Interesting how the reverse is perfectly legal:

Jim Chanos called Tesla Motors' proposed merger with SolarCity "crazy" and "the height of folly" while outlining his short positions in the stocks on Tuesday.

On passwords..
I saw this article back then, and I use his recommended password idea:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
There's still one scheme that works. Back in 2008, I described the "Schneier scheme":

So if you want your password to be hard to guess, you should choose something that this process will miss. My advice is to take a sentence and turn it into a password. Something like "This little piggy went to market" might become "tlpWENT2m". That nine-character password won't be in anyone's dictionary. Of course, don't use this one, because I've written about it. Choose your own sentence -- something personal.

Here are some examples:

The first segment of this episode is fascinating.

Zoe Chase spent the last several months interviewing a wealthy Dallas Republican political donor.

Un effing believable..

Tldr: way more of daddy's money than brains. It seems a little flattery from Trump the charmer was all it took for dad and junior to toss out their devout Republican values and hand over the cash..

Never forget.

Just to be clear, the "30,000 emails" that Donald Trump wants Russia to find for him - there aren't even assertions of any concealed misdeeds on them. Contrast this to 22 MILLION (yes, million) Bush emails that went "missing" when Congress sought information about the firing of 6 federal prosecutors who were sniffing at Bush-Cheney corruption. 

In 2014, e-sleuths managed to recover a bunch of them, though getting them sorted could take more years.  But the issue is both the amnesia and weird sense of scale displayed by our republican friends. Four volunteers who took an ill-advised risk in Benghazi... versus thousands who died on 9/11 because Bush re-assigned agents away from terror duties. Which got endless, endless hearings?

Millions of deliberately deleted emails pertinent to blatant abuse of power in evading a corruption probe vs a few thousand personal emails that no one even suggests were pertinent to any malfeasance? (See below). Which got hearings?

Cheney companies making BILLIONS off the Iraq wars and more billions sent by Cheney into Iraq, raw cash on pallets, that promptly disappeared, vs a few hundred thousands in speaking fees with no known quid pro quo and those banks due to get broken up by HC?  Which has a lynch mob?

I could go on and on.  But you see, those would be FACTS.  And now you see why Fox and its wholly owned party have declared war on science.

DETAILS: "The e-mail controversy dates back to the Bush administration's 2006 firing of the top federal prosecutors in nine cities. After congressional committees demanded the administration produce documents related to the firings, the White House said millions of e-mails might have been lost from its servers. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the National Security Archive sued over the issue in 2007, arguing the Bush administration violated federal laws that require presidential records to be preserved."

Remember those millions of emails that Chimpy & his crew illegally kept on a private mail server, & conveniently 'lost' when investigators started sniffing around? It's funny how none of the right-wing media thought that was a big deal at the time, isn't it? /s

They would have been able to track what time it was with this, by looking at the actual positions of the planets etc and setting the dials to match.. (I'm guessing). Very handy for navigation on a ship.. And centuries before this came along:

Turns out ancient Greek astronomers had mechanical devices to predict eclipses
Dated somewhere between 150 to 100 BC we've now confirmed that the Antikythera mechanism was capable of predicting the positions of the planets with which the Greeks were familiar—Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn—as well as the sun and moon, and eclipses. It even has a black and white stone that turns to show the phases of the moon. ___They would have been able to track what time it was with this, by looking at the actual positions of the planets etc and setting the dials to match..
