficult to comprehend and allows him to do and say the things he does. So he doesnt operate by the same logic normal people do- he operates in a mostly consequence free space where everyone usually says "yes" and anyone who doesnt is the enemy.

    In his mind, he doesnt understand why the people of earth dont revere him like DPRK reveres kim jong un. I dont think anyone would be surprised if he takes a bond-villain turn.

    The concept of "never fuck crazy" would seem to apply here, and yet ....... how many progeny does Elbert have?? And do they have any kind of sane relationship with him??

    I usually argue for 90%, but with recent interviews I'm inclined to go for 99%.

    See signature if any questions.

    This shit is the reason why Trump won: most of his fans didn’t realize he actually was saying ‘Fuck You’ to THEM.

    Pretty much all fuck you money comes from the masses, whether they pay taxes or not. I donít quite understand the social psychology that makes us tolerate that, or even admire it.

    Yeah, it's nothing unique. He is high on his own supply and infuriated that others don't worship the ground he walks on. He's mad he's not beloved and thinks he's edgy and cool.

    Like many rich people, he largely believes he's infallible and actively overcorrects on any perceived insults/slights as he's so damn insecure. If you looked closely, this is who he always was, it's just the edges were blunted by those around him (such gf/wife, other management etc.). As this has gone on, he's clearly gone to the "yes men only" plan and all of them are making bank smiling and nodding at his bullshit.
