Elon Musk Tweeted Something Clueless & People Are Predictably Angry About It

Clueless billionaires have been in the news a lot lately. While people are always talking about how they manage to avoid paying taxes, lately Jeff Bezos and Virgin's Richard Branson are receiving attention for their desire to explore space. Branson managed to beat Bezos to that goal just this Sunday, but both of these ridiculously rich guys are being accused of being both wasteful and selfish. One of the most popular arguments is that this money could have gone a long way to help people who are suffering on Earth. 

In response to all the space travel criticism, Elon Musk decided to tweet a disjointed, nearly poem-like message. 

The tweet was not well-received. People quickly jumped to drag Musk for the tweet, accusing him of being clueless and tone deaf. And, of course, accusing him of being a bad poet. Even Marianne Williamson chimed in, basically to tell Musk that his priorities were wrong. While we're not ones to join a hate parade, it definitely fun to watch Elon Musk sabotage himself on Twitter. And we're pretty damn sure this won't be the last time that happens.

An Astronaut Just Committed The First-Ever Crime In Space

Well, it appears that we're living in the future now, as the first space crime ever may have just been committed. 

Astronaut Anne McClain has found herself in hot water after being accused of identity theft from her estranged wife Summer Worden. 

Sounds like a fairly regular crime until you learn that McClain had accessed Worden's bank account from outer space, making for an unprecedented case with unclear jurisdiction. 

While the legal authorities try to sort that sh*t out, please enjoy the following Twitter reactions!

Super Blunt Twitter Thread Demystifies Pooping & Peeing In Space

When  Hugo-Award winning writer Mary Kowal penned a New York Times essay about gender bias in space, she did not expect a wealth of responses claiming that women we kept from space travel due to a lack of adequate bathroom technology. The concept that only women would face issues relieving themselves was so preposterous that Kowal took to Twitter in hopes of enlightening the masses with some serious space potty history. 

In the thread, Kowal manages to destroy some seriously absurd bathroom-related gender bias and teach us a whole lot about the process of pooping and peeing in zero gravity. It's an informative yet wild and wildly funny ride, and really leaves us with the desire to observe a glove of purple piss floating out of a space toilet. If Kowal schooled you as hard as she did us, give her a follow on Twitter. She's got loads more wisdom to share.

Informative thread from Mary Kowal about pooping and peeing in space, gender bias.
