okay I guess you guys hate progress and free stuff for poor people like he's constantly doing

I mean yeah all the other times we used that as an excuse the projects ultimately fizzled out

and yeah he steals from artists and designers, fires union organizers and is regularly fined and lost control of his company for his inability to not break laws on twitter, but musk is also going to be making like 69x more than NASA and will be the only reason we get to go to space so why are we so concerned about some stupid thing affecting people that I don't follow?

I thought he made it clear some time ago

if you have a problem with anything Elon Musk does, you are a pedophile

if you have a problem with Elon Musk calling random people who disagree with him a pedophile, you are a pedophile

Nono, Friday, what you fail to understand is that in South Africa, people call each other "pedo guy" all the time. Like "What up, pedo guy? Wanna go out for beers on Saturday, or will you be too busy pedophiling?"

(In case the link doesn't work, this is Musk's actual legal defense: "pedo guy" is a common insult in South Africa and people there say it all the time without meaning it literally.)

Oh come on guys. We all know that classic South African prank where you call up a journalist and tell them to look into whether your friend is a pedophile!

I think I'm supposed to feel insulted, but I'm really just confused.

U.K. startup creates uncomfortable toilet to increase worker's productivity.

“In modern times, the workplace toilet has become private texting and social media usage space,” the company website reads, adding that their product “offers the ability to increase business efficiency and profits through reductions in social media usage.”

Won't their faces be red when they get hit with a class-action suit from people who have disabilities that require them to access the toilet for more than "a few minutes".

'Oppressor of the disabled' is a protected class in England now. You get knighted for it.

The fine detailed that they were making kids work past midnight and more than 48 hours per week.

But I found the "they're just 15 year olds who want to work, this isn't a problem" comment anyway.

Worry not, they were fined one hundred whole dollars per offence. That's clearly more than sufficient to dissuade them from repeating this scandalous behavior.
How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

I'm legit surprised it wasn't 'lunch time' violations. Most fast food (also the theatre so I know this) is under a special rule which allows them to not require their associates to have lunches but children have to have a lunch at least every six hours and a lot of managers HATE it.
