but at that point why are you even still bothering to performatively "earn" money? your money makes its own money

you could boss around your household staff or a bunch of sex workers or idk build a star trek bridge and hire actors to be your crew [and maybe also have sex with them] but gently caress why would you go and do actual business stuff? brain worms

I guess if your whole identity is "I'm a magic business genius" and you have no other life you'll just keep doing it but drat, wealth is wasted on the wealthy

But, he added, “if you have anyone who can do a better job, please let me know. They can have the job. Is there someone who can do the job better? They can have the reins right now.”

it's so clear that he's asking that question in a histrionic, rhetorical way

"oh boo hoo poor me, I'd totally quit this job if there's someone who could do a better job bb bubub ubububuut this is my unique destiny and literally no other businessperson in the world could do it that's unpossible"

if any of the problems surfaced so far are as significant as they seem they should 100% be engaged in trying to find partnerships (aka shop the various assets of $TSLA including the brand around) with other automakers; that's what a competent replacement for elon musk would do.

if musk defines the mission of tesla as continuing on his nutso crusade (to defeat automakers and oil companies! by being a lovely automaker and taking saudi investment!) then indeed, there is no one who is both competent and committed to continue down that path; the two are mutually exclusive

I think they end up with a really nasty problem if it's less than 350 by the end of the year. Seeing as they have a big pile of convertible bonds due. Though they might have already converted or something I don't really know for sure.

“He goes into his brain, and then you just see he is in another world. He still does that. Now I just leave him be because I know he is designing a new rocket or something.”— Elon Musk’s mother describing how as a child Elon sometimes seemed to drift off into trances. He wouldn’t respond when spoken to and would have a distant look in his eyes. Musk’s parents and physicians thought maybe he was deaf and removed his adenoid glands thinking that would improve his hearing. It made no difference.

quote:

 “One night he told me, ‘If there was a way that I could not eat, so I could work more, I would not eat. I wish there was a way to get nutrients without sitting down for a meal.’ ” — Nicholson

Someone was whispering earlier that the school Musk opened was specifically for purposes of keeping his kids' developmental differences private.

I personally am good with gossiping about and poo poo-talking the man but not poo poo-talking any sort of congenital developmental stuff.

that was me

itís not out of the question seeing as how his children are the products of multiple births, particularly the triplets, which is why IVF tries hard to avoid that these days

also the school itself was noted as being oddly selective

Just like it's not enough to be a billionaire and make money from owning financial instruments, you gotta be a world-changing businessman

Why settle for privacy and a good education when you could be sending your children to the most exclusive school for the unbelievably gifted

Why do objectively good thing when you could buff your ego to a high shine

judging by the 3% APY, the loan's probably directly from their stockbroker via margin trading account

if so, the shares will be forcibly sold to settle their debts if their account drops enough
