I'm sure you know the difference between a rocket and a shuttle, but then again I'm not so certain.


Nope, I'm totally confused. I think the only way I could be more confused is if I thought a guy without any type of rocketry design experience was actually designing rockets all by his lonesome.

Political science is actually a decent degree if you want to get into analyzing policy, which is what the science advisor does. The science advisor does not do science.

Did someone say he was designing rockets all by his lonesome, or is this your version of widening the goalposts?

Again, rockets, not shuttles.

Nope, just refuting your funny claim that because he's the 'lead designer' he somehow doesn't need people to build the rockets at Space X he didn't design.

You mean like the Douglas DC-X rocket? That kind of rocket?

Maybe Elon the Mooch built John Titor's time machine and went back a couple decades to design that one too.

Probably because things like that are actually said and meant on these boards all the time.

I seem to forget making the argument that he doesn't need people to build the space x rockets. Maybe you can show me? I'd hate to come away with the impression that you're making stuff up out of thin air.

Go back and re-read your first reply to me where I said he needs to hire people to do that.

Or don't. It's okay of you don't understand.

I read it. It doesn't say what you claim I said. Maybe you can quote me. Help me out here.

I'd hate to think you're misrepresenting me in bad faith.

No, your inference*, which you are now squirming around in, does that for you.


*That the Mooch, being the 'lead designer', somehow didn't need to hire people to design his rockets as I clearly stated he did

Ever think about running for public office or doing something to change that?

Thats the best advice you can give? The stupidest thing one can do is join up to play along with their game. I don't play their game. I'm not even in the stadium.

That includes struggling against the system. The best advice for people like you and all those that starred you is to disconnect.

Stop supporting the system, stop paying taxes, don't fight, don't go to war, 'Wardaddy' .

I know. Can it get any more weird than when people say, "Just have faith in your gubment"?

Playing little piggy in a strawman. Nowhere did I imply nor say that Elon Musk builds rockets by himself, that he manifested his designs without reference to previous designs, or that he didn't hire people to help design his rockets. Bad faith, or comprehension, one or the other.

All of this is besides the point anyways.

Elon Musk has an economis degree. I guess he can’t make spaceships.


Translation: Mooch doesn't need a engineering degree to 'make spaceships'.

Me:

He can't, which is why he pays people to do it for him.


Translation: His econmics degree means he needs to hirer people with engineering degrees to 'make spaceships'.

You:

He’s the lead designer at SpaceX.


Translation: I didn't realize he mooched the deigns off NASA since I didn't bother to educate myself about Mooch and his businesses, all I cared about was his degree.

Knock off the tit for tat and please stick to the topic instead of derailing. This is getting old and if you can't play nice and stay on topic, please move on.

Do not reply to this post.

I already understand English. Again, nowhere did I state what you claim, as is evident by your fatuous "translations".

Besides, my point is that you do not need a degree to be qualified for politics. That way lies technocracy.

No where did I say otherwise, you do however need an engineering degree to design rockets despite what one's self-appointed corporate title may be.

I say question them all. Anyone who wants to be in government is questionable.

wtf?......a science advisor HAS TO KNOW SCIENCE!!!!!....how could you possibly give advice on something if you haven't a clue about the subject???.......are you trying to appeal to stupid people, or are you just joking?

James, you've been here as long as me, this place has seen it share of self-appointed experts on all subjects and topics who freely dispense advice regularly. The medical and legal advice is always some of my favorite.
