Wow, I would not want to be on the team he expects to implement all that tech in just 13 minutes. I've had tough bosses before...but geeesh!
If Biden wins expect this kind of stuff to stop. We need to spend that money on iphones for crack whores squirting out babies
Elon needs to come down to earth, figuratively speaking.
I really have to wonder if his “starship” doesn’t have something akin to an inertial damper/gravity shield generator built into it...
Especially when he moved to stainless steel as the building material....
He could be the conduit for releasing previously withheld tech, then after getting a bunch of people in space he comes out and says.... “This device here” it is in all MY SHIPS!!!
And I have just released the plans on how to make them!!

Musk is a very interesting eccentric character. The reusable rocket tech he has developed is changing the entire dynamic of rocket launching.
That said, his we’re all going to be doomed Mars obsession driving this is just plain idiotic. But, the benefits of his obsession far outweigh his ridiculous obsession.
If he had an inertial damper/gravity shield generator, he wouldn't be building rockets at all. :^) The switch to stainless came from a structural integrity issue and the heat of reentry.
He is by far my favorite, and most admired, Bond Villain!
He should be cast as the new "Q".
I wholeheartedly agree, apart from the "just plain idiotic". I think it's never going to be self-sustaining, but then, betting against Musk is not a great idea. :^)
That said, his were all going to be doomed Mars obsession driving this is just plain idiotic. But, the benefits of his obsession far outweigh his ridiculous obsession.
So maybe it’s not idiotic or ridiculous after all.
dang, takes me 13 minutes just going from living room to kitchen
He is certainly a “Q” for our nation...:)
Heh... He actually talks about job qualifications at one point in these excerpts.
Wow, that must be one long house! /rimshot
In recent years it has seemed like the clock runs too fast.
well they do say time flies like an arrow, while fruit flies like a banana
Don’t try to understand them?
Just round them up and ‘brand’ them?
