Well.... he's not wrong.

Elon Musk just declared that he's selling almost all his physical belongings and 'will own no house' and that he thinks Tesla's stock price is 'too high'.

I mean his second largest customer Chi-na has been shut since their New Year in February(corrected). I don't even know why he goes through the whole illusion of making cars anyway. He makes all his money off of carbon credits.

    Elon Musk has enough money to go full Howard Hughes ...

    So Elon Musk could be in a new place every night and he probably wouldn't run out of places to be.

    Given the limited range of his company's vehicles, he could drive as far away as twenty, maybe thirty miles at a time without even requiring one of his company's so-called "super chargers"! :-)

    I went sort-of Howard Hughes for a few years after I dumped my house, so I understand the potential motivation. Ultimately it's another asset that someone can attempt to wrangle out of you in a courtroom.

    Maybe he will move his residency to South Dakota.

    Elon Musk's attitude toward fascism might make it easier for him to hang out there if he wants to, plus there are some interesting parts of the legal code that would make it possible for him to hang his shingle there while spending up to 364 days per year traveling somewhere else.

    Now if he could make a vehicle that could get you from Sheridan, Wyoming to Council Bluffs, Iowa on a single charge, that'd convince a lot of people he isn't totally full of shit ...

    But yeah, the Teslas can't even get from Miami up to Clewiston without needing some intense love action from a "super charger" for a few hours, not that I'd expect there would even be one in the poorest part of Florida.

    "Sometimes I think that you just wish to piss off reality itself ..."

    "Off" isn't the right word. :-)
