Musk offers a weird apology.

That cracked me up. People should have this kind of humor. Such a stress releif.

@nag : The aftermath is a testimony of the character?

Imagine this...hold for it...He has to live with this abnormal tweet. *Anyone could have done such a stupid one. Now he's a public person. He is not abliged by the same rules as the common pleb.
It's tough up in the hierarchy.

*) Ok, that's a stretch...but stupid things are being done. I have actually hard to see how this world, in some space of time, could be so good as it was. Kudos - Mankind!

The English guy was an expert caver/potholer/spelunker. His expert knowledge of the cave was critical in the rescue, and he was regularly in consultation with the divers brought in at his recommendation.

Whereas Musk is a tool who seems to think that he knows better than teams of caving and diving experts when rescuing people from flooded caves.

I think that English guy is going to be VERY rich VERY soon

Having been to Thailand a few times, I understand Musk's troll. The number of expats in Thailand for purely sexual reasons is revolting.

Musk is too rich to lose that sort of court case. He said pedo (foot), not paedo (child molester).

Your energy independence is brought to you by Saudi Arabia, courtesy Musk.

Quote:
Elon Musk has outlined his plan to take Tesla private and said he discussed financing the deal with Saudi Arabia.

The founder of the electric carmaker also indicated that he would need to raise far less than the $70bn it has been estimated he would need.
