This is the kinda thing that would normally go in the original Nobody Cares thread; but I refuse to sully that great thread with political stuff. But....now I'm sad.

Just like ten minutes ago I was really happy. Because while I was on social media looking through posts to a group about [thing I'm interested in], I happened to spot a very familiar name - a friend I played with often back in like first grade. It's a very unique name and the photo leaves no question about whether it's really him. It was kinda awesome to randomly come across a friend I haven't seen in years and years and years like that, AND learn he has a shared interest in [thing] besides. And then I click his name so I can check out his profile and more of his posts, and

%@&$ing
full
bore
Trump
loving
minority
hating
white
supremacist.

Man....this fog of depression.

Badword. Badword.

So I guess Elon Musk showed up at the Thailand cave on like the second-to-last day or something of the rescue with a tiny submarine, which the rescue coordinators rejected as impractical for the cave environment and also because they had a plan of action that they were already putting into effect. However, ever since then Musk has apparently been talking as if he was an important part of the rescue operation and has been throwing social media temper tantrums at people who point out he didn't actually do anything.

I can't find any news or government statements verifying this. All the available information said he came with the submarine and left it in the cave "in case it would be needed again" but that's it.

It may be because he is an insecure narcicist needing to advertise his "good deeds" (really, altruistic people don't generally tweet and shout about all the good they're doing - especially before the fact) but what is truly bewildering are all the adoring fans who think he's an actual superhero. WTeverF?

It's an easy mistake to make. Tony Stark as played by Robert Downey Jr. is partly based on Musk, and both Musk and his factory have appeared in the Iron Man films. And then his two main companies (Tesla and SpaceX) are actually trying to change the world for the better.


Being a space systems engineer myself, I'm not fooled. Musk is a smart and hard-working guy. But he's the front man for the thousands of engineers and technicians who do the bulk of the actual work. They should be getting more of the credit.

This headline sort of implies he wants to fix Flint's water issues.

Elon Musk Says He'll Fix Flint Homes With Contaminated Water | Fortune

It's deceptive though. He doesn't want to pay for replacing pipes. He will install water filters for affected households.

I get to come into work and monitor during the Super Bowl every year. In the past I had ordered Papa Johns to eat during the game. After that crap last year I ordered from a different pizza place this year.

Good riddance.

Like with the little submarine he built, Musk isn't wrongheaded here; I can't fault the guy for wanting to help and then trying. His problem is his attitude. He thinks he's an expert on everything and thus all of his ideas are valid, and he can't stand that notion being challenged.

Like with the submarine thing. The guy in charge of coordinating the rescue rejected his submarine once he actually saw it because it was too impractical. So Musk publicly belittles him and posts emails from a diver who had helped at the beginning of the rescue and had encouraged Musk's submarine idea in the conceptual stages, sight-unseen, as the "real" expert - because that guy had agreed with Musk. Musk is uncomfortably Trump-like in that way, and his very Trump-like temper tantrums on Twitter are part of that.
