Elon Musk is worried that WWIII will interrupt his plans for Mars

It’s safe to say that World War II would cause a lot of problems, not the least of which is the interruption of Elon Musk’s plans for Mars. In an interview with GQ Magazine, Musk expressed his belief that another World War is definitely a real possibility, and that it would be “far worse” than any war the world has ever seen.

Anyone who’s been on YouTube for long enough will know that people will make songs about ANYTHING, so it’s not all that surprising that some artists have song about Microsoft on Spotify.

Meeting Elon Musk was one of the best days of Lana Del Rey's life

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned Elon Musk and Lana Del Rey in the same sentence, mainly because there’s pretty much nothing linking the two, but apparently meeting Musk was one of the best days in Del Rey’s life. While she’s mentioned their meeting in the past, she didn’t talk about how much she enjoyed the experience until a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1. This afternoon, Lana Del Rey premiered her newest single from the upcoming Honeymoon, “High by the Beach,” alongside an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1. It was a rare…
