So yesterday Elon Musk tweeted out this video
Basically an attempt to suck his own dick about how much more powerful his new Cybertruck is than a Ford F-150. I didn’t think much of it to be honest. In fact, I remember thinking to myself, “Welp can’t blog that. It makes Elon Musk look good” and continued about my Sunday as if the video never happened. But then a couple hours ago my guy Neil deGrasse Tyson came over the top and dunked on Elon with this tweet
DEAD MAN WALKING
In a mere 26 words Neil deGrasse Tyson took Elon Musk’s braggadocios video, stomped it out and left it for dead. The point of the video was for Elon Musk to blow himself and get pats on the back from his zombie-like followers but then my guy NDT (Neil deGrasse Tyson) came through and killed all the buzz with straight facts homie. That was fun to watch.
You wanna know how I know NDT is a real one? Because he’s not in the business of tricking people. NDT simply wants the Earth’s population to have a better understanding of science and how it can help us have a more successful future. Simple as that. NDT’s entire rise to superstardom was built on making the incredibly confusing world of science more digestible to the public at large. That’s it, that’s his whole deal and it’s a noble deal.
You know what Elon Musk’s deal is? The exact opposite of NDT. Elon attempts to trick the public at large with phony science so he can sell more ugly ass pickup trucks. Elon doesn’t care about real science or promoting facts, all he cares about is lying to people to line his pockets. However in this case, NDT sniffed out Elon’s truck trick and called him out for it in front of everyone. A flawless victory for truth.
