BILLIONAIRE tech titan Elon Musk has revealed he doesn't smoke weed – but does rely on the drug Ambien to get to sleep. The revelations came during a tearful interview where the Tesla boss "choked up" several times while discussing his tough year. Musk was recently accused of smoking cannabis after he recently sent stock markets into a frenzy with a tweet. He posted about how he would turn publicly-traded Tesla into a private company once its stock price hit $420. The number 420 is famously code-slang for smoking marijuana, in reference to the date April 20, or 4/20 in US date formats. But speaking to the New York Times, Elon Musk revealed how it wasn't weed that inspired the number. He said he chose the number based on a 20% growth of share price, which worked out at $419 – but he rounded up. "It seemed like better karma at $420 than at $419," Musk told the NYT. He added: "But I was not on weed, to be clear. Weed is not helpful for productivity. "There's a reason for the … [Read more...] about Tearful Elon Musk reveals truth about ‘weed smoking’ accusations and admits Ambien drug habit during interview about his ‘excruciating’ year

ELON Musk's dastardly plan to nuke Mars to make it habitable for humans just hit a major stumbling block. A new Nasa-backed study claims that jump-starting the Red Planet's atmosphere with a thermonuclear strike simply won't be enough to transform it into a new Earth. The idea, famously pitched by Musk in 2015 on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, is known as terraforming and involves releasing enough of the carbon dioxide held in the planet's surface to thicken its atmosphere. This process could theoretically raise temperatures so that water could remain in liquid form. Pumping greenhouse gases into the Maritain atmosphere would see humans wilfully recreating the same effect that's fuelling climate change on our planet right now. "The fast way is to drop thermonuclear weapons over the poles," Elon Musk told Colbert. Which prompted the late night chat show host to compare the tech billionaire to a super-villain: "Superman doesn't say, 'Let's drop nuclear bombs.' That's Lex Luthor, … [Read more...] about Elon Musk’s ‘supervillain’ plan to NUKE Mars to help humans live on red planet rubbished by experts
FRAUDSTERS have hijacked Elon Musk's Twitter replies to circulate scams in the wake of his apology to the Thai cave rescuer he called "paedo guy". The swindlers are posing as Musk on the platform using fake profiles and tweeting links to shady web pages designed to trick victims into forking out virtual cash like Bitcoin and Ethereum. "I know that sometimes people can get angry and voice an opinion that looks aggressive. Reacting in the way I did was not a good thing," reads the scam web page set up by the con-artists. It continues: "As such I thought of a cool way to make amends with anyone who feels offended. A way to get yourself free crypto. How does it sound?" The scammers add that sending in three Bitcoin or 30 Ethereum will net you the grand prize of a Tesla 3 electric car. There also links on the page that direct users to sites asking them to make transactions using the Bitcoin wallet Electrum. Needless to say, this has all the warning signs of an online scam. After The … [Read more...] about Fraudsters using Elon Musk ‘paedo guy’ controversy in sneaky Bitcoin scam

ELON MUSK has tweeted that he's building a cyborg dragon, whatever that means. The Tesla and SpaceX chief offered no explanation about the barmy invention. Let's pause for a second and break that down literally: a cyborg is a being with organic and mechanical body parts, and a dragon is a mythical animal usually portrayed as a scaly, fire-breathing serpent. Definitions aside, we're still no closer to getting to the bottom of this blunt, but also strangely cryptic, tweet. Musk has played with fire before, building a Boring flamethrower (which takes its name from the droll title of his tunnel-drilling firm) and flogging it for £355. All 20,000 units of the insane (and wholly irresponsible) tool were snapped in just four days. Oh btw I’m building a cyborg dragon— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 25, 2018 He's also taken to Twitter to unveil Boring hats and Tesla tequila – so is this cyborg dragon just the latest in a line of Musk merch? And will it be available to the … [Read more...] about Elon Musk says he’s building a ‘cyborg dragon’ – should we be worried?
