  1. Yea... I'm actually kind of glad Facebook just keeps adding more evidence against themselves. Hopefully it'll help kill them off faster.
  2. I surprisingly didn't get that much opposition from Muskrats when I criticized Elon so you'll probably be fine too. Although my wording was much nicer than calling Musk a fraud even tho he very much is one.
  3. I haven't really looked into it yet but this cryptocurrency doesn't sound particularly exciting to me since it seems to be originating from China? I'd much prefer to see something like Arweave take off as it's main feature is that anything stored on it is essentially permanent which should make it difficult for governments to censor or remove content they dislike. Obviously this will be misused to share unethical content but I think it's ultimately better for society to a system like that than to not. Also disclaimer: I was given 0.05 AR when I setup my Arweave wallet b
  4. This is probably going to be a step toward making planes autonomous.
  5. Pretty sure radiation is a major concern once you're away from earth's magnetic field. This seems to list the amount of radiation that an unshielded interplanetary trip would receive but I don't really know how to make sense of the data and don't feel like looking it up right now https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_(radiation) If safety was taken into account, starship would use smaller and spherical tanks for their fuel rather than 2 really large tanks where 1 isn't even spherical.
  6. The only reason why those guys are fine is cause earth's magnetic field still protects them. Once you leave it (like idk, when you're going to another planet) most of your dna will get wrecked within a few months. At that point an orbital ring would make a lot more sense than a fleet of reusable rockets. As for casualties being expected with space travel, that's fair but what isn't expected is the launch facility not existing afterward. The soviet's N1 rocket was comparably sized to starship and only about 15% of the fuel exploded when it's launch failed resulting in about a 7kt
  7. I agree with most of what you said. Although from my understanding Zip2 was kind of trash and massively overvalued. It was a project from the dot com era after all and a lot of people made off with insane amounts of money for absolute shit from that bubble. Thanks for elaborating on the whole PayPal thing, I wanted to keep it brief so I glossed over a lot of the details in addition to straight up forgetting or simply not being aware of some of them. I think Eberhard is the wronged party in the entire Tesla situation but of course I wasn't there and am going off just who's version o
  8. I'm more so criticizing his narcissistic need to be the center of attention while the people actually doing the work get sidelined. Here just take a look at this:
  9. PayPal wasn't even called PayPal when Elon was there and the company was very different and way less functional than the PayPal we know today. Tesla was bought out by Elon using money he got for leaving PayPal (yea, from my understanding they basically paid him just to get the fuck out of there) and soon afterward he completely replaced the original founders of Tesla kicking them out of the company. Oh and there was a plan for the original founder to get the first Tesla Roadster off the assembly line but of course Elon kept it for himself and later sent it up into space. StarLink see
  10. The thing is, I wouldn't credit those successes to him but rather the people that he either employed or were at the company before, did most of the work and as payment got kicked out of the company. I'd highly recommend checking out this channel for a more comprehensive view of Musk https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgKWj1pn3_7hRSFIypunYog their sources seem really well researched and when I fact checked a few of them I found out they were indeed true so definitely worth looking into.
  11. Neat but I'm skeptical, a lot of musk's endeavors are extremely over exaggerated or hyped
  12. And this is why I don't use LinkedIn and can't stand it when people assume I have it or worse imply I need it.
  13. As stupid as many yahoo answers questions are, it's still disappointing seeing that service disappearing.
  14. Considering basically anyone can get a say in a DAO and nobody can just get ride of voters they disagree with it'd be more akin to telling a fully democratic country that they cannot govern themselves. Which is definitely still valid since that is the entire premise of international treaties, agreements, organizations, etc but there are limits to the level of oversight those organizations can do. Usually exchanges are not cryptocurrencies or even decentralized apps so I'm not sure why you're bringing them up? Besides, I'm pretty sure there are dozens of ways to verify an exchange isn't
