Tesla undecimates its workforce but Elon insists everything's absolutely fine


Re: Undecimate?

Decimate comes from Latin "decimatio" - the punishment for groups of Roman soldiers who committed serious offenses such as mutiny or desertion - they would break them into groups of ten, make them draw lots (one loser per group), and then would those that lost (1/10 of the troops) would be executed.

At least Musk sticks to only killing people who use Autopilot.
