Elon Musk - 50: the strangest antics of a billionaire and inventor
Today, June 28, the engineer, entrepreneur, inventor, investor, billionaire, CEO of Tesla and SpaxeX turns 50. We decided to recall his most striking actions and decisions, which will help us to be in his place at least for a few minutes.
Sold all the houses and bought a box house for $ 50
Elon Musk began living in a rented $ 50 prefab house in Boca Chica, Texas, where SpaceX builds its starships. LiveMint.
Musk now lives in about 400 square feet (37 sq. M).
Musk tweeted a few days ago informing his followers about the sale of his last remaining home.
Musk wrote: “My main home is literally a $ 50 home in Boca Chica that I rent from SpaceX. It's pretty cool though. "
He also wrote: “Sold my homes except for one in the Bay Area (San Francisco) that is rented out for events. I decided to sell my last remaining house. This is a special place, ”Musk wrote.
He also said that his current focus is on creating "sustainable energy" for the Earth and "protecting the future by making life multi-planetary with SpaceX."
Last year, the 49-year-old first announced plans to sell his homes and most of his property to contain criticism of his wealth and allegations of tax evasion.
Now, Teslarati said, Musk has started living in a $ 50 rented prefab house in Boca Chica, Texas, where SpaceX builds its starships.

20x20 devices can be purchased from the company's website for $ 49, or as little as $ 500 per month. Houses can be built in less than a day.
Smoked weed on camera
Only he can go viral due to the fact that he just smoked a joint, and then because of this become a meme, writes Mensxp.
He was selling real flamethrowers, and he actually made $ 5 million. Who cares about an automobile company or a space company when they can make money selling flamethrowers to people.
No one can argue that he is more popular on Twitter than most people. He's funny, he knows everything and regularly changes his name on the site when a new meme appears. It's safe to say that he is the main Twitter celebrity.
He sent the car into space
He actually did it - he sent the car into space. How does he even come up with such a thing? We all probably think of strange things, but obviously we can't follow through. It's good that there is Elon Musk, who does so many random things, for example, sends a car into space.
When Cybertruck was launched, everyone thought it really looked like that weird looking machine that we all drew when we were kids. He revived this car.
He wants to get to Mars and can really do it
He is obsessed with Mars, no one knows why. But what we do know is that he really wants to move to the red planet, and most likely, he really will. If there is a person who can move to another planet, it is definitely Elon.
He has rockets
Pretty obvious, but also pretty enviable. This dude has rockets.
He created a really cool and interesting company. Basically, it aims to create a network of tunnels through which cars will ride on electric skates. Sounds futuristic, right? A company like this deserves an equally cool name, right? No, Elon, being Elon, called it "Boring Company", although in general it is not boring at all.
X Æ A-XII Mask
In 2020, a son was born to a Canadian singer of Ukrainian origin Grimes and Elon Musk. The child was named X Æ A-12. That is, his first and last name is X Æ A-12 Musk.

At first, everyone decided that Musk was just joking on Twitter. But soon followed by confirmation from Grimes herself. Yes, the head of Tesla did not lie - their son is really called X Æ A-12, and this is not just a random set of letters. Each of them has its own meaning. Grimes tweeted about this. Here's how the name of their son is deciphered:
- X is an unknown variable
- Æ - according to Grimes, so in Elvish AI is written, that is, artificial intelligence (artificial intelligence). The singer claims that Æ in Elven can also mean “love”.
- A-12 - in honor of the American reconnaissance aircraft Lockheed A-12, the predecessor of the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (the favorite plane of Grimes and Mask). A-12 is also called the "Archangel." Grimes wrote SR-71 instead of SR-17, but Musk corrected it. The couple explains their love for SR-71 as follows: no weapons are installed on the scout, there is no protection either, the emphasis is on speed. Useful in battle, but does no harm.
Grimes gave two additional explanations: “A” in X Æ A-12 can also be seen as a reference to her favorite song “Archangel”. And “X” - to the symbol of 2020 according to the Chinese horoscope, a white metal rat.
Later, Musk and his wife changed their name a little, since the laws cannot use numbers in the name. The name of Elon's son is spelled as X Æ A-XII Musk, and pronounced as Ex Ash Hey-Twelv Musk.
