Went to Russia to look into buying a refurbished ICBM so he could "stick a greenhouse on it", launch it to Mars, and take pictures of it there, just to rejuvenate interest in space exploration. :bow:

Remember back when SpaceX struggled to land their rockets?

Nowadays:

Also reading that Falcon Heavy would drop the cost of a lunch from the existng 1B to "merely" 90m, which is insane

That's a proper burn out/go crazy story unfolding in front of our eyes Laughing

This can go so many ways Laughing

He can keep smoking weed and become some stoner legend. That'd be good, he definitively seemed on the wrong kind of substance , whether it was coke or some endogenous stress hormone

or it will end with him becoming a Bond villain after all, like we all knew deep down would happpen
