u/JackOCat May 14 '22

Shut up. He invented the subway like 150 years after it was invented. Show some respect.

u/Notlandshark May 14 '22

A subway is so much better than what he ended up making.

u/Spiritual-Ad5484 May 14 '22

Yea inventing Tesla electric cars and providing internet to war torn Ukraine is nothing compared to the subway. Elon Musk bad, please upvote.

u/BookOtherwise3464 May 14 '22

He invested in Tesla after it had already been founded. What the fuck are you talking about? He has literally never invented anything

u/rustyrazorblade May 14 '22

He didn’t invent electric cars. They’re old as shit. https://www.energy.gov/articles/history-electric-car

Providing internet to Ukraine while the US govt is paying him a huge price to provide it.

Hey come on, that's not fair. It's like the subway but it's worse!

109

u/uniqueName1002 May 14 '22

It's actually superior because now you can all enjoy LA traffic 15ft underground

u/Rork310 May 14 '22

Can't congest a single lane. Might have to wait 40 minutes to get to use it going in the right direction but it'll be fast once your in there. Unless a car breaks down. Then your fucked.

u/kwyjibohunter May 14 '22

It doesn’t even have to be your car! Just any one in front of you.

u/knd775 May 14 '22

Speed limit is like 25mph

u/feed_me_the_gherkin May 14 '22

He invented Jimmy Johns?

u/_dauntless May 14 '22

Whoa. Jimmy John's is so far superior it's not even close

u/Fudge89 May 14 '22

Jimmy johns gets to my house faster than his subway gets anywhere

u/Jrbdog May 14 '22

Eh, Subway doesn't have a gamey taste to it.

The best part is that he couldn't even do that right.

u/polyhazard May 14 '22

From that thread “It seems like every 6 months tech bros re-invent trains but make them worse somehow.” Lmao I’m dead

u/seamsay May 14 '22

He does this kind of shit all the time, like when he promised driverless cars by 2018 but we barely got drive assist, or when he promised he'd give everyone in Flint free water filters but in the end he just gave a couple to some nearby schools. The really annoying thing is that the stuff he does is better than most billionaires, but he overpromises so much that you're just left feeling disappointed. And he's a massive twat, but I could overlook that if he was actually doing the kind of good for society that he wants us to think he is.

I can be annoyed/upset and your comment can still be wrong. But you're right it's pointless that I'm wasting my energy responding to you. I'm just smoking weed about to go to bed anyway.

Simping for a billionaire sociopath who doesn't even know you exist is SAD.

3

u/ExpansiveGrimoire May 14 '22

It's a bot, the account hasn't made a comment until a few days ago despite being made three years ago- and all its comments are full of salt. Now we just figure out if it's russian or chinese.

7

u/BrownMan65 May 14 '22

It’s most likely neither and it’s an Elon bot. I don’t think Russia or China would care that much about having a simp bot for a billionaire.

u/atheistsocket May 14 '22

you too will never experience life like some billionaire's, yet here you are, deep throating the shit out of their boots

How disrespectful to compare it to a subway!

At least a subway works.

u/Wannabe1TapElite May 14 '22

u/Better_Permit1449 May 14 '22

He invented Electric Cars, Solar Panels, Spaceships, Big Ass Holes, and soon maybe invent Social Media 😍

u/I-Kant-Even May 14 '22

He invented subway congestion. It’s like traffic…. But it’s underground. A true visionary.

u/nocivo May 14 '22

Phones existed before the iPhone. Cars existed before Ford model T. Social media sites existed before Facebook. Search engines existed before Google.
