Every article I've read about that Cybertruck has been really amusing.

@StillIRise1963 can you imagine being the engineer Musk stumbled to with a doodle of that thing on a napkin?

Musk: isn't it amazing?
Engineer: ha ha, oh you're serious, yeah boss, it's amazing.
Musk: you're going to make it.
Engineer: um me? Make it? What do you mean?
Musk: and it's going to be exactly like this drawing if you want your children to have food on the table.
Engineer: ok boss. Sure boss. Right away boss.
Musk: and make sure it has bullet proof windows.
Engineer: sure sure

    I live in CA and had one pass me on the highway a few weeks back and we'll boy howdy it is NOT better looking irl. Only people in the red-pilled cult would buy one. They'll think those of us pointing and laughing are jealous.

    @StillIRise1963 @thepoliticalcat @jawarajabbi here in Miami there's a lot of assholes, a lot of fascists, a lot of stupidly rich assholes and everybody who owns their home (and in Miami apparently that's only 30% though to be clear Miami is just one city, albiet the largest of 34 in a county with 2m other people in it) has enough equity to buy one.

    I'm actually surprised I haven't seen one yet.

    Truly, epically, ugly. I saw it heading east on I 80 in Solano County. A Studebaker for our time. If you're an attention-seeker like Elmo you'll get plenty of it driving around. A driving version of boosting a nazi on X.

    StillIRise1963,
    @StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

    @jawarajabbi I think Studebaker every time I see it.

    Let's put it this way: Early on he said it was was inspired by the 1977 lotus esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me (the shape is nearly identical just bigger) and it's clear the 1980 DeLorean was at least a minor influence. Now he has the TechBro self aggrandizing ego to say it, "looks like the future".

    I forgot; he bought the actual Lotus from the movie that he based Cybertruck on.

    @Frances_Larina @thepoliticalcat @jawarajabbi @StillIRise1963 if by based on we mean he made the same doodle I did in fourth grade after having watched that Bond movie and made it "better" I guess.

    Honestly, I'd not be surprised if something like it is in the Turner Diaries.

    @thepoliticalcat @philip_cardella @StillIRise1963 Such an excellent point. Guess it speaks to his paranoia, and maybe that of those who buy them. They are planning for the apocalypse they are helping to create and Americans and guns...need protection. ;)

    @philip_cardella This is what happens when you're super arrogant, think you know everything. You make shit like this.

    philip_cardella,
    @philip_cardella@historians.social avatar

    @StillIRise1963 and super untaxed and unregulated. You can't make that piece of shit if you didn't have money to set on fire.

    StillIRise1963,
    @StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

    @philip_cardella Exactly. These fuckers have it so they don't ever suffer from risk. They can do whatever random ass things that pop into their minds. They have no skin in any game and we can't let this stand. Risk is a necessary factor.

    When I went to an alumni event circa 2004, I realized just how many of those guys are serial failures if you judge them by whether their startups didn't fold. But if you judge them by their ability to live a lavish lifestyle for decades on other people's money, well, that's a different story.

    philip_cardella,
    @philip_cardella@historians.social avatar

    @StillIRise1963 this is such a huge thing.

    They're like, oh golly I failed so many times, and it's like yeah bro, because failure didn't mean you weren't eating, it might have meant you weren't upgrading your yacht. That's NOT RISK.

    StillIRise1963,
    @StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

    @philip_cardella This is also why a person can play around with governments and satellites.

    philip_cardella,
    @philip_cardella@historians.social avatar

    @StillIRise1963 and it shows how incompetent governments have become.

    Oh you're rich? Well, I'd like your opinion on...

    On what? Wage theft? Being born wealthy? Whatever else Netanyahu is he's a leader--probably an illegitimate one but still--of a country at war.

    What qualifications does Apartheid Clyde have aside from loving apartheid and being rich to talk to any world leader privately?

    StillIRise1963,
    @StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

    @philip_cardella Yep. It does. Some seem more like reality shows.

    StillIRise1963,
    @StillIRise1963@mastodon.world avatar

    @philip_cardella Exactly! If it doesn't hurt bad, there are no controls.

    @thepoliticalcat Doesn't want to pay for a paint shop. Wants to re-use the cool sheet metal he made for his rockets. Yeah. That's not going to make for a good truck.
