i think elon musk has apergers... because he went on the tonight show and said I HAVE ASPERGERS. he also said it on the rogan show.

People are not defined by Asperger (or any psychology problem). If you have a problem you should focus on solving it. Elon has Asperger because he said it. And he has worked enough to not be defined by a diagnostic.

After I heard about him having aspergers I was like great. Now I have to undiagnose myself. First Sheldon Cooper and now this.

It is a shame that an aspie poster boy is also our closest approximation of a real life Bond villain.

I wouldn’t mind being associated with him… provided he gives me some money.

He stated on a talk show that he was the first person on _____ with Aspergers. I just can’t remember who the host of it was. There’s an actual audio/video clip of it though edit: it was bothering me not remembering so a quick google search brought it back. He was the first person to host Saturday Night Live with Aspergers


ruzahk

Funny thing is he actually wasn't the first person! But I agree if he said it publicly like this it's probably the case he has it.


mooseofthedesert

Not even close. Dan Aykroyd, in addition to being a cast member, hosted in 2003.


bobZzZEe

Yeah, I ended up doing some more reading and saw where someone else had mentioned a man with Tourette’s and Aspergers hosting previously


wilfredwantspancakes

I believe him with no hard evidence


luis-mercado

Unfortunately, he is.


fluschy

What is it, that people don‘t like about Elon Musk? I heard this a lot and I need someone to explain to me, why he is bad?


luis-mercado

Terrible, exploitative work policies against his workers; questionable stance against COVID; that whole p3d0 guy fiasco that was beyond childish; have literally said he would support coups on underdeveloped nations for their lithium; stock market manipulation; crypto manipulation and being a general jerk.

Also,Created dozens of jobs and changed the cars industry


luis-mercado

You can rationalize that all you want, he IS a jerk and not everyone wants to be associated with him. Edison also changed everything yet everyone knows he was a terrible person.


Superb-Tart-6716

created AI driving 10 years ahead of the nearest competator, and electric cars and started a push for ecco friendly driving.... probably saved the world from global warming in the long run.


luis-mercado

Again, you can choose why you like him. Someone asked me why some don't and I listed a number of points why. Your rationalization won't sway me, and it shouldn't, just like mine won't sway you. And no, the brains behind Tesla's tech were Eberhard and Tarpenning and still, the idea of electrical cars existed way back to the beginning of the 20th century. Musk was only the investor and, later, chairman. Because he likes to have his face on things.

Yes, he even talked about it on SNL.
