As mentioned before, Peter Thiel's reputation as the smartest guy in the room relies heavily on the time he was alone with Elon Musk and David Sacks.

And misc.

Makes me want to cut Madame Web just a little bit of slack.

Even in that orchestra, you know the drummer was cracking up.

No, really...
