    What would you say? What would you ask him?

    What would you ask him to sign? A Tesla Cap, a visor from your car?

    I'll be able to see him on Thursday, please please send your suggestions! Thank you!

    I've met him more than once for more than 30 seconds at a time.

    I felt it better to listen ... :)

    Asking him for an autograph ... not the kind of thing I do. But that's just me.

    If he volunteered, then I would ask him to sign a check. :) (Of his.)

    "What would it take for you to hire me to do whatever I can to further your mission?"

    I am totally on board.

    I would offer to take his hardest project or market and help him turn that market around. Elon is exactly the type of tenacious leader that many companies need right now. I would work my ass off for this guys mission. I also think he should launch a motorcycle....

    I would also just tell him how important and appreciated the impact of his work is.

    I'd ask him if the Men in Black are treating him well ;)

    Seriously, I'd just thank him and ask him to carry on the good work. Did that at the X reveal 3 years ago. Found it to be even more thrilling than meeting Bill Gates (at his lakeside house!) at his peak in '98.

    I would ask him if Tesla is planning on doing anything to attract more women to the car, you know, because women like ... (What? TESLIVE 2013? Huh? Oh, already been done? Ok.)

    I KNEW it! That was YOU. I was holding Leilani and Talulah back. They were going to hurt you. And not in a fun way.

    I just hope he makes a CSC (convertible, Sunroof, Coupe) or just a four door convertible so I can get one for the wife...

    I still cringe even thinking about that impressive display of self-destruction... I was not enjoying watching it.

    But Elon's response was classic. Q: "What do you think about women?" Elon, somewhat confused: "I like them."

    Then the guy just spiraled in from there.

    Dang it, I was totally going to say that. Okay, I think that I would tell him that I've watched EVERY interview he EVER gave, like EVERY one of them...

    I was thinking, "where's the gong?"

    I would ask him
    "Is JB Straubel here as well?"
