I wonder how many are using it as a convenient excuse to stop advertising there because its not useful anymore.

I wonder if Musk is consciously or unconsciously emulating Henry Ford -- it just seems a bizzare coincidence that two iconic car manufacturers a century apart should be, as a sideline, doing their best to promote antisemitism and to ingratiate themselves with Nazis.

The smart industrialists don't tend to make their antisemitism and Nazi sympathies public.

SpaceX has again lost a Starship rocket 8 minutes after lunch. But: it's a success, stupid, because it lasted longer since the rocket in April! The mission plan was to have it do a full revolution around earth.

This makes you wonder how long it will take until this rocket is ready to carry somebody to the moon...

Elon magic space age technology, fuck yeah!

Why is he starting over from scratch when he already had a working, reliable, scalable platform?

The rocket's last meal consisted of a pan-fried chicken, some pastries, boiled beef and puréed turnips, a dessert consisting of two chicken wings, vegetables, two glasses of wine cut with water, a piece of sponge cake and a glass of Malaga wine

WHY DO YOU HATE INNOVATION?????? People like you are the reason we can't have cheap plywood submarines!
Well, that and the constant losses of life due to wooden submersibles.

Well if they want reliable submarines they can start their own sub manufacturer and we can let market forces decide which is better.

Nevermind that literally everything is a race to the bottom for both quality and the buying power of the buyer because profits profits profits!
