    So what the F*#€k is up with Elon Musk ? This spring there was that poorly handled margin call that nearly went off the rails and now he's slinging mud at one of those rescue divers that saved that group of Thai youth stranded in that case.

    Apparently Musk had made a half assed rescue attempt that may have been a ill - advised publicity stunt (If they don't need the sub, no bfd just leave it parked there for another time) When called on it by some of the rescuers Musk made reference to them being a bunch of "Pedo's" then doubled down by Tweeting :

    "Bet ya a signed dollar it's true," he wrote in another tweet that has since been removed.

    British rescuer considers legal action against Musk over 'pedo' tweet

    Add to those the handful of statements about marking our presence to other potentially hostile civilizations in the universe (Been Done I Think) I think this guy is headed for a Howard Hughes like existence.

    he is already falling down at supersonic speed
    it doesn't help that he stole the ideas of wherner von braun without credit

    Growing up, Musk was probably the smartest person in the room. He most likely went from having ideas on how to make money to thinking he is right on every subject. Smart, rich people do not like admitting that they have also done some very stupid things from time to time.

    The pedo comments were pathetic, the madman side of him speaking out...

    And more piling on :

    Elon Musk is a total fraud

    Although I'll also mention he does seem to be turning into a super-dick,( a small point, but I think he's a Yank now )But he'll be back in our good graces and in our hearts and minds when we get some more progress on that transport (I forgot the name of it) that he's working on beneath the surface of Hawthorne.

    Just leave any Thai kids alone and go short on any Musk stock , prepare to buy,buy,buy when we get some breakthrough on the transport.

    God, what will become of us when that slow news month of August appears on our Apple and Google apps? Next thing you know we'll be crabbing after that goof ball in the white house on CNN.

    I lost all respect for Musk after this comment. This is the worst thing you can label someone.

    Quite honestly I think he deserves to be prosecuted for slander.

    A lot of people who know him believe he may be an INTJ (Introverted Intuitive Thinker Judger) on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The INTJ tends to have a Spock-like personality and has difficulty in social situations understanding emotions and subtle nuances. They share a lot of traits with people who have been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome and/or Autism. They tend to be highly intelligent, efficient individuals.

    Another possible reason for his strange behaviour of late:
