I suppose we’re not supposed to be mocking people for being dumb, but thinking about maybe starting to do a little due diligence on a merger agreement that was signed a couple of weeks ago is not exactly a sign of brilliance. I’m almost tempted to buy some TWTR stock just to hedge the mental pain if the rat delivers on his 4.20 deal (plus 50).
So there is a theory (or meme?) out there that Elon Musk is kind of smart. I’m thinking that’s an engineering perspective. When it comes to dealing with people in general, and the government and lawyers in particular, he is dumb. And he is being so in a very public way. Which, I guess, is your prerogative when you are the world’s richest man…

I keep circling back around to the position that Elon Musk is the answer to the question, who would Donald Trump be if he had been a reasonably competent engineer rather than a completely incompetent real estate mogul?

The good news is, it has begun! With some luck, this nonsense will go to zero, wipe out the true fan boys and the follower idiots, and be solidly in the rear view mirror. And, because we allowed it to get into the trillions, kill a bunch of other people in the process. We’ve seen that movie before. Some of us had walk-on parts.

That's pretty much my day. Just substitute pheasant, venison, penguin,... for the green stuff.

Is there such a thing as an avetarian diet (only birds)?

Overweight falcons and sparrowhawks are basically unheard of, so ...

Horror job. I’d jump out of the window after a week at most. No joking.
BTW what the heck are recycled trees? Environmentally conscious version of wood?
I don’t know if her chai latte is made of recycled coffee beans but to me it sounds like something FDA shouldn’t approve.
