I'm on board... wish it could be with more. Maybe soon...

I'm not much for big business in general so for me to like a guy like this is rare. However this guy seems alright, I have listened to stuff on NPR about him and watched a 20/20 or 60 minutes special on him and I like his story. His vision well we will see. I could give a sh#t about going to space,

I agree he will far surpass Steve Jobs with regard to thinking outside the box and changing the world we live in. That is if he does not go bankrupt in the process. I think it is quite possible he does as he has the type personality to just go for it as he really believes in himself and his ideas. Weather his impact end up being a positive or negative has yet to been seen. Imop his visions and intent could lead to some very scary sh#t..

Only time will tell.

Humans just can't seem to ever be satisfied leaving well enough alone..

^^^ Sanskara,

What does this mean...
They is if he goes not go bankrupt in the process? As for if how he changes the wood will prove to be a good or bad thing is yet yo be seen imop..

Please to edit for clarity. Many thanks 'cause I dig what you're thrown down a goodly bit of the time.

--Sanskara edit: Thanks for mending the autocorrect-jibberish!

I can't spell and I use an iPad with the auto correct function on. I should just turn it off.

Moose you ever read The China Study. I think you might like it. I suggest you read it as the same authors most currant publication "Whole" I am almost positive you will enjoy. It just works to read The China Study first.

Even if you don't buy everything in either of the books they both offer a perspective on health and nutrition that can not be ignored.

Donini: Spacefaring will have to solve the speed issue if we ever to get out of this solar system. The next star, Alpha Centuria, is four light years away......since light travels at 186,000 miles a second, that's quite a haul.

Yes, intra-/inter-galactic spacefaring is essentially time travel and if you can't manage that you're not really going to be going anywhere. Hell, the Voyagers have just left the Solar System which basically means they've arrived at the nearest bus stop.

The other issue is the fact that humans are composite beings whose cellular makeup is only about 10% human; the other 90% are various microbes and fungi - i.e. we are wholly a product of, and bound to, this planet's ecology - you can't take it with you and you can't recreate it once you arrive somewhere else.

Think of it this way. Go to the store and buy enough food to really load your refrigerator up. Then unplug it and come back in say, forty days, and see what you've got cooking. That's pretty much exactly how your average 'starship' is going to fare on a short forty year jaunt. Hell, just a trip to Mars and back is likely to make the inside of your climbing shoes on a hot day seem like the latest perfume out of Paris by comparison.

Sanskara - What exactly is the difference between Musks vision and intent and that of the guys that invented the ipad you typed that on?

Let's see, re-usable rockets, electric cars, and solar powered homes. Yeah, that's some terrifying sh#t.

Jump starting a couple of new industries is pretty cool. But when you keep at it and create a couple more you are just hot-dogging, dude is a major over achiever.

Capacitors do have some important advantages; they charge up quickly and don't wear out.

And don't wear out is not true .....

Apr 25, 2014 - 03:48pm PT

I'm well aware of the properties of capacitors as I've been using them and working with them for a long time.

We have some LED flashlights here where they fully charge up in 15 to 20 seconds.

These are expensive units,

After 3 years the capacitors no longer hold a charge.

The capacitors in the electric vehicle here are shot too.

All the capacitors in all of DNC's electric vehicles are shot also.

Making a claim "don't wear out" is not true.

Talk to the memory guys at micron. One good friend works there and he'll tell you all about capacitors wearing out.

Memory chips change state and hold bits by capacitors.

There is nothing in the material world manufactured that "don't wear out" .....

what's he gonna say?!?!?! what's he gonna SAY???!!!!!!11169

after hours trading is so volatile right now!

Adjusted earnings per share came in at $0.12 per share, which was higher than the $0.07 expected by analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.

However, the stock is down by around 6% in after-hours trading.

$50 Million in losses.

TGT - I need one of those to crush my beer cans before I put them in recycling. Crushing them by hand is too much work.

Thank God that WVB was not manufactured in the material world . . . . . . . .

Elon Musk is not stoopid enough to be President.

And, he's a wetback, and is ineligible to be President.

Just be satisfied that you have those stoopid Iron Man movies to jack off to.

What's that musky smell feeding at the public through-why it's Elon.

A first rate crook yes, but a visionary boldly going where few others have traveled. We need more of these types to advance the species rather than the garden variety criminals only in it for themselves.
