First pics and vids of ole Muskie's child death tubes. Just climb inside this metal kinda floating coffin kiddo. Nevermind the part about there being a section of the cave where it's narrow enough divers have to remove their oxygen tanks. It's on a plane to Thailand tomorrow!!!

tbf if i genuinely believed what i was doing could save 12 children i'd work weekends too

of course musk's employees often do the same for much more nebulous and exploitative reasons but this one at least seems like a good use of time subjectively even if the whole idea is stupid

Yeah honestly I don't know why I'm making fun of ol' musky for this one. He's trying to help save a bunch of kids' lives, that's always a good thing as long your efforts aren't so misdirected or incompetent that they're foiling other attempts (they aren't)

when you are faced with a consistently bad actor it's easy to assume that what they're doing is invariably terrible, and that if it doesn't appear to be bad it's only because there's something you're not aware of yet

maxing out the cynicism gauge

a rich guy deeply concerned with his image notices that some children have become newsworthy for their dire situation. normally he does poo poo all for children but this time there's an opportunity for a PR win so he announces on twitter to the public and the media that he's going to help save them, as advised by his image consultant

he weighted that thing so it'd have neutral buoyancy, right? otherwise it'd float super forcefully. you'd need to adjust the weight for each kid. what's the rated full/empty weight?

I'm sure that you could easily get a rigid metal cylinder large enough to contain a 12 year old child around an underwater corner where highly trained combat divers have to take off their equipment to force their bodies through
