Mad Genius

Is Elon Musk, the Tony Stark of our world, OK? Is he under a lot of stress lately? Did he stop taking his meds? Was he perhaps kicked in the head by a donkey? 

The reason I ask is his recent behavior seems a bit... eccentric. Even for one of the richest and most brilliant men in the world.

A few months ago he was stuck in traffic, and decided to... well, read his tweet:

Yep, that's right! Musk hates traffic so much he started The Boring Company, which constructed a, well, a boring machine, to tunnel under LA so he can avoid the clogged freeways!

Then last month he apparently didn't have anything better to do, so he decided his Boring Company would start selling flamethrowers for $500 a pop. Yeah. Goddamned flamethrowers!

I'm sure nothing could possibly go wrong with that idea! There're already far too many guns in the hands of the population, now I gotta worry about being burned to a cinder if I cut off someone in traffic?

Then to top it all off, this week he launched his own car into space— complete with an astronaut dummy at the wheel— for no other reason than because he could.

While some of these projects might seem cool, they're definitely not normal. They're the type of thing someone with a brilliant imagination, unlimited funds and too much time on their hands would come up with.

What next? Cloning dinosaurs for real? Building an army of Gundam-type robots to protect our borders? Writing his name on the Moon with a giant laser?

I really think someone needs to check on him, and make sure he's OK.
