It's not hard to see what a fame hungry dickhead Musk is, especially after that stupid stunt creating space junk to advertise his cars.

Maybe he should use his money to clean up the plastic raft in the Pacific which now covers an area twice the size of Texas.

Why don't 'u' believe it? Is it because the earth in the background was round?

So what do you think the payload, or testload in this case, was?

That is crazy, but it shows how the brain creates the world around us rather than reflecting it.

It is a peculiarity that the more worldly we become the more easily we can be fooled if that worldliness can be used against us. I've heard slight of hand magicians talk of the movement cues they put into their acts that are lost on those too young to make the assumptions that an adult would.

Nice one. It reminded me of this one, which I find a bit relevant to people trying to keep their eye on the ball while trading:

I first saw it on a Derren Brown years ago. Despite trying me level best to remain sceptical, I find his stuff fantastic. While searching for the above in a Derren Brown version Youtube threw out this one, which I found quite interesting in our common context. Even if it is a bit long-winded:

About a month ago I got distracted in the evening (when I should have been doing some marking) and watched hours of Derren Brown's stuff. The man is a genius and presents his shows in such fascinating and wonderful ways. I love how he firstly announces it is all just trickery and there's no such thing as magic but by the end, even though himself and you are both sceptics/non-believers the only logical answer to how he did some things is he is a magician; just must be.

Contains some really good psychology concepts that made me convince myself that watching hours would in turn help me with some of my trading ideas :lol: Any excuse.
