    Sell Tesla to Tata?

    Don't even have to change the "T" on the bonnet.
    They already seem to own most of Europe, if my trip has been any indicator, so, sure.
    Every time you post something about Europe at large I always wonder where this mythical Europe you see is because it's not in most of Europe.

    The newest train in the UK, the Tata London Heathrow express stands as exhibit one.
    This is possibly the dumbest post you've ever posted. The company I work for does designs for trains that are built by a Swiss company for the northern UK. Does that make the UK Swiss?

    If so can we form a much cooler customs union with Switzerland please?

    yep.

    they're in automotives, steel, chemicals, comms, food/drink and starting to snap up some pretty interesting properties. a lot of presence in the UK in particular, be interesting to see what they've said about brexit.

    They're also not far off the biggest IT outsourcer in the business. Accenture have twice as much revenue, but pretty much the same number of staff and work across more than just IT outsourcing. TCS are cheap as fuck and as a result are fucking everywhere. I don't think I've done a gig with a client in the last 18 months where I haven't been working directly with TCS.

    They are, however, fucking shit.

    Rolling Stone publishes a glowing interview with Elon Musk entitled "The Architect of Tomorrow".

    Some choice quotes:

    “I’ve been in severe emotional pain for the last few weeks,” Musk elaborates. “Severe. It took every ounce of will to be able to do the Model 3 event and not look like the most depressed guy around. For most of that day, I was morbid. And then I had to psych myself up: drink a couple of Red Bulls, hang out with positive people and then, like, tell myself: ‘I have all these people depending on me. All right, do it!’”
    “Is there anybody you think I should date? It’s so hard for me to even meet people.” He swallows and clarifies, stammering softly, “I’m looking for a long-term relationship. I’m not looking for a one-night stand. I’m looking for a serious companion or soulmate, that kind of thing.”
    Musk shakes his head and grimaces: “If I’m not in love, if I’m not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy.”

    I explain that needing someone so badly that you feel like nothing without them is textbook codependence.

    Musk disagrees. Strongly. “It’s not true,” he replies petulantly. “I will never be happy without having someone. Going to sleep alone kills me.” He hesitates, shakes his head, falters, continues. “It’s not like I don’t know what that feels like: Being in a big empty house, and the footsteps echoing through the hallway, no one there – and no one on the pillow next to you. Fuck. How do you make yourself happy in a situation like that?”


    Bonus:

    “In order to understand the essential truth of things,” he theorizes, “I think you can find it in The Onion and occasionally on Reddit.”

    Afterward, he asks excitedly, “Have you ever seen Rick and Morty?”

    No wonder Elon Musk is a poster boy of so many neckbeards. He is just like them.

    You should take Elon's advice and have a thicker skin.

    Elon Musk discovering money can't buy happiness.

    Maybe paying his workers fairly will fill the void in his life?

    I for one believe that this interview is a truly magnanimous gesture by Elon.

    I mean, after it has become clear he can't sell him a Tesla, he's still giving Don everything he could have wanted.

    This is fairly typical for you, but to make it clear to everyone else: this is completely out of context. Tesla had fired three employees as a result of the incidents referred to in the lawsuit long BEFORE the suit was filed. No-one was suggesting employees be thick skinned about the deliberate use of racial epithets.

    And heres the full email:

    Thanjs for posting the whole email, because it is even more cringeworthy than just the excerpts.

    Racist attitudes at Tesla, especially in the engineering departments, are well-known in the industry, since Tesla tend to self-select for arrogant assholes other companies would not touch with a ten-foot pole.
