    Or speed up and start a cult for the naive people that believe him. A free pair of Nikes and a white robe for everyone that wants to go on the Great Voyage to Mars with Father Elon.

    Keep going, guys. Matt Damon is just down a ways waiting for you and Elon with some fresh Martian potatoes.

    The hyperloop idea struck me as a high-tech take on the old "Johnny Canal" skit on Saturday Night Live years ago with John Malkovich.

    Everything may be legal on Mars but it looks like only attractive young people are allowed. I find this condescending. Are there elevators on Mars?

    Some considerations are being made to accommodate the older folks, right now whether to include oxygen on board for them is being weighed as a necessity, or a frivolous extra.

    There are elevators, but so far they are not fully functional because there are only one story buildings there presently. We have begun on the job training to fully develop the skills of the elevator operators for the day when the second floors are completed.

    We're working on that too. Last in, first out seems to be the most efficient, but there are people's feeling to consider you know.

    Yeah, it’s always fun to naysay someone whose stepping to a different drummer but have you driven a Tesla?

    I have! Model S. Best car I’ve ever driven.

    I would have a Model S today but they’re higher priced than I budget for when it comes to cars. Maybe once my house is paid off. In the meantime I may look at the Model 3. It’s a bit of a pipe dream for me but I might be able to swing a Model 3 once the preorders are filled.

    Remember Tucker and his cars? He was pretty unconventional too. I sure wish he didn’t get hamstrung by the auto monopoly and political corruption.

    Hey, I’m with ya. And we’d be brother in arms, but planets were meant for conquer. No matter what you believe. Human society is tribal in nature. We’ve proved we’re capable of mean and nasty things to each other. Unless there are non-humans involved, there will be a defector.

    Great product but the company has yet to show a profit. Also give me something I can take 350 miles through the desert with the AC on that doesn’t require stopping at Eddie World to recharge.

    It has nothing to do with Musk being unconventional. It has everything to do with Musk being a fraudster.

    I don’t think the jury is in on that subject. I mean sure, people have opinions but that’s not how it works. Has he been charged with fraud? What was it regarding?

    Tesla is on track to be profitable. I don’t know what the 3rd quarter results are obviously but the 2nd quarter results were losses of just a couple of dollars per share and each quarter is improving. The forecast is that Q3 & Q4 will be profitable. If so, that will be a red letter day.

    Don’t forget that it took Amazon many years to be profitable and isn’t Jeff Bezo’s the wealthiest man in the world now?

    By the way, I’m not defending him whatsoever for accusing that hero diver, who was part of the team that saved those kids of being a pedo or child molester. Musk needs to be sued for liable or defamation and the fellow he’s accused should be well compensated for that abuse but that has nothing to do with Space X or Tesla or the Boring Company or the Hyperloop.

    You're being generous. Their year to date losses are about $3 billion and their cash on hand to support further losses is $2.3 billion.
