    “And let’s see how Earth responds to that,” Musk replied.

    I’m getting strong Kanye vibes from Elon these days.

      Kanye’s straight up bipolar, maybe even schizoaffective. Musk still just looks like a narcissistic asshole, and the grandiosity about “Earth” caring about Twitter is par for the course

        I’m sure the ketamine also doesn’t help, in Elon’s case.

          As someone who takes prescribed ketamine on the regular, it blows my mind that he can still hold the shit opinions he has. I only ever feel more connected to everyone and more present with the small joys around me.

            I’m guessing he takes it in vastly more quantities than you and also that it would affect someone who is already an asshole narcissist a different way than it would someone like yourself.

        Yep. Can’t put my finger on what’s happening there exactly, but there’s some kind of mental health crisis going on and it’s very public.

      A recent comment of mine:

      In an old interview, Mr. Narcissus [Elon Musk] said he may have bipolar disorder; he said he experiences “great highs, terrible lows, and unrelenting stress”.

      He has doubts because his highs and lows follow events in his life, whereas episodes from bipolar disorder often appear without triggers. […]

      We’d know if he went for an evaluation/possible diagnosis, but I cannot even imagine him doing it.

      Kanye West is usually manic when he acts this way. I guess this supports Musk’s suspicion.

        Maybe the events are what follow the highs and lows.
