Elon gets 5 Billion dollars (tax payers money). Elon makes cars for a high price. Elon gets more money, Elonbuilds rockets, where cameras always start do mailfunction JUST before the rocket lands. If i would have known that it is so easy, i would have done it. But i always thought it was fraud, well nevermind.

Okay Elon. You reading? Good. End the flat earth society. Take their leader have him JOIN you in one of your rockets and take a little trip up. The solution is a rocket. That doesn't take a rocket scientist to come up with a solution. END the flat earth controversy. All you rich think tankers covertly gave rise to the problem. The reaction to the problem has taken place. Now implement the solution to it. If only one of these interviewers would confront you on camera about it so you are in a corner and have to publicly address it. Everyone else knows the earth is not flat. Why not simply put an end to the controversy and take all the well-known flat earth leaders on a little space trip? As if YOU can't afford it. Or is there a reason all you futurists NEED flat earthers around? You want to be a philanthropist? Drag them up above with you. Let them bring their own cameras if they want.

I think without Elon Musk we would make the progress but it would be much slower in small increments made by hundreds of people.

i think self driving cars will make this obsolete, depending on how it unfolds. if it gets you there faster by and lot, then it will still be a powerful substances. and because it cant grow as fast, imagine a whole city with self driving cars, now that want to bring in this, it could be done on the base of its speed but it all comes down to its competitive advantage. if it dosnt have manufacturing problems. then i imagine it only being in a few city's like the ones with over traffic. but even then it could simply not be obsolete or profits will be low. depending on hows its done of course. so id say threat of substances is high, competitive is low, suppler power low, buyer power medium to high, barrors to enter meditum or high. what if you calopses a road and cost tax payers millions? this is my comparative industry stucutue anyyse in 10 years if theres any other views and you wish too contribute please do

"It must be real because it looks so fake." This old teenager is nothing but a professional sci-fi story teller for the billions of naive kids or "adult" slaves to keep them in awe instead of thinking straight. Cf "Starman in Space"… with his childish little stutter, he is the favorite of all the Cabals' clowns.

do viewers understand how ego centric and clueless musk is? the cars hes building are childish hot rods for fat cats when what the world needs is a very small cheap cheap durable zero carbon car for cities and meanwhile hes not working on a totally zero carbon new way to move lots of people across large areas, perhaps electric or mag lev trains. instead hes advancing AI and trips to mars which the sci fi movies show is a foreseeable disaster, and his idea of car tunnels would not reduce traffic, its going to massively increase it by inviting more cars.

It wont invite new cars, how will more cars be on the road? There will be *less* cars on the road because there are tunnels underground.

Your search - bishop jason 31 seconds ago (edited) Rebuilding U.S. deterrence to preserve peace through strength must be our Nation’s top priority. The unprecedented era of peace that followed World War II revealed that the free world is safest when America is strongest. The slow depletion of our military in recent years has resulted in an escalation of threats the world over, which President Trump is committed to reversing.The economy has come roaring back to life under President Trump. The stock market has hit record high after record high, helping more Americans build wealth and secure their futures. Through needed tax cuts and reform, the Administration will bring jobs back to our country. The President is helping U.S. workers by expanding apprenticeship programs, reforming job training programs, and bringing businesses and educators together to ensure high-quality classroom instruction and on-the-job training. - did not match any documents.

I have a question for Elon, Would you allow other cars to go through the tunnel or only Tesla? and I do think underground tunnels would solve the problem but to use mass transportation instead of individual cars!!! it called Subway. I am a big fan of Elon and solar power which Elon did an amazing job
