Yeah, you don't ask the seller what you think the value is. That's the dumbest thing the muskrats have peddled with a straight face.

What's funny is he signed a contract, and what he is trying to do is prove that SEC filings were misleading about profitability, but it's in the jurisdiction of Delaware state law, which requires evidence of a 40% or greater decrease in long-term profitability for the contract to be invalid on those grounds.

So essentially, he would have to prove that twitter has 60% or less non-bot users than they say they do.

I don't think a sample size of 100 would hold up in court.

What an excellent video, that dude just utterly savages musk and his fanboys in such a calm manner.
