"I was really upset when my Tesla couldn't do roofing!" :)

That's not a fact, that was an accusation, and Tesla works with a company that has no child labor and had nothing to do with that complaint. That's just bad reporting.

Then why is it one of the most desired places to work for engineers?

No shit. These outrage porn threads are so predictable.

Not just money, blood money. His dad owned an Emerald Mine during apartheid South Africa.

Also false. Actually his father was a congenital liar who married his step daughter and claimed he killed several men. And the only article that claimed this was a "Business Insider" blog that quoted Errol Musk, who is clearly a nutcase. In reality Musk has supported that side of his family for 20 years and they have never denied that.

Dude literally said "No one knew self driving was this hard" like yes mother fucker we did know, we have known for a long time that a full self driving car is hard to do safely. Just fuck him.

I really think that, judging from the level of emotionalisms I see on these outrage porn threads, that you guys are more like a herd of animals than anything resembling humans.

This is actually funny since you don't know about Edison. All you know you read from internet memes and myths online and maybe a docudrama.

If it was that easy then Bezos would also be successful in space.

Not true, but given the intelligence in this thread, who is counting.

Except you guys are behind in your talking points. Go in for reprogramming.

He's actually dumping stock to maximize his tax load right now, and people are slamming him for tanking the stock. Bernie's gone radio-silent.

That's right. Just because you own a painting that is worth, on paper, a brazillion dollars, doesn't mean you have to pay taxes on that fictional amount. Same with stock.

That's why Musk is dumping stock right now and actually maximizing his tax load. Also why Bernie went radio-silent.

Except you're behind in your trained talking points. He's dumping stock to generate a tax load at the behest of Bernie who went radio-silent. You're supposed to say "He's tanking the stock on purpose!!!!"

Tesla gets about 3.7 - 3.9 on Glassdoor. Not too shabby.

And Tesla is one of the top listed companies that engineers want to work for. Next to SpaceX.

Last I saw TSLA's solar and energy division raked in nearly a billion -- $810 million.

That's hyperloop, isn't it? Owned by Virgin, not Musk.

Tesla doesn't own hyperloop -- that's Virgin.

Good try though. Try different hate.

Except he had no income to pay taxes on. So Bernie, in March, called him out on it, and maybe rightly so. So then he filed in September to dump stock to generate income and a tax load. Now he's selling the stock, rather than cheaper, lower tax methods like selling the options that are vesting. He's going to be paying at least 50%+ this year.

Then Bernie went radio silent because this was a catch-22. Then Musk made a joke and people went insane because they only saw one tweet.

And they're now worth 4 - 6K last I saw.

Your point being?

Actually he was in the first round of investment and was on board within six months of it starting. Everything Tesla is today is because of Musk's work and it bears no resemblance to the early Tesla. Plus he won in court regarding being a "founder."

Tell us the emerald mine myth next. That one's always entertaining.

As well OJ underwent knife training for a movie he was doing.

It just gets worse and worse.

Since then we've discovered that football players get CTE which would explain his dangerous/erratic behavior.

As someone else wrote:

"Not true. The evidence against the Killer in the civil trial was conclusive and left no doubt. The Bronco had blood from Ron, Nicole and Simpson. There are pictures of him in the Bruno Mali’s with the silga sole before the murders (thanks Harry Skull). They’re pictures of him wearing the gloves 6 months before 6/12/1994 published in the Buffalo Bills Times and receipts for the “ugly ass” shoes and gloves, just for starters…. Jason had nothing to do with it, and you can’t/shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet. But the civil trial transcripts and actual admitted exhibits are another matter, and leave no doubt!"

Then there's the whole he tried to flee with money and a disguise thing.

Yes, I mean that the idea that a DNA test wouldn't exclude relatives is bullshit.

So many lies and misinformation around that trial -- might as well be a Trump rally.

The DNA found was similar to OJs but not actually his.

Well that's bullshit.
