It's the Joe Rogan/Rand Paul "Look how smart I am because I question everything and go against the grain/norms" BS. They've taken what is otherwise an important idea - think for yourself - and combined it with this "the worldview is liberal and therefore always wrong" mindset, and turned into a contrarian philosophy that rubs elbows with conspiracy theories, anti-government sentiment, and fallacies/lies that speaks to a not insignificant percentage of the population who want to feel smart (or prove it to the public on social media) because they go against the general consensus on a lot of topics.

It started with climate change 25 or so years ago and then when Covid came around, it spread to vaccinations, and rigged elections, etc. And of course, once you tie something like this into a political movement, it just explodes.

This guy is supposedly brilliant and has infinite resources but always tries to pass off shit like this as him just asking questions. Yet the answer to the questions he "asks" could be answered in 2 minutes with basic common sense or internet skills.

I think it was last week he was "asking" why wikipedia is always asking for donations and where that money goes.

Zuckerberg tore his ACL training for an MMA fight. I think the only reasonable thing to do is for a hobbled Zuckerberg to fight a similarly hobbled Elon. Not only would it be a fair fight, but it probably increases the chances of a significant injury to one or both of them.

I wonder if the Universe one day, in a fit of karmic retribution, will have one of his self-driving Teslas run him over while he's crossing the street. And then it'll blow up.

It seems like an exodus is taking place. Not sure how they keep that place afloat much longer.

Well they're reportedly down to 1 major advertiser and Musk told those that left "to go fuck themselves" at an event yesterday where Bob Iger was speaking.

It seems like we're in the last days of Twitter. They even acknowledged today that they can't won't be able to continue for long unless advertisers return.

I cannot think of anyone (with the possible exception of Trump) who cares more about whether he is liked than Elon.

Did anyone else that Musk did a twitter live with Alex Jones and Ramaswamy to celebrate Alex Jones getting his twitter account reinstated?

Oh and Ramaswamy didn't mute his phone while he took a piss, but that's another story.

Japanese disaster prevention X account can’t post anymore after hitting API limit - Dexerto

Quote:
According to Unseen Japan, NERV is under X’s “Basic” API plan, where it can post 100 posts in 24 hours. This costs around $100, while the next step up requires users to pay around $5000 a month for usage of its API. Due to NERV running at a loss, the company has chosen not to subscribe to the higher tier.

Can someone send me a flow chart for the hierarchy of hate that MAGA/Q ascribe to? There's something about Orthodox Jewish tunnels trending and the anti-Semitism is flowing on Twitter. But they also cheer Israel in murdering innocent Palestinians.

At this point I have it as Women > Jews > Hispanics >= Blacks > Liberals > Muslims but I feel like I'm missing some.

Always hate the other. If the other is killing other other, then that is good.

Your question ascribes some semblance of logic that all evidence indicates is lacking from the subject matter.

Who would have guess a guy whose dad ran emerald mines during apartheid in South Africa would be racist.

My father-in-law used to work as CEO for a guy who wouldn't hire black truck drivers or office workers because he thought blacks were too dumb to be trusted with that work. He would only allow them to be hired for warehouse work. My father-in-law only said something when he rage-retired.

Elon is a super douche but that tweet he's replying to is also as lame as can be.

LOL. I thought that the guy had just posted about voting in the primary.

Elon has more free time than anyone I know.

No, see, he's a CEO of 4 companies... now, don't try to work 2 jobs at once as a regular human, that's just greed.

You have a surprising amount of down time when you sleep on the floor at the office instead of interacting with humans like a normal person.

I know you're talking about Elon, but I actually spent most of a month sleeping on the floor of my home office while my wife and I traded random illnesses. Add in the lack of human contact and it really cuts deep.

Hopefully he is working a minimum of 40 hours per week onsite at each company, like he requires his employees to do.

Latest saga on Twitter is that he appears unaware that PCs come with operating systems. And, on the advice of some people responding to his tweets, he is texting the CEO of Microsoft for tech-support.

I almost never spend any time on Twitter these days, but I've noticed a ramp up of push notifications to my phone from right wingers. I got 3 from Musk directly, so I had to block him, followed by DT Jr, then today Laura Ingraham. I don't follow any of them, but now they are all blocked.

Only because I sort of work tangentially to the AI stuff, these people are insane and think AI is much more robust than it actually is. These things are just spinning existing content they scraped, they're not sentient or any of that shit.
