All we need is for Musk to tweet back in Trumpian style something like "Lot of people are saying Laurence & Andrew Paul Wachowskis last two Matrix films were terrible, seem to have struck lucky on the first one. SAD!"
How could humanity exist without Twitter during the dark ages before 2010 beyond me.
So what do you guys think of Elon pushing hard for economy reopening, and still Tweeting uncontrollably?
Can you even choose between ppl.'s right to work and earn money, and the elderly's right to be protected by the system, when both seemingly cannot happen at the same time during Covid?
- Is he totally in the wrong and we need to keep everything closed till vaccine (2021, 2022? never) and just STFU, count your billions silently and let professionals handle this thing?
- Is controlled, industrial production reopening a good first step, followed by other lifts while social distancing still applied, especially for the elderly?
- should everyone return to their business and let GDP producing populace produce GDP rather than defaulting on rents, mortgages, loans, healthy food, children's or own education, insurance, leasing and other stuff?
Yeah an actual, sane read, but fuck me mate, easy with them likes! I came here and saw 20 of them, there's so much happiness I can handle!If you look into the opening and how Tesla has handled it, then I think every sane person can safely say that it's a good thing.
I may un-Elonify this as expand into an all-EV/Space thread?BigBone putting in work on this thread.
Wesshaw1985 spamming his usual worthless conspiracy garbage, of course.

Thx for the link! Oh yeah, there's a lot of PR around Virgin Galactic, only fitting for a media darling / larger than life boss figure that is Sir Richie Rich. But I believe he's dead serious about space and been investing heavy resources into space tourism and small sat launches. It's just that space is hard. Very, very hard, and besides Elon being intelligent enough to put far more intelligent ppl. into key SpaceX positions, it took somewhat luck and US monetary assistance to break out with their Falcon 1 then 9. Virgin needs such a luck / breakthrough.@BigBone There's some trending news about Virgin Galatic / Richard Bransons rocket & space flight.
Will Whitehorn is president of the trade body UKSpace. He also initiated early design work on an air-launched rocket system when working for Sir Richard in the late 2000s.
"Everyone's attention right now is on the astronauts launching this week on a SpaceX rocket, but from an industrial perspective [Virgin Orbit] is just as significant," he told BBC News.
Now everything I've read about VG to date suggests thats its big on PR and low on doing anything, in essence a bit of a joke. Wondered if you had any comment to make and if this has any relevant/where this sits vis a vis SpaceX.
