Egocentric lefty is what he is.
2018-02-23 18:03
he's a lefty?
2018-02-23 18:04
any human with 140+ iq tends towards left , if he's properly educated. but elon musk is not classic leftie , like your idea of left its probably been induced in your brain by 4chan / media / missused internet in general.
2018-02-23 18:10
source?
2018-02-23 18:10
source of what ?
2018-02-23 18:15
"any human with 140+ iq tends towards left"
2018-02-23 18:15
not my fault that you have the education of a plumber.
2018-02-23 18:16
just insult and sperg out when someone takes a small shot at your bs statement typical <70iq behavior
2018-02-23 18:17
how can i prove you such a statement in a comment on hltv ? this is not a search google and get the data type of thing , this is the result of years of education. the easiest thing for an idiot like you to understand is to check some geniuses throughout recent or further history and make your own research. these are strong concepts.
2018-02-23 18:21
so you still cant guide me in a direction so i can research and you still insult me sorry i overestimated you i think thats <50iq behavior
2018-02-23 18:24
yeah , stay in school. thats my advice , and dont trust everything you see on internet , filter through your educated mind first.
2018-02-23 18:25
thats exactly what im doing here, i see someone saying some questionable shit so i dont just believe it, i ask politely for a source thinking this educated person can guide me to knowledge, instead i get insulted x-D
2018-02-23 18:28
because asking for a "source" for that statement is idiotic af , i dont think you realize. its like asking for an exact solution for fermi paradox.
2018-02-23 18:32
False. If these things are from your own experience then you could probably say something like, "as a memeber of Mensa, most people I meet there are towards the left." But saying that it is something like the solution for the fermi paradox, is idiotic and sad.
2018-02-23 18:38
the point is that its just an education opinion , it cant be like raw , cold numbers type of answer. think about it. politics is not maths.
2018-02-23 18:44
I'm a lefty and I still think you're stupid. Not everything has to be defined by a political label.
2018-02-23 19:07
and how did you deduce that i suggested that ?
2018-02-23 19:12
not calling you an idiot cause that would make me one, but your generalization is pretty vague.
2018-02-23 19:55
ofc its vague , as i said , you cant justify this kind of opinion in a comment on hltv and his "source" argument triggered me , but he was confused and i understand.
2018-02-23 19:56
while its clear that not all agree with you and not all are 70iq people, can you not consider the possibility that your opinion might not have a weight enough to be stated explicitly?
2018-02-23 19:58
its a well known statement , its not just my opinion , people way more smart and with hardcore expertise came to this conclusion. its human nature . when you're young and smart you tend to lean towards right and after you mature and get succesfull , you set your life well and achieve your intellectual goals , you wise up and lean towards left. and this is especially valid for very smart people with 140iq+ there are plenty of examples. this is the smallest summary i could give to you , of course there are plenty of details involved.

2018-02-23 18:40
Actually, he is correct, you can't assume something is real based in what you think, and when someone ask for proof you just tell that it is correct because it is, he is asking for an article or any study, it is falseability. Then you throw the Fermi Paradox as a falacy to complement your argument, it is much easier to prove a hypothesis about people with IQ>140 tends to left than the Fermi Paradox.
2018-02-23 19:12
jesus christ these kids on hltv.
2018-02-23 19:13
Not a kid mate, I know people with IQ>140, a very few tends to left, also your dichotomy starts when Elon Musk which created the companies PayPal, Tesla and SpaceX is left.
2018-02-23 19:16
" I know people with IQ>140, a very few tends to left" ok how can i argue with that ? if you know you "know".
2018-02-23 19:18
Than it isn't a proof, it is based on what you lived and in people that you know, it isn't a fact because you can't assure that all people with IQ>140 are left, you need to have a statistical sample and apply falseability, as you tell, I can disagree and tell that people that I know with IQ>140, are not left, we don't have a conclusion. But I agree at some point with you, we need to consider that in some countries Left and Right could have different meanings.
2018-02-23 19:23
" it is based on what you lived and in people that you know" this is completely false and its exactly what i tought , you misunderstood my whole justification. but hltv is not the place to have this discussion right now. this 140iq opinion of mine is anything but my own experiences , its mainly a psychological matter that occurs but not only that , its complicated.
2018-02-23 19:26

2018-02-23 18:44
you must be very smart with these 70iq stereotypes.
2018-02-23 18:45
hmmmm that means that communists are insanely smart... but i guess u are just a kid without any statistics trying to justify his own choice by placing himself in the highest group possible but whatever, u perfectly fit the hltv user criteria
2018-02-23 18:10
communism is radical left , idiot. extremes never work.
2018-02-23 18:11
extremes work quite well (though i hate extremes) and the examples of it floating in 20th century, go check out history
2018-02-23 18:15
i think you should check out history because both left and right extremes have been proven absolutely disastrous in 20th century.
2018-02-23 18:17
may be that is why the most powerful country today is socialist/communist (which is run by the one and only "Communist party of China")
2018-02-23 18:21
china is not the most powerful country and life in china is a hell for regular people in case you didnt know , compared to west europe for example.
2018-02-23 18:23
lol u might be a bit old fashioned but today China's people earning as much as people in Eastern Europe (for sure average salary is greater than in Russia already, checked it like half a year ago), and u can't really tell the working conditions right now since labour price is insanely big compared to 2010 when all US companies tend to produce their stuff in China, and look at their economy growth, they will fuck US deep in the ass pretty soon
2018-02-23 18:26
china and communism in general is a fucking hell , who do you think you're talking to ? people in china are working their asses of in shit condition for bear minimum , many of them get sick because of the unbeleivble pollution but dont confess because it's a "shame" , equality of chances is a joke there , quality of life in general is terrible. if you continue with these shitty baits im not gonna reply anymore.
2018-02-23 18:29
yeah i see your struggle and don't really want to offend u in any way, but the things are changing a lot, i was following the same pattern until i saw everything with my own eyes, have been there in july 2017 in Beijing and in terms of pollution it is total hell but people are quite happy and proud of their country and the wealth is rising with insane speed, so i thing the speed of development in China is the most important factor which can easily affect world economy
2018-02-23 18:33
people are "happy and proud of their country" because they have no choice , thats communism. most of them have no idea what western world is and freedom , they are educated from childhood to be like that. its fucking sinister. only when i think of their regulated "domestic internet" and it makes me puke and sad in the same time for those people. communism is like a big zoo. and in the matter of going there and see with your own eyes just recently i've been talking to a guy that studied there for 3 years and he told me exactly like you said that if you go as a tourist or just stay there for 1-2 months max its all nice and dandy but if you live there for longer you begin to understand their culture and system you become depressed quickly.
2018-02-23 18:39
well u are quite right in terms of subjective tourist view, and we cannot really understand Chinese philosophy and their approach to life but bashing communism so hard when capitalism is the same but with "money" when everything can be bought and sold including freedom and country (i am no communism supporter and from my point of view communism bounds the ability to be wealthier than others) but what can it really provide is the necessity to self develop and work not for money but for the idea which is a lot stretchable imo, but compared to capitalism it has it's own pros and cons and being biased in such a question is just nonsense. Still i gave u example of a country that is extreme left and it is very successful surrounded by "splendid" supreme capitalism heaven
2018-02-23 19:10
capitalism > communism any day of the week , proven. yet capitalism is also flawed but is the best system we invented so far.
2018-02-23 19:37
so people are proving that mix of socialism and capitalism is far more advanced e.g. Canada
2018-02-23 20:23
thats true but socialsm =/= communism , at least this modern socialism wich is basically still capitalism. denmark is another example. but canada has its own problems with so called "libtards" in many domains , wich are disgusting.
2018-02-23 20:28
regarding those "libtards" u are right indeed but the modern socialism is getting away from capitalism step by step, i guess we are gonna face the new model soon, well at least in this century, i mean all the freedom we got starts to work against us creating cancer in the social sphere that starts flooding economy sphere e.g. Murica and it's minorities that are going crazy, but according to law, government can't really bound it somehow, so we have to find other way around to make self-development worth something and get rid of useless rules in society to rationally rebuild it
2018-02-23 20:33
thanks for discussion though it is pleasantly to discuss such a complex thing with someone who takes it serious and provide some significant argumentation, despite we don't agree upon the topic i am still very thankful for the discussion

They can do that for all I care, a country with as big a debt as the US have... It's baffling how it's allowed to continue. And let's be honest... It's not the land of the free anymore.
2018-02-23 20:35
well i guess the issue here is that counties like this are the engine of the world economy and destroying them is only possible by a lot more powerful country that basically doesn't exist so they can easily increase their budget by increasing their debt printing their beloved green bills)

I suppose so. But I would assume China is getting there, right? Because we sorely need a new top 1. I don't know what that will do to the world with a leading China behind it, but currently all America is doing is digging a deeper and deeper hole, one that will eventually end with collapse.
2018-02-23 20:43
it is true tho that most geniuses tend more to the left. i can give u a endless list, but ofc he is not saying that every leftie is smart.
2018-02-23 18:13
that is basically the reason they were geniuses, since they invent and implement various stuff in our life, starting from science and finishing at the modern law, obviously that had to think towards vast changes, but that doesn't justify libtards in any possible way + i can give u endless list of right geniuses (i am not right btw but still i respect them like everyone else)
2018-02-23 18:18
not even 4chan says that he is a leftie too often. believing in democracy and equality does not imply left.
2018-02-23 18:10
this term has been distorted so much nowadays that its almost impossible to have a rational discussion about it.
2018-02-23 18:13
sure, but most discussions are an endless battle of rhetoric, you can still find places and people to argue without thinking/talking strictly about politics.
2018-02-23 18:15
the point is left cannot live without right and right cannot live without left. but the key is where you implement wich ideologies. this is where stupid extremist come into play and everything becomes a clown fiesta.

Me and my friend both had our IQ tested to get into a school, I tested 142 and he tested 156, yet we are still right winged because well.. that's the logical thing. Leftist = Emotions | Rightwing = Logical thinking
2018-02-23 19:51
"Leftist = Emotions | Rightwing = Logical thinking" these are the brain's emispheres description not the political leaning , genius. 142 my ass.
2018-02-23 19:54
If leftism is so SMART according to you, why does socialism; the system of the left, fail every time ?
2018-02-23 20:06
i never said "leftism is so SMART" and the answer for your question you will find in the library not on hltv.
2018-02-23 20:08
You said High EQ -> Lean towards leftism that kind of means that being leftist is the smart choice So you basically did say leftism is smart but not in those words..
2018-02-23 20:09
no , you're an idiot as i tought from your first reply. stay in school.

How? He is not an idol anywhere near as much as people make him out to be. Ecars are still not environmentally friendly, not even close. He is pushing for colonization of a planet with practically 0 atmosphere that would direct a massive amount of earth's resources to even sustain... He is literally just a man with money and is putting it everywhere in the name of things he does not actually comprehend.
2018-02-23 18:09
if manufacturers stop making ecars then they will never be environmentally friendly, it takes a LOT to refine technology like that everyone should be pushing for colonization of a planet. its literally the goal of life to preserve itself for as long as it can, if we get rekt by a meteor or a super volcano we die so its very important that we look to the skies

Another planet yes, but not mars. Not mars even in a billion years. We do not have the energy output at all to be looking up at any stars, we have a lot more to learn HERE before space is even an option. They stack a car with batteries constructed from gigantic lithium quarries. Powered by an electric grid where in USA is powered 33% by coal and fossil fuels being the next highest percentile. There are many countries spearheading energy production towards green, take Germany for example. Merkel IS AN IDOL to look up to not this overhyped business man... Freaking Doctorate in Physical Chemistry then goes on to lead her country and progress them into the future the way she did... China IS the world's next super power, USA will be far behind them very soon. Xi Jinping is absolutely insane with how much he is investing in this country and the progress they are making. Out of all the new research I read about 75% of it comes from Chinese universities they are literally spearheading everywhere already... They have made gigantic adjustments since Mao's rudimentary Communism with implementing many different aspects of capitalism. You look at many different countries and the people that reside in them and what they are ACTUALLY doing to further the progress of the world and Elon Musk will finally appear to you for what he actually is. A fucking fraud.
2018-02-23 18:39
they are all politicians though, Elon is a private person. no one is saying he made everything himself, but without him spacex and their innovations wouldnt exist. he put his private savings he made from paypal and others to the first (unsuccessful) falcon rockets. if that first falcon that landed failed, he'd maybe be a nobody today. hes just the perfect CEO for a company like spacex thats why hes so popular

He launched a rocket, this has been done many times before. He put a car in space. Its really not that amazing, friendo. It has progressed the world 0% since doing so. He has changed nothing. Understand that. These "politicians" however, are changing things. For the better.
2018-02-23 18:47
Just out of curiosity, how exactly is Merkel changing anything for the better?
2018-02-23 18:50
i dont know much about politics seems like a shitshow so i dont follow it, but Merkel doesnt seem to be doing too well bringing all these people that leech gov money i think youre either baiting or calculating too much, its not all about physical inventions like rocket boosters landing, hyperloop or their contributions to solar panel technology, its also about inspiring competition which is crucial for civlizational progress. Musk has been talking about that a lot, he wants another space race

There is absolutely no reason for a space race. Try to think of reasons for me, because the actual scientists here cannot come up with something beneficial other than a place to dump money and get nowhere. We are not talking about Merkel's immigration platform here I don't understand why you even brought that up.
2018-02-23 18:57
because its suicide long term, sooner or later a cataclysmic event will happen on earth and if we dont have colonies on other planets or self sustaining space stations we will vanish its best to start early. also spacex is a private company, its not NASA that is a leech that made extremely expensive and inefficient rockets

We need to reach near light speed to even consider intergalactic space travel. If they were to even attempt the closest habitable planet it would take close to 500 years minimum. Rockets are not the future my guy hate to be the bearer of bad news.
2018-02-23 19:06
we might not need a planet like earth to live, we could set up a colony that is either extremely efficient or completely self sustaining in the solar system and live slowly in a closed environment of course rockets right now arent able to bring us to planets light years away, but technology is constantly refined and if we dont quit then sooner or later we're gonna develop technology that can carry us to the stars. the travel doesnt have to be faster than light or just 1 generation, FTL travel might not be possible and we might have to use something like a EM drive and many generations on a massive space ship to get to other stars

But that is just it, its a desperation attempt. It is before everyone dies here we set up a colony "there" and leave it as a last ditch effort to save humanity from extinction. Our future current direction leads to bleeding earth dry and we accept this. That is why China and Germany and so many others are so key right now. They are really investing to try to change this future. It is possible even while mr. business guy has given up, its just rather unlikely.
2018-02-23 19:18
it might be just a small and hopeless colony put on a planet just as a last ditch effort to preserve humanity or it might be a elaborate colonial city on another planet developed over many years thanks to collaboration with earth, no one knows, thats why it best to start early i dont know much about governments and their contributions to clean energy but i know that americans invented the solar panel and that solar energy is cheap now thanks to their contributions mainly in the private sector

Still better than the rest of Silicon Valley, who create useless apps and sites revolving around ads. So i don't get the hate for Elon Musk, who is doing ambitious things.

Ambitious is a massive overstatement.
2018-02-23 19:07
that wasnt "just a rocket" but you're stupid af , i followed your rhetoric and you're clueless. but not clueless in the actual data , clueless in the way of not having a healthy vision towards the future and not understand the concepts. your thinking process is like a mediocre jew banker.

Sorry dude, but rockets are not the future of space travel. Once you leave orbit you have your initial velocity and direction and that is it, little bit of fundamental physics for your uneducated mind.

2018-02-23 19:04
who said they are the far future of space travelling ? his concept is the recycled rocket so the space travel is democratized and it opens the doors for many future cheaper projects in our neighbourhood wich is the next logical step. we will never travel and colonize the universe in this human form anyway because physics doesnt allow us since even light speed is too slow , you should know this.

Until those theoretical scientists develop the magic man of space travel, the "long predicted by sci-fi but never proven possible by actual science", the warp drives, the worm holes, the FTL, the cold fusion or even as you stated preserving the mind in robotics, it is not worth looking up to the skies. That is why so many countries are not investing in things like NASA because when the U.S. government asked them to justify their work they couldn't. They got cut from the budget because there is no justifiable reason to consider exploring space right now. I hate to be the Negative Nancy but this is a fact you need to accept.
2018-02-23 19:23
So you got nothing?
2018-02-23 19:26
they got cut because idiots like you , im sorry. when you will understand our human nature better maybe you will get a glimpse of our future as a civilisation and then you will probably get wiser regarding the issue.

"Idiots like me" are the people who are doing actual research that leads to a better future for earth. Not looking up to the stars smoking blunts going "maaaaaan starrrrrs maaaaan." Hi, Chemist here nice to meet you. Lithium ion batteries will be replaced one day because of my friend's research on ionic liquids. Thanks to him no more lithium quarries destroying earths surface. One day my school's research on catalytic reactions turning carbon dioxide into a sourcable chemical will be published and return earth's atmosphere to a more healthy level for the environment. One day someone's work on directly converting solar energy into usable energy by us will be published making solar panels a thing of the past. One day we might even research enough into cold fusion and solve all problems with energy on earth. Then can focus on the stars and continuing colonization throughout the universe. You have to understand no matter what we do now for innovations in space travel, they pale in comparison to research that might actually save this planet from its demise.
2018-02-23 19:40
this planet has no future , it may be 200 or 200mil years. if we want to survive , looking up is the only way.

Not even close, we don't have anywhere near the energy to look to the stars. We need to delay earth's fate as long as possible for progress to be made in the right direction. However, this work being done by elon is little helping delay the inevitable. Classical propulsion is for short range trips, there is nothing short range that could really make sense for us to colonize.

Mars is a dump with no active core. To think that humanity has a better chance there than here is laughable.
2018-02-23 19:50
It would be interesting to see how U.S government is being convinced to continuously fund 600 billion a year to it's military. They must really love those guns, at least more than those rockets, unless those rockets happen to crash on some supposed terrorist.

The military is the biggest waste of money I have ever imagined. I have constantly voiced my whole life that there is no need for such a military in the world we live in. It devours resources that could be used elsewhere and it is frustrating that so many people consider it so important in my country.
2018-02-23 19:47
i dont think any american would want the chinese "ultra-productivity-plan" applied to their social system, and i think statistically the american population is also happier with their life. bit off topic but i in my opinion this "china-phobia" and attempt to stay the worlds leading "superpower" is a bit misguided, especially if its achieved by subsidizing the industry sector without a care for the enviroment like trump is trying to do right now.

You are absolutely right with your first two sentences. There is no real reason to challenge them in industry the way Trump is doing right now. Thing is China is caring about the environment finally and my country is not. Super agitating to a person like me...

abusing the name of tesla to legitimize himself. why would he offer the world internet? what would be the economic logic for his company to do it? i don't trust it lol. 5G incoming and everything will be connected to internet (smartdoors/smartfridges/...). which in that case would be a bad thing. this free internet can be a good thing if it is truly free however. and it's good that he makes rocketlaunching cheaper however it's totally not needed for mankind at this point. better fix the problems on this world before leaving it.
2018-02-23 18:18
cheap rocket starts are absolutely needed for us, were running out of resources and its good to refine rocket technology so we can mine asteroids quicker
2018-02-23 18:26
yes i did not take that in consideration i just meant more that we as a species need to learn how to live in balance with our planet that we are living on. if we gain access to asteroids and still didn't learn a sustainable way to use energy it might run out. this might be very stupid to say; there might be gorrilions of asteroids which can be mined. still it's more like a general attitude. our imbalance with our environment has been spiraling out of control for a while. we need to learn to live more sustainable. be it earth, mars, everything is finite. that's what i meant that it is not needed at this point. we have a lot of philosophical issues to solve first. and musk may be at the frontier of sustainable energy but everybody else need to apply it in daily life.
2018-02-23 21:27
Remember when back then when genius were being born, there were always the ones who hated them and called them mad. Musk will be in our history books.

I can't get his plan on Mars. Space traveling is so harmful to humans' body. ISS astronauts have to deal with a lot of health problems due to lack of gravity I can't even imagine the side effects of traveling 1 year through space. Plus Mars hasn't anything to protect us against radiation, maybe if he can develop a hybrid between machine and human in the future that would be something plausible.
2018-02-23 18:39
this post... "health problems due to lack of gravity" haha you made my day friend!
2018-02-23 19:04
he's right dummy lack of gravity causes severe damage to your brain and bones

? It has been very documented. I've read this book Endurance by the astronaut scott kelly and he tells exactly those problems they need to face and he compared his body changes to his twin and there are so many problems lol. Also, you won't travel with ISS which has the capacity to fit workout machines and there's a supply ship coming to them every month. They need a LOT of mental and physical preparation and work to be able to be there. And my point is Elon calls that as a "normal" thing which everyone in the future will be able to do without saying that will damage your whole body.

if we get off this planet, elon will be the one who finds the way to do it
2018-02-23 19:10
Elon is really good guy.Guy is really trying to do our life better.
2018-02-23 19:12
if he manages to safely send people to mars and establish a colony there it would be safe to say hes the biggest man to ever live
2018-02-23 19:12
Hopefully he find a way to change the world for better, but he's far from doing anything really relevant yet. Elon is on the right track tho and I expect more people to follow, put money into the service of humanity and not the other way around.

MUSK = A strong-smelling reddish-brown substance that is secreted by the male musk deer for scent-marking and is an important ingredient in perfumery. So when we go near a girl with good smelling perfume we actually want to sex a male musk deer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were attracted to his scent!
2018-02-23 20:07
Sorry what. People are actually critisizing elon musk? GG hltv, most mature website on the internet
2018-02-23 19:58
2k18 and human attitude did not change a bit. Great inventors were always hated in the past also, so is Musk today. There are so many haters and "smartass" ppl who don't have better things to do but talk shit, "blabla this is pointless, this is impossible, Musk is just a fraud bla bla. Even if he won't succeed, the dedication of this man already changed the world, cause he will be a role model hopefully to many other talented scientist, who will finish his work. Musk will be in our history books for sure... as a man who took actions instead of just seeing all the difficulties and say "well, this is impossible, we are fucked". His actions for sure will accelerate humanity's progress to sustainable energy, better infrastructure, and maybe even to achieve multi-planetary living.

that guy's an absolute chad, a madman, and a savage (just have to watch any of his interview) he became millionaire during his teen years, and he's trying to make the world a better place, by creating ingenious invention one after the other, he even thought about making the space a touristic attraction, and think about sending people to mars, which back in the early 00's wasn't something even thinkable of, most people were seen like crazy, but now it's only a matter of time before we send our first couple of people on the red planet.
