It's weird to me that people don't openly talk about how Elon musk is a fraud when he's done stuff like the child submarines, the plan for fixing traffic by turning the ground under cities into swiss cheese, and the cars that have the hardware for autonomous driving "already installed." They're not even good lies.

I'm guessing it's because he's one of the richest people in the world (depending on how successfully he's juiced his stock via Twitter) and the legally actionable word "fraud" isn't good to throw around when people have money and time

As others have pointed out, more Elon scams:
The Covid ventilation machines that don't work and actually spray particles around, the expensive and inefficient pneumatic tube system, the rockets that continually explode on the launchpads, the plan to clutter up space with an astonishing amount of junk satellites. It just goes on and on.

@InternetEh I thought he was cofounder and it's what took him from "could retire" to "stupid rich".

@BalooUriza wonder if he's actually cofounder, or just bought up rights to call himself that after it got successful like he did tesla

@DangerDyke Actually founded before PayPal was founded, and bought PayPal, a less successful competitor, for the branding. Kinda like how Showbiz Pizza bought Chuck E. Cheese for the branding.
