Elon Musk has attempted to get John Carmack to join SpaceX
I have great admiration for John’s engineering ability! What he did with Armadillo was incredible.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 4, 2021
I’ve tried to convince him many times to join SpaceX, but he has always declined (sigh).
The exchange took place on Twitter, with Musk stating he has unsuccessfully attempted to convince Carmack to join SpaceX a few times.
Fallout x Bojack Horseman
BOJACK?! https://t.co/88v3lsrGA1— Oshry @ NZGDC (@DaveOshry) August 2, 2021
Maybe it's time to get back into Fallout 76. I do love that franchise. And I'll take any excuse to play Fallout in co-op.
You picked up the tongs? Better clack-clack
Same thing applies to an electric drill. Vrrr-vrrr.
When can I play Halo Infinite again?

I miss fighting against the bots.
Try not to think about the skeletons
"Have you tried... not thinking about skeletons?" my therapist asks.— Johnny Normality (Still Spooky Mode) (@Probgoblin) February 7, 2014
I look at her.
I look at the skeleton inside her trying to trick me.
You are a mecha.
Have you considered bees?

[me from a distance] just open it
I hear it's a good strategy in Hunt: Showdown.
Thank you for the clarification
Every time I talk about milk, I clarify “not breast milk.” It’s unnecessary and it makes people uncomfortable.— jess a brambles company 🔶 (@jessokfine) September 22, 2020
I love these sorts of useless add-ons to statements that really change the feel of them.
Have you thought about climbing anything recently?
Being a man isn't about what genitals you have it's about whether or not you are constantly thinking about how you'd climb on top of any given roof— Ron Iver (@ronnui_) August 3, 2021
I bet you know how'd you get onto a roof. Or up a tree.
Ratios =/= good
math teacher: what can you tell me about ratios?— the hype (@TheHyyyype) August 4, 2021
me: they're bad
math teacher: what
me: it means you're cancelled on the internet
Avoid them at all costs. Don't give them a fraction of your attention. Uh oh.
