Never mind, I'll just design a universe.
I'm always pointing out shit that isn't new. One phenomenon that IS new is important "successful" people who don't even listen to their OWN previous actions and experiences. Egotists and manics have always dismissed the experience of OTHERS. When I'M THE GREATEST, nothing done by losers is significant.
Now politicians and economists and "journalists" and "scientists" constantly forget their OWN previous forecasts and newscasts and findings. Today's statement runs directly contrary to yesterday's, and nobody ever notices or asks about the conflict.
Elon continues to reach new heights in both forms of dismissal. He ignores 100 years of manufacturing expertise and builds things his own way, which unsurprisingly fails.
His latest idiocy: He says he can't get enough trucks to deliver his cars as they come off the assembly line, so he's starting to build his own carrier trailers.
Anyone who has built ANYTHING knows that this isn't a quick solution. It will take at least a year to get through the design, tooling, testing, and licensing for a big and safety-related item like a car carrier. But wait! Elon is anyone who has built anything,
and his OWN experience should teach the same lesson.
In this case we didn't even need to make that point, because it turns out that Elon and his staff didn't even do what ANY BUSINESS DOES when it needs to find more of ANY FUCKING ITEM. He didn't CALL AROUND TO SEE IF TRAILERS WERE AVAILABLE. Many truckers and trucking associations have spoken up to say they have plenty of carrier trailers available, but Tesla didn't ASK.
So the whole thing is just an excuse, another dog peeing on his homework, another grandma in the hospital.
But Elon, you don't have a dog, and your grandma is already dead! Never mind, I'll design and build a dog and a grandma. Just give me a few minutes.

Semantic sidenote: This is sort of like shaving a yak,
but not quite the same. Yak-shaving is a long series of steps you have to get through in order to accomplish a seemingly simple goal. Each step is necessary, but you don't know it's necessary until you try to accomplish the step after
it. At each point you find that N-1 must happen before you can get to N.
In this case the extra step WASN'T necessary at all, but Elon made his cultists believe it was necessary, and made his cultists believe that he could do it in a day.
