Banks are starting to back out of financing Elon Musk’s buyout of Twitter. Because apparently being worth $300 billion or so means you can’t just pony up $44 billion yourself or something.
Apparently if he does go through with it without using the bank’s money, it means he’d have to sell Tesla stock. But at their current value he’d have to sell so much stock that he’d lose ownership of Tesla.
It’s all confusing how a man with the most money in the world actually doesn’t have any money, but Jesus I want this scenario so much. Imagine him losing Tesla for Twitter of all things all because he’s a dumbass that lets memes do his thinking for him.

And with his recent tweets offering “”“solutions””” to the war in Ukraine and the China/Taiwan situation, god forbid he ever goes into politics because he’d be a complete disaster.

Yeah, his “enlightened centrist” view on war where he basically says ‘Russia/China wants all of Ukraine/Taiwan. Ukraine/Taiwan wants them to have none of it. Maybe they should have half?’
And then tosses up ‘People who support Ukraine are NPCs’ memes when people rightfully call the dumbass a dumbass for that dumbass take.

Stocks are not money. Trying to sell stocks works differently from selling yachts and mansions. For example, if you own “a billion dollars” worth of shares in one company, you would get FAR less than a billion when trying to sell them, because you selling would a) make people assume you think this company has no future and b) lower the value due to the high supply.
A person who is “rich” because of creating and owning a company is significantly less rich (and more useful) than someone who is “worth” the same but has their wealth in fiat, gold and various investments.

“Enlightened Centrism” is a derogatory term to people who believe in the Golden Mean Fallacy.
But yeah.
In other news, Trump is now saying that if he becomes president again (which somehow isn’t a declaration of him running again) he’ll gut the National Archives and fill it with his own goons.
I’m sure that won’t lead to the literal rewriting of history. Probably in crayon.

Also known as the Middle Ground Fallacy.
A belief that the correct solution to any problem is always in between whatever the 2 opposing issues are.
While compromise is nice in a vacuum, it doesn’t work when at least one side is demonstrably wrong.

I hope he runs for the 2024 presidency. It’ll be funny watching him drain conservative votes that could have gone to Ron DeSantis and the fallout that would ensue in the Republican fanbase.

Side note: if he tries to back out of the deal again, using his newfound lack of financing as an excuse, and the judge finds that he was responsible for the banks bailing, she can force him to sell his Delaware-based assets to fund the buyout.
Side note 2: Tesla, Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (d/b/a SpaceX) are both Delaware corporations.

He created Tesla, which not only makes electric cars, but also spooked other car manufacturers to make more electrics. This is definitely good for the environment.
His public behavior and nonexistent work-life balance in his companies definitely aren’t good, but at least he did something good for the world, unlike many other celebrities.
@Commune
Speaking of other celebrities… WTF?

To my recollection, he didn’t found Tesla. He bought it out and retired the original founders to obscurity with NDA’s. We could probably give him credit for his slick marketing helping to popularize the marque, but the company wasn’t his from the get-go.

Have you guys heard about a news that more than 400 bettors won the lottery (₱238 million/$4 million) here in my country? LOL!
People are now saying this is a coincidence of a universal proportions. Others say this was rigged.
