Top 12 amazing things Elon Musk did in 2022, it’s his year
Ah Elon Musk, this infamous between a billionaire, an internet troll and a dangerous megalomaniac. The kind of scary and super villain aura, but the good thing about him is that you will never get bored. Every week, he brings us a different craziness, and we can say that in 2022 he hasn’t been idle in terms of silliness. As a result, without much difficulty, I have given you a monthly peak of his weaponry. This man is like no other.
January: Elon Musk wants to pay a 19-year-old man $5,000 to close his Twitter account
A Twitter account called @ElonJet tracked (and still tracks) all of Elon Musk’s private jet trips, and it’s telling that he does a lot (a lot) of the trips. Inevitably, because once the climate is going down, it’s a task, and Elon Musk doesn’t like to be shown that way. So he offered the account owner $5,000 to delete it. Of course, the 19-year-old asked 10 times, because it is quite difficult to offer $ 5,000 when you have hundreds of billions in your pocket, but Elon refused. It’s a bit weedy, man.
February: we learn that his company Neuralink mistreats monkeys
Neuralink starts with an idea that’s both terrifying and perhaps life-saving: implanting chips in people’s brains to control devices remotely. On the one hand, we can’t help but think “but that’s Black Mirror oukoi?? », and on the other hand, we admit that it can help paralyzed people, which is pretty cool. But the really bad thing is that Neuralink experimented on monkeys, and apparently many suffered martyrdom and some of them died. Helping people is cool, but killing poor monkeys is not.
March: Elon calls his daughter Exa Dark Sideræl
He and his partner had this child in secret and decided to give him this first name that smacks of interstellar travel. Actually, after its big brother called X Æ A-12, it is almost easy to wear.
Remember that in March, Elon Musk still did good: he helped the Ukrainians resist the Russian invasion thanks to his network of satellites. You can’t blame him for everything either.
April: Elon Musk announces he wants to buy Twitter
We knew he had the $40 billion needed to take over the platform, so we were all a bit shocked. Why? Because a megalomaniac man like Elon Musk who owns a platform where all the politicians on the planet express themselves is dangerous. The man can establish his own rules and favor some of them to make friends in high places who, then, will favor his projects (like planting chips in human brains). Do you see delirium?
May: Elon Musk suspends his offer to buy Twitter
I’m not going to lie to you, at that time I didn’t quite understand. If I believe the newspapers then, he wants us to give him more information about the fake accounts hosted by the platform (because the more fake accounts, the lower their value, of course. ) In short, don’t let’s settle down. on top of it.
June: Elon Musk wants to fire 1 in 10 Tesla employees
While the box employs nearly 100,000 people, Elon has a “bad feeling” about the economic future and wants to reduce its workforce by 10%. Getting rid of bad feelings from the boss is tiring. Well, in the end, he said he just froze the hiring, but it’s still a pain in the ass.
July: Elon Musk abandons Twitter acquisition
Here again, I don’t really understand why, but as I come to the future, I can tell you that there will still be twists and turns in this affair.
August: he calls for more babies and more gas and oil consumption
If you didn’t know that Elon Musk didn’t give a damn about the environment, now at least you do.
Come on, two for the price of one: Elon Musk also tweeted to say he would buy Manchester United before retracting saying it was a joke. This guy is super funny.
September: Elon Musk criticizes “The Rings of Power” series for strange reasons
In two tweets, the Tesla boss thought so “Tolkien is turning in his grave” then said that the male characters in the show are all cowards or jerks and the only brave and kind character is Galadriel, a woman. Actually, what bothers him about the series of lord of the rings, it is mainly that women are better than men. It’s a bit silly of him, when he just tells the truth: this series is boring to death.
October: Elon Musk buys Twitter and formalizes his first rotten project
Lo and behold, our worst nightmare came true. The man finally bought Twitter and decided that his first step was to pay official accounts for $20 a month. A man of genius.
November: Elon Musk created paid certified accounts and fired a good portion of the workforce from Twitter
Big month for Elon, who started by breaking the principle of the famous blue dot that makes it possible to make visible certified accounts by paying it at $8 per month and accessible to everyone who wants to spend money . Later in the month, he just let the key people out of the box before addressing a dilemma among employees: either they accept to work like crazy, or they go broke. Surprisingly, many chose to look for new jobs, putting the platform in jeopardy. The manager of the year.
As a bonus, know that old Elon just decided to tweet by posting a picture of his bedside table. The answers are magical.
December: Elon Musk brings back Christmas
Fuck the motherfucker.
