    You know what else is shocking?

    Explosions!


    With a test like this, success comes from what we learn, and today’s test will help us improve Starship’s reliability as SpaceX seeks to make life multiplanetary
    -- official comment by the company

    To be fair, this did fare better than the previous one. Rocket science is not easy. But to also be fair, it was supposed to be a 90-minute flight, as Reuters and other sources say. It was three minutes.

    Imagine promising something would last 90 minutes and it only lasts three, ladies. It'd be like, I dunno, something you bought for $44 billion being worth $1.5 billion.

    Even if that was the case, it's a valid claim.

    Given the glimpse behind the curtain we have been given with the shitshow that is Twitter with Musk actively at the helm, I think you are giving him way too much benefit of the doubt. I'm willing to bet he probably doesn't know that, or for that matter a lot of other things that actual competent CEO's should know.

Media Matters only found out whose advertising was touching that contact. It's only fraud if it's false. They could have told Apple and IBM to their faces and can admit that proudly on the stand. No lie, no fraud.

    Now I supose some gutless no-balls coward pussy troll -- like Musk or Trump, not our always honest and genuine posters here of course, heavens forfend -- were to say "there was hardly any white supremacist content!" my response would be "well, what is the correct amount, because I believe it is zero". If the FDA said "we found cyanide in Elon Musk Breakfast Cereal1" Elon Musk seems to be suing saying "it wasn't a lethal dose of cyanide I added to my breakfast cereal, I'm suing the FDA because they got mothers to stop giving the cereal I put cyanide in to their children".
    That's a bad analogy.

    Cyanide occurs naturally in some food-stuff, and there are in fact allowed doses, especially for apricot kernels and almonds (and especially in Africa cassava).
    In the EU the limits are found in https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-cont...20230326#M41-2

    In the US it also seems that cyanide sometimes is used to eradicate pests by spraying on on citrus plants (that children also eat), with similar limits.

    I'm shocked, SHOCKED I say, that someone that grew up in South Africa during the Apartheid, living in a household that used slave labor in emerald mines, would have racial supremist viewpoints and agree with people like Hitler. /s

    That hasn't stopped some of the site's major advertisers from pulling out.
    You know, those advertisers would have definitely been still there if they would have, you know, removed the offending content than leaving up but labeling it something else. If it still there, it still gets tied to the advertiser.

    Ahh yes, something someone said that was targeting Jewish people specifically and blaming them for stuff against other races somehow isn't antisemitism because of reasons. Well, we all know who the antisemite is here.

    Also, the post doesn't say that extremist Jewish people targeted Christians/Catholics/Muslims or any other religious group because of their viewpoints in history, which would be a more truthful statement Abrahamic religions have all targeted each other throughout history. It states that they are actively targeting WHITE people with their rhetoric. That is what makes it antisemitism. It is blaming the problems of that affect white people onto the Jewish people when there is no evidence, in any way shape or form, to support this nonsense.

    Hmm...

    When I saw the tweet, I thought it made sense to me because I actively ever saw in the 2000s and 2010s of Muslim immigrants coming in and people are so surprised they don't view other races as kinder. More or less, that was my idea but I was always assumed it was Jewish people doing this because that is what I heard. I assumed Elon Musk was perpetuating it and it was truth... No idea what white people did except they've been getting shit on since the last decade.

    The other issue I have with all this is that the place I grew up was known for its racism. Different races always had issues. I heard nothing but bad things blacks did to Asian people in Scarborough 1-2 decades ago... My parents had to deal with ridiculous levels of racism all the same.

    Last note was that I couldn't figure out what was antisemitic about it. People were calling Elon Musk Hitler which annoyed the fucking crap out of me. People have to be so damn dense to not realize it. No idea about the other stuff that is going on with twitter or Elon Musk.

    But that's not "everyone" being affected by racist attacks, as per what you said. If you're going to be a stooge you could at least remember your script.

    Im not a lawyer, but thats sounds like like "its not a problem because it rarely happens (supposedly) but how dare they report it did happen"
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    I am assuming you're a lefty and are among the peoples calling for the whole white supremacy nonsense and insulting it even though there are more news counterparts showcasing white on black crimes but never the reverse, and the reverse happens more often. No idea what script shit you're on about.

    Elon isn't all that wrong, though a awkward response but for his entire shtick to be caled antisemetic is ridiculous. I don't know what is wrong but people called insulting George Soros also antisemetic is also strange.

    I like that twitter allows more free speech. The more of it the better. More of it means more of society evolving organically, not hyperbole of nonsense of whatever your side on and supressing other voices to fit your own sense of moral superiority. I hate it whenever I see that. I grew up with more muslims that said more evil things about jews than people on the right or Elon Musk ever said. It's disgusting to hear people insult anyone to fit whatever mold you want to.

    I had to look up what Sealioning was and this is what I could find:

    Sealioning (also sea-lioning and sea lioning) is a type of trolling or harassment that consists of pursuing people with relentless requests for evidence, often tangential or previously addressed, while maintaining a pretense of civility and sincerity ("I'm just trying to have a debate"), and feigning ignorance of the subject matter.[1][2][3][4] It may take the form of "incessant, bad-faith invitations to engage in debate",
    You people are strange. I was legit asking for the quote Elon used and was heavily disappointed that people are calling it antisemetic but unless I find someone legit straight up saying terrible things about jews to the point where they call for their genocide, it's pointless.

    When I heard of George Soros a year ago, referenced by Joe Rogan or Destiny, I was thinking to myself "man what a scumbag billionaire asshole" but now he is apparently funding for socialism to occur in Spain too... I bet you peoples will call it antisemetic for insulting him.

    I am brown. I grew up with pretty much every race and heard much worse shit growing up. If you think what is being said is anything bad, I question the suffering that has occured in your life.

    Also, I never trying to debate. People call any form of media a place where false-information resides is damn pointless. Politics is like rooting for ones own sports team. Nothing more.
