    That lie has been debunked countless times. His father may be wealthy but is by no means rich. Elon Musk came to Canada, then USA on his own. With his first company he could not afford an apartment, he slept in the office. He had nothing then.

    Musk's heavy goods vehicles have issues. Trucking companies make money by how much they can pack into the trailer. If Musk's trucks weigh more than the conventional trucks, then less cargo and less revenue. Freight companies don't care about chrome and badassery. They're in to to make money.
    pues, estamos aqui

    ^ He is very motivated, has confidence and power and works hard. He knows how to bully people to get his way, so in that respect I'd say he's smart and successful.

    Is he smart, intelligent, a balanced thinker - no.

    "Smart" in a self-serving and getting stuff done kinda way?
    Cycling should be banned!!!

    Smart as in head of engineering at SpaceX not only in title but actual engineering input. Still, even if less than he used to be in the early startup days of SpaceX.

    What's more, the FDA approves it. Very high hurdles to that. Though , unlike Tesla and SpaceX I don't think he is personally involved in the development process.
