    Elon, you need to wake up to the fact that UFOs are real and our world is a lie. Has been far longer than you have lived.

    1. David Stone says:

      Our world is a lie; that much is true.
      Humans are liars with low character, always trying to escape accountability.

      UFOs on the other hand…

      As much as I believe that with the billons of stars in a galaxy and the billions of galaxies, that it is very unlikely that we are the only life, or the only somewhat intelligent life, it is equally unlikely that any would have found us in our little corner, and then visit so unnoticed.

      No civilization on earth has ever gone to another without being noticed by the general public.

      It is unlikely that any civilization that could find a tiny world like ours and could cross the vastness of emptiness to reach us would:
      - be capturable by anyone with our level of technology
      - be interested in anything we have without just taking it
      - require secrecy from us for their agenda

      Ergo: no…

    2. Chris O says:

      Lies are the crumbly cornerstones of society. Without them things will fall apart quickly or so the powers that be assume and they are probably right. “You can’t handle the truth”…..In fact there are so many of them that people that haven’t gone into mushroom mode (keep them in the dark and feed them sh!t…)get confused about what’s true and what’s a lie. Hence the believe in UFOs.

  2. Andrei says:

    I think the most interesting fact is the Tesla Motors model line-up:
    Model S
    Model E
    Model X
    Model Y

    1. Aaron says:

      Glad I wasn’t the only one to notice that.

      I’m…
      too sexy for my car…
      too sexy for my car…
      too sexy by far!
