I'm into Latin at the moment and the phrase "Nullum unquam exstitit magnum ingenium sine aliqua dementia" springs to mind.

I would change the last word to insanire.

Tesla is by far the finest electric car ever invented. So he deserves alot of credit for that. Name a better electric car. The Prius was first. But it is a hybrid and not nearly as nice a car. 

 

The tax credits were a federally funded program that made alot of sense. It is now finished. Still in place for some other electric cars, but not the Tesla. 

 

As a taxpayer I would rather have my taxes used to subsidize electric cars than buy missiles used to kill Yemeni mothers and children. 

Little correction Musk not have invented electric car, for finest yes but peoples work for him, Musk not have invented noting, many peoples believed is a genius, he only another Ponzi.

Musk I doubt she cared about saving the boys, the only thing that he wanted was to cultivate her false reputation as a genius for his business and above all for his stupid shareholders who fell into the most classic Ponzi trap.

Because he wasn't a diver that's the fact divers risked their lives he didn't big diff.
Call him local Caving Expert, Adviser, Helper if you like but not diver.

Talk about splitting hairs? I suppose you would like to see it in brackets in the account of the rescue:-

 

" Diving expert Vernon Unsworth was there but on this occasion he didn't actually dive"

Never understood the cult following of this guy or why people are branding him a genius. All of "his" ideas were invented years ago, including electric cars, rockets that can land and trains running in vacuum tubes (something invented decades ago, and which he hilariously enough said he wanted to file a patent for in an interview).

 

And no, he didn't successfully popularize electric cars, or his company wouldn't be hemorrhaging money every year at the expense of tax-payers' money.

His company is only surviving due to "green" grants and tax reduction benefits.

With your great knowledge and brain you have done what with all of these “ideas” invented years ago? And what tax-payer money is funding Tesla?  
 

Yes businesses do hemorrhage money and that is why we have investors and investment bankers and Risk-Reward companies like Amazon, Federal Express, Uber, airlines, etc. And why some people are successful investors and businessmen and end up worth lots of money while others barely survive in Thailand and throw stones at the risk takers who make it big.

Well Vern took the feel good story of the year and used his spotlight moment to <deleted> all over Elon's spirited and expensive efforts to help out.

would have been a feel good story thing if it were a thought through proposal taking into account the local circumstances and in consultation with the people on, or under, the ground .
In my humble opinion, as the invention offered concerned a device not suitable for the situation, it was a distraction of the rescue team from their efforts, with the goal to brush up the image of the person by offering with pomp and circumstance the unneeded and in this case useless device.

Surely, given the stress that the rescuers worked under, a somewhat undiplomatically worded but in any case rather frank opinion was ventilated.
The response does not deserve comments even, well below standard in any decent society.

As I read today, it seems the Brit went to court with a 75.000 compensation demand.
I say good for him, not out to get rich, but just not accepting that a person who thinks he is an influence worldwide, with an probably inflated ego ( I am not a psychiatrist so do not quote me on that ), thinks he can get away with any misconduct at will.

Also hope the Judge will award more,
and would not be surprised if Mr. Vern would donate to a good cause, just to underscore his point to the famous person..

$75k and punitive damages from what I’ve read. Hopefully Vern gets a nice chunk just for grief is nothing more...

 

Musk should meet face to face with Vern offer a sincere apology 

then ask Vern how much will help correct a wrong... Musk double it

and walk away learning a lesson... hopefully

Did Musk actually earn his money through his businesses making a profit or did his money come from other investors and governments giving him the money in the hope that his ideas eventually make a profit ? ?

I understand quite  well enough. Point being to the other poster when one hurls an insult as in me  calling him an ASS he responds, what the response is  is  irrelevant, its to point out  youll get a response.

No, theres a huge difference between Vern making rude comments and Musk making allegations of law breaking .

  Its legally Acceptable too be rude, its against the law to falsely accuse someone of breaking the law

No he didnt .

 

PayPal was established in December 1998 as Confinity,[17] a company that developed security software for handheld devices.[18] PayPal was founded by six persons:[19] Max Levchin, Peter Thiel, Luke Nosek, Ken Howery,[17][20] Yu Pan and Russel Simmons.[19] PayPal was developed and launched as a money transfer service at Confinity in 1999, funded by John Malloy from BlueRun Ventures.[21][22]

In March 2000, Confinity merged with X.com, an online banking company founded by Elon Musk.[23] Musk was optimistic about the future success of the money transfer business Confinity was developing.[24] Musk and then-president and CEO of X.com, Bill Harris, disagreed on this point and Harris left the company in May 2000.[24] In October of that year, Musk made the decision that X.com would terminate its other Internet banking operations and focus on the PayPal money service.[25] In the same month, Elon Musk was replaced by Peter Thiel as CEO of X.com. The X.com company was then renamed PayPal in 2001,[26] and expanded rapidly throughout the year until company executives decided to take PayPal public in 2002.[20][27] Paypal's IPO listed under the ticker PYPL at $13 per share and ended up generating over $61 million.[28]
