      If you don’t have any skin in the game, the filing reads hilariously.

      [url<]https://www.scribd.com/document/389617063/United-States-Securities-and-Exchange-Commission-v-Musk[/url<] [quote<]24.According to Musk, he calculated the $420 price per share based on a 20% premium over that day’s closing share price because he thought 20% was a “standard premium” in going-private transactions. This calculation resulted in a price of $419, and Musk stated that he rounded the price up to $420 because he had recently learned about the number’s significance in marijuana culture and thought his girlfriend “would find it funny, which admittedly is not a great reason to pick a price.”[/quote<]

        Oh snap, it all makes sense now!

        Sometimes the line between visionary genius and madman is very thin.

        For being so smart, Elon Musk sure is stupid.

      [quote<]"Corporate officers hold positions of trust in our markets and have important responsibilities to shareholders," Steven Peikin, co-director of the SEC's Enforcement Division, said in a statement.

        Indeed…

        I imagine there are a lot of folks who think they are the next Steve Jobs who are really just the next egotistical a-hole.

          Or in Jobs case, both. 😆

            Agreed.

            Unfortunately it’s much easier to emulate the negative than the positive.

            Steve jobs, the next Steve jobs, and egotistical?

    M+kb on Xbox 1 week be great for the controller dorks who still think controller is superior for fps.

      • EzioAs

      To be fair, I don’t think it’s the majority of people who think that way. Some people just prefer to play using a controller more, there’s no need to call them out for it. I know I prefer to play using a controller. Even on PC, I play most games using the controller with exception like RTS or similar stuff.

        I’ve met people who are convinced that controllers are the superior control scheme for cross-platform play. One of my friends always argued this until he ran into a dorm-mate who was using some KB/M->XBox hack to play Halo with a mouse to annihilate all comers. He was really quiet about it after that.

          • Srsly_Bro

          He greatly underestimates the ignorance of some gamers. Ppl use controllers in csgo, and they aren’t outwardly trolling, just playing as anyone else would. Controller is inferior in fps. It is better in racing games.

            • EzioAs

            Of course mouse+keyboard is downright superior in FPS if you’re playing competitively. I’m just saying not everyone feels that way and most people I know and play games with just prefer to have a good time, and that can be had with peripherals other than mouse+keyboard.
