    The Elon Musk Thread

    Mr Musk is always in the news and needs threadicated.

    Today Mr Musk is in the news because he has blown the beans up a strange musician lady and they have made a baby and they tried to call it:- X A-12

    This name was rejected, not for the dodgy AE aggregation but because it contains numerics.

    They have got around it by converting the numerics to Xii so the baby's name is now:- X A-Xii

    It is a boy.

    Cigar for Elon, well done sir.

    Here is the weird GF whose name is Grimes

    Here a link to the ABC article where I found all this out which you will not be able to follow because I can't be bothered doing that thing Dave48 does

    https://www.abc. net.au/news/2020-05-26/grimes-and-elon-musk-tweak-baby-name/12287768

    Grimes took to Twitter just days after the baby's birth to break down the meaning behind each character of the name, explaining that A-12 since changed to A-Xii meant "precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent."

    (I think she means SR-71...)

    The AE is pronounced Ash apparently but the complete pronunciation is unclear.

    Pretty sure Rocket Jesus has multiple threads here Looper. His disciple will be along shortly.

    I was going to call it the Elon Musk Weird SR-71 Baby Name thread but then I thought, if we are going to go on having a separate thread every time he releases a tweet or scratches his bum then we may end up needing an Elon Musk sub-forum to keep them all in.

    This is a bit of spring cleaning for the forum Willy. One Elon Musk thread to rule them all...

    You could do worse than a lovely Australian F-111 armstrong.

    At least your wife won't be able to get the digits in the wrong order in her tweets.

    It looks like a pig, Looper.


    A nice looking pig.

    What is cool about the F-111 Nev is that its beak is the same shape as a kookaburra's nose

    The Elon Musk Thread-img_9652_1_tn-jpg


    This a blue wing kookabuirra which also sports an F-111 snout

    The Elon Musk Thread-female-blue-wing-kookaburra-taking-260nw


    They are slightly smaller than laughing kookaburras

    The Elon Musk Thread-images-jpg

    Also the F-111 undercarriage is very squat and low so the aircraft almost looks like its sitting on the ground.

    Which is not unlike the curiously squat stance of a kookaburra when it is on the ground

    Indeed, very cool, Looper. The kookaburra looks darned good too. And that plane is much more interesting than Elon Musk.

    It's just about as old as the kookaburra too. Aviation antique. Old as I am at least.
