    They had a team of experienced rescue divers on-site working on a solution, while Musk was making a sub thing over emails and what he saw on the news. Put yourself in the position of the rescue coordinator - there's the very real possibility that there is no way to get the 13 people out and they will die. If you tell Musk to fuck off with his half-assed sub that doesn't even fit in the cave, and in the end the kids die because there really was no way of saving them, Musk gets to claim he totally would have saved them with his contraption (even if it's not true), and you're immediately a media pariah for telling him off. Much better to let Musk go off and play with his toys while you're actually trying to save the kids.

    Our real life Bruce Wayne is hilarious.

    I’m starting to like him more.

    Yeah he’s nuts, eccentric, but he’s coming up with out of the box ideas. I’ll give him that.

    Initial British consultants asked for the sub, and urged Musk to hurry (Tesla posted the emails on twitter after he was attacked for his effore to help).

    Musk delivered personaly, and left it there just in case when somoene else decided was not usable.

    Then this clown personally and agressive insults Musk for his effort. And he got hit back.

    So can you sue people you slander now becasue they slander you back? It can be argued that the divers insult publicized hurt tesla stock, more than the pedo thing about the diver.

    as usual, the orchestrated media campaign agianst tesla continues burries what really happened and slants the story and excluding info.

    Nope.

    This is the exact point in time where the sub idea was hatched.

    https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1015105500105412610

    Since you don't know how to read, this is how it went down. Random twitter user suggests to Elon to help, at first he says Thai government has it under control, but by the next day had SpaceX team reach out and get details. What follows is a 2 day brainstorming session with other twitter users on what to build which eventually became this mini-sub.

    So no, brits didn't ask him for anything. He inserted himself into the situation after realizing what a great PR opportunity this could be.

    Yes they asked for help and for him to hurry. He offered help first of course and was welcomed. He posted the email.

    Your and the pedos claim that it was a pr stunt is hate based and holds no reality.

    Slander by the pedo got him served.

    Bruce Wayne is a strong silent dignified character, plus he is actually good at business

    Elon is more like The Riddler IMO... besides the personality match, he is really good at stealing from investors on a grand scale

    I agree with the headline of this article:

    https://www.thestreet.com/investing/...musk--14651946

    Tesla should just fire Elon and bring in somebody with proper experience to run the company... he makes so many blunders, has no idea how to manage people, and he isn't able to communicate with the media and investors in a way that benefits the company.

    Let him be chairman, he owns enough shares for a board seat anyways. But agreed he really isn’t CEO material.

    I don’t think they’ll fire him. There’s no way. The valuation of Tesla rides a lot on Elon himself being at the helm. Without him the valuation of Tesla might sink back to reality. Better to take a small loss now than a massive loss long term when they need the stock price up.

    What’s funny is if it did happen and he gets ousted, it’ll be the second time he’s gotten the boot but still hold a lot of shares and profit. This happened at PayPal when Musk wasn’t delivering, got kicked out by Thiel who quickly grew PayPal and sell to eBay, making Elon a fuck ton of money.

    Pretty odd to turn around your decision like that.

    He said the build quality still sucks. But the packaging was impressive.

    You can date a crackhead with a great personality.

    Or maybe he doesn't wanna be called 'pedo' lol

    Basically, it's exactly what you expected. People who are experts in electronics are doing those components well to cut cost.

    If there is 30% margin on a model 3 that averages $50K a piece, that's $1.5B to the coffer if they can move 100K before year is out. Not enough to fund other initiatives but definitely a good lifeline.

    The problem is the pent up demand on the $50k Model 3 is only that high for so long. But if they can find that many buyers, kudos.

    The autoblog summary is interestingly misleading.

    The big takeaway is that the Model 3 should be profitable, something that's been a struggle for automakers to achieve with EVs. Munro admits he was wrong about the car, initially thinking there was no way Tesla could make a profit on it. He said no other electric car is as profitable as the Model 3, something that should be a big boon for Tesla. Based on Munro & Associates' findings, the rear-view mirror on a Chevy Bolt EV costs more than $130 more than the mirror on the Tesla. Other components have a similar disparity.
    The Bolt and Leaf are pretty thin margin cars, but they compete in the ~$35k space. The $50k LR + Premium + AP Model 3 is a high margin because of the options, so not a surprise right now that they're seeing 30%. That changes dramatically as they allow base LR RWD and eventually SR RWD "$35k" cars to sell. The rear view mirror comparison is also silly, the Bolt EV mirror costs that much more because it's a HD screen and not a mirror haha.

    Glad to see the stock move up from this news tho. They really need it right now.
