**by virtue of having the money to back a project

no, he was in fact a web developer back in 1999 or so at the pre-paypal company. also a graphic designer

fun fact: when elon musk bought the x.com domain back from paypal for several million dollars a few years ago, he had the site set so that old versions of x.com no longer show up on archive.org

the toxic part is when, instead of retiring to the countryside to build guitars, you keep hammering away at your billion dollar companies because you've hosed your brain so hard that making money is your only remaining passion

if musk cared about making money he wouldn't be in this mess. he cares about being worshipped as the cool genius saving mankind. same reason he insists he's the only person capable of managing tesla, same reason he takes advice from twitter fanboys on a whim, then calls someone a pedo for upstaging him

did you know that he has a pilot's license?



and an instrument rating and AMEL, to boot. he should get a seaplane rating, buy an old flying boat, restore it beautifully inside like a 6-star hotel room, and spend the rest of his life flying to from lake geneva to marseille to lisbon to the azores to the hudson river to muskoka to who the gently caress cares where, just being that billionaire with his flying boat like Hadden from Contact.

it doesn't matter if tesla has d&o insurance. part of the settlement is he has to pay it 100% from his own pocket, cannot use any insurance to reimburse, cannot be indemnified by any company, and cannot deduct any portion of the $20m on any type of taxes.

Never mind your own needs, they say, think of the needs of... of whoever. The state. The poor. Of the army, of the king, of God! The list goes on and on. How many catastrophes were launched with the words "think of yourself"? It's the "king and country" crowd who light the torch of destruction. It is this great inversion, this ancient lie, which has chained humanity to an endless cycle of guilt and failure."

tesla is going to go bankrupt and either disappear or get bought out, it's just a question of when

tesla as a company is less than worthless

tesla as a patent portfolio is probably not worth much

tesla as a brand may be worth something, assuming they stop shipping model 3s before the massive level of defects tank their name

wouldnt they have to have a reason to continue investigating him or is that mentioned in the settlement somewhere, i know they said it doesnt absolve him from double jeopardy and a few other things.
