This article details a new Google Chrome extension, as well as promises of free test rides in Musk’s future LA tunnel. It also recounts recent news of Musk’s Twitter trolling of Warren Buffett.
Grimes’ boyfriend, a.k.a. Elon Musk, made headlines last week for a bizarre Tesla earnings call. Now, he extends a new offer to his legion of fans and critics alike.
Also, what was that he said on Twitter about cryptocandy?
Technology as a Quality of Life Measurement
Grimes, for those of you who don’t know, is a prominent musician and producer. She also seems to be wearing a Tesla-inspired necklace in this picture, so she’s probably a big fan of Musk’s work.
But the best part about that Elon Musk News is that someone created a Google Chrome extension. This extension turns all instances of “Elon Musk” into “Grimes’ boyfriend”.
It’s the simple pleasures in life that make it worth living, don’t you think?
First Boring Company tunnel under LA almost done! Pending final regulatory approvals, we will be offering free rides to the public in a few months. Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project. Strong support from public, elected officials & regulators is critical to success. As mentioned in prior posts, once fully operational (demo system rides will be free), the system will always give priority to pods for pedestrians & cyclists for less than the cost of a bus ticket.
Musk to Offer Free Tunnel Rides Pending Approval
The Boring Company’s tunnel in LA will be the first in Musk’s vision and it’s almost finished. If Musk gets regulatory approval, he offered free rides for the first few months.
The tunnel stretches for two-miles beneath SpaceX’s Hawthorne, California headquarters. Theoretically, the skates can carry 8 to 16 passengers along its metal rails at around 124 mph or 200 km/h.
The Boring Company wants to expand the tunnel system in LA, as well as Washington D.C. and Chicago eventually. But regulatory approval must come first.
Musk Jokes About Cryptocandy to Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett took a shot at Musk in a Berkshire Hathaway meeting. He told him to “stay away from See’s Candies”, but Musk didn’t hesitate to fire back.
He took to Twitter, saying he was going to start a candy company and began joking about cryptocandy and Willy Wonka. He clearly referenced Warren Buffett in another tweet, mocking Buffett’s financial “moat” concept in the process.
