Indeed. But his mini-sub! And I am sure not many, including myself, doubt abilities of his engineering crew, but come on.

There’s actually really no other way to figger it. All my NY pride melts away when I’m here; just too much good stuff up and down the whole state. drymount man, half of California is better than 40 states.


Yeah, but the flakes... it's too laid back. people don't get fudge done. Love visiting but couldn't live there while I am part of the work force.

I guess a logical conclusion: Elon Musk calls British diver who helped rescue Thai schoolboys 'pedo guy' in Twitter outburst
Elon Musk has called a British diver who helped rescue schoolboys from a flooded cave in Thailand ‘pedo guy’ on Twitter.

The entrepreneur’s outburst came after diver Vern Unsworth told Mr MuBut Mr Unsworth, who was instrumental in rescuing the school football team, said the vessel the SpaceX and Tesla boss invented “had absolutely no chance of working” because the inventor “had no conception of what the cave passage was like”.

In response to criticism from the diver, Mr Musk defended his invention through a series of tweets before adding: “Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it.”

After facing backlash for the comment, the billionaire added: “Bet ya a signed dollar it’s true.”sk to “stick his submarine where it hurts” after describing his offer to help with a miniature submersible as a “PR stunt”.

Mr Musk travelled to the Tham Luang caverns in Chiang Rai this week and presented the six-foot submarine – which he said could help free 12 schoolboys stranded for weeks inside the cave.

Mr Musk wrote on Twitter: “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.

“Water level was actually very low & still (not flowing) – you could literally have swum to Cave 5 with no gear, which is obv how the kids got in.

“If not true, then I challenge this dude to show final rescue video.”

He then added: “You know what, don’t bother showing the video. We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo. Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it.”

The chief of the rescue mission described the device as “not practical” for the operation, which required squeezing the boys through tight, jagged passageways.

See also Jersey, Carolinas, and MA coasts during hurricane season . . . houses being built on land meant to serve as natural barriers for storms/sea surge.

See also Houston, former grasslands turned to concrete developments, heavy rains come along and voila- floods. Harvey's come along and massive destruction follows.

Yerp. Drainage systems removed and or disturbed by development.

Neighbors flooded cos of the new houses behind them built up higher and had their drainage system slope down towards her property.

More run off from complexes also causing a bottleneck to the existing culverts as well. 30 mins more and we'd have been done for.
