* Murky water, zero visibility
* Water not likely to recede for months
* A Thai Navy Seal diver actually died trying to get supplies to them

* So Elon took to Twitter after someone suggested he help

* Tiny, kid-size escape pod

* So the question remains, does this actually matter or was this an attempt by people with a financial interest in seeing Tesla stock go down to make money?
