House of the Dragon is more realistic than Game of Thrones because the Targaryens actually look inbred
Good to hear. Tesla needs to diversify from China. The opening of Giga Texas and Giga Berlin help, but Giga Indonesia would be awesome. It’s funny because it’s the 4th most populous country but it gets almost no news coverage whatsoever. https://t.co/XLmrjdQ6jI
Huge giga news: Tesla’s next factory may be coming to Indonesia! This is a great place to set up production and can service all of south east Asia. Tons of commodities and labor - a huge growing country of future EV drivers. This also lowers the reliance on China. $TSLA

The fun thing about discourse is he will say something like "I don't know if what you are proposing actually achieves your stated goals" and people will get unhinged levels of angry at him.
A plurality of global top-tier artificial intelligence researchers come from China. But a majority of top-tier AI talent works in the US. Immigration is America’s superpower.
Goals can hurt progress: “Earth that warms by 2.0°C is profoundly more habitable than one that warms by 2.5°C - but the present findings warn that people may check out when 1.5°C hits. By lumping a 2.0°C world and 2.5°C world as equally futile, people risk eschewing vital goals.”
On Twitter, everyone either things cops are fascists or teachers are groomers but in real life these are both highly regarded lines of work.
Quebec, which has tons of cheap clean hydro, is one of the few places on earth where I will give anti-nuclear views a pass.

It's nice to see that we are no longer making the case that "American exceptionalism" means exceptionally foolish.
The message of the Sneetches — opportunists will create and exploit ethnic divisiveness for their own gain rather than the advantage of the people on either side of the divide — is genuinely more threatening to conservative power structures than anything in more radical texts. https://t.co/2uHpfBs7BC
An Ohio teacher, who was reading The Sneetches to her Grade 3 class, was abruptly cut off by an admin when a student said "It's almost like what happened back then, how people were treated. Like, disrespected. Like, white people disrespected Black people.” https://t.co/VnsgaHsGZk
