14/16, but considering I'm a big Musk I should've gotten more. Good quiz!

I've never really followed the guy outside of watching the launches cause I live in Florida, doing a small report on him in high school, and seeing Teslas, but I got 13/16

I like his ventures, makes you believe in the boundless possibilities of human thought and endeavour, bit of a nob at times though.

I think it's pretty accurate, he can be a bit of a nob but his endeavours are inspiring. He's never done anything reprehensible enough to deserve all the flack that people give him though.

During the Thai cave incident he accused one of the rescue divers of being a paedophile because they didn't want to use his idea. That was pretty reprehensible.

ya, I read that story. he put his foot in his mouth by saying something really stupid. but lots of people do that without also doing good in the world and they don't get as much hate as is directed at Elon. I also think your definition of reprehensible is a bit soft.

Yeah, for now the cost-benefit analysis of his existence pretty clearly favors the "benefit" side. He seems to be getting more erratic though, so let's hope he doesn't go off the deep end in the future. He could become a supervillain pretty easily.

Can anyone illuminate me into why the number 420.69 is funny? It must be that I'm no longer a teenager, but I fail to see why it's fan (if it's not just the 69 as a sex position)

420 relates to smoking weed and 69 is what you thought it was

Maybe you should rephrase the question to “Which country were the trapped kids located in?” Right now it sounds like the Thai government was trying to keep them trapped in that cave.

Not really. If the last word was "by" instead of "in," then yeah

I sincerely hope this Musk fascination here is ironic... isn't it?

Why? His companies have pushed space travel forward, improved on renewable energy, increased the number of electric vehicles on the road therefore reducing the use of fossil fuels etc etc etc.
Sure he says some dumb stuff sometimes but whether or not you like his personality, he's an interesting guy.

Not ironic in the slightest. He's the most interesting billionaire in the world by a huge margin. We need a hundred more like him and I'm sure we could deal with the extra noise on Twitter. Who reads that crap anyway?

> We need a hundred more like him No we don't. The existence of billionaires is morally wrong. Musk isn't the worst billionaire, but that's not saying much.

While I do agree that the existence of billionaires is an indication that a very small number of people control the majority of the wealth in the world, I don't see that as a knock on him as a person. He made his money and now he's making huge bets to try to change the world. He's done nothing wrong, besides saying dumb things on twitter.
