So he built a submarine and therefore it must be used in a critical rescue operation because, Elon Musk?

What a cunt.

Lets see here.
Someone (E.Musk) put a great effort, personell, and money in an attempt to win points. And he gets angry?
Wow....I mean...WOW! Sucha hypocrite. Burn him at the stake! /S

Sometimes shit doesn't work and you have to try something different, but special thanks to any solicited help that tries to come up with a useful solution on a protracted rescue like this. Thanks Mr. Musk. It was a great idea and in the future, it might just be the best idea in a different situation.

He didn't get pissed about it not being used, he got pissed over MSM hacks, probably with a short position in Tesla, attacking him for even trying to build a device for that situation.

The MSM fake newsed him. It's pure bullshit. The Thai government requested that he continue working on it if the current operations weren't going successfully. The risk was that the children had to learn to scuba dive in water that is so mucky and dark it had only inches of visibility, and be in good enough health to swim the two separate underwater passages after two weeks of starvation and dehydration. If any of the children couldn't do it, they were going to use Musk's contraption. But with the help of the master divers, the kids did it.

With the help of Buddha. It was Buddha. They learned to meditate, and that's why they didn't panic. It's important to give credit where credit is due, and to be precise in our use of language. There's a very high probability of panic in this scenario, and panic = death. Yet they didn't panic, and it was because of Buddha, or something.

So far very strong performance.

There are British expats all over southeast Asia buggering little boys and girls. It's what they do.

I'll invite Musk. He should respond. If not I'll say there is a cave full of trapped people in need of rescue.

I try to see the coin as two folded. Someone asked for his help, he responded. The op of Musk crashed. Of course, as time goes in his case, ego goes up....In light of that, it's a good recovery to sobriety for him, to point things out as you did....a matter of fact, I know he might be reading the forum. :)

:)

Musk should see it this way, a good laugh. As I said, he did this for the points. As with all bat-minded people, it hurts and in reflection of such, in their mind someone else has to be whipped.
In this case it was with words. Some smoke, coca cola and a fatty to subdue his pain ( I assume ).

Probably meant to type Pedro, probably thought he was Mexican or some-such.

or maybe he meant they could have "walked" right in. Pedometer, Pedro... I am sure he wasn't implying they were kiddie fiddler's that would have just been rude

There you go, perfectly reasonable explanation -we should see about representing him if he gets sued.

Should be worth a few bob.

You should tweet your offer of representing him.

But be careful, you may end up having a submarine.
