So how long until Elon gets the Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal treatment?

Meh, tip how you want. You wanna tip $45, go for it. Just don't expect to get it back and don't point to being "in the service industry" as a reason, because very few, if any, of your fellow service industry compadres are going to do the same for you.

Funny Chip tipped 6% on a very good day and we all agree that is unsustainable and imprudent. That speaks to the razor thin win rates that we live on.


I tip a lil extra to the dealers that are/referred clients. I wonder if that is an ethical violation (Law has a medieval aversion to kickbacks).

It is looking more and more like a grift. The cycle is:

earnings (losses really) are bigger than expected --> Elon announces something shiny and over promises something else--> TSLA inevitably misses Elon's mark and stock gets pushed down--> Elon announces something shiny and loop starts over again.

Today is remarkable. He tweeted that he MIGHT take TSLA private at an $80 premium from current stock price. He mentioned that he has arranged the funding already so it just needs to be worked out with shareholders. This reeks of stock price manipulation which is generally a bigger issue with penny stocks. Observers have stated that him saying he has arranged funding could be problematic with the SEC.

Elon Twitters like Donnie Drumpf. Anytime someone says anything untoward about TSLA or heaven forbid actually shorts the stock he goes into full blown AIDs like attack mode. All CEOs hate shorts but his responses to them are over the top.

Interestingly, his current short foe is David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital who also frequents various poker high rollers.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Anyway, I've said before that I love the product but think it's laughable as an investment at current valuations. Their balance sheet is an utter train wreck.

But there are many fanboys and they seem never to turn bearish so who knows.

Time will tell...some think today's outburst smells of desperation.

Elon has always been trash. I'm pretty sure there was lead in the water at PayPal which gave every founder brain disease.

Almost threw up reading $45 in tips. Chip, when the cards go south try and keep in mind the dealers aren't going to be turning their toke boxes upside down to rebate you when you get your c**k coolered off.

Thanks for this.

After your earlier post I didn't some Twitter googling bc lol at owning an account. Saw he made a comment about taking the company private at $N but didn't connect the dots.

Do dealers make as little hourly as waiters/waitresses? Are they supposed to derive the majority of their income from tips?

Serious questions.

Read it in college, good book although it was a really bizarre time since it was height of Afghanistan and Iraq war mania, freedom fries and all. All the right wing ****heads, myself included, got into some very heated arguments in class with the more liberal students.
