Comment Turne (Score 2) 296

I like his music, but as a human being I liked him even more. He turned down British knighthood by saying "I would never have any intention of accepting anything like that, I seriously don't know what it's for. It's not what I spent my life working for."

Let's actually remember the story: 1. The women in question actually had consensual sex with Assange 2. Then few days after they wanted to report how he didn't use the condom: in case one he took off a condom during the intercourse, and in the other case he tricked the woman into having sex without a condom. In Sweden this constitutes a rape. He denies both allegations, so it is his word against theirs 3. By now all possible evidence is gone and there was no sign of violence.

In reality, that also helps. He cannot promise a battery with infinite capacity. Cars running on gas need refueling too and sometimes, when I'm running low, I wouldn't mind knowing where the closest gas station is. Not saying Tesla and Elon Musk will solve the world's problems, but they are trying to solve one or two while still making some profit. What do companies Exxonmobil or Chevron do for us? Really? Endless wars for oil, oil spills and other environmental impacts, price fluctuations and possibly many other negative factors.

I know almost everyone here will totally dis this news and make fun of it. Whatever. I welcome free education for those who can't afford it. I was lucky enough to get university education, but not everyone is that lucky. Even if 20 people learn something from these Microsoft courses, and it helps them land better jobs, I will be happy.

Comment For all the people not appreciating Elon Musk (Score 1) 96

You say it's easy. Then why don't you go and do something with your lives? I only wish we had a few more of people like this. Yes, he is rich, and he is planning to become even richer. At the same time, he is investing HIS money into something he believes in. Only hope he starts looking into things like hyperloop, and to make that financially viable.
