He may be the next Edison, but he wants to be Tesla.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson says leave him be?

Hell, its just Neil DeGrasse not like its MIKE Tyson.


But wasn't Edison more of an invention broker than an actual inventor?
Didn't most of his patents come from his employees (including Tesla early on)?

I love and respect Neil, but if Mike told me to leave him alone I'd be more impressed.
And very worried.

He is right, leave the guy alone on his personal life.

You have no personal life once you go public.

This is a basic rule politicians and business people understand. Why the sentimentality over a private someone who decides to go personality retail, Frumy ?

I’d be a lot more inclined to cut him some slack if he showed any class concerning the British caver who he is obsessed about.

It's more than just the caver, he tends to not be a very nice person.

But up till now, he has been a good salesman.

In this world sadly salesmanship is what it's all about.

Idiots wrote that Washington post article. I have to hold my thumb down on my summon back button to make my car move. If I intend to drive it into something it will do as told. If it is about to hit something I have to lift my thumb from my phone or it will continue to follow my command.



Summon is in beta. It moves so slowly anyway that you really have to be a fool to do what this person did.


Only an idiot would fall for that misleading article.

I could literally intentionally drive my car off a cliff by holding the summon button down and Washington post would write something that all the panting little boys of this forum would go crazy enough about to make stock decisions over - because it is a Tesla. Ultimate ignorance.


What happened to critical thinking? You lap up whatever crap you are spoon-fed like infants and then regurgitate it here. It makes somebody look bad, anybody, and adds nothing to the conversation.

Whatever, nuthugger. He's a pompous little clown, wildly out of his depth, and will get his comeuppance and soon.

Musk is the new Steve Jobs. Brilliant, showman, flawed, a little unhinged.

Like politics I don't see why so many come down on one side or the other. They either love him and don't see the flaws or hate him and don't give him credit.

You can't look at what this guy has accomplished and not be impressed. Dude's company built an orbital rocket booster that lands! Just that accomplishment is enough to make history.

But he overpromises, and says some kooky things, and plenty of other things you can read about.

That'll never happen and he takes the 15 million down payment on the 'ticket' and burns it somewhere else.

Musk is an "idea guy". They never make good accountants or businessmen. His manic nature and the fact our economic markets are a flaming casino fueled with free money has thusly enabled his fantasies.

Musks still move the world forward a little bit. There will be innovation borne from his mania that will endure.

But I won't be caught holding the bag!

Ripley, if you aren’t good at it, best keep quiet rather than spray and remove all doubt. And when I address the 'panting little boys', why do you feel the need to respond?
