@Nibby #2 None of this came from the news or from Reddit, or from any other sources you'll automatically try to discredit simply because you can't handle the truth. All of this comes from THEIR OWN VIDEOS uploaded for the world to see because they love to BRAG about their immoral and illegal acts to the world.. Your refusal to consider them part of the same cult is just you distancing yourself from reality like a coward. BTW, the people you think are safe are participating in half the human trafficking and selling of people still happening on this planet, court cases from around the world prove it beyond all doubts. Wake up, stop denying reality.

@TheBlueStig Trust me bud no real Muslim considers terrorist groups such as Isis Muslim in any way and are actively hated by everyone in my country. However its hard to beat an organisation thats funded by America to be a scapegoat and to cause havoc in Arab countries. Also a quick Google search shows that there are about 200 million Arabs, if even half were terrorists/extremists i don't think I'd be living safely in a Arab country. I'm not gonna continue this conversation because its become apparent that you simply have a twisted view of countries outside your area of living and that you'll believe anything you see on the news or on reddit or some shit like that. Also not every Arab country is Iraq and thus not every Arab country is flooded with extremists.

@Sajid Ahmed It's YOUR head that he's living rent free in, you're kissing his ass for this one performance when he didn't write any of it, and has a history of shady crap going on in the industry. Cloud9 was the one who released the info about BlueFace paying for diss battles. He only targets rappers with more followers than he has so he can win some of those followers in the battle. That backfired on him in the battle with Upchurch, he ended up losing a few thousand followers because his raps were nothing but debunked politics and crying about racism that only he could see.

Fun Fact: Mansa Musa, on his pilgrimage to Mecca, historically gave away so much gold, he crashed the economies of the communities he passed through and actually devalued the price of gold throughout the Arabian Peninsula. To fix the economy, he bought all that gold back at a higher price. The man was fucking swimming in wealth.

@Extraordinary Gamer Read my final sentence: “He was an alright dude *by his time.* “ Emphasis on those last 3 words. If you’re going to judge a man in history, you must judge him by the standards and laws of his era, not by ours. Back then, everyone practiced slavery so that makes him unexceptional for his time rather than some manic slaver. But zealotry, especially among the Islamic and Christian community, was also commonplace and the fact he was extremely secular and religiously tolerant makes him stand out. For example, even the most tolerant muslim rulers enforced a system of extra taxation on their non-Muslim subjects called jiziya which they had to pay in return for protection from forced conversion to Islam and for the privilege to practice their religions. Mansa Musa basically said “Fuck that” and ensured that everyone in his Empire could practice their religions freely without fear of persecution; no jiziya here. As I mentioned earlier, the dude was also very secular, promoting the ideas that religious law and state law were separate and were to remain separate, a very progressive notion for his time. So yes, he was very liberal.

@TJ Rex Tesla is overvalued by every metric used to measure stock value. Yes, it is growing fast. But Tesla is currently priced to be worth as much as every single other car company in the entire world. It doesn’t get much more ridiculous than that. It doesn’t matter if you LIKE Tesla or Elon or if they’re helping the environment. The fact is that a stock’s worth is based on the money the company makes, and right now Tesla stock is valued for Tesla making muuuuuuuuch much more money than they do today and will quite far into the future. TESLA will keep growing for years to come, I agree. But TESLA STOCK is something else. It has already grown for the next 10 years or so, lol

Vor Monat

@Jakob Kristensen Sandvik well, what defines a company being worth the price of what its worth? Tesla itself is helping the enviroment on the long run with electric cars, not only that, Elon is the richest man ALIVE because he has MULTIPLE companies revolutionatizing (if thats how you even write it) the world, example: paypal (he's got a percentage), tesla, spaceX and much more. Third : Elon's much MAY go down, but remember, tesla is growing every day for some reason, and you're not the one to deny it, check the prices of the stock, and then look at how many cars/trucks and whatnot are being produced, it shall look like a straight line, its not "skyrocketing for no reason" its actually because if theres more demand, there will be more supply, if theres more supply there will be bigger amounts of money involved, and money involved will bring more and more attention to never investors. The rapid decline of stock prices you're talking about is the same as the gamestop situation, it was worth nothing, and then it boomed away for no reason, after a week it dropped, the same thing cant be applied to tesla, it will keep going up for atleast a couple of years and thats a fact

Vor Monat

@TJ Rex I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. The fact is that Elon Musk was not even close to being one of the richest in the world two years ago. Then Tesla stock skyrocketed. Unlike Amazon, Tesla does not deserve to have such a valuable stock, which makes it likely to go down in the future unless Tesla starts making an absurd amount of money. Most of Elon’s money is in Tesla stock, which makes it likely his money will go down.

@Reygan Briggs Jeff Bezos currently has a net worth around 200 billion dollars, it’s estimated Mansa Musa had a net worth of 400 billion. On a caravan to visit Mecca, he passed through Cairo and literally handed out gold bars to people which absolutely crashed their gold economy because of how much gold was just absently given to their system which devalued any of its worth. But since history is largely euro-centric and Musa was alive during medieval times, he isn’t taught as much as he should because of the perceived lack of historical significance he has. Jeff Bezos’ wealth is already near incomprehensible, Mansa Musa had double that, 700 years ago.
