From the Expanse series. Inners are those from Earth and Mars, felota means 'feces' (i.e. shit) and ke is derived from 'que?' in spanish and is used for 'agreed' or 'right' (as an interjection)

Is $420 a joke?

At $420, I might buy it.

Looks like the SEC is curious about who Musk secures the financing from because of it was just blowing off steam, he’s likely guilty of market manipulation.

Popehat's response to Musk on why the cave diver hasn't sued him over the "pedo guy" tweet is awesome:
Popehat wrote:Maybe he didn't sue you because your petty, cretinous swipe at him was hyperbole, insult, and toolbag buffoonery, not a provable statement of fact that could be defamatory.

Keep striving for Mars; maybe you'll find someone there who thinks you're normal.

While Musk is smoking pot on air, he’s firing employees for finding trace amounts of THC during testing, despite it being doctor prescribed drops.

If Tesla goes belly up, and at this point I'd say it's a dead company limping, and the resale value of Tesla cars goes to zero, I'm going to get a not insignificant amount of glee out of that.

I'm going to have a bit of schadenfreude myself to see Musk brought down. But the impending fate of Tesla pisses me off in several ways: I think it is an interesting concept and that electric cars show promise, but Tesla is another example of envirohype outrunning reality; I really hated the way that dealership lobbyists in various states conspired against Tesla's marketing plan; The company itself seems to be another example of a trendy stock getting pushed because 'it's cool', not because of fundamentals; there appears to have been gross mismanagement of Tesla - I wonder what an Alfred Sloan could have done instead.

You know how they say "never read the comments"? As crazy as Elon Musk's tweets are, 90% of the responses are at least as crazy. Lots of "You are a GENIUS! You are the FUTURE of HUMANITY! My family already has FOUR Teslas! We want SPACEX toilets in our house!"-type stuff.

There's a lot of Elon Musk KoolAid drinking going on. People who say "I put all of my money into investing in Tesla!" It's a total cult.

I'm in L.A. right now for the annual National League of Cities "City Summit" conference, and today Elon Musk came to speak to us.

He actually seemed less weird in person than his public/online persona would suggest... or maybe just more *understandably* weird. When L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti asked him how he came up with the idea for rethinking tunneling technology, instead of doing what any seasoned public speaker would do and giving a short, pithy sound-bite response, Musk tried to actually explain his thinking process -- in depth -- which made for a halting and unfocused talk, and bored the pants off of most of the audience, but actually made me understand the guy better, and respect him a little more.

As a public speaker, he's a brilliant engineer.
