    I unfortunately didn't until I looked at this thread again on my PC. Still didn't change the fact he's a joke though.

    All billionaires are ridiculed, it helps the working class forget the obscene level of wealth and power wielded by these individuals.

    Lol layoffs at SpaceX. Aren’t folks thee already underpaid for the industry, and isn’t it rated the most stressful company to work for? A 10% staff reduction will surely help matters.

    It might help matters for those who are getting laid off... They can probably get better pay for a non meme company.

    Why would anyone hire burned out rejects from the Cult of Elon? It's not like Boeing or Lockheed-Martin are struggling to find applicants...

    Despite what you think, the actual engineering of spacex is very advanced and most people leaving the company are in high demand. A good burnt out employee is very easy to 'fix' and they will love you forever for it.

    Well that's obvious, but who really wants to be a head in a jar ruling Mars?

    I had to google what happened in Flint. From what I have googled it was excessive lead in the water from lead pipes.

    Also from Google, UV filters are used to kill bacteria in water.

    I'm going to have to assume something I have read here is wrong.

    Yep, seems fairly dumb to me. AFAIK UV filters won't do shit to lead.

    Good one guys, you just lost your tickets to Mars. No room for nonbelievers.

    If all the believers left for Mars, Earth would be a nicer place.

    Seriously though, did I miss something? I can't imagine the school would take the donation so well if it was the wrong solution.

    This marks Musk's second effort to help Flint with water contamination issues. In July, he tweeted an offer to fix the water system in any house with lead levels above FDA guidelines.

    He spoke on the phone with Mayor Karen Weaver the next day about ways he could assist the city.

    There is also a good chance that the reporter writing the story didn't include all the details about the filter system. Ultraviolet sounds much cooler than the rest of the filter package.
