~ Elon's Dogehouse - Starship SN10 sticks the landing! Stands unscratched! (then gently blows to smithereens) ~

Played Cyberpunk'77 too much and had this dream of SpaceX launching SN10 w/o FAA licence and losing control of it, spinning like crazy, header tank vibrating oddly and craft flying over future LA looking to land on Venice Beach and shit like that but SpaceX gaining back control and hovering it toward unknown location (cunting alarm vent off, never gonna find out if it successfully landed!)

A week or so back I thought about sticking some small throwaway cash on simply for its meme value and didn't... I need to get a crypto currency trading account set up just for these opportune random gambles. Ride some of these bull runs and try to jump off before the bears chase them all away again.

I really don't know what to make of Teslas play. It's only like 0.25% of all BTC in circulation but it's a hell of chunk of change to invest in something as volatile as cryptocurrency.
Elon's all about decentralization: media (Twitter and more unregulated channels), energy (virtual power plants, Tesla Energy, Autobidder), democracy (direct one on Mars), economy and distribution of means (retail investors, no SEC or regulated dollar etc.), so Bitcoin fits. Guess you're gonna need Bitcoin reserve if you're gonna trade with it (selling Teslas, energy products in Bitcoin, reimbursement etc., perhaps paying supply chain with it?) and of course you skip some of the fees that would go to the banking system to either increase profit margin = extra cash for R&D or sell Teslas cheaper.

Elon's also extremely smart not just recognizing areas to disrupt and aligning them with common goals (sustainability, making humanity multiplanetary), he mirrors sentiments of 15-40 yo ppl. who'd rather skip the world burning down per global warming or politics, who'd rather play Cyberpunk in their self-driving console than drive the damn thing, who'd like to arbitrage the energy they generate and use and have control over their social communications and opinion, economics (crypto, retail stock) and/or just excited about the multi-planetary cyber-future that's coming whether you like it or not.

Someone said that in Elon's Robinhood CEO interview HE sounded like the passionate 20yo asking straight, tough questions and the young CEO sounded like the rugged 50yo institutional cunt carefully wording his thoughts. Do you realize how many young ppl. started to save for a Tesla or bought shares just because of that? Also, ya realize how many individuals have massive amount of cash in Bitcoin? And now they can (in near future) actually do something with other than converting it into institutional currency, like... buy a Tesla or a Powerwall. $1,5 billion is a small price to play for having 1,5 billion ppl. who think you're on the right path for humanity, on multiple levels.

Next weeks should be entertaining: Elon keeps tweeting about crypto and SEC might look into this since Musk hyping Bitcoin (as his personal opinion) and Tesla buying $1,5B worth happened roughly at the same time. While I expect Elon to be cautious ('stock price too high IMO' was legal because of 'IMO'), SEC could see it otherwise. Of course this is the same Securities Exchange Commission that says its perfectly fine to take a short position on 300% of stock in float, then defame shorted company on TV, then cash in on your stock market manipulation. Either way, you don't want to be on the wrong side of Elon, no matter who or what you are.


:lol:

Lets not overlook things happening outside of crypto: SpaceX is opening Starlink to the public while rural ISPs and Amazon fight to block it for obvious reasons. A few sats went to polar orbit with laser links for in-space relay but for mass laser connection we'll have to wait till 2022. Starlink WILL IPO at some point. Also, SpaceX was awarded to deliver the Lunar Gateway space station to Moon orbit in 2024.


And expect possible static fire on SN10 today at Boca Chica:




And now, back to crypto:


:lol:

Never used Spotify, so you log in, presumably with a subscription, and you watch it like on YouTube? Or any free way to access it, not gonna fucking pay for it FFS.
Yeah, you can just sign up for a free account but you have to make do with ads... it streams the video just like Youtube, decent quality too.

The premium account removes ads and is the greatest streaming service in the world... if you like music that is.

12 mins in and Joe Rogan states he's never seen how a Falcon 9 booster lands. The look on Musks face, he looks like he's wondering what he's doing talking to this guy... I looked at the podcast length at that point.... 3hrs 24 mins.

He loves talking to Joe. Joe is... millions of the people that Elon wants to talk to, and he's good at communicating that

The fuck does that even mean man?

Jeff Bezos can get back to us once he's actually done something.
Just put him on ignore. Doby is legit retarded, and all he wants to do is white himself out for attention. The only way he knows how to get attention is by being fucking stupid. Don't try to get into a serious conversation about this shit with a fucking six year old moron.

:hat

Yeah, I don't usually bite with Dobys trolls but I must admit to having a bit of a soft spot for the guy too tbh ... he seems to have gone off the rails and be on a bit of a self-destructive path of late and this Youtube shit he's doing doesn't seem to be helping. I basically view Doby as the mostly harmless nut-job in your group of friends whose life is constant drama but you kinda need to look out for.

Don't we have enough infantile retards on this forum already? Retard trolls have killed this place with their constant avalanche of stupid. :sad

All right, finished it in 2 days, at 1,2x speed. Definitely the most in-depth Rogan vs. Elon gig. Key statement: you need to get high very fast.

I didn't get a chance to watch past the 15 min mark last night, gonna get on that tonight but it sounds like the last podcast they did... I don't smoke but I sat back, had a few beers and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a pity that people jumped on that one clip of him taking a toke on a blunt.

Musk is getting better at these online discussions / podcasts I feel.

Seems like Tesla factories are enjoying a winter break, Giga Berlin is one thing, but Giga Texas covered in snow?






Also, Elon's seemingly getting a new addiction and it's not (just) Dogecoin: after giving so many interviews he now wants to take one... with Vladimir Putin on Clubhouse? :lol: That shit would be epic, Lex Fridman will be maaad if Elon's got to interview The Vlad first.







:lol: Please do this Elon... just don't fuck with the little man, or he'll fuck back.

Speaking of freezing temperatures its now -6 C or 24 F in Boca Chica Texas, there's your free cryo test for SN10! Also fantastic breakdown of the SN9 flight profile and how stable it was with very little horizontal movement which somewhat surprised me. SN8 hovered well over the ocean or at least it looked it did before flipping back whereas SN9 mainly remained above site.
