This theory could easily replace existing religions with something more believable than a bearded man sitting on a cloud. In this case our supreme being would be a software engineer. If we are made in "His Image" than it follows that this engineer is most likely human as well and we are in a "planet evolution simulator", built by humans in "base reality" (probably. Nothing suggests that the simulation itself isn't recursively running in another simulation, a case of AI gone haywire). All hail our prophet Elon!

This is insane! Besides an enforcement issue (Will the government check this man's belongings to make sure there are no backups?) The photos are his property as he is the photographer. This is a disturbing ruling. Now the subject gets to decide on how the artist portrays it. I modeled nude for a painting class a decade ago, can I have all these paintings destroyed?

When you build this on your own, there is no need to explain every step in the way to someone else, give regular demos, document, and process input and reviews from many sources. Besides, everyone involved needs to get paid, and they work only 40 hours a week max where this kid can pull 100 hours a week for free if he's dedicated. 500k may even be cheap for a one off.

The VW cheating resulted in two positive outcomes for the public. First, buyers have to pay far less environmental tax. Second, since the engine runs much more efficient in normal mode, resulting in lower diesel consumption. So they did most of their customers a favor while pissing off the authorities.
I'd say having a bad crash safety record is a lot worse than that.
