When will it be time to short Tesla?

This article popped up on my feed on the weekend:

More hilarious facts about Tesla from a hedge fund manager who’s short the stock.

All companies in a capitalistic system need to earn profits and those profits need to be attractive relative to the amount of shareholder capital employed. Tesla has never earned an annual profit. Along with digital currencies and Unicorns, Tesla appears to be caught up in a gold-rush-fever type of emotional response, both from a “they will take over the world” and a “they will save the world” combination of hopes, instead of their owners looking at the numbers …

… As anyone with automotive experience knows, profit margins are far higher on bigger, more expensive cars. Therefore, the faster Tesla makes Model 3’s, the more money they will lose.

I’ve been saying this for a while now. Elon Musk is the biggest fraud the world has ever seen. He recently approved an increase in his annual salary to $5 billion per year, more than every other CEO of a top fortune 500 company combined.

And this is the problem that I have with shorting Tesla stock – the timing.

Comment of the week – The podcast.

I’ve been quite satisfied with how the podcast is developing. Now that I’m used to the format and the length of time the process is coming to me more naturally. Some of the feedback that I’ve been getting backs up this line of thought.

From ckfarmer on episode #80 of my normal podcast:

This was a superb podcast, I wish this stuff was around in the 1990’s before I got married. This episode contains real truth that all men should hear. Anyway, I will certainly be teaching my son all about my new found knowledge as he gets into his later teenage years. I have benefited myself from this knowledge, but only in the last few years.

Working out – In the zone.

Saturday morning is my big day at the gym. I go there at 8 in the morning. At that hour in the town in Holland where I live, nobody is moving around if they can help it. The gym is nearly always empty which is why I am there at that hour. I need to get in the zone.

I can’t get completely in the zone on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, my other gym days. I’m tired from a full day at work, both physically and mentally, and there are a lot more people at the gym which makes it hard for me to concentrate. Mondays and Wednesdays are the days that I grind it out. I use them to set me up for Saturday. On Saturday I want to hit it out of the park. And the only way that I can do that is by being in the zone.

Their tyranny is garbage.

The prog’s war on Anglo-Saxon culture via garbage recycling has just been stepped up a notch in my old home town of Perth.

Face your waste, Perth: would a clear bin make you throw out less?

Could see-through rubbish and recycling bins be what it takes to make people take responsibility for just how much they throw away?

A new environmental campaign is changing the face of the waste conversation by making people look at their waste and what they are putting into landfill.

Clear rubbish bins will replace traditional green bins in some local streets during the next eight weeks to draw attention to a new campaign to help people reduce their rubbish and recycling loads.

The campaign Face Your Waste, to be launched by Mindarie Regional Council next week, hopes to encourage a culture of waste minimisation and get people thinking about where their waste goes beyond their rubbish bin.

Apparently it’s now a ‘waste conversation’. You thought that you could just throw out your garbage but that wasn’t good enough. Then you accepted 5 different recycling bins and were guilt tripped into spending your every free moment picking through your own trash to separate it for no good reason at all. But did you think that it would really end there? Silly you.

The Greasy Pole podcast #3 – The Holy Vagina episode.

The Great One and and I discuss the holiness of vaginas and how modern society demands that they be worshiped.
Also, how can I make Rollo like me?

Your tattoos are horrible.

A reader asks for my opinion on tattoos.

Tattoos.. what do you think of them? Is this an acceptable feature for the modern man?

In a strange coincidence I had been contemplating a post on this topic only this week. Then I forgot about it, but now surreptitious chance has pushed it screaming to the fore for your benefit.

Let’s begin with the easy part of the question: tattoos on chicks.

Friday hawt chicks & links – The evil trannies edition.

The hawt chicks & links thread is back after a one week hiatus due to yours truly not getting my shit together. Over at The Other McCain there is an interesting story about trannies grooming young teenage men online. They encourage and coerce them into posting photos of themselves dressed in women’s clothing, and then they use this evidence to blackmail them into taking sex change drugs and becoming their boy/girl/thing toys. One of these victims then committed public suicide on Youtube.
This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Homosexuality and its offshoots are deviant behavior, which will attract deviants who commit even further deviant behavior under the homosexual umbrella. I called this post the evil trannies edition but that is actually a tautology as there are no “good” trannies. To be a trannie is to be sick, perverted and evil. Now we let these monsters near our kids.
