    LOL… Make you wonder how many ‘death ray’ satellites Elon has hovering overhead!

    You can’t bet what doesn’t belong to you

    Just when I was in agreement with one or two of Musk’s recent stances he makes a stupid, vainglorious promise which he knows he will never have to carry out, with a stake which is not his.

    A typical Elon Musk stunt.

    Musk is probably the best in the world at self-promotion. Sometimes his stunts backfire but overall it works for him. Dunno how a 50 yr old challenging a 69 yr old to a fight can be regarded as laudable but hey, here we are talking about him again.

    This site nails it. Mennonite humour of all things. Hope the link works.

    Doesn’t the person challenged get to decide the type of combat? Knives, flintlock pistols…vodka shots…

    I’m not sure going up against Putin would be a sure thing for Musk.

    Traditional Russian duel with light lance, in this case the famous leadup to the Battle of Kulikovo, 1380.

    Musk understands that whatever Putin hits him with, it will hurt far less than when the Tesla shareholders finally figure out that self-driving ain’t likely to work this century … and they bought the most expensive white elephant in history.

    Putin has a black belt in stuff, or used to before it was taken off him. I don’t know about Elon, other than he once floored a 350lb champion sumo wrestler. Which is an achievement. I’d back Vlad though, KGB guys fight for keeps.
