Elon Musk Assures Us That The Concept of Teslas In Tunnels Is 'More Profound' Than It Sounds


I mean, driving a cars through tunnels is something we’ve been doing as a society for over a century, so the bar to being “way more profound” than that sounds, I guess, is pretty low.


The tweet was his response to a fan who posted an earlier promotional image of a futuristic transport pod being lowered into a Hyperloop tunnel via an elevator platform inset into the ground.


Elon just popped on to let her know that, no, Vegas would not be showing anything like that for the world to see, but, again, that doesn’t matter because of the aching profundity of a Tesla driving in a tunnel.


If you don’t believe me, look at this exchange from the same thread, where someone shared a two-second video of driving through the Las Vegas tunnel, with its “new lighting scheme”:


This is waymore profound than it sounds, because not only is Elon building small tunnels to drive Teslas through for short distances with no clear way to scale them up to become anything close to useful, he’s also managed to build infrastructure systems that cause large numbers of people to experience incredible delusional thoughts, and even more people to experience vague and unsettling notions of loss and disappointment, as well as questioning the very idea of human progress.
