      THATS IT! There was a picture of him I saw last night and I could not figure out who he reminded me of! Perfect description!

      I have to believe all of his investors are freaking out. If I was on the board of one of his companies I am probably trying to find a way to either gracefully exit or get rid of him.

      There is a great picture floating around of Elon and Kanye together and it reads:

      Kanye: I can't believe how quickly I destroyed my brand!

        • I am flabbergasted on his and everyone's on the right lack of understanding of the first amendment. I assume that's what he means when he says companies that don't want to advertise on his platform anymore or against free speech? Cause his platform is the free speechiest platform ever?

          Twitter (X) whatever is a private company. Disney is a private company. If they don't want to advertise on your platform anymore because of it's content it's not blackmail it's a normal every day business decision.

          These are also the same people that cry about "cancel" culture. Yet, it's the number one tactic they go to when something like this happens. The amount of "I cancelled my Disney sub" on X is off the charts today.

                    Billionaires minted in the latest year accumulated more wealth through inheritance than entrepreneurship for the first time since UBS started tracking the fortunes of the world’s richest almost a decade ago.

                    And billionaire heirs are more likely than their parents to focus on the major opportunities and challenges facing the global economy, investing in sectors such as clean energy and artificial intelligence, the Swiss lender said in a report Thursday.

                    “The great wealth transfer is gaining significant momentum as many billionaire entrepreneurs age,” Benjamin Cavalli, who oversees strategic clients in the global wealth management unit at UBS, told reporters.

                    “This is a theme we expect to see more of over the next 20 years as more than 1,000 billionaires pass an estimated $5.2 trillion to their children.”

                        Cybertruck pricing was unveiled today. "Base" model costs 10k more than originally announce (and yes, pre-orders must pay the difference). Top tier is 30k more than originally announced.

                        Range is no where near promised, and "extra range" can be purchased through an additional truck toolbox sized battery pack.

                        Oh, and the spare tire sits in the bed of the truck as well.




                        Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go oogle the new Dodge Ramcharger.

                        • Yikes.

                          Tesla's (TSLA.O) long-delayed Cybertruck will be priced starting at $60,990, over 50% more than what CEO Elon Musk had touted in 2019 and a cost analysts have said will draw select, affluent buyers.

                          The truck, made of shiny stainless steel and shaped into flat planes, is partly inspired by a car-turned-submarine in the 1977 James Bond movie "The Spy Who Loved Me," Musk has said.

                          Its new body material and unconventional, futuristic styling has added complexity and costs to production, and threatens to alienate traditional pickup truck buyers who focus on utility, experts say.

                          But Musk, who has priced the vehicle's three variants between $60,990 and $99,990, said on Thursday the Cybertruck has "more utility than a truck" and is "faster than a sports car."

                          He drove a Cybertruck onto a stage to cheers from the crowd and later handed over vehicles to about a dozen customers at an event in Austin, Texas.

                          "Finally, the future will look like the future," he said about the truck's design, showing a video of the Cybertruck towing a Porsche 911 and beating another gasoline-powered 911 in a short race.

                          Tesla shares fell 2% in extended trading after closing off 1.6% at $240.08.

                              The one that didn't even fit a bike before. Well once the tire is in there I'm sure you could fit like two or three bottles of water maybe so that's plenty of space.
