    Elon Musk Wants to Turn the LA Underground Into a Giant Slot Car Race


    Who’s the craziest ultra-rich, would-be supervillain in the whole wide world? It’s Elon. Elon Musk.

    During a Friday morning TED talk, the professional technology brainstormer offered an animated glimpse at what his new tunneling project, The Boring Company, could one day create. It looks like a post-apocalyptic slot car race that takes place underneath the city of Los Angeles, shielding Tesla owners from the radiation bombarding surface dwellers in the wake our inevitable judgement day. It looks pretty cool, though!

    Think of it as a future free of traffic and sunlight. On the surface, Musk explained, cars would drive onto sled-like devices that would descend into the bowels of the Earth, where Musk’s Boring Company has built a vast network of tunnels. From there, apparently, the sleds connect to a track that sends the cars zooming through the tubes at speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour. There would be no need to fret about crashing, either, since some supercomputer (somewhere) could carefully direct traffic so that each car and sled rides at a safe but efficient distance from the next one. When all is said and done, you could get from Compton to Malibu in, who knows, maybe a few minutes.

    The Great Lie of Fraud Street. Future profits belong to the current shareholders. As long as we all buy the lie the house of cards remains standing. Long live the PEG ratio.

    Why would anyone want to go to Malibu from Compton? Or vice versa? The tunnel will keep the beautiful people from the nasty street people on their way to Rodeo for lunch.
