Broadcast a Tesla FSD failure to get out of fighting. Throw Tesla under the bus (or fire truck) to benefit Musk's ego and ego corporation X.
Mark Zuckerberg isn't shying away from his supposed cage match with Elon Musk, though he wants the world to know it probably isn't going to happen – and it's not his fault. The billionaire pair have been feuding since June over Zuck's then-rumored launch of Twitter competitor Threads, which was unleashed in July. Musk, you may …
"While I think it is very unlikely, given our size difference, perhaps you are a modern day Bruce Lee and will somehow win," Musk added.
Whilst size may be an advantage, that is all it is: An advantage. If you have no idea how to fight and are unfit, your smaller, well trained opponent will still cream you.
I trained in Jiu Jitsu while I was at uni (about fifteen years ago). Two black-belt senseis ran the class, one of whom was on the lower end of five feet tall. Funnily enough, when demonstrating new techniques, he usually picked the taller, beefier students to practice on. He was kinda known for making that point - that just because you were bigger didn't mean you were better.
Aside from the obvious small-man syndrome, he was a pretty decent guy. But you couldn't pay me money to take him on if he was serious.
I've always found it bizarre and pathetic when I have to remind myself that this person speaking like a wannabe-edgy teenage troll isn't just a grown man, he's a grown man in his fifties, FFS.
Musk is a prime example of the manchild who never grew up because he never had to.
Purdeys at 20 paces - you could be blind, deaf, have a dicky ticker, a dodgy back, mostly brain dead and as long as their seconds pointed these nutjobs in each other's direction should have the desired effect. LoMF appears to be the x-meister's ailment.
There was an old BOFH where Simon says that his method for choosing a vendor is to lock the two finalists in a room. In the room there's two chairs, each with a brick under it. Last vendor rep standing wins the contract. If Twitler wants to claim he needs surgery for a MMA-style fight, just give each of them a brick and lock them in a cage together. Whatever the outcome it should be entertaining.
.. if it was a match on who could spout the most BS in a minute.
I'm no fan of either, but I have a feeling there wouldn't be much time for advertising if this match was ever televised.
The only reason I can see that Zuckerbeg wouldn't pound the big mouth into the ground early in round one would be to keep it entertaining for the audience. There's a rather large difference between wandering into a dojo every so often and being good and fit enough to actively fight in competition.
Sadly, in this case there are no lawyers that can force him to make good on his BS, it's not
Who didn't see this for what it was from the moment it was proposed? A 50-something man-baby crying for attention.
On account of being someone who can fire people on the spot, and that meaning they will generally back down when confronted by him, Twitler has (very incorrectly) conflated that with being an alpha male. However, when he made the mistake of challenging someone who doesn't give two fucks who Twitler is because he's the boss of his own little empire, Twitler quickly arrived at found out status.
As much as I would enjoy watching Twitler get his ass beat like the redheaded stepchild of an abusive alcoholic, I guess I'll just have to settle for his self-own and subsequent public humiliation.
I must admit, at first I thought the idea of two CEOs fighting in a cage was incredibly unseemly and totally unnecessary. And in many ways, it still is.
However, everytime Musk opens his mouth to spout yet more BS it's made me realise that watching someone (anyone) BATTER THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF HIM until he begs for it to end, live on TV/internet and recorded for posterity, would actually be quite wonderful.
"If we get lucky and Zuck … actually answers the door, the fight is on!"
So Elon admits it will be pure luck if the FSD works and gets him to Zuck's house... Nice to know he has confidence in his product..
I dont know why, but I'm having a mental image of the car pulling up at the wrong house, him rocking up to the door spouting his usual bollocks, and the door opens and a Mr Burns like character opens the doors, listens to Elon for a minute and then simply says "Release the Hounds". Followed by a shot of a not very fit Elon trying to run down the driveway to the waiting Tesla with Hounds biting his ass...
Musk has a reputation as being a man who ran a reasonably good tech company into the ground in record time. He furthermore has form for being mercurial, impulsive and greatly disinclined towards rational cogitation.
Remind me again about what this good reputation of his is at risk again please?
Whilst you're at it, tell me where I can rent time on the microscope you are using to view the admirable bits of Mr Musk.
Like 8 years olds?
Pathetic. You’re grown men. Offering someone out to the grassy bank (as it was outside my school) for a scrap is pathetic and juvenile. A but like Zuckerberg himself really.
And I have to be honest, all the baying and hooting and hollering about making excuses etc (yeah so it’s Elon Musk so he’s never going to win a popularity contest around here) itself is ridiculous and juvenile, like cage fighting itself, somehow trying to legitimise the act of knocking another person senseless.
Go ahead and smash that downvote button. Watch me not care.
