Highlight of last night's doob-fuelled Muskie Twitter meltdown (where he threatened to move his entire production to Texas):

I appreciate Musk laying bare the reality that bringing a large manufacturer like that into your neighborhood "because it's good for the economy" means inviting in a parasite that will immediately attempt to rabbit punch your economy if you if you don't let him endanger your entire population.

Fucking hell. At least actual Notch has the excuse of not being trained from birth to handle mindbending sums of money.

Also, casual reminder that Elongated Muskrat's always been like this, people just ignore it:

The rocket they named the kid after just exploded on launch.

Let's pretend I found or made a .gif of the part in Wings of Honnemise where Shiro and his buddy are making explosion noises while watching grainy footage of failed rocket tests and posted it here.

And to be clear, this isn't "something on it lit on fire and caused damage" explode, this is "serious threat to the community the launch pad is illegally close to" exploded.

The rocket did not explode on launch. It exploded during a test designed to prove that the rocket would not explode when launched.

Can we get the thread title changed to "The Continuing (Mis)adventures of Space Karen"? Or some suitable alternatives. Even a mopey sad sack piece of racist trash like Notch is looking pretty good compared to Muskie these days.

I take it he still has a cult following of young white wannabe tech bros despite everything. I shall watch with interest when they all run off to install his neural lace, and wait for the open source clone project.

I also wish Iain Banks was still around to tear the guy a new one.

The show Years and Years is an absolute piece of trash that handles every aspect of relationships and development horrifically poorly. But one of the biggest, shittiest plot lines revolved around a young girl going trans(humanist. That's the joke, her cool parents are ready for transexuality, but they use the term trans to mean cyborg. Hahaha right?) and presenting this character who has fully researched and studied and understands tech, but still wants to stick thumbdrives in her brain on illegal barges because she thinks the tech is ready.

Elon Musk has frustratingly made that a near-reality.
