This tunnel stuff, what a stupid idea. Who wants to dance around LA when there's internet? Soon nobody will need to go to the office or whatever work. Congestion problem solved. Next.

3:13 "They're right." That just makes me LOVE his personality so much more! It shows that he has nothing to prove. He doesn't even bat an eye when someone disagrees with him, because he's totally secure with his ability to overcome anything. "They're right." He didn't say, "They're wrong because..." How open-minded! Not a "right or wrong" game, but a problem-solving game

So really get him on the topic of the human race survival. But it kinda hurts when he says he does not see himself as a "savior". From my understanding people like him with mostly good intentions, brains and resources could actually be that guy saving the Earth.

I love what he does it's amazing but it's also so much different from what normal engineers do where they usually give themselves constraints in order to make things easier or possible but Elon doesn't do that he treats everything as possible with enough patience and trying and when it comes to things that are not possible at all right now he finds ways to make them as possible as he can he manages to be realistic and optimistic about things

We need to find ways to help people do their work much closer to home. Building roads etc is a temporary fix that will go on forever. We need to solve the problem at its roots. VR is one way for for instance a psychiatrist to have sessions with his/her patient without going anywhere, and likewise for the patient. This will reduce congestion, and polution, and traffic accidents because people will travel less. Transport is expensive and only has one function whereas a personal VR system can be used for a great amount of different activities.
