I agree. Total Twat.

 

As an engineer, a designer, and dare I say it, an inventor, this self promotion crap boils my pee pee at times.

 

I call it the Dyson effect. Other enginners will know what I mean.

 

The mini sub would not have worked because of Archimedies principle. No way could it's bouancy be equated to allow it to travel on a level plane in an enclosed tunnel, with varying speeds of water flow ( Bernoulli equations), varying head of pressure, turbulance, turbidity, and a few sharp rocks just for the sake of it.

 

The Brit cavers have been acknowleged as the best cave divers in the world. The guy in Thailand knew them. They went to help. The two divers, and the guy who called them, should all get Knighthoods in my opinion.

 

This was a fantastic international effort. Thai, Ozzies, Americans, Brits, and Chinese with the pumps.

 

It was a superb example of an international team working together with combined skill and expertese.

 

Yeah... Musk can stick his rocket sub up his arse.

That's reported everywhere. As rescue diver respond to Musk with ''he can stick his tube where the sun doesn't shine'', Musk re the diver with ''you are pedo ...'' over the Twitter. 

 

Musk apparently deleted his Twitter rant, but media all over the world report on it. Even RT.

I doubt this guy has ever set foot in Thailand one time in his life, it's not exactly a paradise for billionaires.

i think the diver responded a bit harshly. i would have said it's  a nice bit of engineering with good intentions but not really suitable because of x, y and z. 

 

it's what made elon musk angry. elon musk must be admired for his drive and vision, but his personality is as ugly as the back of a fridge.

 

the cave diver should sue if an apology is not forthcoming

Elon Musk apologises to British diver he called a 'pedo'

Elon Musk publicly criticises Thai cave diver

Elon Musk has apologised to the British diver he branded a ‘pedo’ in a Twitter tirade after he rejected the tech billionaire’s submarine idea pitched during the Thailand cave rescue.

Mr Musk launched an attack on Vern Unsworth, 63, who played a key role in the rescue of the 12 boys and their coach, in a since deleted tweet.

Taking to Twitter once again, Mr Musk said: “as this well-written article suggests, my words were spoken in anger after Mr Unsworth said several untruths and suggested I engage in a sexual act with the mini-sub, which had been built as an act of kindness and according to specifications from the dive team leader”.

Mr Musk was referencing a thread on question-and-answer site Quora which attempted to explain Musk’s involvement in the Thailand cave rescue.

Mr Musk continued, tweeting: “Nonetheless, his actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologise to Mr Unsworth and to the companies I represent as leader. The fault is mine and mine alone.

Mr Unsworth had said he was considering legal action over Musk’s comments, telling 9News “I’ll hopefully get a copy of the Tweet. It’s not over”.

He also said the Tesla founder can "stick his submarine where it hurts" and it had absolutely no chance of working.

Elon Musk calls British hero diver ‘pedo’

“It was just a PR stunt," Mr Unsworth said.

While the rest of the world was celebrating the successful rescue, Musk's offensive comments have cast a shadow over Mr Unsworth.

“There is no justification. At the end of the day we were here to rescue these young boys,” he said.

He also said the submarine wouldn’t have been able to navigate the complex tunnels of the Tham Luang cave complex, adding Mr Musk was not needed and was asked to leave.

Mr Musk didn’t take the criticism lying down and launched a furious attack on the experienced diver after responding to a piece in the New York Times which called his effort "commendable".

Dr Zeynep Tufekci, a tech expert, wrote how Mr Musk became frustrated when rescue crews said his contraption was impractical for the task at hand.

"Mr Musk’s desire to help was commendable," she wrote.

"But when the head of the rescue operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, declared that Mr Musk’s contraption was impractical for the task at hand — a task that had been completed, at that point, by some of the world’s top cave divers — Mr Musk responded with irritation," she wrote.

Mr Musk then responded to Dr Zeyenp's peice and tweeted: "Never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand (sus) at any point when we were in the caves

“Only people in sight were the Thai navy/army guys, who were great. Thai navy seals escorted us in — total opposite of wanting us to leave.”

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
