just like papa john he hasn't learned anything from the trump era

even if you do apologize, you have to add a "lol jk" afterwards like trump did with the "i agree with the intelligence assessment that russia hacked the election. also it could've been anyone else"

in case you want live updates

so far..

quote:

Shares of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) have been halted by the Nasdaq with news pending.

The halt time was recorded as 2:08 p.m. ET.

Elon Musk has issued a series of tweets on taking the company private.

Tesla has not confirmed the information in the tweets yet.

TSLA +7.39% at the time of the halt.

2:26 p.m. - Ross Gerber of Gerber Kawasaki says the company has confirmed to him the information in the Musk tweets are accurate.

2:30 p.m. - Oppenheimer warns that a Tesla buyout from a foreign entity could draw attention from The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

2:33 p.m. - Circling back to Musk's Twitter replies: "My hope is *all* current investors remain with Tesla even if weíre private. Would create special purpose fund enabling anyone to stay with Tesla. Already do this with Fidelityís SpaceX investment."

also apparently the social media announcement thing has come up previously with netflix and a facebook post. the SEC "investigated" and said "well if you're going to announce critical stuff on social media you have to alert people before hand through normal channels"

its doubtful anything will happen - the requirement is that these things are communicated to the public without restrictions, good luck convincing a jury that a tweet doesn't count for that

one of the 152s i fly has a metal bar like that in the seat that you can feel.

so tesla has at least reached the level of seat comfort provided by a 40 year old small airplane where everything is built to minimize weight above all else

luxury vehicles


nah, that's when you're selling 100k+ luxobarges like bentleys or whatever. supercars are the one place where you can get away with making something that costs as much as a house and feels like riding in a coffin made out of a bathtub because you can say it's for performance reasons.

this is apparently the only picture on the internet of someone getting into a countach. i wonder why

musk won't be going to jail, but there are real monetary incentives for those empowered to conduct oversight of his antics to remove him from leadership if need be (unlike certain other rash tweeting executives)

the likely penalty from an SEC settlement would be a ban on being an officer of or on the board of a company
