Occasionally, we are blessed with a rare gem of news so brilliantly awesome that it doesn’t have to be embellished in any way. About half of such stories these days seem to come from genius billionaire playboy philanthropist Elon Musk.
In addition to Tesla and SpaceX, one of Musk’s eleventy billion little pet projects is The Boring Company. This aptly named endeavor digs giant tunnels for transportation systems called Loops that use giant electric “skates.” He’s already received clearance to build several Loops in major cities and airports.
But if your main deal is digging tunnels, what are you going to do with all that dirt? Well, Musk has found the answer: BUILD A MEDIEVAL WATCHTOWER.
Yes, you read that right. Elon Musk will soon have his very own lordly siegeworks to sit behind and cackle like the mad king he is.
The tower will serve as The Boring Company’s headquarters and will be made from Boring Bricks, a low-cost building material comprised of compressed dirt gathered from all that tunneling. The Boring Company will sell these marvelous, Lego-like blocks that can withstand an earthquake at their own Boring-Brick-and-presumably-mortar store, so you too can build a castle. Or, you know, something less cool.
Elon even tweeted yesterday that the Bricks will be free for affordable housing projects, something sorely needed in California.
Long live our real life Tony Stark.
