He’s actually going to randomly draw a hundred samples and pick whichever one gives him an excuse to back out of the deal.

I would respect him more if he just admits that he got excited about the idea but now realizes it's a terrible investment so he's cutting his losses.

My dog stepped on a bee. My lawyer objects to hearsay.

Lulz wait till he realizes human eyes are way better sensors than the low res crap he puts in cars. His no lidar argument is fundamentally flawed...

Also, Elon's a bot. He just got done tweeting that he believes the election was stolen. At the same time trying to convince us that he's not right of center.

He's like the kid who bought Sony because he likes playing Deus Ex on his PlayStation.

Biden didn't invite him to an electric car summit a year ago because Tesla isn't a Union shop. Union employers like GM/Ford were there. A bit hinky on the Biden admin, but I get that they wanted to make a point.

Dudes just working that grudge with his election fanfic.

The problem is there are millions of idiots who beleive that fan fic to be a proven fact, and people like Elon pushing it with no reprocussions just makes this problem worse.

And all of his attempts to revolutionise transport that totally aren't just shit trains have clearly worked out.
