But that’s how it is when you start wanting to have things. Now, I just look at them, and when I go away I carry them in my head. Then my hands are always free, because I don’t have to carry a suitcase.
i can't wait for someone with a cybertruk who lives in a flood prone area to use it (briefly) as a boat to cross a flooded section of road and have their car start on fire

David Brock is a guy who used to be a right wing media hitman kind of guy who then decided he was doing bad things so he "switched sides" and founded Media Matters for America (the org elon is being pissy about)

I just learned one of my coworkers worked for Tesla, and apparently they don't actually have a parts catalog for their different models and will literally just switch suppliers mid production, and tell their engineers to hack software to run on new chipsets on already built cars.

They call it "a startup attitude," apparently.

I'd like to see the list (but not badly enough to look at it) because if you exclude politicians the guy who owned Ollie's Bargain Outlet (rip) could be the 45th most powerful person in DC.

i think that list has a bunch of dc restaurant owners on there just because government people go to them a lot iirc

Fabricated distractions, AKA people pointing out all the Nazi ads on your lovely site.

Pointing out big company ads are appearing next to Nazi content and those ads are paying those Nazi users for that content.

Linda and Elon probably think it’s all bots, too bad for them the nazis are very proud to admit they’re nazis and Elon is supporting them.

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2023/11/judge-rejects-elon-musks-attempt-to-kill-twitter-ftc-privacy-settlement/
Elon Musk lost an attempt to avoid a deposition and terminate a privacy settlement that Twitter agreed to before he bought the company.

Musk's X Corp. in July asked a federal judge for "a protective order staying the notice of deposition of Elon Musk," and an order to terminate or modify the company's 2022 settlement with the Federal Trade Commission. US Magistrate Judge Thomas Hixson denied both requests in an order issued Thursday in US District Court for the Northern District of California.

The May 2022 settlement with the FTC came in response to Twitter targeting ads at users with phone numbers and email addresses collected from those users when they enabled two-factor authentication. US authorities are investigating whether the Musk-owned social network, now officially called X, is complying with the settlement's privacy and security requirements.

There was a legal flaw in X Corp.'s motion to terminate the settlement and prevent Musk's deposition, Hixson wrote. When Twitter agreed to the privacy settlement last year, there was a "stipulated order" issued by the court and an "administrative order" issued by the FTC. X asked the court to terminate the stipulated order, but Hixson pointed out that the two orders are quite different.

"The obligations that X Corp. seeks to be relieved of come from the FTC's Administrative Order, not this Court's Stipulated Order," Hixson wrote. The FTC's administrative order "stands on its own," and the relevant Federal Rule of Civil Procedure "allows the Court to modify its own orders, not another tribunal's orders," the judge wrote.

It's as likely that none of it is even true and it's a waste of time to figure it out one way or another because it's completely trivial.

david brock knew x, the everything app, was going to be the last bastion of free speech back in 2004 when he founded it a full two years before twitter was even created and he created media matters to quash our last chance of truly open public discord.

Just like when they all pulled out when he bought in or the j6 politicians, they just wait a couple months for the heat to blow off then buy back in.


Anyway, has Elon addressed all the verified dropshipper bots spamming scam sales?
