    Saw Elon (playing himself) on The Big Bang show yesterday. He was washing dishes alongside the Engineer at the Homeless Shelter Thanksgiving Day dinner. EM rules!

    What I love about The Boring Company are the low expectations. Nowhere to go but down.

    When I read the home page, it sounds like EM wrote all of that. I hear it in his voice!

    Also on the media page is this video which is still unlisted with only 19 views (I guess 20 by now):


    "This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing."

    It's OK.. I thought twice before sharing.

    Go 3D is easier up in the air. No expensive infrastructure like tunnels needed. If authorities will allow drones for parcel delivery, why not beef-up the rotors and airlift passengers? Electric rotor technology is constantly evolving, so are lightweighting and battery technology. If we expect cars to ‘2D-maneuver’ autonomously through dense city traffic... then it should be less of a problem to have rotor-equipped vehicles auto-pilot themselves through the air, where there’s lots of 3D space to maneuver... Right?

    A. I don't think they're going to allow drones at scale for parcel delivering.

    B. Noise. Wind. Things falling on my head.

    In Elon we trust.

    I'm in favor of drones as long as it is legal for me to bring them down with birdshot while on my own property.

    Claustrophobia would prevent me from using one of these long tunnels packed with cars traveling at high speed.

    How many others feel the same?
