Chinese 737 plane crash caused by intentional act: US officials
The 737 that went down a few month ago was Chinaís first commercial aviation crash in 10 years, so a lot has been riding on the cause of the crash. If true we probably wonít hear much from China except that their 737ís will start flying again. Unfortunately one of the last big safety hurdles is still relying on the mental state of the pilots.

Business insider She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to interviews and documents obtained by Insider.

I know it’s all just powerplay bullshit, but he offered to buy her a horse… wut!?

Insider After Insider contacted Musk for comment, he emailed to ask for more time to respond and said there is "a lot more to this story."

"If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light," he wrote, calling the story a "politically motivated hit piece."

Smartest man on the planet and his response is ‘if I was a sleaze ball you would already know it! Which proves this untrue.’ and he’s totally going to get away with it too, oh dear god, this *is* the bad place!

Man famous for wasting time posting memes and getting into twitter feuds is certain people who work from home waste time and is demanding Tesla employees either spend at least 40 hours a week in office or quit.

Gizmodo“Remote work is no longer acceptble [sic].” The email—posted by Sam Nissim—was sent to “ExecStaff” on May 31, and explains that executive employees must be in Tesla’s office for a minimum of 40 hours per week. Any remote work must be done outside those hours. “This is less than we ask of factory workers,”

I always figured it would be a death due to lack of safety in the plant that would bring consequences down on his head. COVID deaths it is, then.

Apparently somebody vandalized the Mona Lisa? With cake? To protest climate change?

Here's my question:

Is the Mona Lisa that the public has access to even the real one? Or is it fake like the crown jewels or the Declaration of Independence?

I don't know for sure it is the real one, but he didn't actually smear cake on the painting, just on the protective glass. I guess he tried to smash the glass first with his fists, couldn't and just smeared the glass with cake instead.

Also, he was dressed as an old lady in a wheelchair before he jumped up and did his thing. :lol:

Not a good move. This will only increase bigotry towards the community of intermittently disabled transage women.
