Yeah I fucking love this. "Sam Altman asks the Saudis for eight trillion dollars" is, to the WSJ, "Sam Altman fundraising off his latest AI idea."

You could ask Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, GE, UnitedHealth, Meta, Pfizer, Anthem, GM, Coca Cola, Ford and intel for all their cash on hand

Then ask Nasa for their entire 2023 budget

Then strip out the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines for two years

Then liquidate Saudi Aramco at current market cap

Then fully absorb Nvidia

and still be 600 billion dollars short

of making Sam Altman's newest plagiarism idea real.
