The psychopaths among us -- Between one and three per cent of the population could be certifiably deemed psychopathic,

"One of the misconceptions about psychopathy itself is that people think a psychopath goes out and kills people. By definition, they are somebody that is recklessly indifferent to any physical, emotional harm they may cause," criminal mind expert Steve van Aperen said.

often people get confused between the terms psychopath and psychotic. The distinction is reality. Those suffering from psychosis have lost grip on reality. Those deemed psychopathic are very much aware of it, and are attempting to control it.

Elon Musk sees himself – because his fans support him in this ludicrous picture – as God of a sort, the most important man in the world, revolutionizing life on Earth 

 

So why should such a God be affected by some complaints by mortals? Such as the Tesla shareholders who expected a profit in the most recent quarter?

 

Or why should such a genius be even affected by the pests known as the shortsellers who dare to say that Tesla Inc. is overvalued by more than one order of magnitude? Or even by the SEC that is probably going to complain that he just robbed the evil shortsellers of $1.3 billion by such a clever "420" tweet? This is so ludicrous, isn't it? Gods – and there is really just one God, Elon Musk – should stand above the laws and above everyone else, right?
