    Why the hell would anyone use a super overpriced domain service like Hover?

      Elon was recently talking about getting the new Starship price down to a few million per launch, mostly the cost of fuel at $2 million.
      That's a rocket with close to 10x the payload of the Falcon 9.
      That would be very disruptive, if he can pull that off.

        This video did age well. Superlike. Posting this comment 24 hours before launch of third Starlink deliveries.

            I hoped the video to explain something basic about economy but sure it wasn't about it.
            Fells more like a tesla/spacex clickbait propaganda than anything.
            "Imagine a product 10x cheaper, how it would affect the market?" now completely forget about it because the rocket market is not elastic and I"m about to spend the rest of the video talking about "it's cheaper if you do it yourself".
            and musk wants to go to mars.

                  Since capitalism is the cause of world poverty (giving all the money to a few rich men), when Ebola or Lassa or Marburg or Dengue or Machupo, or others, come to USA or UK or anywhere, I’m telling you to blame every capitalist! We must end world poverty to stop the spread of all diseases! We need EQUAL WEALTH NOW!

                    You're inequality at 04:21 about the price being below $100/kwh is wrong. It should be written as <$100/kwh, not >$100/kwh that indicates the cost is more than $100/ kwh.

                          The year is 2150. Humanity has finally established a galactic interstellar community that lives above the earths atmosphere. There is a spaceship every now and then travelling to and from the space station, with destinations set to stars light years away from our home plant. Inside every spaceship as well as every corner of the space station is a familiar photo. Below every one of these photos are the words, 'In loving memory of Elon Musk'

                                It's sad that 2.3 million people subscribe to a channel that doesn't understand the first thing about economics. Talk about disseminating false information.

                                      You know you're showing launch vehicles made by everybody *_other_* than SpaceX beginning at 1:20? 🤦‍♂️Pfft. Were supposed to believe that you guys are producing and presenting videos about things you've done journalistic reporting to become knowledgeable about? Really seems as if you're simply taking content professional journalists have worked on writing, rewording them to dodge abject plagiarism, and narrating it over images and video produced by others. 🤨 But, hey, you even get to shill additional in-video advertising on top of it. Clever, indeed, but pretty sleazy.

                                        Musk is God’s gift to the modern world. He’s probably the most important CEO alive today. Aside from Jeff Bezos.

                                            Umm so we just aren't mentioning the huge subsidies Musk gets from the US government to keep him afloat? Look it up. Also try researching "exploding Teslas", they're actually more dangerous than Pintos ever were. I don't understand the cult of personality around this man. Did you see him smoke herb on JRE? Total light weight.

                                                        This is not about economics, its about Musk's biz model which is "business" not "economics". Econ is the study of how economies work. Biz is the study of how to make bank. Also, the robot-voices playing host make the whole thing, I dunno, eerie. I could not finish this. Tech bros are creepy.
